By exposing the body to sub zero temperature, Cryotherapy is the latest, thoroughly tested, non-surgical treatment that quickly (within minutes) and effectively helps the body to recover, enhance your body's functions and improves physical appearance.
Cryotherapy is the latest craze in Beauty, Sports Recovery and Enhancement all over the World. And now is being used by Asian Games athletes to expedite recovery and helping them to reach peak performance.
WHY CRYOTHERAPY WORKS
Cryotherapy improves blood circulation, increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to bodily tissues and organs, while improving the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins.
Endorphins released as a result of Cryotherapy reduces pain sensitivity and enriches blood that creates favorable conditions for internal organ recovery & regeneration. Every organ is affected positively – self-healing of the human body occurs.
By exposing the body to the freezing sub-zero temperature (upto -130C), the immune system is stimulated, thus raising performance and causing an increase in the metabolic rate. The body shivers from the cold and burns energy in the process (upto 800kcal for 3min Whole Body Cryo treatment).
Doctor Yamaguchi from Japan modernised whole body Cryotherapy in 1978 when he used freezing sessions as a way of improving the body’s immune system when treating patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Cryotherapy was endorsed as a form of physical therapy by a group of European scientists who were developing an Olympic rehabilitation centre in Spala, Poland.
The use of low temperature treatments can be traced back to the Roman Empire, the Ancient Egyptians and even Greek physician Hippocrates, all of whom were aware of the anti-inflammatory and healing capabilities of cold therapy.
