If you hate the cold, this one’s not for you. If turning yourself into a human popsicle sounds like something you’d enjoy, keep reading. #Cryotherapy is a trend we’ve all seen emerge over the years, so what’s it all about?
Cryotherapy is a form of therapy used to treat pain and soreness. It involves getting into a freezer-like chamber that gets down to VERY cold temperatures. Like...Antarctica cold. But don’t worry, temperature decreases slowly so you’ll have some time to get acclimated.
This extreme cold encompasses the body and kills any irritated nerves. Cryotherapy treatment has been proven to improve recovery, benefits the nervous and vascular systems, as well as improve stamina & energy.
Cryotherapy has also proven to be significant for athlete recovery especially. Say bye-bye to ice baths: cryo chambers are all the rage now. We’ve tried it, we like it, and we recommend it to anyone looking to expand their horizons as far as recovery and overall wellness.
Yeah, it’s just about as cold as it sounds (maybe a little colder) but the benefits can be felt immediately. After you’re done thawing, you’ll be relieved of any soreness and discomfort from your previous workout. So what do you think? Sounds like a pretty cool experience, right?
