CRYOTHERAPY


Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a method of cold therapy involving one – three minutes of body exposure to temperatures near -190°F. While this method was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatic arthritis, various studies conducted over the last two decades and user’s testimonials have solidified cryotherapy as a treatment for reducing symptoms of pain and inflammation associated with a number of chronic and passive conditions. Cryotherapy also significantly improves recovery time for athletes, treats various skin conditions and aids in weight loss.

WHAT IS WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPHY?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the body's exposure to extreme cold, triggering a systemic anti-inflammatory response. This modality was first utilized in Japan to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted in Europe over the last two decades have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries. The treatments have been used to accelerate the production of collagen, to improve skin elasticity and texture, to reverse skin aging, and to reduce the appearance of cellulite. WBC boosts the body’s metabolic rate, which accelerates weight loss outcomes. Professional athletes have discovered WBC as a powerful treatment to decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance.

HOW DOES CRYOTHERAPY WORK?
Exposure to extremely cold temperatures stimulates thermoreceptors in the skin, activating a central nervous system (CNS) response. This results in your brain and CNS drawing blood from the periphery to the body’s core, circulating the blood through its vital organs. While circulating through the vital organs in the body’s core, the blood is enriched with red blood cells, oxygen and other essential nutrients and enzymes, while toxins and metabolic waste are broken down and removed. Once the cryotherapy session is complete, the enriched blood flows back to the body’s periphery where it promotes reduced inflammation, healing and recovery and boosts energy levels, mood and metabolic rates.

COMPRESION THERAPY


NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—our systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. Our goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training, and we feel NormaTec systems are the best way to accomplish that. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of our systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.

Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.
