Cryotherapy First Experience

I’m standing naked, except for my boxer shorts, staring at the cryotherapy chamber that is about to engulf me in sub-freezing liquid nitrogen. I’m terrified. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I was this scared.

The 20-something year old woman standing next to me gives me two socks and two gloves to put on. “These will keep you from getting frostbite. It’s important you keep them on.”

I think, what about my other parts?

I walk into the chamber and she seals me in. It’s like standing in an upright tanning bed with my head poking out of the top.

I assume the fig leaf position and just like David Byrne I wonder, well, how did I get here?

I first heard about whole body cryotherapy when I was hanging out with some US Navy SEALs in San Diego. They told me that some rich private citizen bought the SEALs some chambers from Japan and shipped them in so they could speed up recovery from injuries. At that time, it sounded to me like some kind of dangerous voodoo.

The second time I heard about cryotherapy chambers was when Tony Robbins mentioned he has one in each of his homes and starts every morning with a deep freeze. He talked about it shocking the system and curing inflammation problems including arthritis. Interesting, I thought, but was still skeptical.

The third time I saw a cryotherapy chamber was on episode 9 of the HBO show, “Billions.” Hey, if a fictional hedge fund manager played by Damien Lewis is doing cryotherapy, I’m all in!

As I investigated cryotherapy further, I found all kinds of remarkable claims being made by manufacturers. Freezing your body apparently helps you to lose weight, tighten skin, relieve muscle pain, boost the immune system, and improve sleep quality. Of course, I really couldn’t find any proof of these claims.

The clinical research I did find was mixed, but there are studies showing a reduction in cell-signaling proteins that cause inflammation (specifically TNF-α, NF-κB, TGF-β and MMP-9). I learned that Lebron James, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and many professional athletes now use cryotherapy instead of old-fashioned ice baths. And I also learned that a 24-year old woman froze herself to death in Las Vegas last year.

So that’s how I ended up in the cryochamber.

It takes about thirty seconds to reach its maximum cold point. Nitrogen gas hugged my body and swirled out near my face. I ask the attendant just how cold it is.

“You hit negative 186 Celsius,” she answered.

That didn’t seem right to me. All the articles I read talked about typical temperatures being negative 100 degrees Fahrenheit with a maximum cold of negative 280 degrees Fahrenheit. But 186 Celsius is -303 Fahrenheit.

“Are you sure?” I ask.

She stared at the display panel for a moment. “I’m sure. That’s what it’s reading.”

Hmm, maybe she means Fahrenheit and not Celsius. Either way, it’s dang cold.

“If it’s that cold, how come it doesn’t actually freeze my body?” I ask.

“It’s a dry cold,” she replies with a straight face.

After the first minute I think, this isn’t too bad.

After the second minute, I start shivering and think it’s kind of like running outside in your underwear in the middle of the night during winter. Not that I can I really know what that’s like.

My fingers begin to numb so I start doing jazz hands down by my waist.

The third minute was a bit harder to take. Very uncomfortable. It wasn’t exactly cold like you’re used to feeling. It was more like a light burning sensation on the skin.

I started a breathing meditation to keep my mind off the cold.

“That’s three minutes,” she pressed a button and then opened the door. The nitrogen gas escaped, flooded the room and quickly dissipated.

As I stepped out and began to dress, I realized that I didn’t feel all that cold. It’s nothing at all like emerging from a swimming pool and racing for the towel to dry off and warm up. And within another minute, fully dressed and walking out to my car, I didn’t feel cold at all.

But I also didn’t feel any different. I didn’t experience the energy rush so many people talk about. All my normal muscle pains and carpal tunnel wrist were still there. And nope, I didn’t sleep any better at night.

And I feel disappointed. I wanted cryotherapy to work. Who doesn’t want more energy, less pain and better sleep all from a three minute treatment?

For me, the jury is still out and I’ll definitely try it again. It certainly wasn’t as bad as I had feared, and perhaps with more frequent use, or freezing immediately after my workouts would get better results. But for now, I’m off to investigate another extreme productivity tactic that research indicates will increase dopamine in the mesocorticolimbic pathway resulting in an instant mood boost. Yes, there is indeed a scientific case for cold showers.

  1. Who developed Cryotherapy treatment?
    The technology was developed and was introduced in Japan in 1978, originally for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, but was refined and researched further in Europe later.
  1. When was it developed?
    For over three decades, it’s used in both Japan and Europe. Since then, numerous research and studies have been published on medical journals regarding Cryotherapy effects. In the US, the treatment is also used and considered as a wellness modality.
  1. Why is it called Cryotherapy absolute zero?
    The sauna chamber utilizes gasiform liquid nitrogen that works to lower the skin’s surface temperature by up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit for up to three minutes.
  1. How does Cryotherapy work?
    A patient is required to go into the chamber with appropriate Cryotherapy temperature but he isn’t in direct contact with the nitrogen gas. His skin reacts to the cold temperature sending a message to the brain, which acts as a stimulant to the regulatory organs of the body. The brain then scans all body parts to detect if they may not be working to their fullest potential. This exposure to lower temperatures releases the body’s endorphins and anti-inflammatory molecules.
  1. Is whole body Cryotherapy safe?
    Yes, it is. It has been used for more than three decades, and yet, there is no severe adverse body reaction recorded. The problem may only occur if a patient would step into the chamber with wet clothing or socks, which may freeze immediately at the low temperature.
  1. Is the treatment comfortable?
    Yes, it is. A patient is required to wear protective clothing, including cotton underwear for men, cotton socks, and gloves. He or she will also be given a cotton band to cover the ears and a disposable mask to cover the mouth. And because the procedure lasts for only three minutes, the coldness is tolerable. While you may have pins and needles, it will disappear immediately after.
  1. What are Cryotherapy results?
    Some results you will get are the release of endorphins that will make you feel good and energetic, enhancing your mood in every session and effects can last for a couple of days.
  1. How many sessions do I need?
    The number of sessions varies from patient to patient, but initially, a maximum of 10 sessions are needed to gain maximum results. After, you will need maintenance treatments to improve results, but such will be spaced further apart.
  1. What are Cryotherapy benefits?
    There are so many benefits from the treatment. These include improved athletic performance, fast muscle recovery, sports injury prevention, intense exercise recovery, improved joint disorders, pain relief, mood elevation, improved energy and fat loss [which we’ll further explain in the next FAQ]
  1. Can it help me lose fat?
    Yes! Cryotherapy for weight loss is among the most sought after benefits of this treatment. Experts revealed that it speeds up your metabolism by up to three times faster and it works to reduce cellulite. It is possible due to the subzero temperature that helps in improving blood circulation, boosting the supply of nutrients and oxygen in the body, getting rid of toxins and toning the muscles. According to experts, Cryotherapy can reduce and burn fat, and so it is recommended in a wellness plan.

And from that time forward, numerous studies, researches and reviews have been conducted to develop the cold therapy principles, in particular to treatment against inflammation, pain management, weight loss, sports injury and muscle recovery and skin conditions.

One of the most common Cryotherapy questions surrounding the treatment, however, “Is there needed Cryotherapy healing time? There is none because it will not interfere with your body’s natural processes.

The procedure works behind the principle of stimulating the cold receptors of the body, sending them into an emergency state wherein rapid vasodilation follows for thinking that the body is about to reach its freezing point.

Following, the body is activating a multitude of survival mechanisms, immediately ensuring proper and sufficient blood and nutrient supply and improving blood circulation, making Cryotherapy for weight loss effective, too.
