You're about to have an amazing experience. If you have pain in your muscles or joints, soreness from working out or need to increase your recovery time after a surgical procedure or an injury, cryotherapy is your answer.
You've heard of ice baths, ice packs, and cold therapy gels. When you read information about healing from injuries, you'll probably come across something about using cold on the affected area. Cold helps reduce swelling in injured body parts.
What Does The Cold Do?
We're going to spare you the scientific mumbo-jumbo and tell it to you in a way you'll understand...
When you enter our cryosauna, nitrogen is used to freeze the air in the chamber down to between negative 190 and 256 degrees, Fahrenheit.
During the three minutes, you are in the chamber, your body's blood migrates to your primary organs, otherwise known as your core. It does this because it needs to keep these organs warm for life-saving purposes.
When you exit the chamber, your blood begins rushing to all areas of the body it had just left. It floods those areas with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood and endorphins, which your injured, repaired, or damaged organs love. You essentially flood the areas that are bothering you, sore, or hurt, with pain relieving blood.
