Benefits of "Cold"
Since, June of 2019, we have administered over 4,300 Whole Body Cryotherapy sessions. If you have been a part of that number, you have heard me say that I am continuously wowed and amazed by how our clients feel afterwards! But the question always comes up..."Why Whole Body Cryotherapy versus just a cold shower, a cold plunge, or even an ice bath?" The benefits of cold are NOT created equal. There are similarities, but depending upon your personal goal, the differences are important to note.
Any exposure to cold temperatures challenges our body’s natural ability to control its internal temperature. The exposure can range from normal to extreme. All ranges of cold exposure, when safely administered, can be powerful for our health but the outcome can be VERY different. The resulting health benefits are determined based upon your body’s perceived level of danger.
