What Is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a hyper-cooling process that lowers a person’s skin temperature to approximately 30 degrees F for a period, (up to three minutes) by enveloping the body with nitrogen-chilled air.
What Are The Benefits Of Cryotherapy
When cooled, thermoreceptors in the skin signal the brain to pump more blood to the bodies core to help maintain body temperature. This process is called vasoconstriction.
During this process toxins are flushed from the peripheral tissues and blood is enriched with oxygen, enzymes, and nutrients. Endorphins are also released for further benefit.
As the body warms up again, the enriched blood circulates through the body using a process called vasodilation. As a result, whole body cryotherapy is very effective for athletic recovery and muscle repair, reduction of chronic pain and inflammation, and an overall enhancement of health and wellness.
