What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a practice of using a "cryosauna" machine to dispense nitrogen gas around the body. While cooling the surface of the body to sub freezing temperatures, the goal of cryotherapy is to activate a beneficial physiological response.

The Healing Power of Cold

Inflammation is the sole cause for nearly every disease or illness the human body experiences. Where there is pain in the body, there is inflammation. Inflammation can stem from a number of sources including injury, surgery or even self-induced inflammation through exercise and strenuous activity. Unfortunately, medications designed to reduce inflammation wreak havoc on other systems in our body causing irreversible damage.

Whole Body Cryotherapy aims to change the way we recover from inflammation & pain. Instead of introducing the body to harmful substances found in many anti-inflammatory drugs, Cryotherapy ‘biohacks’ the body’s nervous system using acute exposure to freezing temperatures to trigger the release of anti-inflammatory agents. The results speak for themselves. Cryotherapy has been utilized since the 1980’s to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, muscle inflammation & chronic pain. We invite you to experience the plethora of benefits that cryotherapy can offer and explore a more holistic, healthy approach to living a better life.

FAQ

Where did cryotherapy come from?


Whole Body Cryotherapy found its beginnings in Japan in the late 1970’s by Dr. Yamaguchi, who first started using freezing treatments on his arthritis patients for pain management. What Dr. Yamaguchi found was that his patients experienced a significant reduction in soreness and joint pain after the drastic temperature decrease of the outer layers of skin. These patients experienced a huge release of endorphins as a result of the cold treatment, leading to a reduced sensitivity to pain and decreased inflammation. Throughout the 1980s, Dr. Yamaguchi and his team found that exposure to rapid, short-term freezing temperatures produce a non-invasive approach to effectively managing pain.




How does cryotherapy work?


At Ohio Cryo, we use a cryosauna chamber built in The United States by Impact Cryotherapy. When it’s time for treatment, a client will strip down to the undergarments and then put on warm mittens & slippers to protect the most vulnerable extremities from the threat of frostbite, as well as a robe. When the client steps into the cryosauna for their treatment, the door will shut and the hood will be closed atop of the chamber exposing just the client’s head. That’s when the three-minute treatment begins and the ultra-cooled nitrogen gas is released, triggering thermoreceptors in the dermis which sends electrical impulses to the brain and central nervous system, sending the body into “Survival Mode”. This process sends hyper-oxygenated and nutritious blood to the body’s vital organs in its core. When the three minutes are up, the client steps out of the chamber and the body immediately begins to warm up to its natural temperature. Vasodilation begins, sending the oxygenated and nutritious blood back out to the body’s periphery. This process provides the body with extra nutrients, rids the body of toxins, produces collagen and activates the body’s natural cell regeneration cycle to produce newer, healthier cells. The end results: a reduction in discomfort & pain in areas of inflammation.
