The Greek roots of the term cryotherapy mean “cold cure,” and athletes have been using it for centuries to heal injuries and recover from training.
Treating achy soft tissues directly with ice reduces inflammation and alleviates pain. Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) has the same effect as icing. It briefly chills the superficial layers of the skin, causing blood vessels to constrict and shunt fluids away from the painful region, to reduce inflammation and dull pain.
WBC uses liquid nitrogen gas to rapidly cool the air surrounding your body to subzero temperatures as low as -274º F. Exposure to the cold air plunges your superficial skin temperature to 32º F, with only a slight drop in core temperature. The exposure to cold lasts only three minutes, without humidity or a wind chill factor, making cryotherapy treatments safe and less uncomfortable than submersion in an ice bath.
Whole body cryotherapy is a holistic, noninvasive way to treat painful soft tissues, internal organs and the nervous system. Studies have shown that WBC improves skin elasticity and promotes new cell growth, making it a safe, quick and effective wellness treatment.
Cryotherapy has become popular among physically active people, thanks to athletes and celebrities who sing its praises. Some well-known fans of whole body cryotherapy include:
However, cryotherapy treatments are not only for the rich and famous. Just sitting at a desk all day can profoundly affect your health, draining you of energy and leaving you feeling fatigued and stressed.
Health professionals are beginning to use whole body cryotherapy to treat conditions like osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. WBC has even been shown to ease symptoms of depression and other mood disorders.
Because WBC boosts collagen production, spas that offer skin care services have added cryotherapy treatments to their menu of services. Medical spas offer WBC for everything from postoperative healing to increasing libido.
Improved skin texture and elasticity
Improved hair and nails
Increased metabolism resulting in weight loss
Elevated mood from endorphin release
When you schedule your appointment, a staff member will advise you on what to wear. While you can enjoy your cryo treatment in the buff, you still need to cover your extremities (feet and hands) to protect them from frostbite. At InVita Wellness, we provide everything you need for protection.
Your cryotherapy treatment takes place in a cryo chamber, a safe enclosure from which your neck and head protrude to protect them from the cold. Once you are situated, the clinician will turn on the nitrogen gas, chilling the air in the chamber to icy temperatures. Your session lasts only three minutes, but the effects last for hours.
Once you exit the chamber, your body begins to warm as oxygen-rich blood returns to the cells near the surface. Unlike an uncomfortable ice bath that lasts 30 minutes or longer, you enjoy the benefits of cryotherapy right away. Cryotherapy treatments quickly eliminate stiffness and soreness, and restore pain-free fluid movement.
After your session, you will feel invigorated, with a burst of increased energy and a sense of wellbeing. Cryotherapy treatments boost your immune system and cognitive function, and improve your overall health in countless ways.
