Commonly known as cold therapy, Cryotherapy has become increasingly popular among professional athletes, celebrities, fitness enthusiasts, chronic pain sufferers and even the everyday person. Prior to Whole Body Cryotherapy the common Cryotherapy was an ice pack or a cold soak in an ice bath. Today doctors still prescribe the 20 min ice pack and trainers often put their athletes in 30 min ice baths. Cryo Heath makes those old school practices part of the past. One 3-minute WBC session in the M-CRYO cryosauna provides the following benefits:
Cold compress has been used for years to reduce swelling and pain. Cold temperature at tissue depth reduces inflammation. That inflammation around nerve endings causes pain. Cryotherapy helps achieve greater results in a shorter time.
Athletes are very familiar with ice baths. The goal of an ice bath is to use cold temperatures to reduce inflammation and speed-up the muscle recovery process. Today top tier college and professional sport teams have moved toward Cryo Saunas to replace those ice baths. The M-CRYO can deliver the same results as a 40 minute soak in 3 minutes
Exposure to extremely cold temperatures can release endorphins. The release of these endorphins can counter-act depression and help provide better sleep, causing Cryo users to be better rested. Cryo users report that 2 to 3 sessions a week has proved to provide the best sleep they have ever had.
As your body chills in the M-CRYO your blood is pulled into your vital organs to preserve your core temperature. After your 3 minute session your blood supply rushes back to every inch of you extremities with freshly oxygenated blood and your metabolism increases to try to warm up your body. This process has been measured to burn anywhere from 500 to 800 calories. Not bad for 3 minutes!
Whether you’re trying to get in shape, look younger, or feel better, Cryotherapy can help you achieve your wellness goals.
Localized Cryotherapy target specific areas whereas Whole Body Cryo (WBC) targets the entire body. Localized Cryo is a great option to target specific injuries or inflamed areas with sub-zero temperatures. Each session lasts about ten minutes.
You do not need to be a top athlete to reap the benefits of Compression Therapy. Compression Therapy reduces inflammation and fluid collection, removes toxins such as lactic acid, relieves conditions such as heaviness in the outer extremities and can prevent or eliminate first-stage varicose.
Rapid Reboot compression technology speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, and mobilizing waste products such as lactic acid and excess fluids. What you will notice is less stiffness and soreness, as well as increased mobility and flexibility.
Our Cryo T Shock by Pagani is much more that a fat reduction device. This amazing device allows us to program Thermal Shock and Muscle Relaxing sessions. Averaging 12 minutes, The Muscle Relaxing session applies 41°C directly to the affected area to help loosen muscle tissue. The Thermal Shock session allows us to apply alternating heat and cold to sprains, strains, joint injuries, and scar tissue. This process exerts thermal waves through the ligaments and tendons which enhance the clients ability to stretch and increase mobility. This works very much like STEM works on muscle tissue.
