Cryotherapy - Cryotherapy has been helping people for centuries, previously in things such as ice baths but more recently the Cryochambers that have become popular in America.
Unlike these forms of Cryotherapy, which subject the whole body to extreme temperatures, our unique technology targets isolated parts of the body, resulting in a refreshing, revitalising and enjoyable treatment.
Being in pain can ruin your lifestyle and stop you from enjoying a sport, playing with children, been able to work and much more.
Most pain is accompanied by inflammation, swelling, heat and a redness of skin tone. Chronic inflammation in the body ages us and often leads onto a wide range of diseases such as Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis and Parkinson’s to name but a few. Cryotherapy can assist in offsetting these diseases.
By applying Cryotherapy to an isolated body part, the body is able to deliver all the healing proteins, oxygen, osteoblasts and many more healing functions. The immediate effect of cooling the skin and analgesia lasts for around five minutes, the release of endorphins can have a lasting effect that gives the person a natural high and burst of energy. Where pervious pains and signs of inflammation, as found in blood tests, remain suppressed for weeks to come.
The relief from pain and inflammation can both be seen and felt immediately. The more treatments you have the longer the results can be seen as the body starts to create the pattern of delivering the healing elements and the lymphatic system drains away the damaged tissues and inflammation.
The science behind CryotherapyUK
When the sub-zero temperature covers the skin, the sudden drop in heat stimulates the temperature receptors, prompting the brain to transmit messages throughout the body. Your Capillaries (blood vessels) then undergo severe vasoconstriction to protect the essentials organs and the core temperature from dropping.
While the skin continues to feel the ‘freeze’ the body is sending signals back and forth to the brain, these messengers tell the brain if there is damage to the tissues or bone, or if there is excessive fat cells or cellulite or lack of elasticity, collagen or skin damage. If there are excessive fat cells and cellulite, the fat cells will collapse at a warmer temperature than healthy cells, which reduces the density of fat giving the desired loss in body density and dress sizes.
Further physiological and biological reactions to the drop in temperature are the fight or flight response, which increases the metabolic rate and endorphins. The metabolic rate speeds up and burns between 500-800 calories over the next 24 hours and the increase of endorphins gives a natural emotional high and increase in energy.
Once the skin is able to warm up again vasodilation takes place, where the vessels open up and become wider again. This is similar to floodgates opening, the lymphatic system floods through delivering all the healing proteins, collagen, anti-oxidants – all that the body needs to repair the area, while simultaneously removing all the toxins and inflammation that may have been causing any pain or skin irritations. It’s like your body is able to hit a ‘reset’ button!
