Cryotherapy can make an impact on healing and rehabilitation

Throughout history, cultures have used cold as a means to build physical strength as well as heal. Our bodies have been designed to adapt to Cold, but we have lost some of this ability due to living in a temperature-controlled environment throughout the year.

Through scientific research, we have gained extensive knowledge about how Cold affects the body (longevity, cold shock proteins, brown adipose fat, etc.). However, there is still much more to learn and to understand.

At the Athletic Room, we believe that if we embrace how our bodies respond to the Cold, then there is a fountain of strength we can tap into. Cryotherapy can help:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Eliminate muscular pain
  • Reduce joint pain
  • Help athletic injuries
  • Reduce arthritis related pain and swelling
  • Lower migraine related pain

Cryotherapy Treatment in Houston

There’s a reason why so many professional athletes, celebrities, models, and high performers have made the jump from the traditional ice bath to Whole Body Cryotherapy.  The same cold benefits can be accomplished faster and more efficiently in as little as 3 minutes! Gone are the days of bathing suits, towels, bags of ice, and spending 15-20 minutes suffering in freezing water.  Our Cryotherapy chamber provides you with the convenience to get your recovery and continue with your day.

How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Allow us to simplify the science: During Cryotherapy, nitrogen vapor passes over your skin stimulating the cold sensors which trigger a number of processes to warm the body (i.e. Thermogenesis).  Some of the many benefits of Thermogenesis include:

  • tweaks to insulin production
  • tightening of the circulatory system
  • heightened mental awareness
  • increased metabolism
  • increased production of testosterone and growth hormone

All of these positive effects on the body result in benefits that can be felt in reduced soreness, leaving you feeling refreshed and re-energized.

Is Cryotherapy just for athletes?

No way. Everyone can experience the benefits of cold therapy. Whether you’re getting back into a body care routine after a hiatus, climbing the corporate ladder or juggling toddlers, Cryotherapy can help you feel and live your best. If you have any of the following conditions, please consult with the AR before scheduling a Cryotherapy appointment: Pregnancy, severe Hypertension (BP> 160/100), acute or recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, arrhythmia, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, cardiac pacemaker, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, venous thrombosis, acute or recent cerebrovascular accident, uncontrolled seizures, Raynaud’s Syndrome, fever, tumor disease, symptomatic lung disorders, bleeding disorders, severe anemia, infection, cold allergy, age less than 18 years (parental consent to treatment needed), age less than 15 (Doctor consent for treatment required), acute kidney and urinary tract diseases.

What is the minimum age for cryotherapy?

Our Cryo Chamber is designed for an adult-sized person in which the platform can be raised so your head is completely above the top rim of the unit. It cannot hurt children, yet they may simply be too small for our cryo-chamber. We recommend clients be at least 16 years old with parental/guardian consent and supervision. (But your parent or guardian can give it a try.)

Is there a weight limit?

Yes, the recommended range is 350 lbs. or less. In addition, the client must be able to stand comfortably inside the chamber so they are not touching the sides while rotating in a circular motion during treatment. Your safety and well-being are our top priority. We will assist you in accessing and measuring the cryo chamber for your safety.
