Cryotherapy is the ultra-cold temperatures in whole-body treatment that can cause physiological hormonal responses. This includes the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins. This can have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders.
Cryotherapy for the whole body consists of a patient standing in a special tank; called a Cryosauna, which exposes the body to very low (sub-zero) temperatures for a duration of time (between 90 sec - 3 min). Liquid nitrogen in the tank causes a cool, but dry mist to fill the tank and lower the body's skin temperature to around 10 degrees celsius.
How will I feel after a Whole Body Cryotherapy session? When the session is complete, your skin will return to its normal temperature within minutes. Immediately after you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but within minutes you will likely feel relaxed and muscular pain generally begins to subside immediately.
