Do you suffer from Insomnia? Here's how Whole Body Cryotherapy can help.
One of the best feelings in the world is waking up from a wonderfully restful night of sleep —slowly opening your eyes, feeling the cool sheets and knowing that you, rested human being that you are, will have a productive and happy day.
Sadly, for most of us (1 in 3) that is a dream (no pun intended), we get too little sleep and what we do get is often not top quality. It’s not just that fuzzy, grumpy feeling and the downing of copious amounts of caffeine that’s the problem, lack of sleep has real consequences. According to the NHS, “Regular poor sleep puts you at risk of serious medical conditions, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes — and it shortens your life expectancy.” There’s also evidence of physiological effects: an increased risk of dementia, including Alzheimer's, and mood disorders like depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety.
Most of us want to sleep more, but we just don’t, either due to stress, lifestyle, Netflix, or even the fact that your body gets conditioned not to sleep as much as it should.
Now imagine you could change that — but not with pills and medication (and no, wine doesn’t help either, it actually disturbs your sleep, even if it does make you feel sleepy).
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) has been shown to improve sleep and lessen fatigue. Just like exercise has a positive impact on sleep patterns by releasing endorphins, so too does cryotherapy, in fact many of our clients gleefully tell us how much better they sleep since starting WBC.
The extreme cold of our CryoCabin™ sends a message to the brain telling the body to conserve all the heat in the core to protect the vital organs such as the heart. When you leave the chamber, the blood rushes back to the extremities infusing you with oxygen-rich blood and leaving you feeling refreshed. The good news is that the energy expended during the day translates into a restful sleep at night.
Why WBC helps promote a more restful sleep: • Cryotherapy gives more energy during the day so you’re more active, thus more tired at night • Since WBC takes helps to control pain and even prevent it, you are able to exercise more • Both WBC and exercise release endorphins — which not only make you feel good, but also help with sleep • Cryo just makes you feel good and when you feel good, you sleep better
