Cryotherapy in the whole body chamber is a dry fresh, oxygenated air so you won’t experience shivering, goosebumps or other reactions that you might associate with being cold. Because of this technology, unlike and ice bath or immersion, cryotherapy is not painful.
During the treatment, your skin temperature will decrease between 30-45 degrees over 2.5-3.5 minutes inside the chamber. Even if you don’t like being cold, this process will rejuvenate your body, skin and mind, and you will leave feeling warmer then when you arrived.
It enhances full range of motion in muscles and joints; rejuvenates body, skin and mind; supports the circulatory response; stagnant blood within the muscles tissue is reduced or eliminated; increased blood and lymphatic flow; reduced pain with rheumatoid arthritis; reduces pain and spinal mobility improvement; improvement in shoulder mobility, rotation, and functionality; decreased oxidative stress and increased the presence of antioxidants in the blood; improved MS patients fatigue, exercise ability and duration of activity; boosts the Immune system and white blood cell count; weight loss and body fat reduction. The fundamental change in the body caused by whole body cryotherapy is the reduction of tissue temperature. The change in tissue temperature also causes a reduction in core body temperature. This sensory shock leads to an activation of the autonomic, or unconscious, nervous system. When the body is exposed to extreme cooling, the blood vessels are constricted and reduce blood flow to the areas of inflammation. Once outside of the cryogenic chamber, the vessels expand and an increased presence of anti inflammatory proteins are found in the blood.
When you float in a flotation tank, your body absorbs these minerals and your body’s magnesium and sulfate levels increase. This helps to calm your nervous system and enhances your body’s natural ability to heal. This healing is important for your journey inward.
