The Benefits of A Whole Body Cryotherapy Session

In the 1970s, the whole body cryotherapy was created by Dr. Yamauchi to help individuals with pain management, workout recovery, mental well-being, and weight management. For years, this practice has been used by pro athletes and has been a significant part of their recovery process. This cold therapy treatment has benefits that everyone can appreciate. It is no longer solely for athletes . Some of the primary benefits of cryotherapy include:

  • Decreased inflammation and joint swelling
  • Accelerated recovery following injury or intense training
  • Reduced muscle soreness
  • Stimulated collagen production
  • Accelerated metabolism
  • Enhanced performance
  • Improved sleep patterns

With all these benefits, it’s easy to see why athletes and others are turning to whole body cryotherapy as a key element of their wellness and fitness routines. Athletes and Sports Teams will see improved recovery and performance, get more out of their training seasons and get back to normal more quickly following games or competitions. Non-athletes experience anti-aging benefits, enhanced weight loss, and muscle and joint repair.
