The Whole Body Cryotherapy
A secret that has been well kept from the United States of America has finally made its way out of the shadows. Cutting edge technology, with chilling effects. Cryo technology has some of the greatest benefits of the day and age. Below you will find a collection of information that tells you all about the wonderful effects that this technology has on your body and overall well-being.
What is it?
Whole Body Cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in 1978, and the benefits have been studied and refined in Europe since that time. A Veda Light Wellness Center now provides the latest whole body cryotherapy benefits through the use of cutting edge technology imported by professionals from Millennium Ice USA.
How does it work?
The fast and effective temperature drop causes the cold sensors in the skin to send a distress signal to the brain which induces the “fight or flight” syndrome within the body. The resulting “cryo effect” occurs when the body causes the blood to rush to the core as a natural defense mechanism for protection from the cold external temperatures. While circulating through the core the blood becomes naturally enriched with valuable nutrients and oxygen to protect the body.
Upon exit from the device the body instantly circulates the nutrient and oxygen rich blood back out to the body, thereby helping the user realize a faster, more effective recovery than they could ever experience through the use of an ice bath or other cold therapy. Also, a person's skin temperature initially drops to 30-32O F before rising to 95O F for 30-45 seconds upon exit (normal skin temperature is 90.5 degrees) and then goes back to normal. This phenomena results in skin rejuvenation and an energy boost lasting up to 6 hours.
When the subject's exterior is cooled to these levels, the immune system is stimulated, and every organ in the body is affected positively.
The biochemical processes that occur at this time involve a great quantity of energy. It is believed that this process is also responsible for fat loss reported by many users.

The top layers of the skin react to the cold as a danger signal and send a message to the brain that acts as a stimulant to all the regulatory functions of the body. This produces a review of all areas which may not be working to their fullest potential.
