ARE ICE BATHS SIMILAR TO CRYOTHERAPY?

Compared to an ice bath, whole-body cryotherapy is significantly different.

In cryotherapy, dry cold air is utilised in place of cold water, triggering cold sensors on the skin’s surface rather than the deeply penetrating cold of an ice bath, prompting the body to react.

In a conventional ice bath, the cold water forces the body to overexert itself to keep the skin’s surface from freezing by warming the blood in its core for delivery to dilated arteries in outer tissue.

The key advantage of cryotherapy is that it “tricks” the body into using superior healing processes without the piercing cold, whereas in an ice bath your body genuinely feels like it is freezing.

The end result is a more comfortable healing process because you never spend more than three minutes with your body exposed to air during a complete body cryotherapy treatment.
