Whole Body Cryotherapy Benefits

Universal Cryotherapy


Whole body cryotherapy research has shown immediate benefits to soft tissue, internal organs, the nervous system and energy meridians. With so many positive effects to the body, extreme cold therapy has greatly increased our patients’ overall well-being.


Athletes and weekend warriors have been a strong force behind the growth of whole body cryotherapy at Universal Chiropractic. Physical activity achievement is dependent upon the body’s ability to train, perform, and recover. Cryotherapy provides the most effective and convenient treatment to give athletes the competitive advantage they need to win and recover faster.


Mood Enhancement


There have been numerous studies that show just 2-3 minutes of Whole Body Cryotherapy is beneficial to those who

suffer from depression, anxiety or both. The reason for this response is attributed to hormonal responses that occur as a result of the Whole-Body Cryotherapy treatments. Clients report that after finishing a Whole-Body Cryotherapy session, they feel an improvement in mood, a deeper sense of relaxation, and an overall euphoria, all because of the aforementioned hormonal changes.


Sport Injury Recovery

When you place force against a muscle, you create tiny little microscopic tears, which then must repair. By utilizing Cryo modalities, you work out more effectively by healing your muscles at a faster rate. Quite simply, people feel less pain and soreness in their injured or affected areas after Cryotherapy. Whole Body Cryotherapy reduces inflammation, promotes rapid healing and minimizes pain. Consistent treatments accelerate healing to get you back to full mobility as soon as possible.



Anti-Aging & Skin Rejuvenation

The natural process of aging causes skin to wrinkle and sag. This is due to the loss of collagen in the body. By briefly freezing the outer layer of skin throughout the entire body, the deep layers of collagen are disrupted and

respond by creating more collagen. As a result, the skin regains elasticity and appears both younger and smoother.

By focusing exclusively on the face with Local Cryotherapy, the surface of the face is enhanced immediately as the pores will appear much smaller and all inflammation and puffiness in the face is reduced, or even eliminated.
