Athlete looking for recovery options?
Have chronic muscle of joint pain?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a hypothermic application involving a 2-3 minute exposure to subzero temperatures while standing within an environmentally-controlled Cryosauna. With 4 different levels to choose from (-249F to -312F), your Groupon will allow you to come try WBC at an amazing price and help your body heal itself!
The CryoSensation Process: As the cooling process begins, the skin’s cold receptors stimulate the body’s sympathetic nervous system causing a rapid return of blood from your distal extremities to the body’s core and vital organs. This “Fight or Flight” response triggers an increased production of oxygen and other essential nutrients in the blood to help breakdown and remove detrimental byproducts in the blood. After exiting the cryosauna, nutrient-enriched blood is returned to the body’s extremities where it circulates into the soft tissue and skin.
Phase 1: Chill out: WBC uses gasiform nitrogen to lower skin temperature to around 30°F while the cryochamber temperature drops to range of -249 to -321°F. During the 2-3 minute session, peripheral blood gets pushed from your extremities to your vital organs while the brain stimulates the body’s organ regulatory functions. The
body’s natural filtration system then works to remove toxins and metabolic waste from your body.
Phase 2: Warm-up: After leaving the Cryosauna, the body begins to warm and allows the
filtered blood to travel back to your extremities. The naturally purified and oxygen rich blood recirculates throughout the body; serving as the catalyst for improved health and wellness.
Phase 3: Recover: For the next 24-48 hours, your body uses the oxygenated blood to
accelerate the recovery process, increase energy levels, and reduce pain and inflammation associated with debilitating conditions or injuries.
