Six Myths About Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a popular treatment that involves exposing your body to extremely low temperatures, typically in a cryotherapy chamber. While some people swear by its benefits, others remain skeptical. In this blog post, we aim to dispel the top 6 myths about cryotherapy and give you an honest and unbiased answer to any questions you may have.

Cryotherapy – body cooling for therapeutic purposes

Myth #1: You only need to do it once.

While cryotherapy can have incredible results the first time you try it, it might take more than one session to truly start seeing or feeling a difference. Not everyone will experience the same results. Some people may not notice any change right away while other people can instantly tell a difference. It’s important to go into a cryotherapy session with an open mind and to give any new service, especially cryotherapy, an honest and fair try.

Myth #2: Cryotherapy is too expensive.

Cryotherapy can be much less expensive than you think. Due to most people wanting and needing more than one session, we offer affordable options to allow people to get the recovery they need, for an amazingly low price.

Myth #3: Being that cold can’t possibly be good for you.

There’s no doubt that cryotherapy chambers are cold. Our machine will reach temperatures as low as -249°F. However, the cold air in cryotherapy chambers is a dry cold. That means it doesn’t feel like that same bone-chilling cold feeling you get standing outside for too long on a cold winter day. Cryotherapy is cold for a reason. The human body is capable of some amazing things, and keeping your body functioning at extremely low temperatures is one of them.

Myth #4: Cryotherapy is only supposed to be done after a workout.

People use cryotherapy before or after a workout, game, or event. Doing cryotherapy before an event helps give them energy and prepares their bodies mentally and physically to take on whatever task lies ahead of them. Doing cryotherapy after an event helps calm some people down and allows them to sleep better. It’s important to discover what works for you, and if you still aren’t sure, feel free to switch it up!

Myth #5: It’s only for athletes, celebrities, or injured people.

Professional athletes, celebrities, and injured customers love and highly endorse cryotherapy, but they’re not the only ones. Cryotherapy was made popular recently because of the many professional sports teams and famous celebrities that utilize cryotherapy. We like to expand our market and cater our services to every single type of person. It doesn’t matter what your profession, athletic skill, social status, etc. is. We are here to show that cryotherapy is for anyone. Some clients have found that cryotherapy helps lessen the effects of chronic pain, acute pain, or that it just helps them recover, perform, look, and feel better.

Myth #6: It’s just a trend.

Cryotherapy has been around since 1978 and has since been researched and improved upon dramatically over the years. People have been subjecting themselves to extreme cold conditions with ice baths and cold-water submersions for generations. Cryotherapy is just a faster and more efficient method of cold therapy.

In conclusion, cryotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to athletic performance. Don’t let myths and misconceptions keep you from trying this incredible therapy. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to a cryotherapy professional for an honest and unbiased answer.
