Harness the Power of Cold for Total Body Wellness with Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy is a novel and efficient technique that leverages the power of intense cold to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. At Effect Therapy, our state-of-the-art cryosauna exposes your body to a blast of ultra-cold air, initiating a series of physiological responses that can help relieve pain, inflammation, muscle soreness, and contribute to various other health benefits.
Introduction to Whole Body Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is a therapeutic procedure that employs cold to achieve specific results. While localized applications like ice packs have been around for some time, Whole Body Cryotherapy takes this concept to another level. By subjecting the entire body to extremely cold temperatures, it stimulates a range of beneficial reactions aimed at pain relief, inflammation reduction, and muscle soreness alleviation.
The Cryotherapy Process
Upon entering our cryosauna, clients are exposed to a brisk breeze of nitrogen and air at temperatures between -130 to -170 degrees Celsius. This cold exposure activates thermo-receptors in the skin, triggering a series of reactions including vasoconstriction, detoxification and blood enrichment, and eventually vasodilation. The process results in improved blood flow, enhanced detoxification, and enriched supply of essential substances like erythrocytes, oxygen, and collagen to peripheral systems like muscles, soft tissues, joints, and skin.
Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy provides both subjective and objective benefits. Objective benefits include reduced inflammation and pain relief due to decreased blood flow to specific areas and numbing of pain sensitivity in muscles and soft tissues. Subjective benefits include relief from chronic pain, increased metabolic rate, improved immune system, faster recovery for athletes, mood enhancement, and symptom reduction for conditions like MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and DOMS.
Contraindications to Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy is not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions like unstable heart disease, unstable angina pectoris, vasculitis, cancer, pacemakers, circulatory dysfunction, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, congestive heart failure, symptomatic lung disease, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, uncontrolled diabetes, severe anemia, and certain other conditions. It's essential to consult your doctor prior to scheduling a Whole Body Cryotherapy session if you have any medical condition, whether listed here or not.
Risks and Understanding Cryotherapy's Effect on Blood Pressure
Like any therapeutic procedure, Whole Body Cryotherapy carries certain risks, including fluctuations in blood pressure, allergic reactions to extreme cold, anxiety, claustrophobia, and activation of viral conditions. Understanding the effect of cryotherapy on blood pressure is crucial; exposure to cold temperatures causes the vascular system to contract, leading to a temporary increase in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. This effect is reversed once the procedure ends and peripheral circulation returns to normal.
