Are you looking for an answer to a pain-free lifestyle? Whole Body Cryotherapy may be a solution if you suffer from joint pain when you wake up, are an active person who sometimes pushes their body a little too far causing sore muscles, or have had surgery and need help recovering.
Just read this testimonial:
I am so grateful to find Arctic Recovery. I am no spring chicken (67). I am arthritic and have multiple back, knees and feet problems. For years, I have had gym memberships, physical therapy and water therapy. After a major surgery, a long and difficult recovery reduced me to walking with a cane. I was utterly miserable. My husband heard of Arctic Recovery, researched it and decided to try it on his shoulders. He found immediate relief and insisted I try it. I was very skeptical and wanted to bolt at the door. Thankfully, my husband was persistent and patient. He stayed with me and talked me through it. By the time I left that day I carried my cane across the parking lot to our vehicle. – Becky Warner
In addition to aches and pains, Whole Body Cryotherapy has been shown to improve mood, sleep, and even increase your metabolism.
As you can see, this proven technology isn’t just for Athletes!
Whole Body Cryotherapy exposes the body to hyper cool temperatures. The procedure tricks the body and activates its natural healing process. Developed in Japan in the 1970s, Whole Body Cryotherapy was used by professional athletes, to decrease recovery time and improve performance. Today it continues to be an athlete favorite and is available to the general public seeking recovery from musculoskeletal pain like arthritis.
Is Whole Body Cryotherapy Safe?
Yes! Whole body Cryotherapy uses cold air; however, the cooling agents never come in contact with your skin. The air is chilled using liquid nitrogen (nitrogen makes up 78% of the air we breathe). Temperature change to your body is superficial, so your internal temperature remains constant. Your head is kept outside of the low temperature area. A trained operator is always present, and the chamber itself is outfitted with several safety features to protect the client.
How many times do I have to do this before it helps?
Many clients express feeling better after just one session! To get the best benefit, we recommend completing 3 sessions in 3 or 4 days and then adhering to a maintenance session once or twice a week.
How will I feel?
Within minutes of completing your session, your skin will return to its normal temperature. You should feel relaxed, and your muscular pain should begin to subside. Many patients report feeling invigorated, and notice diminished pain symptoms immediately after their session. Follow up sessions are recommended for maximum results.
