At Orange Cryo Wellness our cryosauna use nitrogen gas to lower the client’s skin surface temperature by 30-50 degrees during a three minute session. The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that stimulates the body to go into survival mode by shunting blood from the extremities to the core where the blood is enriched with oxygen, enzymes and nutrients. As the body re-warms, this nutrient rich blood is pushed back to the extremities. Enriched blood expels toxins from subcutaneous layers, initiates cell renewal process, triggers replacement of damaged cells and eliminates dead cells from peripheral tissues. Or simply put, cryotherapy is rejuvenation of the body at the cellular level.
Whole Body Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, the hormones that make us feel alert and energetic. The energized effects from each session typically last six to eight hours post-treatment. The more treatments you do in close succession, the longer the endorphin high lasts. Many clients also report improvements in their sleep quality after Cryotherapy. Muscle aches and stiff joints also feel a sense of relief.
Depending upon the condition being treated, initially you should have five to ten treatments in close succession (every other day) for the first 2 weeks. After this initial loading period, maintenance treatments should be at least once per week.
No, it isn't. Nitrogen is a non-toxic, natural gas. The air that we breathe is made up of 20% Oxygen, 78% Nitrogen and 2% of other components.
