Cryotherapy uses extreme cold temperatures to promote natural recovery and well-being. Undoubtedly inspired by ancient Nordic or mountain practices of ice baths, this modern technology is widely used by high-level athletes, and is increasingly within the reach of everyone. The cryosauna uses liquid nitrogen vapor to expose the body to temperatures well below zero degrees (-110 to -170 C) for one to three minutes. This exposure prompts the body to briefly develop survival and cold-fighting reflexes, causing the release of endorphins, which can reduce pain and inflammation. Cryosauna uses natural biological mechanisms and reactions known to provide analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects on the body. Origin Wellness offers CryoRecover sessions for a specific part of the body in cases of injury, pain, or if an individual is not able to do CryoRevive otherwise known as Whole-Body Cryotherapy. Top athletes often use cryotherapy instead of ice baths to avoid dermatological problems.
The benefits of CryoRecover, as reported by research and users:
CryoTherapy lets us look at cold in a whole new way. While it can do harm, it still essential for life; many plants, trees and animals require a period of cold. The same is true for humans, and cryotherapy can help a lot with that.
As with all of our services, we recommend drinking plenty of water both before and after the session to help with the elimination of toxins. High quality water is provided at Origin Wellness.
Take off anything metallic in the area you would like to be treated including all rings, watches and other jewelry. This includes piercings.
We advise doing regular sessions in cases of strong inflammation. For example, a series of 8-12 successive sessions, 3-4 sessions per week, is recommended for inflammatory conditions and chronic pain. 2-3 sessions per month are recommended for wellness and anti-aging.
Smoking should be avoided 1 hour before and after treatment, because nicotine is a vasoconstrictor.
