Cryotherapy simply put is “Cold Therapy”. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a short (3 minute) exposure to extreme cold (-256 degrees) where nitrogen vapor evenly circulates inside a human-sized tank (cryosauna). Your body is exposed from your shoulders down to extreme cold which triggers a fight-or-flight survival response. This causes blood to temporary leave the less vital areas of your body to go protect your body’s core. Your body will then prepare to fix any potentially damaged organs by pushing more oxygen, enzymes, and nutrients into your blood.
Once you’ve finished your cryotherapy session, your body released the newly enriched blood and nutrients throughout your body, flushing the toxins from your skin surface, joints, and muscle tissues. This feeling will help you free refreshed and rejuvenated. Also releasing endorphins, you’ll instantly get a “runners high,” or what we like to call the “Cryo Rush.” This rush can help promote energy to better your workouts! Take advantage of the rush that cryotherapy promotes to improve your overall mood for the day!
