"I’ve Never Felt So Alive,
A Pure Thrill”
Cryotherapy provides a wide range of benefits to athletes and active adults, as well as aesthetic, health & wellness benefits to the general public. Cryotherapy is a natural, safe and non‐invasive treatment that can aid in athletic performance and recovery, pain and inflammation reduction, health & wellness by simply promoting and stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
Cryo for Recovery & High Performance
Intense training, overuse and/or insufficient recovery have been known to cause muscle fatigue, injury, and immune compromise. Therefore, achieving the optimal balance between training and recovery is crucial in maximizing performance and avoiding the feared “plateau” of any fitness program.
During exercise, microscopic tears result from repeated muscle contractions, causing small injures and inflammation to the body. Inflammation is a cell and tissue response to abuse or injury. Chemical signals released by damaged cells result in dilation of blood vessels, swelling, accumulation of white blood cells and warming of tissue.
Cryotherapy can significantly alleviate inflammation after strenuous exercise by inducing an anti-inflammatory effect. This treatment decreases soreness in a post-workout state, and provides pain relief by constricting the blood vessels. Cryotherapy also extracts the ‘fight or flight’ response, which not only decreases inflammation but also affects your body’s perception of symptomatic pain.
Regular use of Cryotherapy promotes anti-inflammatory properties, which decreases recovery time by up to 50%, as a result you improve ability to Train, Recover and Perform.
There are tremendous benefits of using Cryotherapy Pre or Post workout. Prior to your workout for increased energy, vitality and performance, metabolic rate and fat burning. After workout for faster recovery, decreased soreness, pain and inflammation.
Cryo for Weight-loss & Beauty
Exposure to extreme cold during Cryotherapy tricks the body into thinking it’s going into hypothermia, causing it to boost its metabolic rate in order to maintain and increase heat production. This increased speed in metabolism causes the body to burn between 500-800 extra calories. Cryotherapy may be the powerful training partner your weight-loss program needs.
During Cryotherapy treatment the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session. These causes Toxins stored in the layers of the skin to be broken down and flushed away. The intense cold (-250 F) activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving your skin firm and tight. After several treatments clients have noticed the skin becoming smoother and more even toned with regained elasticity and improved overall “youthful” feeling. A reduction in the appearance of cellulite and an increase of the skins elasticity has also be seen in repeated sessions, which are some of the most incredible Cryotherapy’s anti-aging benefits.
Health & Wellness
Cryotherapy is a safe and natural pain therapy that can be customized to your needs, goals, and pain issues. Cryotherapy works for pain by triggering the body’s “fight or flight” response , which stimulates the production of endorphins, therefore decreasing the body’s perception of symptomatic pain. Cryotherapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other pain management techniques such as flotation therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and physical therapy, which enhances the effectiveness and maximizes the benefits. Whether pain or inflammation is keeping you from your favorite activity or hobby such as sports, biking, running or gardening, or if you are simply finding yourself less active and more irritable due to chronic debilitating pain and inflammation, then Cryotherapy is your answer.
When you undergo a session of Cryotherapy the brain releases natural “feel good” endorphins to help cope with the extreme cold temperatures. These same endorphins increase energy levels and leave you with a euphoric feeling for reported up to 8 hours by clients following a session. These naturally boosted “euphoric” endorphins have been known to improve sleep and aid in the treatment of depression and other mental health ailments. Cryotherapy also improves the function of the immune system and decreases stress levels.
