Chilling for Health: How Cold Can Benefit Your Body and Mind

Have you ever plunged into an ice-cold pool or taken an invigorating dip in the ocean? If so, you must be aware of the benefits of cold therapy. Cryotherapy takes the concept of cold treatment to the next level with the use of cryo saunas and other cryo devices. Cryo saunas, large chambers that use liquid nitrogen to lower the temperature inside to as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit /-130 Celcius, have become increasingly popular in recent years. Other cryo devices, such as cryo tanks and cryo cuffs, offer localized cryotherapy to specific areas of the body. But what are the benefits of exposing your body to such extreme cold? According to some studies, exposure to cold temperatures may be linked with healthy aging, longevity and improved health. In this article, we will delve into the world of cryo saunas and other cryo machines as we explore the many benefits they offer. Reducing inflammation, boosting athletic performance or eliminating beauty imperfections, these devices have a wide range of applications that are sure to pique your interest.  So let’s take a closer look and see how cryo therapy can benefit your health and wellness journey.

The Benefits of Cold Therapy

Did you know that your body temperature has been decreasing by 0.05°F / 0.03°C per decade since the Industrial Revolution? It’s a fascinating phenomenon that could be linked to the increase in human longevity over the past 160 years. It seems that lowering our body temperature, like what happens during cryotherapy, could be a simple yet effective way to improve your health.  For instance, the Aging Study held by the University of Cologne’s research team found that exposure to cold temperatures may trigger a process that breaks down protein clumps associated with aging. This process, called proteasome activation, clears cells of faulty proteins and has been shown to reduce impairments related to aging in both non-vertebrate and human cells used for the study.  Age-related neurological disorders such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Huntingtons, and ALS, are all associated with protein aggregation as well. As we age, we become more susceptible to neuro-degenerative diseases caused by the buildup of certain proteins. Amazingly, Professor David Vilchez and his team have discovered that protein is activated in human cells exposed to moderate cold, potentially offering a way to prevent multiple diseases at once.

The role of cryotherapy in anti-aging

Cryo saunas use the principles of cold therapy to provide similar benefits as those found in the study discussed earlier. In a cryo sauna, the body is exposed to temperatures ranging from -166°F to -220°F / -110°C to -140°C for a short period of time, typically no more than three minutes. This exposure to cold triggers the body’s natural healing processes, including increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and the release of endorphins. But cryo saunas aren’t the only option for cold therapy. There are also local cryo devices that use the same principles but are applied to specific areas of the body, like knees or shoulders. Think of it like an ice pack, but with amplified and targeted benefits, delivering a targeted blast of cold to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain. By chilling the body to extreme temperatures, cryotherapy can trigger a range of physiological responses that offer numerous benefits. This includes reducing pain, speeding up muscle recovery, or boosting athletic performance, and fortifying the immune system. Cryotherapy is a versatile tool in the wellness arsenal.  The benefits aren’t just physical. Studies have shown that cryotherapy can also have a positive impact on mental health by alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression. It’s no wonder cryotherapy is becoming an increasingly popular treatment option for athletes, wellness enthusiasts, and anyone seeking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, with all the advantages of cryotherapy. 

How Cryo Saunas Work

Cryotherapy saunas incorporate cutting-edge technology to harness the therapeutic effects of cold therapy. The technology involves the use of liquid nitrogen or refrigerated cold air to rapidly lower the temperature inside the chamber, resulting in a rapid drop in the body’s surface temperature. This rapid decrease in temperature triggers the body’s natural healing responses, which can lead to a variety of physiological benefits. Users stand inside the chamber, which typically reaches temperatures as low as -140°C / -220°F for a period of no more than three minutes. During this time, the body responds to the cold by constricting blood vessels and reducing blood flow to the extremities. This response triggers the body to release endorphins and other organic recovery processes, leading to a variety of potential therapeutic effects. Localized cryotherapy delivers targeted cold to specific parts of the body. Whether you’re looking to soothe sore muscles, speed up injury recovery, or just want to feel refreshed and rejuvenated, a local cryo device might be just the ticket.

Cryo therapy benefits for health

Cryo saunas and local cryo machines are among the most effective and safe ways to rejuvenate body and mind. These advanced technology chambers use the power of cold therapy to deliver a host of therapeutic benefits. Here are just a few reasons why people want to try a cryo therapy or use it consistently:

  • Enhanced muscle recovery and reduced inflammation
  • Improved circulation and oxygenation of tissues
  • Increased metabolism and weight loss
  • Enhanced immune system function
  • Reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Maximized brain performance
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Enhanced athletic performance
  • Enhanced skin elasticity and firmness
  • Promotion of skin regeneration

Cryotherapy devices have been found to produce a wide range of healing benefits, from improving eczema to enhancing cognitive health. It’s hard to imagine anyone not achieving great results from cryotherapy 

Potential risks and how to avoid them

While cryo saunas offer a refreshing chill, it’s important to remember that too much of a good thing can sometimes be a bad thing. Frostbite, a condition where skin and other tissues freeze due to prolonged exposure to extreme cold, is a potential risk of cryo sauna use. However, this risk can easily be avoided. Just be sure to follow the recommended session length and keep vulnerable skin areas properly covered. Other potential risk is the possibility of feeling a bit lightheaded due to a drop in blood pressure caused by the cold temperatures. But don’t worry, the solution is simple: take your time getting out of the sauna. Just like with any other physical activity, listen to your body and take things slow.
