You can actually Improve Energy with Cryotherapy

1. Environmental Fluctuations

The body’s response to the extreme cold felt during a whole body Cryotherapy session is to constrict muscles and increase blood flow and what follows is a chain reaction of effects that ensure you Improve Sleep with Cryotherapy.

2. Norepinephrine

Norepinephrine gives you a similar sensation to a cup of coffee, it’s synonyms with alertness, goal seeking behavior, and energy levels.

Your Body secrets 3-5 times the normal amount of Norepinephrine while in the Cryochamber..

Low amounts are also associated with depression, Norepinephrine is a natural “Feel Good” Hormone

3. Brown Fat

10-20 Sessions can increase the amount of mitochondria in your body as much as 38%.

This Mitochondria Dense fat is known as “Brown Fat” and gets it’s name because Mitochondria are dense in iron, giving them a brown color.

Mitochondria is known as the Powerhouse of the Cell, and it’s aptly named. The Mitochondria dense Brown Fat is easily turned into energy in emergency situations, or temperature shifts, and may increase resting caloric burn.

This increase in Mitochondria is a natural adaption from your body to the extreme temperatures – people in colder parts of the world (especially those who work outside) have larger amounts of Brown Fat.


How can you Improve Sleep With Cryotherapy?


A Single Session is all it takes to improve your sleep with Cryotherapy. After  20 Cryotherapy Sessions your sleep will be greatly improved for the next 3 months Post-Cryotherapy, So even if you have to stop using Cryotherapy for a while (an active lifestyle is great!), you will still be able to reap these benefits of Cryotherapy. That is, for at least 3 months before you need to start doing your sessions again. Still not bad for a treatment that lasts only three minutes. Think of all of the things you could do with ninety days of good sleep. If your doing everything right;

  • Not drinking coffee after 5pm
  • Turning off all devices with screens while trying to sleep
  • Not eating after six pm
  • Giving yourself enough time

And you’re still not sleeping, you could benefit greatly from cryotherapy. Hey, it can be hard to relax and get the much needed zzz’s you deserve when you have important meetings or life events coming up,  have many stresses in your life, or if you hear your kids wonderful voices screaming in your head at night. Here’s how it works.

Your body responds to the extreme cold felt during a whole body cryotherapy session in many different ways. It constricts muscles and increases blood flow to start with. What happens next is a large chain reaction of differing effects throughout the body.

One of those effects is the release of feel good endorphins in the brain and an increase in production of norepinephrine as well. The endorphins, once in your bloodstream, will act as an analgesic which will decrease any sensations of pain you might have been experiencing while simultaneously acting as a mild sedative. Norepinephrine is a hormone and neurotransmitter that affects your sleep-wake cycle and has dramatic effects on energy, focus, mood, and sleep patterns. That means that these changes in your body caused by cryotherapy will directly affect how well you sleep!

Other effects include a boost to your immune system and a reduction of pain and inflammation. When your immunity is heightened, it is easier to combat and resist catching colds, disease and other illnesses that might keep you up at night as a side effect from the sickness itself or from the pain/problems you have to manage from the illness. Similarly, less pain and inflammation will prevent trouble you have when falling asleep and also it helps against frequently waking up/ tossing and turning throughout the night. These changes in your body indirectly affect how well you sleep!

Whether your pain is preventing you from getting enough sleep at night or if you suffer from a stressful schedule, you may very well be able to Better your Sleep with Cryotherapy

Additionally your body is able to produce more energy during the day through a more efficient and higher functioning metabolism as well as from the increasing amount of Mitochondria Dense “Brown Fat” your body stores.

Effects of 15 consecutive cryotherapy sessions on the clinical output of fibromyalgic patients.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic widespread pain disorder in which the neurogenic origin of the pain, featured by allodynia and hyperalgesia results from an imbalance in the levels of neurotransmitters and consequently of the peripheral pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators Whole body cryotherapy is a peculiar physical therapy known to relieve pain and inflammatory symptoms characteristics of rheumatic diseases through the regulation of the cytokine expression. The aim of this study was to qualitatively evaluate the effects of cryotherapy on the clinical output of fibromyalgic patients .A total of 100 fibromyalgic patients (age range 17-70 years) were observed 50 subjects were addressed to

Cryotherapy, while the second group (n = 50) did not underwent to the cryotherapic treatment. All subjects kept the prescribed pharmacological therapy during the study (analgesic and antioxidants). The referred health status pre- and post-observation was evaluated with the following scales Visual Analogue Scale. Short Form-36 Global Health Status and Fatigue Severity Scale. Fibromyalgic patients treated with cryotherapy reported a more pronounced improvement of the quality of life. in comparison with the non-cryo treated fibromyalgic subjects. as indicated by the scores of the qualitative indexes and sub-indexes that are widely recognized tools to assess the overall health status and the effect of the treatments We speculate that this improvement is due to the known direct effect of cryotherapy on the balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators having a recognized role in the modulation of pain

Effects of whole-body cryotherapy in the management of adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder.

OBJECTIVE: To compare 2 different treatment approaches, physical therapy modalities, and joint mobilization versus whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) combined with physical therapy modalities and joint mobilization, for symptoms of adhesive capsulitis (AC) of the shoulder.

DESIGN: A randomized trial.

SETTING: Hospital.

PARTICIPANTS: Patients with AC of the shoulder (N=30).

INTERVENTION: Patients were randomly assigned to 2 groups. The WBC group received physical therapy modalities, passive joint mobilization of the shoulder, and WBC, whereas the non-WBC group received only physical therapy modalities and passive joint mobilization of the shoulder.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Visual analog scale (VAS), active range of motion (ROM) of flexion, abduction, internal and external rotation of the shoulder, and the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Standardized Shoulder Assessment Form (ASES) were measured before and after the intervention.

RESULTS: A statistically significant difference between groups was found for the VAS, active ROM of flexion, abduction, internal rotation, and external rotation, and the ASES with greater improvements in the WBC group (Ps<.01). Overall, both groups showed a significant improvement in all outcome measures and ROM measures from pre to post at a level of P<.01.

CONCLUSIONS: There is significant improvement with the addition of WBC to treatment interventions in this sample of patients.

The effects of whole-body cryotherapy and melatonin supplementation on total antioxidative status and some antioxidative enzymes in multiple sclerosis patients

Oxidative stress is an important factor which contribute to the pathogenesis of lesions in multiple sclerosis (MS). Whole body cryotherapy (WBCT) is often used in treatment neurological and orthopedic diseases.

THE AIM, MATERIAL AND METHODS: The aim of this study was to determinate the level of total antioxidative status (TAS) in plasma and activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) in erythrocytes of MS patients (n = 28) before and after 10 exposures of WBCT (-120 degrees C/3 minutes/day). 16 MS patients during 10 exposures of WBCT additionally were supplemented by 10 mg of melatonin.

RESULTS: Increasing of TAS level in plasma as well as supplemented with melatonin and non-supplemented MS patients was observed after 10 exposures of WBCT Melatonin statistically significant increased activity of SOD and CAT in erythrocytes of MS patients treated with WBCT.

CONCLUSIONS: Results of our study indicate significant increase of TAS level in plasma of MS patients of WBCT treatment. This indicate that WBCT might be a therapy which suppress oxidative stress in MS patients.

Influence of the ten sessions of the whole body cryostimulation on aerobic and anaerobic capacity

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the influence of whole body cryostmulation on aerobic and anaerobic capacities.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: To test the hypothesis that whole body cryostimulation improves physical capacity, thirty subjects (fifteen males and fifteen females) undertook two ergocycle trials before and after the ten sessions of cryogenic chamber treatment. To assess baseline aerobic capacity. the progressive cycle ergometer test was applied This allowed determination of maximal oxygen uptake and ventilatory thresholds. Twenty-second Wingate test was performed to assess baseline levels of anaerobic power. After finishing the treatments in the cryogenic chamber the exercise protocol was repeated. Before the first. and after the last whole body cryostimulation. venous blood samples were drawn to determine basic blood values. including levels of erythrocytes. leukocytes and thrombocytes hemoglobin concentration and hematocrit.

RESULTS: There were no changes in aerobic capacity in both females and males. after ten sessions of 3-minute-long exposures to cryogenic temperature (-130 degrees CI Participation in the whole body cryostimulation caused an increase in maximal anaerobic power in males (from 11.1 to 11 9 W x kg(-1j P < 0.05) but not in females

CONCLUSIONS: It can be concluded that whole body cryostimulation can be beneficial at least in males. for increasing anaerobic capacity in sport disciplines involving speed and strength

Cryotherapy decreases histamine levels in the blood of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

INTRODUCTION: Conventional physiotherapy (electrotherapy. magnetic fields). kinesitherapy, and whole-body cryotherapy (plus kinesitherapy) are used to relieve pain and inflammation or to improve function in rheumatic diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different physiotherapies and cryotherapy on biochemical blood parameters of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA).

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty patients with RA and 17 patients with OA received whole-body cryotherapy at -140 to -160 degrees C for 2 to 3 min, once daily for 4 weeks. The second group of patients (24 with RA and 28 with OA) received conventional physiotherapy for 4 weeks. We measured the parameters of neutrophil activation (respiratory burst. calprotectin) and markers of cartilage metabolism (N-acetyl­beta-D-hexosaminidase (NAHase), ectonucleotide pyrophosphohydrolase (NTPPHase)) twice: before and 3 months after cryotherapy or physiotherapy.

RESULTS: We showed. for the first time, that cryotherapy significantly reduced (P < 0.001) histamine levels in the blood of patients with RA. The effect was long-lasting (for at least 3 months). The levels of blood histamine in patients with OA were not changed significantly. Cryotherapy also downregulated the respiratory burst of PMNs and NAHase activity and upregulated calprotectin levels and the activity of NTPPHase. However, these changes were not statistically significant. In contrast, there were no significant changes in histamine levels or the other biochemical parameters measured in groups of patients treated only with physiotherapy and kinesitherapy.

CONCLUSION: It may be concluded that the beneficial clinical effects of cryotherapy in RA patients are in pad due to the action on the production, release. or degradation of histamine.

Does whole body cryotherapy sessions of have influence on white blood cell count, level of IL6 and total oxidative and antioxidative status in healthy men?

The influence of extremely low temperatures on the human body and physiological reactions are not fully recognized. It has been postulated that cryotherapy could modify immunological reactions, leukocytes mobilization and levels of cytokines. The aim of this research was to estimate the influence of a ten sessions 3-min-long exposures to cryogenic temperature (-130 degrees C) on the white blood cell (WBC) count, level of IL6 and the total oxidative and antioxidative status in 15 young, clinically healthy men. Blood samples were obtained in the morning before cryotherapy, again 30 min after treatment and the next day in the morning, both during the first and tenth session. The WBC count, level of IL6 and total lipid peroxides as the total oxidative status and the total antioxidative status (TAS), were measured. After completing a total of ten whole-body therapy sessions a significant increase in WBC count, especially lymphocytes and monocytes was noted. There was an increase in level of IL6 after first and the last cryotherapy the most pronounced after tenth session. On the contrary the TAS level decreased significant after the treatment. It was concluded that repeated expositions to extremely low temperatures use in cryotherapy have mobilization effect on immunological system.

Whole-body cryotherapy in patients with inflammatory rheumatic disease. A prospective study

BACKGROUND: As yet, whole-body cryotherapy is especially used for the therapy of chronic inflammatory arthritis. An analgetic effect has been described in several studies. However, only few data exist concerning the long-term effects of this therapy.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 60 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (n • 48), and ankylosing spondylitis (n • 12) was analyzed. Patients underwent treatment with whole-body cryotherapy twice a day. The average age was 55.7 +1- 10.33. The study group consisted of 48 female and twelve male patients. The average number of therapeutic treatments with cryotherapy was 15.8 +1- 8.37, the average follow-up 63.4 +1- 63.48 days.

RESULTS: 13 patients (21.7%) discontinued treatment because of adverse effects. For patients with rheumatoid arthritis, DAS28 (Disease Activity Score) and VAS (visual analog scale) were determined. A significant reduction of both parameters was found (DAS 3.9 +1- 1.22 vs. 3.4 +1- 1.08: p < 0.01: VAS 51.4 +1- 16.62 vs. 37.9 +1- 19.13: p < 0.01). BASDAI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index) was analyzed for patients with ankylosing spondylitis, and also showed a significant reduction (4.4 +1- 1.91 vs. 3.1 +1- 1.34: p • 0.01).

CONCLUSION: Thus, whole-body cryotherapy is an effective option in the concept of treatment of inflammatory rheumatic diseases. The relief of pain allows an intensification of physiotherapy. A significant reduction of pain over a period of 2 months could be shown.

Whole-body cryotherapy as adjunct treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders.

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatism has been treated using whole-body cryotherapy (WBCT) since the 1970s. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of WBCT as an experimental, adjunctive method of treating depressive and anxiety disorders.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: A control (n=34) and a study group (n=26), both consisting of outpatients 18-65 years old with depressive and anxiety disorders (ICD-10), received standard psychopharmacotherapy. The study group was additionally treated with a series of 15 daily visits to a cryogenic chamber (2-3 min. from -160 degrees C to -110 degrees C). The Hamilton’s depression rating scale (HORS) and Hamilton’s anxiety rating scale (HARS) were used as the outcome measures.

RESULTS: After three weeks, a decrease of at least 50% from the baseline HDRS-17 scores in 34.6% of the study group and 2.9% of the control group and a decrease of at least 50% from the baseline HARS score in 46.2% of the study group and in none of the control group were noted.

CONCLUSIONS: These findings, despite such limitations as a small sample size, suggest a possible role for WBCT as a short-term adjuvant treatment for mood and anxiety disorders.

Influence of whole body cryotherapy on depressive symptoms – preliminary report.

BACKGROUND: Cryotherapy has a long tradition in somatic medicine. Yet we know very little about its impact on psyche and mood disturbances in particular. Therefore there is a real need for scientific investigations into this problem.

OBJECTIVE: The study reported here was an initial approach to whole-body cryotherapy (WBCT) as a potential treatment modality for depression and was expected to provide rough data helping to design a future project with extended methodology, larger sample groups and longer follow-up.

METHODS: Twenty-three patients aged 37-70 years gave informed consent to participate in the study. Ten WBCT procedures (160 s. -150°C) were applied within 2 weeks. Participants were recruited from depressed day hospital patients. Antidepressive medication was not ceased. Symptoms were rated at the beginning and end of this intervention using the 21-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS). Changes in scores were analyzed in the group of patients for every item separately as well as for the sum of all items for each patient.

RESULTS: Almost for each individual HDRS item, the overall score for all patients together was significantly lower after WBCT. This means that all symptoms, except for day-night mood fluctuations, were presumably positively influenced by cryotherapy. The HORS sum-score for each patient after WBCT was lower than that of the baseline and reached statistical significance in a paired samples t-test. Every patient was therefore considerably relieved after WBCT.

CONCLUSIONS: It appears that WBCT helps in alleviating depression symptoms. Should this be confirmed in the extended study we are currently implementing. WBCT may become an auxiliary treatment in depression.
