Whole Body Cryotherapy is an alternative approach that addresses delayed muscle recovery as well as pain, inflammation, and fatigue triggered by rigorous training and exercise. With WBC it takes just two to three minutes for the body to recover, for getting rid of muscle pain, and inflammation. Furthermore, there is an instant increase in muscle strength and energy. That is the reason why athletes and professional sportsmen and women swear by this treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The extreme condition inside the cold chamber forces the body to respond quickly; the brain registers extreme cold temperature, and the average blood circulation in the outer layers of the skin cannot be maintained. As a result, the body’s nervous system triggers vasoconstriction, which is a narrowing of the blood vessels and arteries, and in turn, less blood enters the tired or damaged tissues where there is inflammation, thus stopping it.
At the same time the blood, rich in enzymes, nutrients, and oxygen, full of hormones, is restricted to the body’s core while still circulating normally. As the brain detects the temperature is back to normal, the opposite happens, called vasodilation and the enriched blood goes back to the extremities of the body, mainly the limbs. This together with a load of endorphins, means a flush of energy and well being overtakes you.
