Why Are People Freezing Themselves? Sain Ferguson April 18, 2017
When she tore the meniscus in her knee, former model and fitness instructor Heather O'Neill was out of a job. She couldn't teach with her injury. She needed to heal, and fast. So, she tried something different. She decided to freeze her body. Or, more accurately, she decided to try cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy exposes your body to cold temperatures. And I mean extremely cold. In most cases, the client's body is enclosed in a chamber with temperatures ranging between -200°F and -240°F. After a few sessions, O'Neill was healed, and returned to work. Later, she used the same process to help heal a broken foot, and it worked again. She was so impressed with cryotherapy that she decided to open her own CryoFit studio.
Cryotherapy may sound futuristic, but it has actually been around for years. In 1978, a Japanese rheumatologist named Dr. Toshima Yamaguchi began researching whether rapid, short-term exposure to cold temperatures would be more effective than ice baths. He found that this rapid freezing brought relief to those with rheumatoid arthritis.
Since then, this treatment has spread to Europe, where further research was conducted. When top athletes started using whole-body cryotherapy to promote healing after sports injuries, the world took notice. Today, more than 400 cryotherapy treatment centers exist across the U.S.
So how, exactly, does cryotherapy work? Wearing socks, gloves, slippers, and little else, clients stand in cryotherapy chambers (also known as cryosaunas) for between 1.5 minutes and 4 minutes at a time. There are two different kinds of cryotherapy chambers: group and individual. In individual treatments, the client stands in a can-like chamber that is open at the top. The head remains above the can at room temperature. In group treatments, a group of clients sit in an enclosed sauna-like chamber. In this case, the client's whole body, head included, will be exposed to the freezing temperatures.
But what is it about extreme cold that's good for the body? Here's how Dr. Travis Utter, a physician and cryotherapy expert, explains it: "The extreme cold experienced within a cryosauna stimulates sensors on the skin, activating a response from the central nervous system," explains Dr. Travis Utter, a physician and cryotherapy expert. "Endorphins, which inhibit pain and elevate mood, are then released, while the strengthened blood circulation actually decreases inflammation, as toxins and metabolic waste are eliminated by a supply of oxygen and nutrient-enriched blood that stimulate cellular regeneration. This can lead to faster healing."
Various studies suggest that cryotherapy promotes healing and recovery for athletes. Other studies show that it relieves pain and inflammation in damaged muscles. It's also been shown to relieve pain for clients who suffer from rheumatoid diseases, which is what Dr. Yamaguchi originally intended for it to treat. Clients and cryotherapists alike claim that whole-body cryotherapy can also promote weight loss and help clients feel re-energized and relaxed.
The benefits may extend to mental health, too. Dr. Utter says this is because the freezing temperatures cause a release of endorphins, which can help people who are dealing with stress, depression, and anxiety. A 2014 study examined the effect of 10 whole-body cryotherapy sessions on the mental state of 55 test subjects. The study found that cryotherapy improved their mood and mental state, especially for those who had severe depression.
Another study found that patients experience improvement of mood, euphoria, relaxation, and consolation after cryotherapy treatments. And another study suggests that whole-body cryotherapy could possibly be a "short-term adjuvant treatment for mood and anxiety disorders."
While he believes cryotherapy can be very beneficial, physical therapist Liam Champion points out that cryotherapy is not without limitations. "This reduction in inflammation may lead to reduced perceptions of fatigue and muscle soreness and increased perceptions of recovery, which may benefit performance in the short-term," he says. "A growing body of evidence indicates that inflammation is a necessary process for tissue regeneration and, as such, regular use of cold water immersion may impair long-term muscular and vascular adaptations to exercise," he explains. Because of this, he argues that cryotherapy should be used sparingly.
In 2016, the FDA stated that no cryotherapy instruments are FDA-approved, so they recommend that potential clients consult a doctor before they try cryotherapy. The FDA argued that there isn't enough definitive evidence that whole-body cryotherapy can treat all the ailments it allegedly treats. While we wait for more studies to ascertain the benefits and risks of whole-body cryotherapy, many people like Heather O'Neill — desperate for relief from an ailment that's hindering their lives — are benefiting from this futuristic treatment.
Oxygen bars are places where people breathe 99% of pure oxygen by simply sitting down or lying on a sofa and then placing plastic tubes in their noses. These days, oxygen bars have become a common social substitute in the modern industry since it offers many benefits.
1. Increases productivity Pure oxygen inhalation through using an oxygen bar is known to enhance productivity in the place of work. This is because oxygen is responsible for providing the body with energy. The instant energy received from oxygen can help you finish your projects quickly and thus enhance your efficiency at work.
2. Improves memory Many people who have made use of oxygen bars claim that in increase in oxygen intake is going to enhance memory and concentration skills. In fact, increasing your oxygen intake stabilizes the nervous system and calms the mind. This enables a person to analyze a situation much better and react accordingly.
3. Alleviates muscle pain In general, muscles ache when there is an accumulation of lactic acid in the body. Getting additional oxygen from an oxygen bar could possibly assist you in flushing lactic acids away from muscles and therefore relieve muscle pain.
4. Enables quicker oxygen absorption Enhancing oxygen intake assists the blood in transporting oxygen and various other minerals and nutrients to tissues and organs. In addition, it also takes a very short time for the process of oxygenation to occur, usually four minutes. This means that you only need a ten minute session to get the numerous oxygen bar benefits.
5. Alleviates stress Oxygen bars provide a good place to relax and thus it helps in reducing stress. Increased oxygen also enhances the recovery time from strenuous exerciseand surgery. On the other hand, people with respiratory complications like emphysema or asthma are advised not to use oxygen bars as it can worsen their conditions.
1. Improves Heart Function A review by the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver found evidence supporting the use of infrared sauna treatments for normalizing blood pressure and cholesterol levels, treating congestive heart failure, and helping with chronic pain. That means an infrared sauna is a good way to help prevent high blood pressure and improve heart health.
Another study published in the Journal of The Japanese Circulation Society backs up that research, as the study found that infrared sauna treatment can help patients who have heart arrhythmias and suffer from chronic heart failure. Repeated treatments with a 60 degrees Celsius sauna improved functioning of the heart and lowered incidence of ventricular arrhythmias.
Patients were randomized into sauna-treated or non-treated groups, with the sauna group undergoing a two-week program of a daily 60 degrees C far-infrared-ray dry sauna treatment for 15 minutes at a time, followed by 30 minutes of bed rest. Heart rate variability normalized in the sauna group (including having plasma brain natriuretic peptide concentrations decrease) compared with the non-treated group. (3)
2. Helps Lower Chronic Pain, Including Pain from Arthritis Researchers from Saxion University of Applied Science in the Netherlands found that infrared sauna treatments can help reverse chronic pain with little to no side effects. They studied the effects of infrared saunas in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis over a four-week period, with a series of eight IR treatments. Sauna therapy was well-tolerated with no adverse effects, and they found that a significant percentage of patients experienced decreased symptoms of pain and stiffness.
Fatigue also decreased in both groups of patients compared to before beginning treatment, leading the researchers to conclude that infrared treatment has statistically significant short-term beneficial effects in patients experiencing pain without causing any worsening disease symptoms or unwanted side effects. (4)
3. Lowers Side Effects of Diabetes A 2010 study published in the Journal of Complimentary and Alternative Medicine found that far-infrared sauna use is associated with improved quality of life in people with type II diabetes, even when compared to other lifestyle interventions. People with diabetes often suffer from complications such as pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, congestive heart failure and other heart problems, but sauna treatment seems to improve pain threshold and contribute to overall well-being — naturally treating diabetes symptoms.
Patients were tested at the Fraser Lake Community Health Center in Canada, undergoing 20-minute treatments three times weekly over a period of three months. Patients completed a 36-item short-form health survey before and after the treatment period. The results found that a significant percentage experienced improved physical health, general health and social functioning following treatments, as well as lower stress and fatigue levels.
4. Improves Quality of Life and Overall Well-Being For many years, patients suffering from chronic pains have used thermal heating treatments to find relief. Studies have found that regular and repeated thermal therapies are promising methods for lowering chronic pain that can interfere with quality of life without the need for medications.
Researchers from Nishi Kyusyu University in Japan found that infrared sauna heat therapy might work even better to lift someone’s mood and well-being when coupled with other holistic treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and exercise rehabilitation.
Their 2005 study split 46 patients with chronic pain into two groups, one receiving multidisciplinary treatments without infrared heat therapy and the other receiving all forms of treatment (cognitive behavioral therapy, rehabilitation and exercise therapy, and repeated thermal therapy using far-infrared ray dry saunas). Therapy treatments were performed once a day for four weeks, and results were tracked immediately after treatment and then again two years after discharge.
According to the patients’ test scores, self-ratings for pain, depression and anger significantly decreased after treatment in both groups. However, pain and anger were significantly lower in the group also receiving infrared sauna therapy. Two years after treatment, 77 percent of the patients in the infrared sauna group felt well enough to return to work, compared to just 50 percent in the control group.

Thai massage may be the ultimate sports massage. By understanding the world's oldest medicine systems, we become better equipped to treat athletic conditions.
Thai massage, also called Thai-Yoga, is rooted in the 7,000-year-old medicine system of Ayurveda. Although Ayurveda is ancient, the U.S. is just discovering its therapeutic riches.
What is Thai massage? Thai massage is also called Thai-Yoga because it is rooted in yoga. Thai massage is like having yoga done to you.
Like massage, Thai massage is performed by a practitioner onto a recipient. The client passively receives a series of stretches and compressions. Unlike most massage styles, a highly-skilled therapist will also receive therapeutic effects by offering the treatment.
Like yoga, a session involves a series of dynamic stretches. Like stretches or postures in yoga (asanas), many muscles are stretched simultaneously.
And the stretches tend to be multi-planar. This means each stretch moves the muscles in more than just one direction. Multi-planar stretches prepare the muscle better for everyday activities than do stretches that are isolating or uni-directional.
The most notable effects of the treatment sequence include: * Stretching tight muscles * Loosening stiff joints, and * Improving energy circulation.
The treatment improves energy circulation by loosening muscles that commonly tighten and restrict the flow of blood, nerves, oxygen, and other vital energy. In many Eastern health practices, this focus is called clearing chakras. By clearing all of the body's major chakras, vital energy flow is restored throughout the body.
How is Thai massage different from Sports massage? Sports massage is a common style of massage used to train athletes and treat sports injuries. Most massage therapists receive special training or a distinct sports massage certification in order to practice it with athletes.
Sports massage is a combination of assisted stretching and massage techniques. The application depends on the phase of the athlete's training.
The benefits of assisted stretching are limited, however, because muscles are stretched in isolation, uni-directionally.
Thai massage is also typically applied in a gentle manner that enables the recipient to relax. When the body is relaxed, and stretches are received passively, the muscles can be stretched more deeply.
Using multi-planar, dynamic stretches, with a relaxing approach, is more beneficial than typical assisted stretching focused on muscles in isolation.
Clearing chakras is also more restorative than working on muscles individually or treating problematic areas separately from the rest of the body.
While most Americans consider massage to be holistic medicine, Thai massage is truly more holistic by nature than most other styles of massage, including sports massage
Each type of sauna comes with its own differences.
Heat One of the main differences between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the heat involved while inside the unit. Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 185 to 195 degrees F, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat. Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 120 to 150 degrees F. However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they are able to cause a more vigorous sweat at lower temperature, states Dr. Richard Beever in the July 2009 issue of "Canadian Family Physician."
Humidity When comparing an infrared sauna to a traditional steam sauna, it's important to look at humidity. A steam sauna is going to have a lower temperature than a traditional dry sauna, but it is also going to employ large amounts of heated steam, which creates a humid experience. Infrared saunas do not use steam and rely fully on the heat from the infrared heaters for overall effects.
Action A traditional dry sauna uses a stove to heat the air. As the temperature of the air increases around you, the temperature of your body increases as well due to absorption by heat convection. This causes your body to start the cooling process by transporting blood closer to the surface of the skin and opening pores through sweating. Infrared saunas also heat the surrounding air but to a lesser degree. Instead, infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit a specific wavelength of infrared light. Your skin absorbs this wavelength, causing your body's temperature to rise. This elicits the same effects as a traditional sauna with less overall heat needed.

Cardinal Mooney senior wins state gold due to cryotherapy Posted By Bradenton Magazine on Apr 12, 2017 SARASOTA, FL
If a 2nd place finish at the 2016 state weightlifting meet wasn’t devastating enough for Dillon O’Neill, what occurred on March 15th, was a close second in its own right. “So towards the beginning of weightlifting season I was bench pressing and I probably overworked it. My shoulder went a little bit and started hurting,” says Cardinal Mooney senior Dillon O’Neill.
10 days before the regional meet, O’Neill thought his dream was over. But then. “I heard about cryotherapy through cross fit which I was doing to perfect my form in the clean jerk and I gave it a try and it helped me and brought down the inflammation in my shoulder and helped me recovery faster. So instead of waiting three days to bench press again I could do it every other day,” says O’Neill.
After his first day he knew this was the best chance he had to get back in the weight room. “The next day he came in right away and was like, I want to do this. And, you know, he was like I need to do this every day. I’m trying to get to a next level. I’m trying to make sure I do it in a progression instead of trying to just jump at it. So I said let’s do it, let’s put you on a plan,” says Owner of Hyd8 Fernando Vega. That plan led him to lifting a combined 695 pounds with 405 on the bench press and 290 on the clean and jerk. Which, as you can imagine, is no easy task. “It definitely takes away the soreness because I wake up the next day and don’t feel any pain,” says O’Neill.
Fast forward a month after the injury and first cryotherapy treatment, O’Neill is a state champion weightlifter. Not only did he out lift his entire weight class by 25 pounds but he actually lifted 5 pounds less in the state meet than the regional. All thanks to a little research and help from a local business.
“It was great I put 4 years into the sport and I was finally able to come out on top,” says O’Neill. “Being part of his recovery that makes me and makes us feel great. You know we treat every patient, every client that walks through this door not as a client, but as a family member,” says Vega.

Looking at the whopping increase of yoga practitioners in India and the US, we now know how people are preferring yoga over gym or any other activity. Considering the sedentary and pressured lifestyles today, restorative yoga is your savior and how.
What is Restorative Yoga?
With the influx of so many yoga styles, each conveying their own blend of postures, meditation, relaxation and philosophy, restorative yoga is one such yogic exercise that leads its practitioner towards a more healing experience that can help usher them into the world of peace and quiet. Restorative yoga generally relies on the use of props including pillows, blocks and straps to support your body in a full, comfortable and long stretch. According to renowned yoga expert, Priyanka Devi Gupta, this age0old practice is especially beneficial in today’s day and age. “Restorative yoga is extremely beneficial for people having a hectic life and helps in slowing down the process. It helps you connect with your mind and body and also lets you focus on your breath.”
What are the Benefits of Restorative Yoga?
Here are some of the benefits that restorative yoga has to offer to all the yoga practitioners:
1. Helps you calm down
Restorative yoga offers an excellent opportunity to cut chords and disconnect with the outside world and let you travel to the world of nothingness and helps in calming you down. As you move along, it helps you to get in to deepened awareness and meditation. Moving through the poses slowly, you will start exploring your mind and body at a very steady tempo.
2. It lets you learn the art of acceptance
Restorative yoga does not have a forced pose; hence, it lets your body release itself according to ease. It lets you accept the kind of body you have and throw away all the preconceived notions about it. 3. It enhances flexibility
Although all the yoga poses make you a lot more flexible, however, practicing the restorative yoga makes the job easier. You generally explore what happens when your body releases all the tension.
4. It helps shed weight
Restorative yoga helps ion reducing cortisol levels that are also responsible for increased abdominal fat among other negative effects on our body.
5. It boosts your immune system
A regular restorative yoga practice actually helps improving the immune system. It is because the asanas (poses) nurture the body and induce relaxation response, while reducing the stress response, which further help in building a better immune system. 6. It heals sickness and soothes your nervous system
Restorative yoga does not include any active asana, rather it lets you and your body relax. The body, while in such pose, heals itself and cures the sickness. It also provides benefits including promotion of smooth blood circulation and tissue renewal.
Restorative yoga takes your body into a state that allows rejuvenation and relaxation. Go ahead and try these relaxing poses and say hello to a quieter mind.

Did you know that float therapy first became popular back in the 1950's as a form of sensory deprivation and what affects it has on the brain and mind?
Why not see for yourself how your mind can be cleared while you float? To put it simply, floatation allows the mind to be set completely free. When you are without stimulation or distraction, formulating new and innovative ideas suddenly becomes much easier. Many floatation users speak of "epiphanies" had within the tank. Breakthroughs regarding life in general as well as specific problems. The benefits to creativity are also well documented. In fact, floatation has been the basis for a variety of art-centric programs, studies and even books.
Have you tried our float therapy yet? Why would you want to? Check out these great benefits from a float session.
The density of the salt water puts the floater in an environment where approximately 80% of the gravity we usually feel is no longer affecting our body. We use a large portion of our mental and physical resources counteracting the force of gravity on a moment to moment basis. Relief of this effort leaves our body with a surplus of energy and processing power at its disposal. When left with this abundance, our body spends its efforts on resting, recuperating, and healing anything that needs attention. In addition to this, the gravity-reduced environment allows our body to decompress, especially throughout the joints and the spinal column.
Epsom salt is Magnesium Sulfate Heptahydrate (MgSO4·7H2O). It is most commonly mined from the earth. Although more research is needed, there is some evidence that Magnesium is absorbed into the body during an Epsom salt bath. This is notable considering the fact that the majority of Americans (an estimated 80%) are theorized to be deficient in Magnesium.
Floatation tanks might be the most relaxing environment we can put our bodies into. Stress relief comes almost instantly from floating. Benefits get stronger and last longer the more you float.
Time to Meditate
Floatation therapy has been referred to as the "Express route to the benefits of meditation.” Removing ALL external stimuli and eliminating the persistent distraction known as the body works wonders to quiet the mind and obtain the kind of deep calm meditation masters spend countless hours trying to achieve.
Enhanced Creativity and Problem Solving Ability
To put it simply, floatation allows the mind to be set completely free. When you are without stimulation or distraction, formulating new and innovative ideas suddenly becomes much easier.
