Chill Cryosauna for Athletic Recovery

Athletic Recovery for Athletes

Injuries are inevitable when you’re an athlete. Some injuries are minor while some may require surgery but you don’t have to be an athlete like Labron James to have muscle injury. Many health-conscious everyday people have personal fitness goals and take daily walks, enjoy jogging a few miles, or are in training for a marathon or triathlon. In other words, you don’t have to be a serious competitor to get a muscle injury and need athletic recovery.

Cryotherapy has been used by famous athletes and stars for years to be a tried and true answer but many such injury sufferers don’t turn to cryotherapy for athletic recovery for three reasons. They aren’t convinced it works, they don’t do it enough, and they avoid it because it’s uncomfortable.

 

Consider the Facts – It Works!

Applying cold to an injury produces two important effects. It helps relieve pain, and it reduces swelling. Cold slows down nerve activity, which reduces the sensation of pain. It also does it without any of the side effects that prescription or OTC medications might cause.

Cryotherapy helps reduce swelling and allows your body to heal faster. Excess swelling can impede the healing process. Slower cellular metabolism means less cell death and therefore less tissue for the body to repair.

Try it more than once

Every athlete knows that he or she is supposed to apply cold right after an injury occurs. However, all too often this is the only time that athletes do it. Successful application of cryotherapy requires multiple sessions. While this might be inconvenient, it is necessary to get back to a normal routine as fast as possible.

Regular use of Cryotherapy promotes anti-inflammatory properties, which decreases recovery time by up to 50%, to improve ability to train, recover and perform. Adding cryotherapy to your regimen helps keep your body in peak physical shape and gives you an edge on your opponents.

It is not as uncomfortable as an ice bath

We all know that ice baths are used after workouts but can be some of athletes’ worst nightmares. Athletes usually endure an ice bath from 8-10 minutes, sometimes longer. Although the cold is intense in cryotherapy, the air is dry and doesn’t leave the skin wet. It is well-tolerated by those who are not tolerant of the cold. It’s a simple process and only takes three minutes.

A session at Chill Cryosauna immediately after exercise has been proven to enhanced muscular recovery by constraining the inflammatory process. This therapy allows for more intense, higher volume training; enabling you to maximize your full potential. The great thing about Cryotherapy is it’s for anyone who wants to perform at their highest level and feel amazing!

 

Whole Body Vibration


Whole body vibration can offer some fitness and health benefits. With whole body vibration, you stand, sit or lie on a machine with a vibrating platform

How doe it work?

whole body vibrationAs the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to your body, forcing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second. The activity may cause you to feel as if you’re exerting yourself.

Advocates say that as little as 10 minutes a day of whole-body vibration three times a week may aid weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, build strength and decrease the stress hormone cortisol.

It’s not yet clear if whole-body vibration provides the same range of health benefits as exercise you actively engage in, such as walking, biking or swimming.

Beyond Sports Fitness

Whole-body vibration may also have a role beyond sports and fitness. Some research shows that whole-body vibration, when performed correctly can:

  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage and circulation
  • Helps eliminate the fat from the body
  • Burns calories
  • Reduces fat and the appearance of cellulite
  • Targets key areas of the body
  • One ten minute session equals 60 minutes of traditional exercise

Still, if you want to lose weight and improve fitness, enjoy a healthy diet and include physical activity in your daily routine. If you choose whole-body vibration, remember to do aerobic and strength training activities as well.

Always to be safe, check with your doctor before using it, especially if you’re pregnant or have any health problems.

Try it today! We offer Whole Body Vibration as a great companion to Cryotherapy or Body Contour. 10 minutes for $10.
