Maybe it’s the weather or maybe I’ve been looking into this remarkable therapy for sometime.
Nonetheless , here’s what you need to know and where you can find these Sub Zero treatments with a never ending list of benefits.
Cryotherapy was developed in the 1970s by Japanese Rheumatologist Toshima Yamaguchi and introduced to Europe, US and Australia in the 1980s and 1990s.
What is Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, sometimes known as cold therapy, is the use of low temperatures in medical and cosmetic therapy. It is a fast and healthy process that accelerates the body’s natural recovery while improving overall wellbeing and energising the body.
Cryotherapy is a dry, non-invasive process that lowers a person’s skin temperature during a session of up to 180 seconds. The benefits of cryotherapy are triggered when you reach -110ºC or colder.
Pain & Arthritis
Cryotherapy’s anti-inflammatory effects can drastically reduce muscle and joint pain. It is also known to help people suffering from Arthritis.
Cryotherapy causes the body to produce a hormone called Norepinephrine. This increases the fat metabolism up to 6 days and the impact of one session is equivalent to burning 500-800 calories.
Cryotherapy can reduce any kind of inflammation on your body with the help of a variety of enzymes and by boosting the immune system.
Cryotherapy can boost your collagen production which is an essential anti-aging building block. Increased collagen can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by plumping the skin and increasing elasticity creating a more youthful and smoother look.
If you suffer from skin conditions such as acne or eczema, you might want to give Cryotherapy a try. Many of the benefits mentioned above play a part in improving the skin by alleviating stress, increasing collagen or reducing inflammation.
