If you have an injury that you are recovering from or a recurring injury or aches and pains that affect your daily life, then Kriotherapy can help your body to recover. Kriotherapy is an intense, dry cold treatment proven to beneficially stimulate blood circulation, the hormone and the immune systems. The session itself involves moving around in a cold chamber which is between minus 100ºC – 135°C, for up to 3 minutes.
The therapy can trigger cold receptors which in turn affect the nervous system by releasing endorphins which are the body’s own pain killing and anti-inflammatory agents. Also with this sudden drop in temperature blood is directed to your vital organs and constricts the amount of blood flow to the injured area. Once you leave the kriotherapy chamber, the blood capillaries open up and allow four times the normal flow of oxygenated blood back through the body to the injured site thus accelerating the recovery process. Kriotherapy can help to:
• Relieve back pain
• Aid sleep dysfunction
• Help with osteoporosis and arthritis
• Relieve symptoms of fatigue
• Regulate hormonal activity and aid menstrual pain
• Improve the symptoms of MS and ME
• Assist in the acceleration of muscle recovery from exercise
Jessica Ennis, Olympic gold medalist, World and European champion heptathlete, recently tried it out following an ankle injury. It was the perfect treatment to get her back on her feet. "It was such an exhilerating and energising experience that left me feeling rejuvenated."
