6 Key Benefits Of Cryotherapy
Health is wealth and keeping your immune system strong helps your body fight off infection and keep your processes running smoothly. Cryotherapy is a Natural Therapeutic Process that sends messages to the brain to activate the immune system, prompting every organ in the body to heal and repair its self.
During Cryotherapy, the oxygen and nutrients in your blood increases roughly four times in comparison with the normal state of the body. This oxygen-rich blood flows through the body, helping rid the body of toxins and thereby strengthening the immune system.
Cryotherapy increases anaerobic power. The release of nutrients, enzymes, hormones, and enhanced oxygenated blood help muscles and the systematic nervous system function. Cryotherapy also increases pain tolerance to fatiguing exercises allowing for increased performance.
Cryotherapy can reduce pain in a number of ways. First, it reduces inflammation, it can effect the nerve signals and slow down their transmission which may reduce the amount of pain signals to the brain and it increases norepinephrine levels.
People with fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and back pain have also found that cryotherapy reduced their pain. Cryotherapy can not only manage pain but reduce swelling and at the same time increases oxygen and blood flow to the injured area which stimulates the healing process.
Cryotherapy improves blood circulation, which causes an increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients around the body. The brain releases natural “feel good” endorphins to help keep on with the extreme cold temperatures. These same endorphins increase energy levels and leave you with a euphoric feeling, for up to 8 hours
Cryotherapy alone will not cause weight loss, but it could help. In theory, cooling the body makes it work harder, activating its latent recovery potentials to keep warm. A few minutes in the cold can improve metabolism for the whole day.
In terms of beauty benefits, cryotherapy increases collagen production, which in turn tightens the skin and brings forth a youthful glow. Cryotherapy stimulates blood circulation, releases enhanced levels of endorphins and increases the oxygen and nutrient supply to the areas of the body that need revitalizing.
