Whole body cryotherapy, or the use of extreme cold temperatures to give the powerful illusion of the body freezing, provides muscle recovery and rejuvenation benefits to help you get back to your workout or busy lifestyle in record time. Our professionals at Elgin Cryo will educate you on the best practices and procedures to ensure a safe and successful whole body cryotherapy experience. During your first session with us, we will go over the rules and overall experience so that you better understand what cryotherapy is doing for you and how long the effects will last. Your first session will be a maximum of two minutes in the cryochamber to adjust you to the process of whole body cryotherapy.
Whole body cryotherapy is a a three step process. We start your first treatment at two minutes at -180F to -240F to help you get used to the cryochamber before setting you up for our max treatment at three minutes. You begin by undressing and stepping into the cryochamber in socks and gloves, once inside we leave the top completely open to allow the nitrogen to roll up and out. The door is held shut with a magnetic latch so nothing is locked and a hydrolic platform allows you to adjust for your height. During the session our Elgin Cryo professionals adjust the temperatures to help you achieve optimal results with superior blood flow and will monitor your session in case you need anything. As the temperature drops in your body the blood vessels in your skin's surface and muscle tissue start to constrict, forcing blood away from the tissues and head to your core. While the blood is in your core it will act as a filtration system to clear your blood of toxins and inflammation. Upon leaving the chamber you will feel an instance rush of endorphins and energy as your blood, rich with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes works to re-heat your skin and muscles. In the next 48 hours of recovery your body will work to restore itself and return it to a former or better state. Any pain or inflammation will be reduced and your recovery times for workouts will be shorter.
Whether you're an athlete, busy soccer mom, or elderly our whole body cryotherapy sessions have something to benefit what ails you. After one session you'll feel restored, revitalized, and recovered within the first 48 hours. The benefits of whole body cryotherapy include:
