Vacation season is here

It’s that time again—time to think about a summer vacation. Whether you are headed to the beach, a family reunion, Disney, or just hanging by a pool, like most people, you’ll want to make sure you look and feel your best. There are lots of things you know you can do to achieve that—exercise more, eat healthy, get sufficient sleep, reduce stress and keep a positive outlook. But did you know that Whole-Body Cryotherapy (WBC) may help you maximize your results in all of those areas?

Boost your workout results

You know the drill—you start working out again and for the next day or two you are really sore! That Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) can be discouraging and may keep you from continuing. Cryotherapy can help reduce that soreness and get you back to the gym quicker. That’s why professional athletes in all sports are using cryotherapy to improve their performance. Even if ongoing pain in your knees, back, shoulders, etc. has been keeping you from being as active as you want to be, cryotherapy can help relieve it.

Speed up your metabolism

Healthy eating is critical to looking and feeling great. Improving your diet (not “dieting”) can increase your energy and reduce the inflammation that may be causing your pain. Not only does WBC reduce the inflammation in your body, but it reportedly burns 500-800 calories after a session. Plus, Cryotherapy has been reported to have aesthetic benefits, such as increasing collagen production, improving skin tone and reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Improve your sleep

You probably know that sleep loss is associated with difficulty maintaining or losing weight. Studies published in The Journal of the American Medical Association and The Lancet suggest that sleep loss may increase hunger and affect the body’s metabolism. Lack of sleep can make you feel hungry even when you are full, and it can increase fat storage. Whole-body Cryotherapy can help you achieve a prolonged period of rest, and continued sessions can minimize sleep disturbances over time.

Relieve your stress, anxiety and depression

One immediate benefit of a Cryotherapy session is a rush of endorphins, which leads to a noticeable mood enhancement. Studies show that an increased level of endorphins and a decreased release of cortisol from Cryotherapy can produce a feeling of well-being and an analgesic (pain relief) effect, while reducing stress levels. Studies have shown that WBC can decrease the symptoms of depression and fight depressive disorders overall.

Prepare for summer by doing all you can to look and feel your best. There’s a reason that athletes and celebrities are turning to Whole-Body Cryotherapy!

“In season or off season, I love coming to Peak for cryo. Whether I just finished with a hard workout, or I come in to relieve my daily aches and pains, I leave feeling great. When I pair it with my massages from Kate, I feel even better! Over the years, I’ve had multiple injuries, and no matter what is hurting, this helps me get back into the gym.” – Jennifer Mouser – Captain of the UD club softball team.
