At Ohio Cryo, we use a cryosauna chamber built in The United States by Impact Cryotherapy. When it’s time for treatment, a client will strip down to the undergarments and then put on warm mittens & slippers to protect the most vulnerable extremities from the threat of frostbite, as well as a robe.
When the client steps into the cryosauna for their treatment, the door will shut and the hood will be closed atop of the chamber exposing just the client’s head. That’s when the three-minute treatment begins and the ultra-cooled nitrogen gas is released, triggering thermoreceptors in the dermis which sends electrical impulses to the brain and central nervous system, sending the body into “Survival Mode”. This process sends hyper-oxygenated and nutritious blood to the body’s vital organs in its core.
When the three minutes are up, the client steps out of the chamber and the body immediately begins to warm up to its natural temperature. Vasodilation begins, sending the oxygenated and nutritious blood back out to the body’s periphery. This process provides the body with extra nutrients, rids the body of toxins, produces collagen and activates the body’s natural cell regeneration cycle to produce newer, healthier cells. The end results: a reduction in discomfort & pain in areas of inflammation.
