There’s a reason sports teams and elite athletes are embracing whole body cryotherapy as it helps with recovery post exercise, including repairing injuries and increasing performance.
Whole body cryotherapy acts at a muscular and cardiovascular level, therefore, when applied before intense exercise it increases physical performance and resistance. Blood flow increases, natural enzymes, nutrients and hormones are released enabling the athlete to achieve greater power, higher speed, and greater resistance to fatigue.
Recovery after exercise
As whole body cryotherapy helps to reduce inflammation, pain is reduced and the body is better able to heal itself and promote muscle recovery. Unlike with ice baths you can also resume exercise immediately after a cryotherapy session.
Besides preventing injuries, WBC also aids in recovery and significantly reduces downtime by helping to reduce inflammation. Likewise, it reduces pain and increases the ability of the muscle to regenerate.
Thanks to the release of endorphins and neuropeptides from a WBC treatment, you’ll experience a feeling of contentment and calm. Athletes will tell you how important state of mind is for training and motivation.
