Benefits of Cryotherapy:
Health and Wellness
It’s difficult to envision that just a few minutes could have such a dramatic effect, however, whole body cryotherapy in Altrincham (WBC) has that impact. Following the rushing of blood through your system during your cryotherapy experience, your body releases a flood of endorphins (similar to post exercise) leaving you feeling calm, energised, refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Reduce stress and refresh
Studies have demonstrated that regular whole body cryotherapy sessions have enduring positive effects, including a decrease in the stress hormone cortisol. The less cortisol in your blood, the better you will feel both emotionally and physically. Lower cortisol plus an influx of endorphins and serotonins (the happy hormones) equals an all-around better quality of life.
Reduces anxiety and depression
By acting on the autonomic nervous system and rebalancing the body, whole body cryotherapy in Altrincham counteracts the pressures of daily life, helping to fight stress, insomnia and headaches.
Increases energy levels
The extremely low temperatures in a whole body cryotherapy chamber enacts an amazing physiological response on the body. In order to keep an average temperature, the nervous system goes through a process called vasoconstriction – constricting of the arteries and blood vessels. This cuts down inflammation and more blood stays in the body’s core. That extra-oxygenated blood is then sent around the body increasing energy.
There’s a reason elite athletes and sports teams are embracing whole body cryotherapy as it helps with recovery post exercise, including increasing performance in addition to injury recovery.
Recovery after exercise
As whole body cryotherapy helps to reduce inflammation, pain is reduced and the body is better able to heal itself and promote muscle recovery. Unlike with ice baths you can also resume exercise immediately after a cryotherapy session.
Thanks to the release of endorphins and neuropeptides from a cryothrerapy treatment, you’ll experience a feeling of contentment and calm. Athletes will tell you how important state of mind is for training and motivation.
Besides preventing injuries, WBC also aids in recovery and significantly reduces downtime by helping to reduce inflammation. Likewise, it reduces pain and increases the ability of the muscle to regenerate.
Whole body cryotherapy acts at a muscular and cardiovascular level, therefore, when applied before intense exercise it increases physical performance and resistance. Blood flow increases, natural enzymes, nutrients and hormones are released enabling the athlete to achieve greater power, higher speed, and greater resistance to fatigue.
