Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole body cryotherapy is making a swift and chilly entrance as a great booster of the body’s natural healing ability. Immersing your entire body in a pool of freezing air has several benefits that we will discuss here.
Whole-body cryotherapy is plainly and simply a therapy that will not only make you better but make you feel better!
This procedure was born in Japan, developed in Europe, and has taken the United States by storm. More and more people are cashing in on its benefits, and they love it. With a focus on tackling pain and inflammation, this revolutionary therapy also provides a smooth and satisfying experience that positively impacts your entire persona.
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that triggers the body’s natural fight or flight response to accelerate recovery and decrease inflammation throughout the body. After just 2-3 minutes of exposure to the extreme cold (3 minutes max), you will notice a boost in energy, relief of muscle and/or joint pain, and many other positive benefits.
Once inside the cryotherapy chamber, the temperature will drop to -200 to -300 degrees Fahrenheit. At this cold temperature, the body releases endorphins, which help reduce stress and activates the body’s natural pain-relief system.
After one session, the benefits will become evident almost right away. If done regularly, it becomes more effective, and with more lasting effects. In fact, many athletes used therapy two times a day.

How Does Whole Body Cryotherapy Work?
When your body is exposed to the intense low-temperature flash, endorphins and an anti-inflammatory response are triggered. This makes it greatly useful for pain management, which explains why so many athletes use it.
And in some places, full body cryotherapy is used to help with disorders such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, some sleep disorders, and even some mental and emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression.
What Is Whole Body Cryotherapy Typically Used For?
The following are some medical conditions that can be aided with whole-body cryotherapy:
When the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures, it forces the natural flight response, and an anti-inflammatory response is triggered. This is why you get a great sensation of relief after only three minutes of exposure.
Endorphins and Their Effect on the Body
Essentially, endorphins are hormones, or chemical messengers, that the body produces to relieve stress and strain. This hormone stimulates the increased production of dopamine, responsible for the pleasure effects associated with endorphins.
Your body releases endorphins naturally during physical activity. This helps your body reduce the sensation of pain. You also get a positive feeling in your body and these compounds are known as natural painkillers since they activate opioid receptors in the brain that help reduce discomfort and pain.
Endorphin production also gets stimulated through cryotherapy, releasing a cocktail of well-being throughout that has all the benefits we will be mentioning later. The sensation of well-being and pain reduction system are felt almost immediately.
