Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is the practice of cooling the tissues of the body to create a specific response. For over forty years, doctors all over the world have been excited about the natural benefits of whole body cryotherapy (WBC) for health and wellness. Whole body cryotherapy can be used to effectively improve several conditions and to improve a person’s overall health. If you’re looking to decrease pain, accelerate muscle healing, or simply improve general health and wellness, WBC may be right for you. Inflammatory conditions such as fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and arthritis are chronic pain, redness, swelling, or stiffness caused by the body’s natural response to an injury. Because whole-body Cryotherapy enhances the body’s natural healing mechanisms, WBC can be a very effective anti-inflammatory treatment for the following conditions, among others:
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder caused by overstimulation of your brain’s pain sensors. Because whole-body cryotherapy works by manipulating pain sensors into implementing a heightened level of your body’s natural healing mechanisms in response to cooler temperatures, many patients have experienced long-term relief from fibromyalgia thanks to WBC.
Psoriasis is caused by the overstimulated growth of skin cells. During the whole-body cryotherapy session, this growth is temporarily slowed so that the body can focus on transporting blood to extremities to keep them warm. After the session is complete, skin cell growth is “reset” back to normal levels, resulting not only in the effects of psoriasis being minimized but also in a healthier, more youthful complexion.
Whole-body cryotherapy was developed in its original form in Japan to treat rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation. The cool temperatures from our Trident Cryotherapy Chamber gently force inflammation to subside, providing relief from joint pain for most patients immediately after use.
Depression and Anxiety
The ultra-cool air used in WBC causes the brain to release a higher-than normal level of endorphins and other “feel-good” hormones. Because of the increased endorphins and adrenaline levels after a session, many users have reported enhanced mood and increased energy thanks to WBC.
Benefits of whole-body cryotherapy for health and wellness may include:
- Reduced inflammation
- Reduced psychological stress, anxiety, and depression
- Increased energy
- Faster metabolism
