Whole body cryotherapy elicits a strong healing process in the body, healing and fighting aches and pains from physical exertion, injury or autoimmune conditions.
Upon initiation of a cryotherapy session, temperature sensors in your skin begin to detect the cold temperature surrounding you—anywhere from -200 to -256 degrees fahrenheit. The body responds by eliciting a physiological response in which hormones are released, nerve activity is decreased and immune function and antioxidant activity are stimulated. Each of these responses results in a self-healing process in the body.
