KRYOLIFE'S WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT
A trained Kryolife KryoTherapist guides you into one of our exclusive cryochambers (a room filled with air cooled by liquid nitrogen) or cryosaunas (an open-topped cryotherapy device). Many compare the sensation to standing in front of an open freezer on a hot day – chilly but tolerable, if not refreshing, and far less jarring than an ice bath because, although the air is extremely cold, it is dry.
After the treatment, you’re encouraged to ride the studio’s stationary bike; engaging in moderate cardiovascular exercise stimulates blood flow and enhances the treatment.
During a 2-3 minute session at -240°F, blood vessels in your skin’s surface and muscle tissue constrict, forcing blood away from the peripheral tissues and toward your core. Here, the body’s natural filtration system works to remove toxins and inflammatory properties of the blood.
After exiting the cryochamber, filtered blood flows back to the peripheral tissues. Now, cleaner and enriched with oxygen, nutrients and enzymes, your blood warms and enriches skin and muscles, and your range of motion increases.
Over the next 48 hours, the process of restoration continues, and your body returns to a better state or condition, with reduced pain and inflammation, and increased energy levels. Recovery times from strenuous workouts and injury are improved and shortened.
