If you’re not making the progress you want to see on your present weight loss program, don’t quit working out and eating healthy. Instead, add cryotherapy to your program of weight loss and you’ll see a difference in its effectiveness. Cryotherapy won’t make you lose weight if you’re eating tons of calories and living a sedentary lifestyle, but if you’re following a healthy eating plan and a program of regular exercise, it will boost your efforts and get faster results.
It’s the way the body reacts to extreme cold that improves your ability to lose weight.
When you’re exposed to cold temperatures, the brain sends a message to the body to constrict the surface and peripheral blood vessels, which sends the blood deep inside to the internal organs, preventing it from getting cold. While it’s there, it goes through the process of cleansing and reloading with nutrients and oxygen. Once you leave the cold, circulation is sped up as the blood flows back to the surface. The cryochamber provides that cold environment. The temperatures are between -200 degrees Fahrenheit and -256 degrees Fahrenheit. It sends the blood deep into the body and when you exit, that rush to the surface boosts circulation.
If you think you’re burning calories when you work out, imagine how many you’ll burn shivering.
You only stay a few minutes in the cryochamber, but in that few minutes you’ll burn hundreds of calories. It takes a lot to keep the body warm in those cold conditions. That increased metabolism keeps on boosting your weight loss by burning more calories for hours after you leave the chamber. While it won’t replace a healthy diet or regular exercise, it will help to increase the number of calories you burn. That extra boost may make the difference between success and disappointment.
It offers more than just weight loss; it can improve your appearance in other ways.
Cryotherapy can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite, that bumpy, orange peel skin that makes you uncomfortable to be seen in a swimsuit. That also makes it a good match for any weight loss program when you want to look your best. The boost in circulation also helps your complexion by providing oxygen and nutrients to every cell. You’ll love your improved appearance.
- When you consider that cryotherapy also helps relieves the pain of sore muscles, it’s the perfect match for exercise as part of weight loss.
- Is stress one of the reasons you overeat? Cryotherapy can help. It boosts the production of endorphins that can help you feel relaxed and at peace.
- Some people love cryotherapy so much that they do it every day to boost their energy levels and get that great feeling it provides for hours.
- Cryotherapy reduces inflammation, which is the leading cause of many serious conditions. You’ll be doing your body a favor and lowering your risk of illness.
