Benefits of Cryotherapy
- Muscle and joint pain relief – many of us have experience icing a sore shoulder or knee. This is actually a form of cryotherapy. A 2017 study published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine reports that cryoteraphy can be effective in reducing muscle pain, inflammation and cell damage. The study also shows that athletes recover quickly when using cryotherapy.
- Weight loss – the theory behind using cryotheraphy for weight loss is that the body will work harder to keep warm. A cryotherapy session can help burn hundreds of calories and repeated use can boost metabolism.
- Younger looking skin – a decrease in temperature helps to decrease inflammation in the skin which can help with many skin issues.
- Mood and energy booster – many people who feel that they have “survived” a cryotherapy session. This euphoric feeling is due to a release in endorphins and adrenalin and gets blood flowing through out your body. This is your body’s natural mood and energy booster. This is sometimes helpful for people who are experiencing lethargy, mild anxiety and depression.
