3 Benefits of Cryotherapy
If you’ve heard of Cryotherapy, then you probably know it’s a popular treatment for professional athletes and anyone who actively exercises. But did you know there are more benefits to Cryotherapy than just relieving sore muscles?
In this post, we’ll talk about 3 benefits of Cryotherapy that you may not have previously known.
Improving Mental Health
If you suffer from mood disorders like anxiety or depression, then you know how difficult it can be to free your mind. Sometimes thinking only makes things worse.
You need a way for your body to release endorphins and adrenaline to elevate your mood and help you feel better, even for a short amount of time.
Many people have reported that enduring a short Cryotherapy session significantly improved their current mood for a variety of reasons. One reason is that when your body is subject to the freezing temperatures, you can’t think of much else but surviving the ordeal.
Once the therapy session ended, there is a deep physical relief when your body is exposed to the warmth of normal temperatures again. This can support a positive change in mood and is certainly worth trying.
Freezing away the fat has been a weight loss trend for a while, but how does it work?
When your body is subject to extreme temperatures (hot or cold), it has to regulate its internal temperature to protect the vital organs. When your body is shivering from extreme cold (Cryotherapy treatments), it is forced to burn off calories to stay warm.
It’s a wonderfully simple and scientific way to lose fat and is so easy for anyone to do.
Reducing Migraine Symptoms
Migraines can cause some of the most intense pain you may ever feel. A common treatment for migraine headaches is to apply ice packs to the head an neck area. Doing so can slow the intense throbbing pain by cooling the blood in the arteries closest to the skin.
Immersing yourself in a WBC (Whole Body Cryotherapy) chamber or having localized Cryotherapy done on your face and neck can help to alleviate and prevent pain from migraines.
