Whole Body Cryotherapy
HOW IT WORKS
This modality was first utilized in Japan to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted in Europe over the last two decades have established whole body cryo (WBC) as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries. Using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness. InBody cryosaunas provide WBC as a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. The cryosaunas fill with nitrogen vapor and a dry chill that drops the ambient temperature to a range of -130ºF to -184ºF. During this process, thermo-receptors in the skin send signals to the brain to release endorphins and beneficial bio-chemicals. The blood also becomes optimally oxygenated which accelerates the beneficial results. The vessels and capillaries in the skin undergo a period of severe vasoconstriction followed by severe vasodilation. This causes toxins in the body to be broken down and carried away through these vessels.
When the immune system is activated in this fashion, the body is affected positively. The result of this three-minute session is an energy boost lasting up to eight hours, and skin rejuvenation due to the production of collagen. Athletes experience increased performance and endurance due to faster recovery and healing. Inflammatory, medical and skin conditions have reportedly been significantly alleviated or eliminated through this process. Cryotherapy has been used to accelerate the production of collagen, to improve skin elasticity and texture, to reverse skin aging, and to reduce the appearance of cellulite cryotherapy increases metabolic rate as the body counters the cold by burning calories to create heat. The estimate of caloric burn is an average of 600 calories over the twenty-four hours following the session.
The benefits of whole body cryo are numerous because many of the body's systems are positively affected. The swift, extreme cold triggers a fight or flight response within the body. The blood is boosted with anti-inflammatory proteins, muscular enzymes and higher levels of oxygen. This sudden rush activates the body’s natural healing abilities and releases endorphins. As a result, WBC is very effective for athletic recovery and muscle repair, reduction of chronic pain and inflammation, and skin health improvement through increased collagen production.
