Whole body cryotherapy is a cutting-edge wellness treatment that has been gaining popularity in recent years. The technology has been around for decades. This therapy involves exposing your body to extremely low temperatures for a short period of time, typically between 2-3 minutes. The unit I use at RPL can get as low as -28o (Fahrenheit). Although this might sound intimidating at first, the benefits of whole body cryotherapy are truly remarkable and worth exploring.
Firstly, whole body cryotherapy can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This is because the cold temperatures trigger a natural anti-inflammatory response in the body, which can help to reduce pain, swelling, and discomfort. This can be especially beneficial for athletes or individuals who experience chronic pain or inflammation. I have clients that use it multiple times every week.
In addition to reducing inflammation, whole body cryotherapy can also help to boost your metabolism and increase your energy levels. This is because the cold temperatures cause your body to work harder to maintain its core temperature, which can result in a temporary increase in metabolism. This can lead to increased energy levels, improved mental clarity, and a sense of overall well-being.
Another benefit of whole body cryotherapy is that it can help to improve the appearance of your skin. The cold temperatures can stimulate collagen production, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, whole body cryotherapy can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin elasticity.
Whole body cryotherapy can also have a positive impact on your mental health. The therapy has been shown to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as improve mood, cognition, and overall well-being. I embrace the power of cold to extend health-spend.
Overall, whole body cryotherapy is a safe and effective way to improve your overall health and well-being. In his book “Life force” Tony Robbins says “In my experience, it’s been a total godsend…For me, nothing provides quicker, more efficient, and more dramatic relief than stepping into cryotherapy chamber. After just two and a half minutes, I find that almost all of my pain and inflammation are gone.”
Whether you’re an athlete looking to reduce inflammation and improve performance, or simply looking to improve your overall health, whole body cryotherapy is definitely worth considering. So if you haven’t yet, why not give it a try and experience the benefits for yourself?
