Cryotherapy machines have become increasingly popular in recent years. This is because average consumers and organizations have begun recognizing the impact that they can have on a person’s physical and mental well-being. Cryotherapy users have found that cryo machines not only help boost someone’s mood and energy level but can aid in the treatment of skin disorders and muscle injuries.

How Cryotherapy Machines Work

When people step into a whole-body cryotherapy chamber, it fills with nitrogen vapor, which drops its temperature down to a range of -130°F (-90°C) and -184°F (-120°C). Sessions inside a cryo machine are monitored and only last about three minutes.

Why Use a Cryo Machine?

As cryotherapy machines have become more widespread, several press outlets have examined the potential benefits of using them.

For example, U.S. News and World Report published a story in January 2016 titled “Should You Try Whole Body Cryotherapy?” The piece centers on Leasha West, a former Marine and combat instructor who, up to that point, had undergone a three-minute session in a cryotherapy chamber every day for two months straight.

According to West, she first heard about whole body cryotherapy from clients at the insurance agency that she runs. She decided to try it out for her muscle stiffness and back pain and ended up loving it. The benefits that she cites in the article include:

• Pain Relief
• Increased Energy
• Increased Metabolism
• Younger-Looking Skin
• Better Sleep
• Feelings of Euphoria

In addition to West, the U.S. News article has quotes from several medical experts who address claims like these. They acknowledge that cryo machines can help produce effects like the ones listed above, but they stress that cryotherapy should not be considered a panacea or cure-all. Instead, they emphasize that people should adopt good lifestyle habits—not smoking to keep skin healthy, making dietary changes to lose weight—over relying on cryo chambers to do the work for them.

The article ends by advising readers to consult their doctors before signing up for cryo machine sessions. Pregnant women and people with heart conditions, hypertension and other health issues should not use cryotherapy.

Impact Cryotherapy’s top-quality cryotherapy chambers are used by businesses and organizations across the United States and in several foreign countries. A wide range of consumers—including professional athletes—have found that sessions in a cryo machine have helped treat injuries and improve performance.
