Happy Deepavali!

All of us at the ONLY Group wishes you a very happy Deepavali! May your weekend be filled with light, love, and happiness.

It is especially important to prioritise your mind and health in this increasingly stressful world. Having to juggle work with personal life can sometimes bring an inordinate amount of stress to our lives, and our health usually suffers as a result of that. Lots of us turn to Yoga to stay fit and healthy both physically and mentally, but do you know that you can combine Cryotherapy with Yoga to amplify the benefits? It is no longer a treatment just for top athletes and Hollywood celebrities: let us show you how you can fuse Yoga with Cryotherapy to keep your body and mind in the best condition always!

Be Mindful:

Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical exercise with breathing control, and mental meditation. Studies have shown that yoga and meditation is useful in lowering stress levels in a variety of populations. People suffering from chronic anxiety, insomnia, and even bipolar disorder have benefited from this exercise. But did you know that Cryotherapy can also bring you similar benefits? Stay for a couple of minutes in our CryoChamber, and you can feel your stress and anxiety melt away. Walk out feeling more energetic, relaxed, and recharged, ready to take on the day and all its challenges!

Boost Immunity:

Besides alleviating the effects of mental conditions, there is evidence that yoga can contribute towards reducing risk factors for chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart diseases. Researchers have found that yoga is as effective in lowering blood pressure as some nutrition or weight counselling programs. Cryotherapy works in very much the same ways – by lowering the body’s temperature, cryotherapy treatment triggers your body’s regulatory reactions, boosting your immune function. Better yet, it can also kick start your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories than baseline function. Just imagine how much more effective your routine would be if you add a few minutes of cryotherapy to it!

A song of Ice and Fire:

Bikram Yoga involves stepping into a sauna-hot room and flowing through a series of 26 poses. It is purported to allow the body to stretch, detoxify, relieve stress, build strength, and even heal chronic pain such as back problems, knee problems, arthritis – why not harness the power of both fire and ice and add cryotherapy to this routine? Whole Body Cryotherapy was originally developed to alleviate pain for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, and can do wonders to help reduce chronic pain especially in the joints. Let Cryotherapy pave the way for you to a pain-free life!

Discover these benefits of cryotherapy for yourself, and see how it can help you achieve the optimum state your body and mind could be at. Find out more about this cool treatment now!

 

Can Cryotherapy Really Improve Your Performance?

An Ice-Cold Solution

In the past, Whole Body Cryotherapy was only common in the athletic arena, but now the sphere has expanded to become one of the the hottest Hollywood treatments for fat loss and general wellness. If you have just heard of this liquid nitrogen treatment for the first time and you’re interested to know more about it and try it out for yourself, definitely check out the following sections as we explore deeper into this cool treatment.

What Is the Principle behind Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatment?

WBC was first developed and launched in Japan in the 1970s, where it was used to manage chronic pain relating to to rheumatoid arthritis. It was apparently so effective that many other doctors found various uses for it, such as to treat skin conditions and chronic pain stemming from a variety of reasons.

Chill Out

At Absolute Zero, – our Whole Body Cryotherapy centre in Singapore – we make use of a cryotherapy chamber (which we call the CryoChamber) which cools dry air down to  a chilling -150°C. The patient stays inside the cryotherapy chamber for up to three minutes per session. None of your skin comes in direct contact with the liquid nitrogen at any point, so you don’t have to worry about getting frostbite from that!

What Happens During a Cryogenic Therapy Session?

You will be asked to strip down and step into the air-cooled chamber, which is chilled below -100 degrees Celsius.  And not to worry, claustrophobes! Your head will constantly remain outside while the chamber brings your body temperature down gradually.

The cooling of the body tissues serves to activate all sorts of regulatory reactions to bring you benefits like reduced pain, less muscle soreness, and it can even kick start your metabolism!

What are the benefits of whole body cryotherapy?

If you’re looking to improve your health and enhance overall wellness, then this treatment may just be the one for you!

The minutes-long procedure immediately releases endorphins that make you happy and keep you energetic, improving your mood after each session.  Some of our patients report feeling a sense of euphoria lasting for hours after their session! Other benefits include improved physical performance, especially among athletes, who may also experience faster recovery from sore muscles, joint pain and sports-related injuries. This means that you can return to training faster, which in the world of competitive sports translates to a drastic improvement in performance. And the side effects of cryotherapy? Virtually none. Improper use might lead to mild frost bite, but at our clinic, this procedure is carried out by experienced and trained staff who absolutely prioritises your safety!

And the best thing about it is that WBC can aid in weight loss.
