CRYOTHERAPY: 12 BENEFITS TO THIS COOL TREND
Cryotherapy, the new cool trend that has everyone talking. So what is it and why is everyone talking about it? Well lets get right into it. Cryotherapy is the process of exposing your body to a extreme cold temperature of -150 degrees F or less. Why the heck would anyone want to do that! If I wanted to be cold I would have stayed in Chicago right? Well lets take a look at how 2-3 minutes of cryotherapy can benefit you, your body, and your health!
1. INCREASE IN BLOOD CIRCULATION
When your body is exposed to this cold of a temperature your blood moves towards the vital organs of your body. This is natural for the body and as your circulatory system reacts circulation begins to increase and improve.
2. REDUCE MUSCLE SORENESS
As your blood begins to circulate and flow your white blood cell count increases causing reduced inflammation in your body which may lead to muscle soreness subsiding. I don't know about you but after an intense workout I will take anything that will reduce my muscle soreness!
3. PAIN MANAGEMENT
Cryotherapy can help reduce swelling around the joints and get rid of any unwanted pain in the body from over exertion or exhaustion to the body. Once the swelling is reduced range of motion and stability will improve.
4. IMPROVEMENT WITH SLEEP AND INSOMNIA
Cryotherapy leads to a better sleep cycle. I have gotten some of the best sleep of my life after a cryo session and that is no lie! It relaxes your mind and body allowing you to shut down at night and fall right asleep.
5. INCREASE IN ENERGY & STRENGTH
One of the first things you will notice after a cryotherapy session is a rush of energy! That is because your endocrine system is jumping into action causing endorphins in your body to release making you feel all kinds of good! This natural high can last for up to 6 hours.
6. IMPROVE CONCENTRATION & FOCUS
With a better sleep cycle in affect after a session, energy levels become elevated causing you to be more alert and focused and productive the day after.
7. FASTER SPORTS RECOVERY
Every wonder why one of the first things athletes do after performing is take an ice bath? That is because the cold exposure stimulates and expedites the healing process of torn muscles in the body leading to faster recovery in the body.
8. SKIN IMPROVEMENTS
The cold exposure will cause your blood to circulate boosting collagen levels within your skin leading to a healthy glow, smoothing of your skin tone, and a reduction of wrinkles.
9. STRESS RELIEVER & ANXIETY REDUCTION
Cryotherapy activates and releases the same endorphins you experience while working out. The release of these endorphins can lead to stress relief, reduction in anxiety, and can even help those suffering from depression.
10. BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM
Patients have attested to avoiding colds, flus, and other seasonal sicknesses due to cryotherapy. After leaving the cryo chamber your body begins to warm up and as the blood circulates your body releases toxins. As the toxins release your body becomes stronger and ready to fight off your seasonal bugs!
11. PROMOTES WEIGHT LOSS
As your brain signals your body to rush blood to your vital organs for protection from the cold your body heat begins to increase along with your metabolism. As we know a high metabolic rate means your body is constantly burning calories which leads to losing weight.
12. OVERALL HEALTH & WELLNESS IMPROVEMENTS
Cryotherapy is the perfect way to detoxify your mind, body, and soul. Your metabolism, digestion, happiness, mood, and overall health will begin to show major improvements.
