Cryotherapy vs. Ice Baths

Ice bath


Introducing a Revolutionary Multi-purpose Healing & Regeneration Technique

One-Stop Health & Beauty Solution

Cryotherapy is an extremely versatile therapy with a range of applications in health and beauty. It is one of the most exciting technologies to be developed in recent times. One of the most important uses of Cryotherapy is that it drastically reduces the recovery and healing time after an injury or exercise. It also has great potential in the beauty world as it can completely change the current techniques used to solve a variety of problems.

The Concept

Cryotherapy enhances recovery time from sports injuries by up to 5 times as compared to traditional healing methods. It also offers faster recuperation after intense workout sessions. A whole-body treatment lasts for just 3 minutes. The ultimate objective of the treatment is to elicit the ideal physiological response of the body for faster healing from injury and recovery from fatigue.

Cryotherapy vs Ice-Bath

The concept of Cryotherapy may seem very similar to your regular ice bath, but they are very different. Even though the core concept in both is concerned with exposing the body to very low temperatures, the techniques differ. As compared to an ice bath, a Cryotherapy session is highly comfortable and offers many additional advantages while at the same time eliminating the major risk factors associated with an ice bath.

Some of the major differences between Cryotherapy and Ice-Bath are as follows:

* Cryotherapy uses extremely cold air in the range of -220°F to -280°F whereas the temperature of water in an ice-bath varies from 45°F to 60°F.

* As a result of the treatment, the skin temperature varies from 32°F to 35°F in Cryotherapy and 45°F to 60°F in the traditional method.

* A Cryotherapy session gets completed in a short duration of 2 to 3 minutes while an Ice-bath may take as long as 15 to 20 minutes.

* Some of the immediate benefits of Cryotherapy include faster recovery, increased haemoglobin levels, improved blood circulation, stronger immune system, mood improvement, etc.

* Along with an overall improvement in many health parameters, Cryotherapy is a great beauty aid as it improves the skin health and initiates collagen production.

* There is also no risk of hypothermia in Cryotherapy that is a risk associated with ice-baths. Ice-baths can induce irregular heartbeat which can cause a heart attack or other heart complications.

* A rest period of 12 to 24 hours is required after an ice-bath, while you can return to your regular activities immediately after Cryotherapy.
