Within all of us lies a highly evolved survival mechanism that has been developed over long periods of time in our history on this planet. This Ancient adaptation is crucial to our survival against the elements. Unfortunately it requires getting very cold to awaken this amazing response.
Enter Whole Body Cryotherapy. This process will trick your brain into thinking the body is way colder than you really are, allowing you to tap into this ancient primal power and unleash the healing benefits that so many of us can use in combatting the pain and inflammation we deal with on a daily
We love the cold, we are here to help you harness the power of it…
Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness that dates back to ancient civilizations. Whole body cryotherapy is the modern experience which stimulates the same rejuvenating and refreshing benefits at a whole new level of cold — in just three minutes!! Reaching temperatures as low as -130º Celsius(-266ºF), whole body cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. Cryotherapy participants say they experience a multitude of benefits and it is the driving force behind a new lifestyle of wellness.
The user stands on an adjustable platform inside the octagonal-shaped chamber during treatment which ensures their head remains outside. A technician fills the Impact Cryotherapy chamber with nitrogen vapor, dropping the temperature of the chamber between -100ºC to -130ºC. This rapidly lowers the skin temperature to approximately 30ºF. Nerves in the skin signal the central nervous system activating our “Fight or Flight response”.
Vasoconstriction, our first line of defense begins. The brains sends signals to the muscular and vascular system to constrict and contract. This in turns transports the body’s blood, nutrient and resources from the extremities to the core. Now that the body has transported the blood to the core, it will enrich blood with oxygen, erythrocytes, enzymes and other beneficial nutrients during the hyper-production period. During this time toxins are also broken down and removed. As soon as the session ends somewhere between a minute and a half and three minutes determined by the user’s tolerance, the temperature rapidly rises and the perceived “threat” passes. As soon as the user exits, Vasodilation begins. During this time your body rapidly transports the endorphin, oxygen and nutrient rich blood back to skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. The hazards are very minimal and have been assessed carefully. Protective gloves and footwear are provided for the treatment. During the treatment the technician is present with you at all times and a session can be stopped simply by pushing the door open. We advise that clients avoid using lotions beforehand
Whole Body Cryotherapy allows your body to access & release naturally-occurring endorphins, enzymes, neurotransmitters and nutrients that can relieve pain, enhance mood, reduce swelling, reduce inflammation, boost metabolic activity & rid the body of toxins.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO IT?
Benefits can be obtained from one session due to the endorphin response. We recommend starting with at least 10 sessions as close together as possible to jump start the process. For maintenance, 2-3 sessions per week or as needed per recovery goals.
