You’ll regularly find us talking about the benefits of Cryotherapy.
From improved mental health and wellbeing to faster recovery and performance as well as boosted energy; there are a wide variety of benefits to using Cryotherapy treatments.
But why is it SO important to start integrating it into your daily lifestyle?
Think of your body as an engine.
When not fuelled properly, it slows down and eventually quits.
When not kept well maintained and looked after, it can become run down, tired and eventually fail on you too.
When your car engine light comes on or isn’t performing well, we generally don’t ignore it, and get it checked out by a professional.
But what happens when our body starts to do the same? Our bodies work in a very similar way, and when not maintained well they break, and when we ignore signs and symptoms we can run the risk of injury or worse.
Cryotherapy helps you gain not only results with performance and in life – but also buys you time.
That be better recovery time, more time to focus on your performance, as well as more time to focus on your mental health and wellbeing too.
When you start to prioritise your body, you will be given more time.
Here are just a few of the reasons why Cryotherapy treatments really can help you, and why they can become an important part of your lifestyle.
Cryotherapy helps to increase your body’s metabolic effects, as you’re exposed to the cold-induced airflow.
By hypercooling your body, Cryotherapy assists the release of oxygen and enzymes into the bloodstream, which improves the function of your natural hormones. The lasting effects of this are an increased metabolic rate and a release of adrenaline and endorphins that can help improve fatigue and mood disorders. The metabolic increase can last up to 3-5 days and may become more long lasting with frequent Cryotherapy sessions.
Professional athletes turn to cryotherapy as the ultimate way to both speed up muscle recovery after exercise and significantly reduce delayed onset muscular soreness (DOMS). By exposing the body to extreme cold temperature for a short period of time the rate at which oxygen-rich blood flows through muscles in the body is significantly increased. This is both a safe and natural way to reduce inflammation, accelerating the healing process of damaged soft tissue and sore joints.
Cryotherapy is not only beneficial for athletes but also weightlifters, bodybuilders and regular exercisers as it helps speed up muscle recovery allowing you to reach your peak performance and achieve your goals.
For over four decades, doctors have been using Cryotherapy as a proven natural healing treatment to combat inflammation and pain in many medical conditions including inflammatory disorders, anxiety, joint pain, back pain and chronic conditions, such as psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia and ankylosing spondylitis.
Using Cryotherapy treatments means that you are flushing debilitating toxins from your body’s tissues, which will then help with less pain and greater results whether it be in the gym or on the track or field!
