WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
CRYOTHERAPY IN SPORTS & FITNESS
BIOLOGY IN SPORT
Cryotherapy is the well-kept secret of the World’s best athletes including MATEJ TOTH, MBAPPE, CRISTIANO RONALDO, FLOYD MAYWEATHER and LEBRON JAMES. In the playing field, ring or pitch, it’s the smallest details that make a winner.
HOW CRYOTHERAPY IN SPORT WORKS
AFTER ENTERING THE CRYO-CHAMBER, A COLD FLOW OF NITROGEN AND AIR ACTIVATES THERMORECEPTORS IN THE SKIN. THESE START TO SEND ELECTRICAL IMPULSES TO THE BRAIN. THE CNS IDENTIFIES A STATE OF THREAT. THIS ACTIVATES A COMPLEX ADAPTIVE REACTION FOCUSED ON DEFENDING THE BODY TO SURVIVE IN AN EXTEMELY COLD ENVIRONMENT.
THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM SENDS SIGNALS TO THE MUSCLES AND VASCULAR SYSTEM, INVOKING CONTRACTION OF MUSCLES AND NARROWING OF THE BLOOD VESSELS. THIS ACCELERATES THE FLOW OF BLOOD, NUTRITION AND OTHER RESOURCES FROM PERIPHERAL BODY PARTS TO THE BODY CORE.
3. DETOXIFICATION & BLOOD ENRICHMENT
IN ORDER TO SWIFTLY SUPPLY ENOUGH NUTRIONAL SUBSTANCES TO CORE ORGANS, THE BODY STARTS HYPERPRODUCTION TO ENRICH BLOOD WITH ERYTHROCYTES, OXYGEN, COLLAGEN AND OTHER ESSENTIAL SUBSTANCES. METABOLITES AND TOXINS ARE QUICKLY DEGRADED AND ELIMINATED.
AFTER LEAVING THE CRYO-CHAMBER, THERMORECEPTORS RECOGNISE THE RETURN TO NORMAL ENVIRONMENT, WHICH TRIGGERS VASODILATATION AND THE RETURN OF ENRICHED BLOOD TO PERIPHERAL BODY PARTS. NUTRITIONAL SUBSTANCES TRANSFERRED BY BLOOD ARE ABSORBED BY PERIPHERAL SYSTEMS - MUSCLES, TISSUES, JOINTS AND SKIN.
WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
IN SPORTS & FITNESS
QUICK AND LASTING HELP FOR SPORTS INJURIES. Health and full efficiency is the key to every athlete’s success. Today’s professionals and recreational sports can represent uncommon to extreme loads to human body. Small or more serious injuries can rarely be avoided. In case of more serious injuries of the muscle-skeletal system, as well as micro-trauma at higher load, local application of nitrogen stream as cold as -130°C will eliminate pain and help with faster healing of tissues.
In addition, nitrogen will help extending the range of motion and allow further recovery of the athlete, reducing the pain also helps the patient to stay motivated in the recovery process as well as continue to exercise, which otherwise wouldn’t be possible due to pain.
CRYOTHERAPY FOR SPORTS AND FITNESS
Whole body cryotherapy is currently the most efficient and most comprehensive method of recovery and stimulation of the locomotive apparatus. Thanks to its distinctive recovery effect it is used by athletes, gyms and sports clubs around the World. Professional sports clubs around the globe have implemented cryo-chambers and cryotherapy in the training processes.
CRYOTHERAPY PROCEDURE IN
SPORTS AND FITNESS
Within a 2-3 minute long procedure in a cryo-chamber, the human body is rapidly exposed to extremely low temperatures and about -130°C to support the effect of cryotherapy, we recommend additional 15-20 minute of Kenesio-therapy on a stationary bicycle, or similar aerobic exercises after procedure.
In addition to the already described stimulation and recovery effect on muscles and the whole locomotive apparatus, increased production of beta-endorphins including the feeling of happiness and boost energy. This feeling of motivation and positive encouragement assists with higher resistance to load. Its analgesic effect will persist 3-5 hours after procedure.
