Whole Body Cryotherapy

What is Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy or “cryosauna” began in 1978 with the work of Dr. Yomaguchi of Japan who started using freezing treatments of short duration on his rheumatoid arthritis patient’s skin surface to reduce pain in their joints. But he also discovered there were more beneficial effects on the entire body when exposed to extreme cold temperature than when immersed in an ice bath at 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Some of these benefits include:

  • Boosts energy, Reduces swelling, Eases chronic pain
  • Increased blood oxygenation, Speeds up regeneration and recovery
  • Speeds athletic recovery and enhances performance
  • An increase in internal enzymes and hormones to optimal levels to enhance and accelerate crucial life processes
  • Increases metabolic rate, burning 500-800 calories in the 3-5 hours after the procedure. Weight loss is an added benefit to increased metabolism.

How does it feel?

Imagine you are taking a shower… But instead of water you are surrounded by dry, cold air just for 2.5 to 3 minutes – too little to start freezing; enough to motivate the brain to activate all regulatory functions. This phenomena results in energy boost and skin rejuvenation. The immune system is stimulated, and every organ is affected positively – self-healing of the human body occurs.

Scientifically Explained

When you step inside the cryo chamber and the door closes, you are lifted so that your head is out of the chamber. Vaporized liquid nitrogen will lower the temperature quickly to -270 degrees F. The exhilaration you feel from the cold is accompanied by a rapid constriction of the blood vessels in the skin pushing blood into the deeper layers of the skin. The brain receives a nerve signal that the body’s core temperature may be in danger of falling. Survival resource mechanisms are activated and an enhanced internal cycle of blood circulation occurs, even elevating arterial blood pressure by about 10 points. This endorphin and enzyme enriched blood circulates internally until the procedure is completed. At this time, rapid dilation of the peripheral blood vessels enables this enriched blood to flush out toxins from the deeper layers and nourish the outer layers of the skin. Whole Body Cryotherapy is used to treat dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema because of the enhanced blood and nutrient circulation to the skin. The release of endorphins by the brain increases the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of the procedure.
