A True Revolution in Wellness
The first thing you need to know is that cryotherapy works. In fact, it works wonders. It isn’t a fad, or a craze – it’s a scientifically proven process that prepares, heals, and revitalizes the body. In fact, the origins of cryotherapy are based in a clinical medical setting – originally, patients with conditions such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis used this process to help diminish pain and improve overall quality of life.
And today, Whole Body Cryotherapy, which is what we offer at OC Cryosport, benefits people from all walks of life. From elite athletes to those seeking rejuvenation to those simply wanting to feel healthier overall, cryotherapy decreases muscle soreness, speeds recovery, and improves your immune system – and those are just a few of the invaluable results.
How & Why It Works
What’s cool (well, actually quite cold) is that you only spend a maximum of 180 seconds in the cryotherapy chamber. As Whole Body Cryotherapy, your entire body is in the chamber, yet your head remains outside the unit. Once inside our innovatively designed octagon chamber, you’ll experience subzero temperatures created by nitrogen-chilled air, with levels dropping to a range of -190 to -260 degrees Fahrenheit. So, what actually happens?
The extreme cold you’re exposed to triggers the skin’s sensors, which activate a response from your Central Nervous System. In actuality, the body “thinks” it is freezing and goes into survival mode, delivering blood to the core to protect your vital organs. There, your blood collects oxygen and nutrients, and when you step out of the chamber this oxygen rich blood flow back through the body and your extremities, flushing out toxins and boosting circulation. This is truly rejuvenation happening at the body’s cellular level.
