The Hidden Benefits of Cryotherapy

Therapy by the cold is well known and used amongst high performance athletes. Indeed, we have all experienced the relief procured by an ice pack, mainly because it acts as an analgesic.It makes sense then, that exposing the body to freezing temperatures ( -180F to -250F) immediately annihilates the pain from a sore muscle or body injury.

Cryotherapy and overall health

It gets more interesting when we consider the multiple hidden benefits of cryotherapy. Our health depends massively on the quality of white cells, oxygen and nutrients distribution system: our blood vessels. They pump in what our organs, tissues and bones need to function and they pump out waste and toxins. When we are ill or in pain, our body naturally kicks in doctor mode to repair and protect.
This is precisely where exposition to subzero nitrogen vapor can accelerate the recovery and promote greater overall health. Because the blood vessels go from rapid vasoconstriction to vasodilation, they open wider avenues for the blood to flow. In essence, the rush after the cold supports the immune system and heals inflammatory disorders.

Cryotherapy and recovery

Exposed to extreme cold, strained muscles recover faster and athletes or fitness addicts can train harder. The release of hormones (mainly endorphins) plays a beneficial role to relieve stress, fight insomnia or depression and sharpen intellectual focus.
The benefits of cryotherapy are well known by medical professionals.  The process is used to quicken recovery after surgery, in cases of arthritis or multiple sclerosis and treat skin conditions.

We can go through a cryotherapy session and immediately feel less pain, but behind the scenes, the procedure has put our body to efficient work from head to toes.

The obvious and hidden benefits of cryotherapy are too good to deprive ourselves of them: an easy, non-invasive process to be stronger, energized and healthier. A procedure that puts our body back to work, boosts metabolism, improves blood flow and oxygenation and relieves tensions, pains and inflammation.
