Extreme cold has been used to treat inflammation for centuries. Beyond the clinical benefits of cold therapy, users generally report the experience as invigorating with improvement in a variety of conditions such as psychological stress, increased energy, improved sleep, and relief from muscle and joint pain.
Where Cold Therapy All Began
Modern applications began during the 1970s in Japan, where cryotherapy treatments were used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Since then, several clinical studies have been conducted in Europe, which inspired the whole body cryotherapy units in use today.
How Cryotherapy Works
The user stands on adjustable platform inside the octagonal-shaped chamber during treatment which ensures their head remains outside the chamber. A technician fills the Impact Cryotherapy chamber with nitrogen vapor, which drops the temperature of the chamber to a range of (minus) -100C to -150C and temporarily lowers the temperature of the skin’s top layer.
The treatment lasts a maximum of three minutes. During the process, the skin sends signals to the brain, which stimulates physical reactions and activates naturally occurring healing resources. Once out of the chamber, the body immediately reheats.
Utilized worldwide since 1979 to enhance recovery for elite athletes, whole body cryotherapy has proven to be a valuable adjunct for speeding muscle recovery and producing a general feeling of well-being. Many professional sports organizations across the globe have incorporated whole body cryotherapy into their training routines.
