What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?

The human body has remarkable innate rejuvenating abilities that help it to recover from major health issues on its own. Many recent medical approaches use this principle to greater effect. Cryotherapy, often referred to as Cryo,  is one such practice that attempts to facilitate the process of curing a patient. There are several practitioners of Cryo and patients who will vouch for the effectiveness of this form of curing a human body from an ailment.

The medical profession is always on the lookout of newer forms of treating a patient. Mostly, these prac- tices are centred on the use of the human body’s powerful immune system. The sole concentration is to activate this mechanism to a higher level with the aid of an external force, without the use of medication.

In essence, Cryo involves the use of very low temperatures to cure and heal damaged tissues in the body which may be malignant as well. It is a practice that was used for centuries, but, never got the prominence it deserves.

On account of the low temperature further cell development is reduced and other related issues like inflammation and pain are diminished substantially. This is made possible by the constriction of the blood vessels that supply nutrition and oxygen to these damaged areas.

In most cases, Cryo is used to relieve painful conditions by freezing an irritated nerve that is the root cause of the pain. The damage to the nerve could have occurred for various medical reasons. It is also used to treat some cancerous tissues and other abnormal development of skin cells.
