Cryotherapy is “cold therapy” for your skin and body! Whole-body cryotherapy exposes your entire body to subzero temperatures for a short period of time. It is a tolerable dry cold. The dry cold penetrates the is only felt on your skin and not beneath it. When your skin turns roughly 20 degrees colder than your normal body temperature of 98 degrees it alerts your brain (sympathetic) which triggering a fight or flight response. The brain senses the extreme cold, which causes blood to flow to the user’s torso to insulate and protect vital organs. Upon completion, oxygenated blood rushes to body organs which aid the healing process. This vast circulation of blood and oxygen wipes out inflammation and lactic acid build up. Cryotherapy is scientifically proven to be effective and more comfortable than jumping into an ice bath! It is even more comfortable than a cold shower.
It started with chambers filled with nitrogen where you needed to have your head above the chamber so you would not inhale the nitrogen circulating around the chamber (problem is you still would inhale trace amounts and you could experience dizziness and sickness) Then they created the breathable technology where nitrogen is still used to cool the air that would be redirected into the chamber without exposing nitrogen to your body or more important, respiratory inhalation. This allows the treatment to become safe (This is one of our technologies at Cryo Maryland and Touch Free Wellness).
Finally, the Electric Full Body Cryotherapy Chamber has arrived, and it is run on electricity (obviously), no expensive nitrogen so it allows for safe and very low-cost treatments! We have two Cryotherapy chambers here: Electric and Nitrogen. The New Electric Chamber (coming Dec 15th, 2022) is only for 6-8 month memberships. We only allow 250 members at a time and with this we will max out the daily/weekly member sessions. It is very cost effective to run this chamber so your price per session is considerably less that the price to use our original nitrogen chamber. Both chambers are great. Both do the same exact thing in recovery. The nitrogen chamber is for single appointments and packages of 5 & 10 sessions. Electric chamber technology offers great rates for one person or family memberships.
