Whole Body Cryotherapy

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) in Bangalore, Karnataka is a sophisticated method of cold therapy involving three minutes of skin exposure to temperatures between -200°F to -250°F. 

While this modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatic diseases, studies conducted over the last two decades have established cryotherapy as a powerful adjunct treatment for reducing symptoms of pain and inflammation associated with a number of chronic conditions. Further more, cryotherapy significantly improves recovery time for athletes, treats skin conditions and aids in weight loss. 

The sympathetic nervous system is stimulated by the skin’s cold receptors, causing severe vasoconstriction, followed by rapid vasodilation. Blood flow to the skin’s surface and extremities is redirected to insulate vital organs and maintain core temperature, which can fluctuate by only 4.5° C between states of hypothermia and hyperthermia.

These responses are due to perceived life-threatening conditions; therefore, thermal regulation is trivial as the body is forced to activate a cascade of powerful adaptive (survival) mechanisms involving the body’s most crucial systems. 

Cryotherapy immediately improves blood circulation, ensuring adequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients to bodily tissues, while improving the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

Professional teams and high-performance athletes are now utilizing Whole Body Cryotherapy to win championships and outperform opponents. For decades cryotherapy has been used in athletics and training to relieve and treat intense and chronic pain associated with an athletic injury and overuse of muscles, tendons and ligaments. The positive effects have been proven in the field of sports medicine as a recovery procedure from bodily damage and injury due to the anti-inflammatory, restorative and rehabilitation properties of Whole Body Cryotherapy.

GAIN THE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

The body’s direct response of exposure to the hyper-cooled nitrogen gas of Cryotherapy is immediate vasoconstriction & vasodilation. This bodily process rids itself of toxins and detrimental bi-products resulting in more oxygenated, purified blood. This purified & ultra-oxygenated blood creates a healthy environment that allows muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue to perform at much higher, more efficient levels allowing the body to repair and strengthen itself and increase its stamina during a game or competition. You will FEEL the physiological edge!

SPEED UP RECOVRY

Due to the higher concentration of oxygen and bodily nutrients after a whole body cryotherapy treatment, the body’s muscles, ligaments and tendons will absorb and utilize the purified and ultra-concentrated environment to boost metabolic activity and recovery in the system. Not only will your muscles recover faster and more efficiently, but your body will also rid itself of the detrimental bi-products of intense muscle usage resulting in less pain, more range-of-motion, and recovery back to its most efficient state.

In South India, Physio Mantra is the only center which provides Whole Body Cryotherapy for Athletes and other clients.
