What Is Cryotherapy?
Developed back in 1978, a Japanese doctor was the first to discover cryotherapy and how it could be used to treat pain and inflammation caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis. When it spread to Europe, the techniques were adopted to be used in hospitals, spas, and athletic facilities. But cold therapy is not a new concept. The use of cold as a therapeutic agent dates all the back to 3500B.C., where it was referenced numerous times in the most ancient medical text known, named The Edwin Smith Papyrus. Currently, the specialized Whole Body Cryotherapy technique has now been proven to help those recovering from injuries, inflammatory conditions, surgery, athletic performance, and strenuous activity. Cryotherapy centers also use it to help enhance the recovery time of those suffering from auto-immune conditions, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, and depression.
At Cryology, we offer various cryotherapy treatments including:
- Whole body cryotherapy
- Local cryotherapy
- Cryotherapy facial
- Salt therapy
- Infrared sauna
- Alkaline water
All of our treatments are non-invasive, non-medical procedures for those who are seeking to improve health and wellness. Our staff will never mislead a client to believe that our procedures will cure them. Although they can offer relief from symptoms plaguing the body and making regular life difficult, it is in no way a cure.
How Cryotherapy Works
Cryotherapy involves lowering the skin temperature for a short time to encourage a recovery response. The exposure to a cold stimulus activates the nervous system and forces blood vessels to constrict, which will reduce inflammation. Blood is re-oxygenated when pulled back into the body’s core. Anti-inflammatory proteins, endorphins and natural opioids are released into the body, successfully alleviating pain and giving off sensations of euphoria because of the activation of the nervous system. When the brief two-to-three-minute session has completed, freshly oxygenated blood will rush through your body carrying nutrients and enzymes to speed recovery.
These techniques are not ice therapy. In fact, ice can often be uncomfortable, and prolonged exposure will do more harm than good. Cryotherapy cold sensations don’t pass through the skin, but the body responds in a similar way and therefore encourages faster recovery. Give us a call now at (631) 321-1080.
