Whole-body cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. During a session, the cryosauna fills with nitrogen vapor and a dry chill that drops the ambient temperature to a range of -130ºF to -184ºF. The cool temperature affects your skin’s surface, triggering your thermoreceptors to send signals to the brain making you ‘think’ you are freezing. This sends your body into a defensive mode by quickly transporting the body’s blood, nutrients, and resources to the organs in the core. During this process the body starts oxygenating your blood, flushing it of toxins and lactic acid. Immediately after exiting the cryosauna, your body starts returning to its normal state by increasing blood flow of your newly oxygenated blood back out to your limbs. Your body responds to this increase in blood flow by dilating the blood vessels to distribute heat. The body starts absorbing the blood, which is now enriched with erythrocytes, oxygen, collagen, and other essential nutrients.
NormaTec Compression Therapy
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. These systems use NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance. By using compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery, NormaTec helps you train harder and recover faster.
Unlike the whole-body cryotherapy which is more systemic, our localized cryotherapy devices deliver a targeted cooling to specific areas of the body undergoing application. This is a wonderful option for those recovering from surgery or injury. This is also a great alternative for those who do not wish to stand in the cryosauna chamber.
