Cryosaunas

 

 

Cryotherapy    
Rheumatologist Dr. Toshima Yamauchi  made a research with extreme cold therapy in 1978 in Japan.  He used freezing treatments of short duration on his patients with rheumatoid arthritis for pain management purposes, that is associated with the disease. Rapid short-term freezing of the skin surface led to immediate release of endorphins and is more effective than gradual cooling in an ice bath. The word ”cryotherapy” has its origin in Greek words: “cryo” = cold, and ”therapeia” = cure. 
Cryotherapy is a treatment, which involves application of very low temperatures (-130 °C to -190 °C) for therapeutic purposes. Extremely low temperatures are an efficient way to trigger self-healing mechanisms. 
 
 
What it is like 
Experiences with whole-body cryotherapy may vary based on the reason of your visit. During the session the person is up to the neck in a mixture of air and nitrogen vapors (-130 °C to -190 °C). Only a thin layer of the skin surface is cooled to the temperature from 5 °C to 11 °C, where thermal receptors are located. They send a signal to the brain, that the person’s life might be in danger. To protect the body from the cold, the brain gives orders to all peripheral parts of the body to constrict the muscles and tissues in order to send blood to the core of the body, internal organs are surrounded by the enriched blood, crucial life processes are accelerated. Due to slow transmission the brain receives this information after 1 to 3 minutes, when the whole-body cryotherapy is over, so the body starts scanning all organs and systems searching for the source and regulating all vital processes.
