Float Sense is considering providing cryotherapy at our Centre! Since this is fairly new to Canadian soil, here are some information points on the topic:
Cryotherapy was developed in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis, they refined what the Swedish and European cultures had been able to practice for years because of their climates. Also, many European countries have it covered by medical insurance. In the past 30 years, there has not been any adverse effects report with the use of the walk-in and multipurpose chambers. You wear protective garments and the 2-3 minute session is very tolerable other than getting the “pins and needles” sensation but it dissipates right away.
“I’ve been doing cryotherapy every day for 2 weeks straight. 250 degrees below zero. The benefits are incredible. Aches and pains dissolve and you feel like you can jump over the moon.” –Joe Rogan | Podcast Host
