During a cryotherapy session, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures with the temperature at the surface of the skin reaching well below 0°C. In order to ensure the core temperature of the body is maintained, the blood flow increases dramatically resulting in a burn of 600 – 800 calories in about 3 minutes. The calorie burn also continues after the end of session as the body is actively getting back to its ambient temperature
Chemical compounds such as Adrenaline, Serotonin and Endorphins are secreted during cryotherapy that helps increase metabolism and the overall energy level. Cryotherapy coupled with regular diet and exercise can tremendously boost your metabolism rate and improve your weight loss. To provide a comparison, each 3-minute session is roughly the equivalent of a 30 mins rigorous exercise.
