The Effectiveness of Whole Body Crytotherapy Compared to Cold Water Immersion
Freezing water immersion has been used in sports therapy for years, professionals have integrated this practice to assist in the recovery process for sports-related injuries and body rejuvenation. Whole body cryotherapy is a newer practice that has become a popular treatment method for the same injuries. It doesn’t just stop with sports though- Cryotherapy has many other benefits that include weight loss and skin rejuvenation.
Check out the effects that cryotherapy has versus freezing water immersion.
- Faster recovery time:
The recovery time for injuries and muscle/joint soreness is reduced with whole body cryotherapy, leaving clients feeling better within minutes of the treatment. Cryotherapy is shorter as well; freezing water treatment can last for 10 minutes to get the best effects where cold air treatments only last 2-3 minutes.
- Aids in weight loss and metabolism:
The effects that cold air has on the body aren’t just for muscles and joints; they have a profound effect on the metabolism. When going through the cold air treatment the body is naturally losing toxins from within and increasing its metabolic rate, aiding in natural weight loss. Freezing water immersion will only assist with the aiding of muscle and joint inflammation.
- The quick increase in energy:
Up to 38 hours after the treatment the body is in a state of increased metabolic rate and restoration. During this time cells in the body and repairing themselves leading to less pain and an increase of energy.
- Benefits to the skin:
One of the major effects that cold air has on the body is in the skin. While the cold air does help to reduce inflammation in injuries, it can also help to clear the skin. Those suffering from dermatitis, acne, or cellulite can see visible results after one treatment.
