Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy
In the 1970s, Dr. Yamauchi created whole body cryotherapy to help individuals with pain management, workout recovery, mental well-being, and weight management. This practice has been used by pro athletes for years and has been a significant part of their recovery process. This cold therapy treatment is no longer solely for athletes but has benefits that everyone can appreciate. Some of the primary benefits of cryotherapy include:
- Decreased inflammation and joint swelling
- Accelerated recovery following injury or intense training
- Reduced muscle soreness
- Stimulated collagen production
- Accelerated metabolism
- Enhanced performance
- Improved sleep patterns
With all these benefits, it’s easy to see why athletes and others are turning to whole body cryotherapy as a key element of their wellness and fitness routines. Sports teams and athletes will see improved recovery and performance, getting more out of their training seasons and getting back to normal more quickly following games or competitions. Non-athletes experience anti-aging benefits, enhanced weight loss, and muscle and joint repair.
Cryotherapy has been used and recommended by athletes for years. From fast-paced games to their extensive training regimens, their bodies need to recover quickly and effectively. Take a look at some of the teams that use cryotherapy as a healing treatment to help them get back on top of their game.
