Benefits of Cryotherapy

The benefits of cryotherapy: anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, muscle and joint repair and mood elevation.

Combat the loss of collagen and slow the signs of aging

Anti-Aging

Why does the skin all over our body start to wrinkle and sag with age? We lose collagen.

Collagen is a group of naturally occurring proteins and is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin. There are two cryotherapy applications that enhance collagen. The first is Whole Body Cryotherapy. By briefly freezing the outer layer of skin throughout the entire body, the deep layers of collagen are disrupted and respond by creating more collagen. As a result, the skin regains elasticity and appears both younger and smoother.

The second application is the CryoFacial. By focusing exclusively on the face with the local CryoWand, the surface of the face is enhanced immediately as the pores will appear much smaller and all inflammation and “puffiness” in the face is eliminated. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to disappear as your body responds to the cold by producing more collagen. Your face simply looks tighter. Then, with repeated applications, the collagen benefit is apparent as the skin’s actual elasticity is returned to an earlier, younger time in the life of the skin. This is an effective treatment that does not require surgery, down time or pain.

The Cryofacial™ was developed by Dr Kuehne in Los Angeles, and uses pressurized liquid nitrogen vapors that are applied to the face and neck. The cryofacial is very relaxing and thorough. Each treatment features both a scalp and neck nitrogen massage, leaving you rejuvenated and firm from scalp to chest. The skin becomes tighter, more even-toned, and blood circulation is improved.

Optimize your metabolism to achieving your ultimate weight loss goal.

Boost In Metabolism

Successful, permanent weight loss only occurs with an increase in metabolism. Without that increase, you join the ranks of 98% of all dieters who, after five years, gain all the weight back and then some. There’s only a 2% success rate, and that’s the “weight loss” worlds dirty little secret. Remember that optimizing metabolism is critical to achieving your ultimate weight loss goal.

In the Whole Body Cryosauna, we shock the outer layer of your skin with extreme cold temperatures. Your body responds by speeding up its metabolic processes to “warm you up.”  This accelerated metabolism lasts for approximately 5-8 hours and can burn an additional calories during that time.

Now, we have begun to notice that repeated exposure to the Whole Body Cryosauna results in an elevated metabolism 24/7. Translation, you are burning MORE calories each and every day, regardless of your eating and exercise program or whether you are sitting, standing, lying down or even sleeping, simply as a result of repeated Whole Body Cryosauna treatments.

Less soreness = more productive workouts!

Muscle and Joint Repair

Whole Body Cryotherapy reduces inflammation, promotes rapid healing and minimizes pain. You may add a second procedure with Local Cryotherapy to provide more direct cooling to the very specific area which accelerates healing to get you back to full mobility as soon as possible.

When you place force against a muscle, you create tiny little microscopic tears, which then must repair. By utilizing both of the two Cryotherapy treatments, you are able to more effectively heal your muscles.

Less soreness = more productive workouts!

When Whole Body Cryotherapy was first developed in Japan in 1978, it was specifically conceptualized for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory, autoimmune disease of the joints. While incredibly successful for that specific issue, it quickly became apparent that other joints and muscles throughout the body responded to the cryotherapy. Quite simply, people felt less pain and soreness in the injured or affected area.

For joint repair, whether it is the result of an injury, overuse or a form or arthritis, you have two options. First, you may elect Whole Body Cryotherapy, which will reduce inflammation, promote rapid healing, and minimize pain. Second, you may add a second procedure with the handheld wand to provide more direct cool to the very specific area. Cryotherapy is also an excellent choice post-surgery, as it accelerates healing to get you back to full mobility as soon as possible.

The key to gaining strength and a leaner appearance is building lean muscle tissue. Lean muscle tissue is also the engine of your metabolism and optimizing it is essential to reducing body fat and weight. When you place force against a muscle, you create tiny little microscopic tears, which then must repair. By utilizing Cryotherapy you accelerate this muscle repair process, so that you achieve your specific goals much faster.

Reduced or diminished inflammation.

Anti-Inflammatory

When Whole Body Cryotherapy was first developed in Japan in 1978, it was specifically conceptualized for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis – an inflammatory, autoimmune disease. While incredibly successful for that specific issue, it quickly became apparent that inflammation throughout the body responded to the cryotherapy.

By definition, inflammation is “part of the complex biological response of tissues to harmful stimuli, such as damaged cells. The signs of inflammation are pain, heat, redness and swelling, and are truly a protective attempt by the organism to remove the injurious stimuli and to initiate the healing process.” Bottom line, a little bit of inflammation is great, as it is part of the natural healing process. Chronic, rampant inflammation throughout the body is aging us and is the precursor to a myriad of diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and diabetes.

With Whole Body Cryotherapy, inflammation through the entire body is reduced or may be diminished entirely. With Local Cryotherapy, any individual area in the body can be immediately treated and the anti-inflammatory benefits can be both seen and felt immediately.

Mood improvement and deeper relaxation.

Fighting Depression

There have been numerous studies showing that just 2-3 minutes of Whole Body Cryotherapy is beneficial to those who suffer from depression, anxiety or both.

The reason for this response is attributed to hormonal benefits that occur as a result of the Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments. In one particular study, patients who had 15 Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments over three weeks reported that their depression decreased by 50%. That’s a staggering amount of change given the short period of time plus the fact that it takes most classic anti-depressive medications twice as long to achieve any benefits.

Clients report that after finishing a Whole Body Cryotherapy session, they feel an improvement in mood and deeper sense of relaxation and euphoria. They also report that the effects last a long time and, with repeated use, last even longer.
