People have long been searching for the fountain of youth — but new technology (whole body cryotherapy) has shown that it works best when it’s frozen. The therapeutic benefits of even an ice pack are well-known, with the ability to absorb heat, decrease injury pain and muscle soreness, and help to aid in muscle repair.
Imagine, then, the benefits that can be found with whole body cryotherapy, which means cold cure. This treatment dates back to the 1600s, but started to gain popularity in the 1970s. Now, cryotherapy is used by a variety of individuals to heal and rejuvenate the body.
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
An editor for Harper’s Bazaar called cryotherapy “the frozen answer to beauty perfection,” noting that just a three-minute treatment left her feeling more energetic and her skin glowing. You can now get the same benefits with whole body cryotherapy in Colorado Springs.
Whole body cryotherapy is viewed as a viable replacement and alternative for anyone seeking the benefits of an ice bath, ice pack, or cold water immersion.
Many of competitors can easily usher you into a traditional cryochamber, very few give you the option to heat the body pre and post treatment.
What are the Benefits of Cryotherapy?
Outside of the medical setting, individuals can find physical and mental benefits from brief, controlled exposure to extreme cold. Cryotherapy users around the world have found tremendous benefits from the treatment.

- Reduction of cellulite
- Pain management
- Lower levels of anxiety or stress
- Decrease in jet lag symptoms
- Stronger immune system
- Higher levels of collagen, which decrease wrinkles and smooth out the skin
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
Cryotherapy rejuvenates the body’s healing abilities by forcing blood away from the extremities using extreme cold temperatures for a very short time. The blood rushes to the internal organs where the cardiovascular system enriches it with oxygen, endorphins and several other healing enzymes. When the blood returns to the peripheral tissues, it targets inflammation and reduces pain.
