Created to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern employs three key techniques to maximize your recovery: pulsing, gradients, and distal release. Benefits include increased circulation, reduced muscle soreness, refreshed and energized muscles, flushing of lactic acid and faster recovery time.
Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy exposes the body to subzero temperatures for 2-3 minutes. This causes the skin’s receptors to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system. The body perceives this sudden and extreme cold to be a life-threatening situation and activates a chain of powerful survival mechanisms involving the body’s most crucial systems. Vasoconstriction occurs and blood is redirected from the skin to preserve the vital organs and maintain core temperature. When the patient re-enters a room-temperature environment, vasodilation occurs and the blood rushes back to the skin. Blood circulation is naturally stimulated and oxygenated blood is delivered to damaged tissue.
Cryotherapy is used to decrease inflammation and pain, increase cellular survival, promote faster muscle recovery and promote overall health. Benefits of repeated cryotherapy treatments may also include better sleep, increased metabolism, improvement of skin conditions, effective chronic pain management, reduced stress and anxiety and an overall sense of well-being.
