How Does Cryotherapy Work?
Cryotherapy is the use of extremely cold temperatures at minus 110 degree celsius to aid in the treatment of a wide range injuries and conditions.
Cryotherapy works by cooling the entire skin surface; this stimulates the temperature receptors in the skin to communicate with the brain resulting in constriction of the peripheral blood vessels redirecting the blood to the core of the body to conserve heat.
Once the treatment is over the same blood is pumped vigorously back around the body. The enhanced blood supply that Whole Body Cryotherapy stimulates increases the oxygen and nutrient supply to areas that need revitalizing.
