Chronic Pain Management
Cryotherapy for pain management has shown promising results in relieving chronic pain not only for arthritis, fibromyalgia and other rheumatoid diseases, as well as migraines, muscle soreness, multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain syndromes. Increased blood circulation and energy and strength incurred following repeated cryosauna treatments, along with numerous complimentary mental health effects, promote general wellness and reduced occurrence of chronic pain.
Mood, Energy & Improvement of Depression
During Cryotherapy circulation improves, which causes an increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients around the body. The brain releases natural “FEEL GOOD” endorphins to help cope with the extreme change in temperature. These same endorphins increase energy levels and leave you with a euphoric feeling. These naturally “euphoric” endorphins have been known to improve sleep and aid in the treatment of depression and other mental health ailments. WBC has been successfully studied for depressive disorders and is used for this indication in several hospitals today. Cryotherapy eases depression by triggering a release of adrenalin and endorphins into the blood stream. The release of endorphins reduces stress by decreasing levels of anxiety and irritability.
By exposing the skin to extreme cold the body is tricked into thinking it is in a hypothermic state. This causes an increase in the metabolic rate in order to increase body temperature to protect the core of the body. This process causes between 500- 800 calories to be “burned.” This is why many people have a better nights sleep as well as an immediate boost in energy and a positive feeling.
