HOW DOES CRYOTHERAPY WORK?
The Whole-body Cryosauna uses a gaseous form of nitrogen to lower skin surface temperature by 30-50 degrees during a two-three minute session. The exposed skin reacts to the extreme temperatures by sending messages to the brain that stimulate natural regulatory functions of the body. In addition, the skin’s exposure to these subzero temperatures trigger the release of anti-inflammatory molecules, endorphins, toxins, and increases oxygen circulation within the bloodstream.
The treatment usually only lasts between 1.5 to 3 minutes, and the cold air does not contain any moisture, nor is there any air current, so it is very tolerable. Towards the end of the treatment, you may get a pins and needles sensation, but it’ll disappear immediately after leaving the cryochamber.
IS ONE CRYOCHAMBER TREATMENT ENOUGH?
Cryotherapy sessions can be implemented safely as often as twice daily. For general use 2-3 sessions per week is the norm. High level athletes have cryotherapy sessions up to 5 times a week.
While every therapy session is beneficial and you’ll feel immediate results, research has shown that you will experience improved and cumulative benefits after a minimum of 10 sessions, within a two or three week period. (To achieve peak performance, professional athletes might benefit from having up to two sessions a day). After that you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (For example, once or twice a week).
