Whole-body cryotherapy is the modern application and stimulates the same rejuvenating and recovery benefits at a whole new level of cold in just three minutes.

Whole-body cryotherapy uses cold temperatures to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

How does it work?

Whole-body cryotherapy exposes the body to cold temperatures for a short period of time. The person stands in a chamber that is cooled with liquid nitrogen to a temperature of -220 degrees Fahrenheit. This extreme cold causes the blood vessels in the skin to contract, which reduces the amount of blood that flows to the rest of the body. The reduced blood flow causes the body to release endorphins, which are natural painkillers. The cold temperatures also help to reduce inflammation.

The science behind cold therapy and what makes whole-body cryotherapy different from other forms of cold therapy like ice baths, ice packs, and general exposure to cold temperatures.

When it comes to cold therapy, there are a few different options that people can choose from. These include ice baths, ice packs, and general exposure to cold temperatures. However, whole-body cryotherapy is a bit different than these other options.

Whole-body cryotherapy exposes the body to cold temperatures for a short period of time.  The cold temperatures in cryotherapy can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and the healing time of injuries.

Ice baths, on the other hand, require the person to sit in a tub of cold water for a prolonged period of time. This can be uncomfortable and even dangerous for some people. Additionally, ice baths don’t provide the same level of cold as cryotherapy, which means that they aren’t as effective.

Ice packs are a more targeted form of cold therapy and can be placed on specific areas of the body. However, ice packs can be uncomfortable to use and don’t provide the same level of cold as cryotherapy.

Exposure to cold temperatures can also help to reduce pain and inflammation. However, this method is not as effective as cryotherapy and can be uncomfortable for some people.
