Initially developed to treat health problems like rheumatoid arthritis, today’s whole-body Cryotherapy treatments are known for their ability to offer many benefits. When the body encounters the very cold air during a Cryotherapy session, the natural fight-or-flight response is activated. As a result, the body releases adrenaline and endorphins to increase metabolism and energy. At the same time, blood rushes to maintain the body’s core temperature, which increases calorie burn. The body’s need to reheat following a Cryotherapy session also leads to vasoconstriction and vasodilation, which increases blood circulation and detoxification and reduces inflammation. Increased collagen production results from these responses as well.
