What Exactly is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy may seem like something straight out of the movies – looking at you, Austin Powers – but it’s actually a well-known therapy that’s often used by professional athletes looking to naturally boost energy levels and revitalize sore, tired muscles.Let’s take a look at cryotherapy, including how it works and its biggest benefits.

 What is Cryotherapy? 

The idea behind cryotherapy is that by exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures, you’re essentially providing it with the boost it needs to heal faster, restore muscle strength, and treat a variety of other health issues. Patients need only to spend about three minutes in a cryotherapy chamber to start reaping these benefits. 

 The 5 Biggest Benefits of Cryotherapy

 1. Increased Muscle Recovery

This is a big benefit; in fact, it’s one of the main reasons why professional athletes and their coaches are such huge fans of cryotherapy. The hyperoxygenated blood that is delivered to the body’s tissues post-treatment aid in the delivery of antiinflammatory effects that help muscles and joints recovery faster.

 2. Can alleviate common skin problems. 

Cryotherapy has been shown to help relieve symptoms associated with chronic skin conditions, including dermatitis and other issues that can result in rashes and dry skin. 

3. Provides a boost to energy levels.

Want to feel a surge of energy – without relying on coffee? Cryotherapy is perfect for you, the freezing therapy has been shown to boost energy levels, as well as improve concentration and mental focus.

 4. May help with weight loss.

In addition to an energy surge, cryotherapy has been shown to boost metabolism levels, which can help clients get a jump-start on their weight-loss goals.  A single session typically helps burn an additional 400 to 800 calories in the few hours following a treatment session.

5. Can help improve migraine symptoms. 

As cryotherapy can relieve nerve pain around the neck and shoulders, a secondary benefit is that it can help reduce the number of migraines experienced on a monthly basis.
