What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy – There are four factors that together enable the health of our body
Cryotherapy creates a situation called thermal shock, by using cryogenic temperatures thus improving blood flow and the lymphatic system by up to 4 times more. This will then enable the discharge and self-absorption of inflamed tissues.
Cryotherapy finds its uses in various medical fields such as local anaesthesia, inflammation reduction, weight loss, muscle treatment and recovery from fatigue. Cryotherapy is an accepted medical procedure, thereby giving great benefit when actively used in the field of skincare.
How does Cryotherapy work?
When the body’s temperature is reduced, immediately the body’s blood vessels expand to revert the body back to its regular temperature. In doing so, the body is also increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients. This in turn improves blood circulation, removing unwanted substances along with it. Making it very effective in muscle fatigue recovery, reducing inflammation and helping to heal the treated area.
Additionally, to these benefits cryotherapy also reduces or blocks the speed of pain nerve transmission through vasoconstriction, thereby reducing pain similar to the effect of local anaesthesia.
