Are you frustrated with trying to lose weight? You’ve stuck to your healthy eating plan and you exercise regularly but you’re not achieving results? We may have a solution for you to test out on your own body which may help to support your weight loss goals. Check out CRYO’s state of the art Whole Body Cryotherapy Clinic that’s just opened in Sydney’s Edgecliff.
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is the general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. It’s not new, in fact
Whole body Cryotherapy was developed in Japan by Professor Toshiro Yamaguchi in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Since then there has been much research into the other health benefits which can include weight loss.
With whole body Cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures for up to 3 minutes. During this time, the average skin temperature drops to about 10°c whilst the core body temperature remains unchanged. Once you are in the Cryosauna (your head and neck area are not covered by the chamber and so are exposed to room air above the device), a fine nitrogen mist is then sprayed onto your body in order to lower the temperature. You are never left alone. A trained Medical Grade Therapist stays with you throughout your treatment and you can leave the chamber at any time you wish during the treatment.
How Many Calories Does Cryotherapy Burn?
A cryotherapy weight loss program can help by increasing your metabolic rate which, combined with regular exercise and healthy eating can be the best way to lose fat. After your CRYO treatment, your brain signals to the rest of your body to pump blood to your core to increase your body heat and therefore your metabolic rate. Then, the enriched blood rushes back out and through your body, which can boost immunity, cell renewal, and provide natural pain relief. Your body is therefore using a considerable amount of energy to heat back up again and this is how CRYO’s whole body therapy, as a supplement to your healthy eating and exercise plan, may assist you to achieve your weight loss goals.
Following regular, consistent whole body CRYO sessions, overseas studies have shown you can burn about 2000−3300 Kilojoules (kJ). That’s around 500 – 800 calories. So, a 3 minute CRYO session could be the equivalent of a 45 minute run. In order to achieve weight loss, you may need to burn an extra 500 calories per day. Cryo sessions may have you feeling amazingly energised as the cold temperatures trigger a rush of “good feeling” endorphins that can boost mood.
