ProRecovery Questions and Answers
Cryotherapy is the science of exposing the body to sub-zero temperatures in order to stimulate physical and mental health benefits. It reduces inflammation in the body by boosting an anti-inflammatory chemical called norepinephrine and boosts blood circulation throughout the body, which results in a higher metabolic and caloric burn rate. The session also increases the level of endorphins, which can elevate mood and reduce stress. In terms of beauty benefits, cryotherapy increases collagen production, which in turn tightens the skin and brings forth a youthful glow. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a three-minute session that exposes the entire body to extreme temperatures as low as -230ºF in order to promote recovery, performance, wellness, beauty and weight loss benefits.
You step into the chamber with minimal clothing (slippers, socks, gloves and optional shorts and top). At -166˚F, the temperature at the surface of your skin drops near freezing. This is the cue for the receptors in the skin (nerve endings) to start sending signals to the central nervous system, immediately activating simultaneous processes in your body. Your blood circulation will improve, and the production of serotonin and endorphins (natural painkillers and feel-good substances) and natural anti-inflammatories will be set into motion. Toxins and metabolism residues are immediately disposed of by the stronger flow of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood. The body scans itself for poorly functioning parts and self-healing begins.
Cryotherapy sessions at ProRecovery are not dangerous as we have state of the art machines that separate the liquid nitrogen from the cold air, thus the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin. A trained operator is always present during the session to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.
Whole-body cryotherapy sessions last just three minutes.
Absolutely. The chamber at ProRecovery is designed to lift or lower a client to a level they are comfortable with. Also, the door in the XR Cryo chamber doesn’t have a latch on it so you can push it open at any time during your session, leaving you in control while in the chamber
If you are experiencing any discomfort during the session you have total control to stop the session immediately. You can leave the cryotherapy chamber at any time. The doors of the XR chamber are closed with magnets allowing you to easily open them yourself. For your safety, an operator will always be right outside the chamber and will ask whether you are feeling OK every few seconds to ensure your comfort.
Yes! And it’s actually recommended. Ten minutes of light effort right after your session stimulates your circulation and promotes a longer-lasting effect following your session.
We generally recommend 2-3 sessions per week for the first month to see results, and then one session every week thereafter to maintain the maximum benefits. Every session can be beneficial. One session provides instant relief from inflammation and is good for an energy boost that will last a full day. Seven sessions will help move the body from repair to rehabilitation. Three to six sessions will provide increased energy, send enriched blood to damaged areas of the body and begin to provide joint-pain relief and collagen production.
To receive the full benefits of NormaTec compression therapy, we suggest using it for approximately 30 minutes.
During your compression therapy session at ProRecovery you’ll have the sensation of a very tight squeeze that works its way up the chambers of the device you’re using (arms, legs or hips). It’s very relaxing, much like a massage, as it soothes your sore and tired muscles.
The Pulse technology at ProRecovery is designed to externally compress the limbs in a way that mimics normal physiology using a sophisticated pulsing, gradient and distal release compression pattern for the most effective recovery tool.
