Why every Athlete needs Natural Cryotherapy!
While working out is important to stay healthy, the recovery process used after is just as important. Pushing ourselves physically but not allowing our bodies the time to rest and heal takes a toll on our overall health and makes it more difficult to have the motivation & capacity to keep pushing. Why Cryotherapy? … it's one of the best ways to give your body the boost it needs to get back to your demanding routine.
Our all natural Chamber has been used for recovery worldwide for over 40 years. By submerging your entire body in a chamber full of forced air which is NOT cooled by nitrogen, your head & body becomes exposed to a myriad of positive effects. Conclusions of the head-to-head study comparing Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC – Electric walk-in chambers at -166°F) to Partial Body Cooling (PBC – Nitrogen saunas a -256°F) were that skin temperature drops in all regions of the body were far more significant in the WBC group. Skin temperature drops are associated with the activation of the Central Nervous System (CNS) and Autonomic Nervous Systems (ANS) causing the release of Anti-inflammatory modulating proteins (norepinepherine) as well as pain modulating endorphines. WBC showed a significantly high (+35%) plasma norepinepherine concentration compared to PBC. The -166°F climate promotes vasoconstriction, which flushes the extremities of blood helping blood flow and reducing inflammation in the muscles. This is caused by the body’s natural reaction to the extreme drop of temperature.
