Whole body cryotherapy is the evolution of cold therapy.Traditionally ice baths are used to provide relief. However, whole body cryotherapy takes only two to three minutes and is far less uncomfortable due to its shorter duration. While it serves many purposes, its main goal is to reduce inflammation, pain, muscle soreness or swelling. Additional benefits include toning the skin, improving sleep and managing chronic pain.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
The user stands on adjustable platform inside the octagonal-shaped chamber during treatment which ensures their head remains outside the chamber. A member of the Vereen Team 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.
