Cryotherapy is the science of exposing the body to subzero temperatures in order to stimulate physical and mental health benefits. It reduces inflammation in the body by boosting a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory chemical in your body. Cryotherapy is also known to boost blood circulation throughout your body—which results in a higher metabolic and caloric burn rate. The treatment also increases the level of endorphins which can elevate mood and reduce stress.
Cryotherapy treatments work all the same principles of reducing the surface temperature of the skin in order to boost blood circulation and reduce inflammation. The increased circulation of healthy nutrients within your body stimulates a multitude of health benefits.

For best results it is recommended that client’s get Cryotherapy 2 to 3 times per week. It is safe to do up to 2 cryotherapy treatments per day but is only recommended for those in heavy training or rehabilitation.
During each cryotherapy treatment the body releases endorphins, which supply your body with a natural source of energy and invigoration. This endorphin energy will last 6 to 8 hours after the session. Like any new regimen, consistency is important to achieve the most beneficial results possible. Cryotherapy effectively decreases pain and increases ability. You will also burn 500 to 800 calories per treatment due to the sharp increase in metabolism.
