Why celebrities are obsessed with whole-body cryotherapy?

Whole body cryotherapy for injury treatment

Have you ever heard of whole-body cryotherapy? Do you know why its trending among celebrities and sports personalities, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Jennifer Aniston, Floyd Mayweather and Demi Moore? What exactly pulls them towards cold treatment?

In this post, we are going to breakdown a few good reasons that will help you understand why celebrities are obsessed with cryotherapy. We will take a look at some of the most notable benefits of the therapy.  

Decreased inflammation

People commonly use ice packs to the inflamed areas of their body. This is an old yet effective technique. Cryotherapy is its modern version, in which inflammation is reduced to a certain level with the help of low temperatures. The therapy can instantly aid in soft-tissue-related injuries and heal damaged tissues.

Fast exercise recovery

Probably the biggest reason why celebrities love cryotherapy is its fast recovery rate. When your body is exposed to extreme cold after a physical workout, it recovers at a faster rate. Also, cold is proven to numb muscle pain, which is another reason why cryotherapy is a go-to therapy for workout enthusiasts. Keep in mind that one session alone likely won’t show any significance.

Reduced arthritic pain

Cryotherapy isn’t just for injury treatment, it can also help people with arthritis. According to one study, evidence was found that prove whole-body cryotherapy is effective against joint pain. The therapy generates short-term effects, making it an essential part of rehabilitation programs.

Enhanced immunity

This goes hand-in-hand with metabolism, which you can boost with the help of whole-body cryotherapy. The therapy sends your body into overdrive and helps it stay warm. As a result, it triggers the anti-inflammatory process and boosts your immune system. Furthermore, some experts believe that cryotherapy can increase your white blood cell count and interleukin-6, which is a protein responsible for pro and anti-inflammatory effects.

Improved skin quality  

Cryotherapy is great against chronic inflammatory skin diseases like atopic dermatitis. It can improve the antioxidant levels in your blood, which encourages the rejuvenation of your skin cells. This makes sense when it comes to fighting acne and having clear, young and fresh skin.

Weight loss

Yup you heard that correct, weight loss! Several celebrities rave about how effective the cold treatment can be to burn anywhere from 500 to 800 calories. And you know what? All it takes is 3-minutes. This is because of the sudden exposure to extreme cold, which makes your body stabilise its core temperature. Consequently, calories get burnt during the entire stabilisation phenomenon.

Better mood

What if I tell you that cryotherapy can improve your mood? Sounds interesting; doesn’t it? When you are inside a cryotherapy chamber, you experience freezing temperatures that can cause physiological responses. These responses include releasing endorphins that are proven to improve mood. This is especially beneficial for individuals suffering from anxiety, stress or depression.

You see, there are many reasons why celebrities love whole-body cryotherapy. Hopefully, you have a clear understanding of them now.
