Everyone knows the cold can be bracing and even invigorating! But did you know that targeted, whole-body cold may also be able to provide physiological benefits?

Indeed, cryotherapy is a targeted therapeutic technique that has proven scientific benefits. If you’ve ever iced a sore muscle or two after an intense workout session at the gym, you have direct experience with cryotherapy.

But New Yorkers, constantly on their feet and rushing from place to place, may also benefit from cryotherapy due to its therapeutic effects, revitalizing nature, and its potential to recharge your body from zero to one hundred.

Not sure if cryotherapy is right for you? Next Health’s NYC location offers an intense, one-of-a-kind cryotherapy experience; let’s break down what you can expect if you step in for a chill.


How Cryotherapy Works


Cryotherapy is a proven therapeutic method that has been used for thousands of years, either with ice baths or in natural cold water pools. Modern technology allows us to use advanced cooling methods to induce the same biochemical reactions and beneficial effects.

At Next Health NYC, you’ll find a cryotherapy treatment that doesn’t use liquid nitrogen (unlike most other cryotherapy providers). But our treatment is just as effective. Our whole body cryotherapy chamber only requires three minutes in order to elevate your physical and mental health, and you can even enjoy cryotherapy with a partner.

In a nutshell, by rapidly cooling down bodily tissues, cryotherapy induces physiological responses such as releasing endorphins, boosting your mood, and reinvigorating the mind. It also helps soothe sore muscles, joint tissue, and much more, chilling pain away like the best ice pack.

New York City is a vibrant city, but it comes with its challenges; cryotherapy might just be the revitalizing boost you need to master the Big Apple and keep following your dreams.


The Benefits of Cryotherapy


Cryotherapy has several scientifically backed benefits, including:

  • Constricting blood vessels, which causes blood to move more toward your vital organs. This may induce positive changes to your immune system by improving white blood cell count.
  • Boosting the circulatory system.
  • Causing the endocrine system to produce endorphins: feel-good hormones that may reduce stress and anxiety and help you feel better across the board.
  • It increases your immune system’s responsiveness and durability. In the era of COVID-19, this is more important than ever!
  • Supports firmer, more supple-looking skin.
  • Improved cellular regeneration as well as relief from joint and muscle soreness after an intense workout.

There’s a reason that many athletes perform their cryotherapy treatments after an intense game or workout session. But you don’t need to draw yourself an ice bath – Next Health NYC offers the best whole body cryotherapy experience in the city.
