How Cryotherapy Can Shock Your Body into Good Health
For centuries, health professionals have utilized cold therapies to assist in healing the human body. This is because when you’re exposed to cold, your body does a lot more than just shiver. Experiencing extremely cold temperatures for a short period can shock your body into reducing internal inflammation and can also increase your body productivity. If you’re looking for a quick way to reset your body and experience a host of other health benefits, cryotherapy may be the right option for you.
Cryotherapy is when you enter a cryogenic chamber filled with nitrogen to give your body a cold shock that lasts 2-3 minutes long. The purpose of chilling your body is to increase vasoconstriction and push your blood towards your core, allowing your blood to start circulating properly again. Benefits of cryotherapy include:
Higher energy levels
Better sleep patterns
Reduced chronic system inflammation
Improved cellular function

It’s only natural to wonder what to expect during cryotherapy, and the good news is the entire process is quick and simple. The cryotherapy session will only last 1-3 minutes, and in this time, you will be exposed to extremely cold temperatures; between -130 to -184 degrees Fahrenheit. You will be expected to remove your clothing and wear a robe, thermal socks, and gloves for your protection.
Staying in this temperature in any other condition would be impossible but since your body is only exposed for a few minutes, the sudden cold is actually beneficial and will shock your body and brain awake.
When you’re inside the chamber, your entire body from the neck down will be enveloped with nitrogen gas, which is where the sudden dry cold comes from. The cold will stimulate your skin sensors and activate a central nervous system response which will release endorphins and help improve your mood alongside providing other benefits.
The cold will also signal your brain to go into survival mode and make the corresponding physiological changes; enriching your blood with oxygen and helping you get rid of toxins.
The temperature in the cryogenic chamber is around -230 degrees Fahrenheit. These extremely cold temperatures are not low enough to harm your body, but just low enough for your body to reset its basic functions. Since there is no moisture or air current in the chamber, the cold temperatures are relatively easy to tolerate.
Cryotherapy is safe, but before you step into the chamber, you should make sure you follow certain precautions to keep your skin safe from frostbite. You should make sure that a staff person is standing nearby before getting in and you should also avoid wearing wet socks or any other wet material while in the chamber to prevent frostbite.
If the correct precautions are followed, you should be perfectly fine. However, if you do get frostbitten your skin will feel cold and numb and may look blue or grey. You should go for a medical checkup if you notice any irritation or discoloration on your skin after a cryotherapy session.
Cryotherapy for weight loss is becoming a very popular topic. At The Superhuman Clinic, we offer whole body cryotherapy - which is an even more effective weight loss tool. A 2018 study is showing that cryotherapy for fat loss is a proven method. In the study, the participants enjoyed an overall reduction in fat tissue, which is purported to be due to an increase in basal metabolic rate while the body is subjected to such low temperatures. As the body attempts to heat up, between 500 to 800 calories are being burned throughout the session. This makes cryo a great tool to pair with electromagnetic body sculpting for a combination of fat loss and toning. Learn more about electromagnetic body sculpting here.
Cryotherapy is used by individuals from all walks of life, including elite athletes for faster injury recovery and to reduce joint pain and muscle soreness.
If you’re suffering from chronic systemic inflammation, or you’ve noticed that you experience a lot of brain fog and general fatigue, cryotherapy may be the right solution for you. Since it’s a noninvasive process that has low risks, you can take the therapy 2-3 times a week to keep your system rebooted and awake.
Most individuals feel the results as soon as their session is over. Once you step out of the cryogenic chamber and your body returns to its normal temperature, you may experience a higher level of alertness and increased energy levels right away.
Stepping out of your comfort zone through cryotherapy is a great way to shock your body awake and start on your road to optimal health.

Cryotherapy can help you heal from any acute injury by lowering your tissue temperature and slowing down the collection of blood in your tissues. Cryotherapy is a great way to limit your bleeding and prevent bruising. As you step out of the chamber into warmer temperature, oxygenated blood flows through your body and enhances any healing your body needs to undergo. You can speed up your healing and help your body recover by undergoing a cryotherapy session in Milpitas, CA.
One of the many benefits of this form of cold therapy is you can experience anti-aging effects by coming in for regular sessions. As you age, your collagen production naturally slows down and with it, so does the elasticity of your skin. Since cryotherapy speeds up your blood oxygenation process, the extra burst of oxygen helps your body produce more collagen and circulate other important elements that are essential to your health. This can help improve the look of wrinkles and fine lines and enhance your skin firmness.
The cold temperatures also stimulate your skin and help flush out any built-up toxins allowing you to look and feel younger.
Cryotherapy is a quick and effective way to wake your body up and get your blood flowing. If you’re trying to speed up wound recovery, looking for better skin, or just looking for a boost to your overall health, cryotherapy may be the best option for you. Everybody is different, and you will first need the advice of a medical expert at the Superhuman clinic to determine if cryotherapy is the best option for you, or if there are better options available.
