Health is such an important aspect of life, determining everything individuals are able to do and the ways in which we are able to live. So what dollar value would you place upon your own health and wellness? A healthy lifestyle is an essential aspect for general wellbeing, allowing an increase in quality of life and therefore bodily functions. Cryotherapy’s ability to increase individual’s health and wellness is unbelievable.
‘Cryotherapy is one of the most all-encompassing wellness treatments to date’ – Sophie Wirt 5/7/18
Cryotherapy improves individual’s wellness in everyday life through allowing for improved sleep, reduced fatigue, a strengthened immune system, boosted blood circulation and increased energy, metabolism and weight loss burning up to 500 calories in one session due to the process of thermogenesis. Through the exposure to extreme and cold temperatures, the body is tricked into believing it is experiencing hypothermia and therefore increases heat production to protect the body’s core and thus causes an increase in metabolic rate. The extreme and cold temperatures associated with cryotherapy allow for an increased endorphin release, whereby it can help to alleviate symptoms such as stress which are directly linked to mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
According to Vogue: ‘The extreme cold lowers tissue temperature, which can result in dampened pain, reduced inflammation, and increased blood flow. Some advocates seek the supposed benefits of skin toning and cellulite reduction; others even credit cryotherapy for aiding in weight loss and alleviating anxiety and depression.’ – Elizabeth Varnell 23/3/18
Within health and wellbeing, cryotherapy allows for transformed skin providing a healthier and brighter appearance through reducing cellulite and decreasing the symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rosacea and acne due to the anti-inflammatory properties cryotherapy provides. The extreme temperature causes the blood vessels to contract allowing for the skin to firm and tighten allowing a fresh and younger complexion, helping to improve and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to the result of regenerated cells. The use of cryotherapy provides further anti-aging properties by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production which can be triggered by the cold temperatures at any age, providing elasticity, smoother, tighter and even skin tones whilst also strengthening hair, skin and nails. By specifically targeting inflammation and giving the body’s internal systems the best opportunity to combat that inflammation we believe Cryotherapy can work in a wide range of situations.
As it turns out, my skin really needed to chill out. I have new respect for the power of cold’ – Rachel Lapidos 25/7/17
Cryotherapy allows for an increase of fresh and nutrient rich blood into the body’s vessels allowing for an increase in natural cell regeneration. Through supported blood circulation, lymphatic drainage is improved and therefore this allows the breaking down and flushing of toxins and dead cells at an increased rate from the body. Essentially, cryotherapy leaves the body feeling reenergised and relaxed whilst looking and feeling healthier.
