Cryotherapy UK

Cryotherapy in the UK is a growing trend with the use in elite sports in the United Kingdom, driving up the profile of the treatment and its use for recovery and rehabilitation post-exercise.

The cryotherapy treatment places the patient into a specially designed cryogenic chamber where the air inside is cooled to -135°C. The patient enters for a period of three minutes during which time the body undergoes a reaction to the extreme cold called vasoconstriction, driving cold blood from the extremities to the core. On leaving the chamber, the blood having being flushed through the body’s normal processes is returned to the arms and legs but is now enriched with enzymes. The resulting rush of endorphins and positive energy, gives the patient a series of benefits from the treatment such as recovery from fatigue, reduction in inflammation, reinvigoration as well as providing a great night’s sleep.

Already available in major UK cities such as London, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and others, cryotherapy is being used by amateur athletes for recovery as well as health and beauty advocates for weight-loss and skin-toning. In addition, UK sufferers of chronic illnesses such as rheumatism, arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression and many more, are using the cryotherapy chambers.
