Cryotherapy is the application of cold temperatures to the body to elicit a beneficial response. Daybreak utilizes liquid nitrogen as a cold source that can be safely used for local (facial) or whole-body treatment. The Impact Cryosauna utilizes custom-built software to administer an effective whole-body session in 3 minutes. This causes a physiological adaptive response of the body to extreme cold, which rapidly accelerates recovery and healing.
Whole body cryotherapy benefits include: pain relief, muscle healing, supports weight loss, reduces inflammation, improved immune function, stress reduction, help with skin problems, sleep improvement, improved mental health, faster recovery after overloading, and prevention of chronic disease.
