Cryotherapy is the medical and health-improving course of treatment, based on short contact of skin
with cooled gas (-150 °C to -130 °C or -240 °F to -200 °F). Cryotherapy provides intensive stimulation
of immune and basic body systems, generates endorphin saturation in blood and blocks pain of any
Cryotherapy is used widely for treatment of some serious diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis,
asthma, psoriasis, eczema, various allergies, etc. A patient with a minimal amount of clothes put
into the cryogenic gas for 2-3 minutes. Cryotherapy treatments can run up to 25 days, with up to
four treatments daily, depending on the severity of the disease.
The combination of versatility and high therapeutic efficacy of Cryotherapy, it provides a quick introduction to all areas of medicine. The most obvious and attractive feature of Cryotherapy is the ability to quickly and permanently remove the pain of various origins and stiffness of the joints, but also accelerates the process of wound healing and post-surgical sutures. Pain relief comes in 5-10 minutes after exposure to cold and lasts for 6-8 hours.
Cooling conditions are such that Cryotherapy is used without any age and physiological limitations. Pre-training is not necessary, furthermore Cryotherapy administered even at elevated temperature and to young children. During the procedure, despite such a low temperature, the patient does not experience any discomfort. In addition, as the practice of application, once having felt the impact of the cold healing, patients are looking forward to the next session.
Back in 1971 a Japanese doctor Toshima Yamauchi discovered therapeutic effects of cold on sore joints. And today in his clinic on the island of Kyushu (Japan), due to effectiveness of Cryotherapy treatment, various problems are treated, such as rheumatoid arthritis, coxarthrosis, rheumatism, various arthrosis - arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis at 80% success rate. From 100% infirm, not moving the patients themselves have become a burden to their families, 80% out of the hospital are back on their feet. Toshima Yamauchi found out that in the context of Cryotherapy in the blood of patients the concentration of anti-rheumatic hormones has increased. That is, the body on its own, provides harmless medication for joints, which, unfortunately, pharmacologists were not able to create.
Following and very promising areas of application can be considered: general surgery (proctology and traumatology), gastroenterology, neuropathology and spine specialists, gynecologists and even plastic surgery. Directions are almost endless. There is unusually wide range of positive actions of Cryotherapy by the large number of scientific publications on this topic.
Sports medicine is not an exception. Attempts are being made to use the Cryotherapy as a safe
and physiological stimulator.Cryotherapy sessions before the competition can increase the chances
of winning by increasing the concentration of endorphins in the blood - this doping is not indicated,
however, in the prohibited list.
Cryo Sauna will work in your favor if you observe the following rules:
- If you decide to lose weight, do not eat within 2 hours after the procedure
- You need to wear as least as possible, and generally better without any clothes. The larger the area of exposure to the cold, the more pronounced effect
- Do not breathe vapor of liquid nitrogen
- Do not go out immediately after the procedure. It is better to rest approximatly 10 minutes in the room
The procedure is contra-indicated to you, if you have individual intolerance to cold, fever (high body temperature, exacerbation of acute respiratory disease, SARS).
Treatment action influences the whole body, and the organs that were not even subjected to cooling, but its intensity and duration is closely related with contact surface of body and cooling gas. Time of treatment is of great importance. For example for skin cooling lower than +2°C it is necessary not less than 90 sec time, so the treatment action should be 2-3 min. Specifically the intention of cryotherapeutical treatment is directed to the human's skin.
Besides other positive effects, Cryotherapy allows to lose weight and get rid of cellulitis
Cryo Sauna is a brand new equipment for health improving of the whole body. Cryo Sauna
corrects physiological processes, restores natural balance, stimulates metabolism and immune system.
Courses of treatment in Cryo Sauna are short (2-3 min) and generate fast positive reaction. The results
of Cryotherapy can be seen in 5-10 min after the session and last up to 6 hours.
Cryo Sauna "Krion" is the most reliable and secure device for Cryotherapy, in which human is immersed
in Cryogenic gas only up to his shoulders. Head is always stays above the cabin which allows breathing
fresh air. Cold gas is naturally heavier than the air and will "flow" down, avoiding human's breath air intake
area. In addition, space above the upper section of Cryo Sauna is vented. There is also a lifting device
(cabin floor) which allows procedure application to different height customers.
Basis of Cryo Sauna operation is that skin surface is cooled down below 0 °C (32 °F) temperature. For the outer layer of the skin this short-term hypothermia is absolutely safe. At this point "chilled" skin receptors send so powerful signals to the brain that these signals are triggering immune system "reset" and activation. In order to properly cool the skin temperature of the gas should not be higher than -140 °C (-220 °F), and the time of contact with the skin at least 2 minutes. It is very important that the area of contact between skin and gas should be as big as possible, i.e. the more body surface is immerses the better, as well as minimum clothing should be worn. The more skin receptors fall in sub-cooling zone, the greater and the longer the result are achieved.
Cryo Sauna consists of cabin with patient lifting device, a pump for pumping liquid nitrogen, Dewar vessel and storage of liquid nitrogen. The operation is simple: people are immersed for a short period of time up to their neck in the layer of Cryogenic gas (usually Nitrogen) that is cooled to a temperature below -130 °C (-200 °F). During the procedure, the patient's skin is cooled to -2 °C (28 °F). The reaction of the thermoregulatory system to skin's hypothermia provides physiotherapeutical result. The temperature in the cabin is maintained automatically in a range of -130 °C to -160 °C or -250 °F to -200 °F (almost constant).
During the actual procedure there are two phases: Preparatory and Effective.
The Preparatory phase of the procedure takes at least 120 sec and cools the skin from its normal state to a temperature of approximately 0 °C (32 °F). Physiotherapeutical effect of the procedure at this stage is very small.
During the second Effective Phase, as the skin temperature approaches the surface temperature of -2 °C to 0 °C (28 °F to 32 °F), the stimulating effect of the procedure increases. The duration of the second phase determines the outcome of physiotherapy treatments. Point to remember: procedures of less than 120 sec are ineffective. To achieve high therapeutic effect set the exposure time for at least 150 sec (during your second session).
Cryo Sauna is the most advanced, reliable, and secure equipment for Cryotherapy, where all a bove requirements of the procedure are strictly observed and followed. Cryo Sauna is designed for individual procedures on a localized pattern of patient contact with the coolant.
