WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF LOCALISED CRYOTHERAPY?
Localised cryotherapy is a procedure that uses extreme cold to treat a variety of conditions and ailments such as arthritis, sports injuries, inflamed areas, and surgical scars.
Localised cryotherapy involves exposing a specific area of the body to extreme cold. This can be done using devices such as those in the Cryoair range from Mecotec, which will distribute air at -32 to Celsius via a precision hose, allowing you to target a specific area. The cryoair device stimulates blood flow which has anti-inflammatory activity. The skin vessels undergo vasoconstriction, which helps flush out toxins. When the session is completed, your skin will return to normal temperature within a few minutes and you will feel relaxed, reduced pain and inflammation and improved joint mobility of the cooled area.
The health benefits associated with localised cryotherapy include the following:
Pain relief: Localised cryotherapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation in a variety of conditions, including arthritis, muscle pain, and tendonitis.
Skin health: Localised cryotherapy can help to improve skin health by stimulating collagen production and reducing inflammation. This can lead to a reduction in wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging.
Athletic recovery: Localised cryotherapy can help to speed up athletic recovery by reducing inflammation and pain. This can be especially beneficial for athletes who are prone to injuries by improving their fitness and performance levels.
Other benefits: Localised cryotherapy has also been shown to have other benefits, including improved mood, increased energy levels, better sleep, improved mobility.
Cryotherapy facials are a type of localised cryotherapy that is specifically designed to improve the appearance of the skin. During a cryotherapy facial, the skin is exposed to extreme cold for a short period of time. This helps to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and stimulate collagen production.
Cryotherapy facials have been shown to be effective in reducing wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging. They can also help to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin by rejuvenating the body, skin and mind.
This opens the technology to a different market, one that includes health and beauty clients rather than the obvious athletic and injury recovery markets.
Whole-body cryotherapy is a different type of cryotherapy – one that involves exposing the entire body to extreme cold. This is typically done in a cryotherapy chamber, which is purpose-built room that is filled with cold air for a managed period.
Whole-body cryotherapy also has several health benefits, including:
Pain relief: Whole-body cryotherapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation in a variety of conditions, including arthritis, muscle pain, and tendonitis.
Athletic recovery: Whole-body cryotherapy can help to speed up athletic recovery by reducing inflammation and pain. This can be especially beneficial for athletes who are prone to injuries.
Mood improvement: Whole-body cryotherapy has been shown to improve mood and reduce stress levels. In some cases, people report a state of euphoria and greatly enhanced mental health.
Immune system boost: Whole-body cryotherapy has been shown to boost the immune system.
Localised cryotherapy is a safe and effective way to improve a variety of health conditions. By applying extremely cold air that is targeting a specific area that need attention.
