Cryotherapy Benefits Everyone.

Why should you cryo? Cryotherapy has benefits for everyone – whether your needs are preventative or restorative!

Health and Wellness:

  • Skin Restoration
    • Tightens and revives skin to a radiant glow.
    • Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
    • Accelerates cell regeneration and turnover.
    • Skin elasticity is improved.
    • Can diminish appearance of cellulite.
    • Whole body cryotherapy decreases the autoimmune response which is responsible for dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
  • Sleep
    • Whole body cryotherapy increases serotonin levels, a chemical responsible for helping the body maintain consistent sleep patterns, which results in stabilization of sleep patterns and may decrease insomnia.
  • Stress and Anxiety
    • During whole body cryotherapy, the brain releases natural “feel good” endorphins, which lead to mood improvement and overall sense of well being, rejuvenation, and refreshment.
    • Whole body cryotherapy decreases levels of Cortisol (stress hormone), which is known to suppress the immune system.

Inflammation and Pain Management:

Cold therapy has been proven to be effective for centuries. Whole body cryotherapy is widely accepted as one of the absolute best ways to reduce inflammation in the body and accelerate tissue and muscle repair.

Whole body cryotherapy causes the blood vessels in the body to vasoconstric. Vasoconstriction reduces inflammation that is associated with pain.

  • Relieves pain associated with arthritis, rheumatoid disorders, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel.
  • Provides the body with nutrient rich blood.
  • Inhibits inflammation resulting in increased mobility and joint function.
  • Inhibits protein and enzymes that lead to inflammation.
  • Pain receptors can be blocked when the body is exposed to extreme cold.
  • Reported decrease in frequency and severity of headaches, including migraines.

Weight Loss:

By exposing the skin to extreme cold, the body is tricked into believing it has entered a state of hypothermia. When this happens, the body’s metabolism is accelerated and can burn 500-800 calories per cryo session.

  • Caloric burn resulting in reduction of fat.
  • Increase in muscle tone.
  • Energy levels reported to remain increased for up to 8 hours after a cryo session.

Although caloric burn/weight loss can be experienced through whole body cryotherapy, Valley Cryo encourages cryo to be an amazing addition to your existing healthy eating habits and exercise regimen.

Recovery & Performance:

Passionate athletes and exercise enthusiasts embrace whole body cryotherapy for the welcome relief it provides after high intensity workouts.

  • Decreases inflammation and soreness.
  • Accelerates healing by increasing the blood’s oxygen supply.
  • Increase in enzymes and proteins that aid in repairing tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
