Whole body cryotherapy is when the air actually drops down to -350 degrees. This much decrease in temperature stimulates a deeper change to the body. The body is going through a big shock and trying to survive. One thing we realize when we are talking about the age related process is if we stress the body a little bit it works much better in the long run. If we control these stress releases, it’s little things that are hard right now. Looking at working out, doing a cold plunge, or sauna. These small stressors actually make our body function and get stronger after. The process is called homeostasis, which is when the body changes, and detects the signal to function positively. Cryotherapy kicks in a bunch of norepinephrines, lots of hormonal changes, anti inflammatory changes, and reduces all of the blood flow just for a minute. Everything squeezes down and the body thinks I need to do some work to survive. When we come out and it opens all that blood flow, now we get fresh oxygen, reduced inflammation, decreased cell stress, and more. One of the things most people don’t realize is that with this your body produces stem cells in response to this. Your body goes through this process and says we might have damaged some cells but I need to replace them. Then placing these cells to take the place of the damaged cells that the cryotherapy produced.
When you do a pemf session you may feel relaxed or a sense of tingling. Those feelings are caused from the oxygen being released to the body.
To produce more assistance to those cells along with that oxygen is when Infrared therapy comes into play.
What infrared does is it will stimulate the mitochondria to produce more ATP. Combining all these services creates that perfect healing environment.
