Benefits of Cryotherapy

Benefits of Cryotherapy
Train harder, recover faster, perform better

Before training: Cool down instead of warming up

Everyone who is working out is moving and everyone who is moving is producing heat. Our body tries to regulate this heat by lowering the core temperature and enhances the blood circulation in our skin and limbs. This means, by implication, a weaker blood circulation of our muscular system which causes a decrease of our athletic performance. One way to counteract – or at least delay – this process is to lower the core temperature in another way. The solution for this are whole body cryo chambers. In contrast to traditional cold therapy, they do not only cool down the skin temperature but affect the whole body. This makes them way more effective and leads to top results in no time. If they are used preventive before the actual game, they lead to a greater endurance and long-lasting power. The cool temperature of the cryo chamber not only helps to regulate the body’s own energy production but also lowers the environmental heat load. This way athletes can draw throughout the game from the energy they have saved in the beginning..

During training: Boost your performance

Only 2-3 minutes with LifeCube are enough for an effective cryo therapy. So why not make use of the half-time break and mobilize your forces to gain another energy boost? The extremely low temperatures of -80°C inside the LifeCube chamber can result in an improvement of the muscle’s blood flow, an increase in the oxygen absorption, and a temporary release of endorphins. This short but very intensive cryotraining is so effective that top-athletes do not only use it during the half time, but up to five times a day with the aim of generating a better performance in the long run.

After training: Cryotherapy for muscle regeneration

This cold application can be used before, during, or after the training or sport event to boost the performance or facilitate regeneration processes. Our body reacts to low temperatures with a mobilization of its immune system and an increase of its muscle’s blood circulation. Toxic substances, lactates, and inflammatory substances, which arise from frequent muscle contractions, can thus be broken down and removed from the body much quicker. This can result in athletes regenerating faster, suffering seldom from DOMS and being ready to exercise again in no time.

After injuries: Get better sooner with cryotherapy

Whole body cryotherapy is not only used during the active training, but also afterwards in case of sport injuries. Its goal is to improve the well-being, to relieve the pain, and to reduce the inflammations. Since cold leads in general to a release of endorphins and anti-inflammatories, it causes a reduction of swellings and pain. For this reason, cryotherapy is often used in combination with other therapeutic treatments to facilitate the healing process or to shorten downtimes after sports injuries or certain surgical procedures.

Applications and benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy

What is whole body cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is used in medicine, for regeneration and to improve efficiency and performance in
professional sports.
Developed in Japan in 1980, it is regarded as one of the most effective physical therapy options for rheumatic diseases.
In the very short treatment time of just a few minutes, the clients experience temperatures down to -110 °C/-170 °F. After a medical check, the user enters a chamber with cold air down to -110 °C/- 170 °F and remains in the chamber up to 3 minutes..

Treatment Preparation

If the patient passes the medical check successfully, the observer instructs the user regarding the treatment.


Before entering the whole body cryotherapy chamber, the user must:
o Remove any jewelry, watches, glasses, etc.
o Ensure, that the skin is dry and preferably not freshly greased

The patient enters the whole body cryotherapy chamber wearing:

o Swimwear
o Mouthguards
o Akren protection
o Ear protection

o Keep moving: If music is playing, the should user keeps moving.
o Time check: User feels comfortable, if the supervisor tells the remaining time every 30 seconds.
o Treatment time: As has been proved, there is no benefit to a treatment time more than 3 minutes.
o Close the door: Never open two doors at the same time!
o Best results: Serial application with one or two treatments per day for several days (depending on indication).
o Take a break: Wait 3 – 4 hours between two treatment sessions.
