Top 10 Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy

By HighKey Balance

April 20, 2023

Cryotherapy continues to rise in popularity around the globe, especially as athletes discover the healing power of this cold therapy. But cryotherapy doesn’t just help athletes; it has a lasting impact on almost all systems in the human body.

Read on to discover whole body cryotherapy benefits that you can experience when you add cryotherapy to your health routine.

1. Reduction of Inflammation

Long-term inflammation can have severe effects on the body. Whole body cryotherapy increases anti-inflammatory cytokines in your blood, which reduces inflammation throughout your systems, helping you feel better.

2. Increases Joint Mobility

As inflammation in the body decreases, this grants you more joint mobility. Additionally, whole body cryotherapy also increases beta-endorphins in the blood which can further increase joint mobility in people with degenerative joint diseases.

3. Lowers Pain From Chronic Conditions

Many chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis are greatly improved by the inflammation reduction experienced with cryotherapy, as well as reduced disease activity which helps to lower pain.

4. Reduces Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress can be damaging to your body. Whole body cryotherapy decreases oxidative stress, which, in turn, helps those suffering from stress-related diseases like multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia.

5. Helps Treat Anxiety and Depression

Studies have shown that cryotherapy helps reduce anxiety and depression when used along with medication. More evidence is needed, but lowering stress likely explains this benefit.

Always check with a mental health professional if you experience one of these conditions and want to try cryotherapy.

6. Helps With Recovery From Intense Exercise

Because cryotherapy helps reduce pain and inflammation, it has become popular among athletes who use it to speed up their healing after intense exercise sessions.

7. Increases Athletic Performance

Whole body cryotherapy helps increase anaerobic capacity, which, in turn, can help an athlete to achieve improved athletic performance. For athletes to achieve improved results, cryotherapy is needed regularly.

8. Boosts Immunity

Whole body cryotherapy causes your body to produce more white blood cells, which boosts your overall immunity to viruses and bacteria. This means that by adding cryotherapy to your health routine, you may get sick less frequently.

9. Reduces Eczema

While whole body cryotherapy won’t cure eczema, it does reduce the dryness of the skin, which is a major factor in eczema breakouts. Many people who used cryotherapy found their eczema improved with regular cryotherapy.

10. Better Sleep

Cryotherapy can help you sleep better at night because of the reduction of stress and inflammation. Not only that, but cryotherapy helps with restless leg syndrome and anxiety — two things which may also be keeping you up at night.
