What is Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments work by subjecting the skin to controlled levels of subzero temperatures in the form of liquid nitrogen vapors. The treatment is conducted in a device called a cryochamber or cryosauna. The cold liquid nitrogen used with Cryotherapy will trigger the release of endorphins, while the enhanced blood circulation will decrease inflammation and stimulate cellular regeneration. Whole Body Cryotherapy triggers an increase in the body’s natural pain relievers and mood-lifting hormones.
The state-of-the-art Cryotherapy chamber fills with nitrogen vapor, lowering your skin temperature. A temporary dry chill penetrates the outer layer of skin. Once out of the chamber, the body immediately reheats. The treatment lasts an average of three minutes. Your head remains outside the chamber, and you can exit at any time.
