Benefits of cryotherapy


New member
People, including the self-proclaimed "ice man" Wim Hof, argue that extreme cold can improve mental and physical health and even prolong life. So what does science say?

Cryotherapy research is as new as the trend towards treatment. Therefore, doctors do not fully understand all the potential benefits and risks of this process.

In this article, we'll look at some of the possible benefits of cryotherapy healing, as well as other facts that a person may need to know before considering it.

  • Cryotherapy is any treatment that involves the use of freezing or near-freezing temperatures.
  • Because cryotherapy is new, some potential benefits are not yet proven.
  • Cryotherapy might be a safe alternative treatment and preventative for many ailments.
  • Cryotherapy can be unpleasant, particularly for people who are unaccustomed to the cold.

The most popular form of cryotherapy involves sitting in a cryotherapy booth for 3–5 minutes.

Some people undergo cryotherapy facials, which apply cold to the face only. Others use a cryotherapy wand to target specific areas, such as a painful joint.

Most people use the term cryotherapy to refer to whole-body cryotherapy.

This is non-medical treatment in a spa or similar setting.

Doctors, however, also use cryotherapy. For instance, very cold temperatures can be used to freeze off warts or cancerous cells.

Though unpleasant to begin with, cryotherapy tends to get better with each treatment, as the body adjusts to the low temperature.
