During a whole body cryotherapy session, our state-of-the-art cryosauna fills with nitrogen vapor and a dry chill that drops the ambient temperature to a range of -160ºF to -240ºF. 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.
