Have you heard of cryotherapy? Cryotherapy means “cold therapy.” This type of therapy utilizes extreme cold temperatures (-220°F ) for 3 minute treatments that help promote faster recovery from injuries and joint pain. The cold temperatures stimulate skin sensors to activate a central nervous system response using a release of endorphins which are the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators.
Our Morgan Koziar was live this morning at CrossRoads Cryotherapy to learn more about the therapy and who can benefit from the treatments. One of the co-owners, Aaron Kovach says there are many benefits of receiving cyrotherapy treatments, and he says it’s like a modern day version of the ice bath.
