Cryotherapy is not a new concept – cold therapy has been used for centuries to control pain and reduce swelling after an injury. Over time, cryotherapy has progressed from immersion in a cold body of water, to immersion in an ice bath and the application of ice packs, to ultra-modern techniques that leverage liquid nitrogen gas to soothe and heal damaged cells.
There are three ways to leverage the amazing benefits of cryotherapy in NYC: Whole Body, Local and CryoFacial.
Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) takes place in a cryochamber, an enclosure that resembles a personal sauna. After donning protective socks and gloves to protect your extremities from frostbite, you step into the chamber and an attendant secures the door.
When you’re ready, the attendant turns on a stream of liquid nitrogen vapor that fills the chamber, rapidly dropping the surrounding space to sub-zero temperatures. After just 3 minutes of exposure, your body experiences the same benefits as a 30-minute ice bath.
Release of mood-boosting endorphins
Relief of tension and anxiety
Enhanced collagen production
Reduced muscle aches and pains
Enhanced delivery of oxygen and nutrients to soft tissues
After an injury or surgical procedure, health-conscious people often want a non-pharmaceutical option for treating pain and swelling. Local cryotherapy directs a controlled stream of liquid nitrogen directly to your healing tissues, to calm pain receptors and reduce inflammation.
In response to extreme cold, your superficial blood vessels constrict, shunting blood and fluids away from damaged tissues and alleviating pain and pressure. As your body warms again, nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood slowly returns to the injured area to promote tissue healing.
A professional facial is the ultimate form of self-care for enhancing your appearance and boosting your confidence. Now you can pamper yourself on a whole new level with CryoFacial, a form of localized cryotherapy for your face.
