Frequently Asked Questions
Cryotherapy is a form of therapy that uses extremely cold temperatures to stimulate the body’s natural healing and wellness processes. Cryotherapy can be applied to the whole body or to specific areas, such as the face, joints, or muscles. Cryotherapy can help with various conditions, such as pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, insomnia, skin problems, and more.
Cryotherapy works by exposing the body or a part of the body to very cold air or liquid nitrogen for a short period of time, usually between 2 to 10 minutes. This causes the blood vessels to constrict and reduce blood flow to the treated area, which reduces inflammation, swelling, and pain. At the same time, the cold exposure triggers the nervous system to release endorphins, hormones, and neurotransmitters that have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and mood-enhancing effects. The cold exposure also stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that improves the elasticity and appearance of the skin. After the cryotherapy session, the blood vessels dilate and increase blood flow to the treated area, bringing oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells that promote healing and recovery.
Cryotherapy is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner who follows proper protocols and precautions. The equipment used for cryotherapy is designed to maintain a safe and consistent temperature and to monitor the skin temperature and the duration of the session. The practitioner will also provide you with protective clothing and accessories, such as gloves, socks, slippers, ear muffs, and masks, to prevent frostbite or damage to the sensitive areas. The practitioner will also instruct you on how to breathe and move during the session, and will supervise you throughout the process. Some minor side effects, such as redness, tingling, or numbness, may occur after the session, but they are usually temporary and resolve within a few hours.
Cryotherapy is not painful, but it can be uncomfortable or unpleasant for some people, especially during the first few sessions. You may feel a sensation of coldness, tingling, or prickling on your skin, but it is tolerable and not harmful. You may also experience some shivering, goosebumps, or chattering teeth, but these are normal reactions of the body to the cold and will subside after the session. Most people find cryotherapy refreshing and invigorating, and report feeling more alert, energized, and relaxed after the session.
Cryotherapy can offer a range of benefits for the body, mind, and spirit, depending on the type and frequency of the sessions, and the individual response. Some of the potential benefits are:
- Pain relief and inflammation reduction: Cryotherapy can help ease pain and inflammation caused by injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or other chronic conditions, by reducing the production of inflammatory mediators and increasing the release of natural painkillers. Cryotherapy can also help speed up the healing and recovery process by enhancing blood circulation and tissue repair.
- Stress relief and mood enhancement: Cryotherapy can help lower stress levels and improve mood by stimulating the release of endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine, which are hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate emotions and well-being. Cryotherapy can also help reduce anxiety and depression by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for relaxation and calmness.
- Sleep improvement and insomnia prevention: Cryotherapy can help improve sleep quality and quantity by regulating the circadian rhythm, which is the body’s internal clock that controls the sleep-wake cycle. Cryotherapy can also help prevent insomnia by reducing stress, anxiety, and pain, which are common causes of sleep disturbances.
- Skin rejuvenation and anti-aging: Cryotherapy can help improve the appearance and health of the skin by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are essential components of the skin’s structure and hydration. Cryotherapy can also help reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging, and pigmentation, by enhancing the skin’s elasticity, firmness, and brightness.
- Metabolism boost and weight loss: Cryotherapy can help increase the metabolic rate and burn calories by exposing the body to cold temperatures, which forces the body to generate more heat and use more energy. Cryotherapy can also help reduce body fat and cellulite by improving blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which help eliminate toxins and excess fluids from the body.
The number and frequency of sessions you need depend on your condition, your goals, and your response to cryotherapy. Some people may notice immediate or significant improvement after one or a few sessions, while others may need more sessions or maintenance treatments to achieve or sustain their desired results. Generally, it is recommended to have at least two or three sessions per week for the first few weeks, and then gradually reduce the frequency as your symptoms improve. Your practitioner will monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan accordingly. The optimal duration and interval of sessions may vary from person to person, but usually range from 2 to 10 minutes per session, and from 24 to 48 hours between sessions.
Before the session, you should avoid alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, and other substances that may interfere with the effects of cryotherapy. You should also drink plenty of water, eat lightly, and wear loose and comfortable clothing. You should also inform your practitioner of any medical conditions, medications, allergies, or sensitivities you may have. After the session, you should drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet, and rest well. You should also avoid strenuous activities, extreme temperatures, or emotional stress for a few hours after the session. You should also follow your practitioner’s advice on how to care for your skin and your health after the session.
