WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY
Our Cryotherapy machine runs on electricity which is the future of Cryotherapy! There are no FDA warnings with electric and with over 220 clinical studies done it is now the safest and most effective cold therapy machine compared to nitrogen gas machines. It offers a more evenly distributed cold temperature and it accommodates for whole-body cryotherapy. How it works is by stimulating your body's fight or flight response during each session. It allows the release of adrenaline and endorphins while also stimulating the release of anti-inflammatory properties. This allows for benefits such as athletic and muscle recovery as well as inflammation reduction including chronic inflammation. The endorphins released help with the reduction of stress and anxiety and the adrenaline that is released makes it better than a cup of coffee!
Using hot and cold therapy in conjunction with each other will not only help you feel amazing but also detoxifies and improves immunity, pain and inflammation reduction, and aide in weight loss! How this works is starting with a 30 minute infrared sauna session, then once you are completely dry hop in our whole body cryo chamber for 3 minutes. It has been discovered that heating the body before a cryotherapy session enhances the effects of cryotherapy on its own and increases the the release of norepinephrine. The result doubles the immune boosting pain reducing effects of cryotherapy on its own!
ABOUT OUR CRYOTHERAPY MACHINE
Our Cryo machine is called the Cyclone Double Chamber by Trident Cryo. It is a completely electric machine which means it does not use nitrogen like other cryo machines. The benefits of electric is that there is no FDA warning which means it is safer and is also more effective by offering a more evenly distributed cold throughout the body.
How long is the treatment and what is the suggested length of time to get results?
Treatments last between 2 and 3 minutes. This length of time is all that is needed to promote the desired response such as inflammatory responses, endorphin release, increased energy, and boosted immune system. No session is longer than 3 minutes.
What should I wear to my treatment?
Exposed skin is suggested in order to reach the desired physiological response so there is no need to worry about bringing warm clothes. We will provide socks, slippers, gloves, and suggest you keep your undergarments on.
Is whole body cryotherapy safe?
Yes. The cold temperature is achieved by using electricity to cool the air around you. So the cooling agents never actually touch your skin making the temperature change in the body superficial. Your head will remain outside of the cooling area the entire treatment.
Does cryotherapy hurt?
It is common to associate cold with pain because we often think of ice baths or freezing cold weather. However, because the air around you is cooled you feel it as a cold breeze.
How many treatments will I need?
There is no generalized treatment plan for everyone. The amount of treatments you will need is completely up to you and your wellness goals as well as the conditions you are looking to treat. However, you will achieve longer lasting benefits if you receive treatments on a regular basis.
