CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENTS

Local Cryotherapy applications are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which stimulates cold receptors all over the body in order to trigger an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, local cryotherapy is comparable to “icing”, although much more powerful and efficient based on our experience. Clients frequently combine this application with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”. As temperatures as low as -240 degrees F can be reached by our devices, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 5-10 minutes, with a benefit exceeding that of hours of icing according to our clients

Cryotherapy is a relatively new form of treatment in which the body is briefly exposed to very cold temperatures in order to promote healing and other therapeutic results. The reported- benefits of cryotherapy include improved circulation, better metabolism, detoxification of the skin, liver and lymph systems, accelerated healing, cellular and tissue repair, and improved immune function. Cryotherapy can pro mote faster muscle regeneration from injuries and quicker recuperation from fatigue. In addition to these health benefits, cryotherapy can also help reduce the pain, signs and symptoms of arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, migraines and psoriasis. It can also promote increased endurance, speed and strength, result in better skin tone, a reduction in cellulite, less insomnia and better sleep, lower stress levels and lower levels of anxiety and depression.Burns 500 to 800 Calories per Session/ Weight Management that helps in Instant Inch Loss as well making you looking young.:

The Use of Cryotherapy in Sports InjuriesThe use of cold therapy in acute sports injuries as well as in the rehabilitation of the injured athlete has become a generally accepted treatment method. Various cooling modalities are used to apply cold to the injured area, e.g. ice packs, ice towels, ice massage, frozen gel packs, ethyl chloride and other vapocoolants, chemical reaction devices and inflatable splints using refrigerant gas. Most clinical studies report that the use of cryotherapy has a positive effect on pain reduction and on the recovery of various injuries. When the physiological processes produced by cryotherapy are examined in experimental situations, some of these reactions differ from expectations. Skin, subcutaneous, intramuscular and joint temperature changes depend on application method, initial temperature and application time. Intramuscular temperature continues to drop after the cooling modality has been removed. Results of various studies are consistent on the effects on neuromuscular and pain processes. Results of studies on cold and blood flow vary considerably, however it appears that blood flow increases with superficial cold application and decreases when cold is applied to large skin surface areas. Motor performance is affected by temperature with a critical temperature being around 18°C, above and beneath which muscle performance decreases. There is also a critical temperature for the application of cold with inflammation and oedema increasing at temperatures below 15°C. Precautions should be taken because prolonged application at very low temperatures could have deleterious effects.

Are you looking for some answers to questions you have regarding cryotherapy? We’ve collected some of the most asked questions and gathered them all in one place. Check out everything you need to know with these cryotherapy frequently asked questions.
2Who developed the first Cryosauna for Cryotherapy treatments?
The first Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) chamber was created in Japan in the late 1970s for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The treatment was not introduced to Europe until the late 1980s and over the course of the last two decades, studies have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory injuries and disorders. Whole Body Cryotherapy was introduced in the United Kingdomonly few years back and Active Clinics is the only company who introduce cryotherapy to whole Midlands.
3How does Whole Body Cryotherapy differ from an Ice bath?
An ice bath is typically a 10 – 15 minute soak in ice water that causes the blood from your extremities to move to your core and lower the body’s temperature. Whole Body Cryotherapy is typically a 3 minute dry cold session where the top skin layers and cold receptors respond to the cold by lowering the skin surface temperature by 30 to 50 degrees. This triggers the bodies blood to move from your extremities to the core. When the session is complete your body is triggered to release anti-inflammatory molecules, endorphins, and nutrient rich oxygenated blood.
4How does the cryosauna work?
The user stands inside of the cryochamber and the certified technician will perform the treatment. The special octagonal shape of the chamber ensures that the clients head remains outside of the chamber during the 2 – 3 minute treatment process. The certified technician will then fill the Impact chamber with Nitrogen Vapor, which will drop the temperature of the chamber to -140 degrees Celsius to -160 degrees Celsius. This temporarily lowers the temperature to the skin’s top layer.
5Is Nitrogen dangerous?
Nitrogen is a common element in the earth’s crust, and makes up 78% of the of the earth’s atmosphere. While the chamber is cooled using liquid nitrogen, the client is in no direct contact with the gas. Cryotherapy chambers have been in use for 30+ years and no severe adverse reaction has been associated with usage of the chamber correctly.
6What do I wear while inside of the cryotherapy chamber and do I shower before or after?
Men will wear cotton socks, cotton underwear, and gloves. Women will wear cotton socks, cotton underwear (optional), sports bra (optional), and gloves. We will supply the cotton socks, gloves, and a robe for your comfort. No metal should be worn into the cryochamber.
7How long does a cryotherapy session last?
A cryotherapy session will last anywhere from two, to a maximum of three minutes per session.
8What can I expect to feel after my cryotherapy session?
During the session clients have reported feeling the body release endorphins, which will make you feel good and energetic. Clients have reported that this effect can last 6 – 8 hours, which like any therapy, can get better the more sessions you have over time. Cryotherapy has been reported by some to prompts a number of positive reactions in the body including a boost in blood circulation, an increase in collagen production, improved sleep, overall increased energy, and an increased metabolic boost.
9How often should I have a whole body cryotherapy treatment?
Your certified technician will work on a detailed plan just for you. For example, some clients may enjoy 2 – 3 sessions per week, while training athletes may feel they want daily whole body cryotherapy sessions for recovery purposes. Your certified whole body cryotherapy technician will work to create a detailed plan that will fit you specifically for your individual needs.
10Can I do whole body cryotherapy if I am claustrophobic?
Yes! Your head remains fully outside of the chamber. The chamber door is magnetic and you can exit the session at any time.
11Will my health insurance cover my whole body cryotherapy treatments?
While treatments in Europe can be covered by medical insurance, we do have clients referred by Physiotherapists and insurance companies for Pain Management as cryotherapy help recover quicker from injuries because of this reason we have so many athletes and other player referred by their clubs for quicker recovery.
12Are there any contraindications to cryotherapy?
You should not use whole body cryotherapy if you have any of the following conditions: You are pregnant, have a pacemaker, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, arrhythmia, acute or recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, severe hypertension (>180/100), peripheral arterial occlusive disease, venous thrombosis, acute or recent cerebrovascular accident, uncontrolled seizures, Raynaud’s Syndrome, fever, tumor disease, symptomatic lung disorders, bleeding disorders, severe anemia, infection, severe claustrophobia, cold allergy, or acute kidney and urinary tract diseases.
