5 Things to Expect When Going For Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is gaining ground in the fitness industry, with an increasing number of people preaching about the benefits of just one, quick treatment. However, many people simply refuse to try it out, being put off by the thought of standing in a -130°C chamber…

1.It’s not as cold as you think – while those big white clouds may look absolutely freezing, cryotherapy is a lot easier to handle when compared to the age-old ice bath. Our perception of cold is based upon immersion into cold water and, due to the fact that cryotherapy is performed using cold air, you will be able to withstand the 3 minutes in the chamber with ease.

2.It’s easy to do – cryotherapy may be a scientifically complex procedure, but for the client, it’s a very simple task. All you have to do is enter the chamber, listen to your favourite music, and stand for 3 minutes. Your operator will brief you on the treatment beforehand and will be available throughout the entire procedure if you have any questions or concerns.

3.It requires no equipment – it may look like something out of a sci-fi movie, but you don’t have to bring along a white lab coat and an oxygen mask. In fact, cryotherapy does not require you to bring any equipment or specialist clothing to the chamber at all. Just arrive in your gym gear and your operator will issue you with a mask, hat, gloves socks and insulated shoes.

4.You will feel amazing – the idea may sound excruciating, but for many people who try a cryotherapy session, they come out feeling revitalised and full of energy. It’s commonplace for people to want to undergo another session immediately due to how they feel, which you simply cannot say for other recovery methods!

5.The effects are long-lasting – a single cryotherapy session may only last 180 seconds, but the impact it has on your body and your workouts is long-lasting. You’ll feel revitalised from the treatment and ready to take on your workouts with new energy, not to mention enjoying the host of other whole-body benefits. There are not many treatments that can issue such long-lasting results in such a short amount of time!
