Cryotherapy: The Cool Solution
Imagine walking into a box naked (at free will) that is cooled to a -200 to -240 degrees below zero for 2 to 3 minutes! Imagine the rush your body feels when hit with that freezing cold! Well 2016 is the time to experience this addictive therapy because Cryotherapy is the hottest game in town…. and can now be your experience!
Whole body Cryotherapy (WBC) is when our bodies are exposed to extremely low temperatures for a short duration of time (that can feel like a lifetime), which significantly lowers our body temperature and stimulates our receptors. First unitized in Japan in 1978 to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)…. studies conducted over the past two decades in Europe have established Cryotherapy as a very powerful modality for reduction of inflammation and injuries. Professional athletes discovered Cryotherapy as a very powerful treatment to reduce recovery time and increase performance as compared to the old fashion ice-bath.
How it works: You strip down to your naked self and then pop on a pair of socks, gloves and slippers. While women can go completely naked except for the above…. men must protect their genitals with cotton underwear. The adverage skin temperatures cool to 10* C (50 *F) with the coolest skin temp being 0* C (32* F) all while the core body temperature remains unchanged.
My Experience: The first time I went into the multi-person Cryo-Chamber I had a panic attack due to my breathing. If you gulp for air you will not survive the cold. Calm easy breathes through your nose will help you go the recommended two minutes. My second time in I had a wonderful instructor come in with me and talk me through the process. The experience proved to be invigorating and exciting. My skin looked like a dream and my normal aches and pains subsided for 24 hours. I have also experienced the single tube, which is great for those that want to keep their heads out of the box.
Besides the Cryo-therapy chambers, CryoHealth Care offers the Cryofacial, where the freezing nitrogen is sprayed directly onto the facial skin… along with cellulite treatments and fat freezing. Do I recommend? YES!!! Everyone must experience this at least once in their lifetime. My daughter Beau is a complete and utter Cryo-Junkie…. along with many of the cast from Dancing With the Stars, professional athletes and actors…. they all swear by this therapy!
