Cryotherapy is the therapeutic use of cold. If you’ve ever used an ice-pack, you’ve done cryotherapy. At Bautista Health & Anti-Aging you can experience whole-body cryotherapy in our state-of-the-art cryochamber. Whole-body cryotherapy is the brief and intense exposure to cold, with the intention of triggering the body’s natural healing process. Whole-body cryotherapy machines were invented in Japan in the 1970s as a treatment for arthritis, quickly gained popularity, and are now widely used in many countries and across the US.

Everyone can benefit from whole-body cryotherapy

This short, but effective treatment reduces inflammation and releases endorphins that help alleviate pain, boost energy and metabolism, and increase the body’s natural healing abilities.

From the elite athlete in training, the weekend warrior wanting recovery, the post-op patient supplementing PT, to the person in chronic pain looking for an alternative form of relief. Come experience cryotherapy and see how it helps you.

Whole-body cryotherapy sessions at Bautista Health & Anti-Aging involve entering a cryochamber where you are exposed to breathable air that is chilled to an average temperature of -120°F. The cold significantly lowers the skin’s temperature in a quick, two to four- minute session, which activates the nervous system and causes the blood vessels to constrict, effectively shutting down the inflammation process. Blood is sent to the body’s core where it is re-oxygenated and enriched. The endocrine system also reacts and releases hormones to be carried by the bloodstream.

When you step out of the cryochamber, this freshly oxygenated blood flushes out to the rest of the body, carrying hormones back out to the entire body. This process provides for a rush of endorphins, promoting a feeling of well-being and positivity. Every body’s reaction is unique and the results impact everyone differently. Whole-body cryotherapy is not considered a medical procedure and research is still emerging about this type of cold therapy. While the benefits of cold therapy and cold thermogenesis are well-supported, we don’t know yet how whole-body cryotherapy compares or if it has the same long-term benefits, though the anecdotal evidence and initial studies are promising. Like most things in life, whole-body cryotherapy carries risks if done incorrectly, but may have many benefits when done correctly.
