Professional Athletes and Celebrities Using Cryotherapy


What is the science behind the cryosauna chamber that professional athletes are using for recovery?


Cryotherapy has become one of the latest trends with celebrities and athletes. It proposes many benefits which many claim to be true. It is a more comfortable, quicker, and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. There has been much research behind the subject explaining the science behind cryotherapy. What it comes down to is that cryotherapy helps relieve pain from muscle aches and stiff joints. It can even improve sleep quality. This treatment uses cold liquid nitrogen to soothe the user’s muscles. It also works to give them a renewed sense of energy.

Since cryotherapy is for the whole body, the user stands exposed in a chamber. The cold envelops the user for three minutes, with the temperature slowly dropping. Cryo chambers reach temperatures as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit. The body prevents hypothermia by regulating blood flow to the core. At the core, there are the most nutrients as well as vital organs. When the user steps out of the chamber and out of the cold, the blood picks up these nutrients. The body then distributes the nutrients from the core to the rest of the body. The cold also helps decrease inflammation and pain in joints and muscles. Since the body inside the chamber releases endorphins, this creates an increase in energy. Surely, this is useful to those with an active lifestyle.

Who is using this treatment, and why?

Cryotherapy for athletes is proven to work. Athletes are prone to soreness and injuries, so whole body cryotherapy can help them heal. Floyd Mayweather used cryotherapy in 2015 prior to his fight with Manny Pacquiao. He would use whole body cryotherapy sessions following his training. Cryotherapy benefits athletes, such as Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Steph Curry. These athletes among many others have used cryotherapy following their training. Usain Bolt, the fastest short-distance runner alive, loves this treatment as well. All use the treatment to feel better and recover faster.

Aside from famous athletes and teams, other celebrities swear by this treatment. Tony Robbins, an inspirational speaker, not only has bought sessions of cryotherapy but also owns a cryotherapy chamber in his home. Due to this, he can use the chamber for many sessions per day. He refers to cryotherapy as one of the best modern-day technologies. Robbins claims cryotherapy is essential to his recovery and daily routine. Others like him have bought and installed chambers in their homes for private use. This is so that they do not have to go to a separate location each time they want a freezing session.

Where is cryotherapy available?

Cryotherapy machine stations have popped up in many locations, and even outside the US. In fact, many Europeans use this therapy for its anti-aging benefits. The cold helps to tighten the skin and increase collagen production. One of the most famous distributors on the market is based in Poland. This distributor sells to Europeans and even outside the continent. Wherever you live, there is likely to be a distributor or cryotherapy chamber. Finding one easy, and using this treatment can help you heal like some of the most famous athletes do.
