Cryotherapy Benefits: Enhance Weight Loss
During each treatment, the body is exposed to specifically controlled temperatures which can go as low as -85°C to -90°C. It is possible to burn as many as 800 calories and increase metabolic rate with each Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment in our Ice Chamber.
When exposed to extreme temperatures, our body experiences something called thermogenesis, which is a metabolic response that automatically warms the body by creating more mitochondria, which is often referred to as the powerhouse of cells.
Our body tissue responds and is converted into metabolically active tissue, which with the increased levels, helps the body to burn unwanted fat.

Cryotherapy Benefits: Manage Pain
Whole Body Cryotherapy is used by clients for long-term pain management, post-injury, and surgical recovery, with significant rehabilitative results. It may enhance and maintain general wellness and the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties can provide pain relief for long-term medical conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatism, and fibromyalgia.
Cryotherapy Benefits for the Skin: Anti Aging & Skin Rejuvenation
In a whole body cryotherapy chamber, your skin is exposed to the cold temperature and this improves blood supply to the area. Count anti-aging to the list of cryotherapy skin benefits, the extra blood supply activates collagen production thus brightening and toning the skin. Say goodbye to puffy, inflamed skin!
Cryotherapy can be effective in treating skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and acne as well as skin lesions and blemishes such as age spots and pigmentation. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin

Strengthen the Immune System
Research suggests that Cryotherapy can increase the number of white blood cells, which are the cells that fight infection. This means that your body is able to identify and react more quickly to, and attack foreign organisms, which may result in illness.
Exposure to such extremely cold temperatures, for short periods of time, raises the body’s metabolic rate as it works to heat back up again. Whole Body Cryotherapy results in an elevated metabolism 24/7.
As well as strengthening the immune system, Cryotherapy triggers additional immune responses including a decrease in inflammation as it boosts the number of anti-inflammatory cytokines and reduces pro-inflammatory cytokines. This enables the body to develop a healthy immune cell population and the ability to heal damaged muscles more quickly.

Enhance the Brain
The extreme temperatures experienced during Whole Body Cryotherapy trigger physiological hormonal responses, which include the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins. These are known to have a positive effect on those who experience mood disorders like anxiety, stress, and depression.
Cryotherapy Stages of Healing
Exposure to the extreme cold in the cryochamber creates homeostasis and triggers several self-regulatory mechanisms within your body – neurological, endocrine (glands), and immune functions. Brief thermal shock has been proven to increase the body’s blood flow to the muscles, providing a unique support mechanism to tissue damage and wound healing, especially following injury.
Here’s the science behind the healing process and cryotherapy stages of healing
What to expect after whole body cryotherapy
After stepping out of the full body cryotherapy chamber, the warm, nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood immediately rushes back to the skeletal muscles and skin to reduce inflammation.
Perceiving the ‘threat’ as over, your body simultaneously decreases cortisol levels and releases endorphins – the ‘feel good’ hormones – into the blood, making you instantly feel re-energised and revitalised.
Exposure to such extremely cold temperatures, for short periods of time, raises your heart rate and metabolic rate as it works harder to heat back up again, aiding in breaking down fat and maintaining blood sugar levels. This not only boosts your body’s metabolism – burning calories for hours after you’ve left the cryochamber – but the additional exertion on your body helps you to achieve a good night’s sleep.
The analgesic effect of cryotherapy whole body Kent can provide instant pain relief, easing muscle tension and soreness (which in turn can also improve your sleep with the absence of these discomforts).
During Whole Body Cryotherapy
When you initially enter the cryotherapy chamber your nervous system increases norepinephrine (noradrenaline) levels which put your body into a ‘fight or flight’ mode as it adjusts to changes in the external environment, triggering several responses.
Your body directs blood flow to your vital organs to protect them and prevent you from entering a state of hypothermia. Red blood cells carry oxygen to ‘damaged’ or inflamed areas. The extreme cold helps to numb the body, minimising the ‘pain’ messages that are sent back to the brain.
Full body cryotherapy can increase the number of white blood cells which are an important part of your immune system, meaning your body is able to identify and react more quickly to foreign organisms which could cause illness. Cryotherapy triggers additional immune responses including a decrease in inflammation as it boosts the number of anti-inflammatory cytokines (signaling molecules that mediate and regulate immunity & inflammation). This enables the body to develop a healthy immune cell population, the ability to heal damaged muscles and tissue more quickly, and wound healing.
