Increased Athletic Performance
Cryotherapy triggers your body’s fight-or-flight response. As a result, your body releases adrenaline, and blood flow is directed to the brain and essential organs. Your heart rate increases, so more blood reaches your muscles. This boost of muscle energy means you can train harder for longer to become a stronger athlete.
After your cryotherapy session, your body works overtime to regulate your core temperature. This increase in metabolic activity results in you burning more calories over the next 24-hour period. Studies show that people burn up to 800 calories after a cryotherapy session.
Cryotherapy reduces inflammation and boosts blood circulation, speeding up your recovery time. It is a great passive form of recovery that allows you to rest while accelerating your physical recovery.
Cold Therapy triggers hormonal responses. Some of these hormones are adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins. Studies have shown that increasing levels of these hormones can positively impact anxiety and depression.
Cryotherapy temporarily constricts blood vessels, reducing inflammation and pain by slowing nerve signals to the brain.
As mentioned, releasing hormones promotes relaxation and acts as a mild sedative. The metabolic activity increase helps tire you out by the end of the day, making you tired and calm so that you can sleep better.
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy, and how does it work?
Cryotherapy comes from the Greek words Cryo, meaning cold, and Therapy, meaning cure. Cold therapies have been utilised since the 17th century to help diminish pain.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a modernistic strategy to traditional cold Therapy, which utilises an innovative climate-controlled chamber to deliver various therapeutic and recovery benefits.
WBC is an alternative to cold water therapy or ice products, which exposes clients and athletes to cold, dry air for up to three minutes. WBC is non-invasive and significantly more comfortable than an ice bath or any other traditional form of cold therapy, delivering accelerated results.
During a cryotherapy session, your body constricts peripheral tissues, sending blood from the skin surface, muscle tissue and surrounding joints to the core to protect core temperature. The blood travels to the body’s centre and follows its natural filtration pathway. It passes through the cardiovascular system, cleansed of toxins and pumped full of oxygen, nutrients and enzymes. The body continues to flush the tissue of toxins and circulate blood, continuing its normal flushing process and reaction to subzero temperatures.
After a cryotherapy session, your body immediately returns the enriched blood to the peripheral tissues, delivering blood back to the skin, muscle tissue and surrounding joint space, providing various benefits.
