Cryotherapy and Mental Health

May 10, 2018




It’s a known fact that three minutes in a whole body Cryosauna can provide you with various health benefits from pain relief to injury management, however it can also improve your mood, reduce anxiety and assist with sleep as well!


During a Cryosauna session, the body’s natural response to the hyper-cool temperatures is to release a rush of “feel-good” hormones.

This can leave you feeling a sense of euphoria for hours after treatment at Cryospa, and can also assist with symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders.


Cryosauna sessions are a really effective way to reduce stress in both a physical and mental state, and after each treatment you’ll be left feeling refreshed, energised and exhilarated.


Take a look at some of the more specific mental health benefits of Cryotherapy below…



Increased endorphin levels






Endorphins are a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system that have a number of physiological functions.

When you experience the Cryosauna, your body releases endorphins, which can trigger a positive feeling in the body. They then help to boost your mood and sharpen your cognitive functions.


Decreased release of cortisol




Studies have shown that another mental health benefit of Cryotherapy is that it has effectiveness in decreasing the release of stress hormone, cortisol – this leads to the reduction of stress levels.



Improved sleep




A single session is all it can take to improve your sleep with Cryospa Canberra. The body responds extremely well to the extreme cold felt during a whole body Cryosauna session.

Whether it be by improving your pain or inflammation, or anxiety; your body will most definitely respond well and provide you with a quality nights sleep after your session.


Elevated serotonin levels




The Cryosauna can most definitely elevate your serotonin levels, which is also a key component in helping fight depression.



Elevation of mood


The rush of endorphins that you feel after a Cryotherapy session will immediately lead to the enhancement of your mood.

This means that the mental health benefits of multiple Cryosauna sessions can lead to the long term stabilisation of your mood, which can give you great long term results.

Besides the great physical benefits of Cryotherapy, these mental health benefits can give you a great reason to incorporate Cryosauna treatments in your daily or weekly routine.

With the session itself only taking three minutes, there are a multitude of both short and long term benefits to this form of therapy.
