Life is busy and full and sometimes life can be tough, but when we are not at our best- physically or mentally, the things with which we choose to fill our lives are much harder than they need to be! At CryoStretch Roswell, we aim to help our clients get back to the full and busy, wonderful things that fill their lives and give them joy!
Many people have casually strolled through our front doors with looks of wonder on their faces and inquisition in their voices. They were perhaps walking or driving by our storefront or heard of us from a friend of a friend who was sharing their experience. Is it not uncommon for us to hear questions or comments like, “What is cryotherapy?” and “Does it really work?” or “Wow, you have so much to offer here.” While we would love for you to come check us out so we can meet in person, here are some answers to these common questions and more!
What is Cryotherapy and why is it so beneficial?
At CryoStretch Roswell, we offer an electric powered cryotherapy whole body chamber.
Much like putting ice on an injury or bruise to help reduce swelling or pain in that specific area, whole body cryotherapy works to treat inflammation, but on a systemic scale. The sudden exposure to the extreme cold causes a shunting of the blood in your extremities to your core to protect your vital organs. As a result of the rewarming process, where the stagnant blood once was, there is restoration of blood flow, now full of white blood cells which are your body’s protective, healing cells.
In addition to the benefits of decreased inflammation and increased protection from infections, cryotherapy also has helpful mental benefits. The exposure to the extreme cold causes the release of adrenaline, dopamine and endorphins thus improving mental clarity, and even decreased symptoms of anxiety, depression, and compulsion. We assure you, it’s cold in there but much more tolerable than a cold shower or ice bath!
What other services do you offer?
We have five recovery services that we offer, along with several Cryoskin therapies such as facials, slimming and toning. Beyond whole body cryotherapy, we have an infrared sauna, localized cryotherapy, stretching, and NormaTec compression therapy.
Benefits of the infrared sauna are pretty amazing as well and are often appreciated by our clients after they get out of the cryotherapy chamber. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air in the sauna, infrared saunas internally heat your body. Some of the many benefits include, improved sleep, better relaxation, improvement in joint and muscle pain, improved circulation, weight loss and better circulation.
Sometimes our clients want the benefit of cryotherapy without getting into our chamber. In that case, we offer local cryotherapy, where a targeted stream of nitrogen based cold vapors cool the tissue in a specified area, acting much like an ice pack, but better!
Stretching is one of those activities that many people simply don’t take the time to do or do it effectively. Our stretching team is specially trained and uses an assisted stretching routine to offer our clients increased flexibility and protection from injury. We have many clients who have made a stretch visit part of their daily activity because they have greatly benefited from increased mobility as a result of a stretch.
NormaTec, otherwise known as compression therapy, not only feels amazing, but offers impressive recovery benefits. We have thigh high boots that provide compression of your entire leg, hip sleeves for compression of your upper thighs and hips, or arm sleeves for your shoulders and arms. The compression sleeves help your muscles recover more quickly after a workout, often preventing the soreness and tightness that many athletes experience after a workout. The action of the compression sleeves helps improve blood, moves lactic acid out of the muscle, and massages your sore muscles.
Who are your typical clients?
This is actually a tricky question to answer because we see so many different clients in many different seasons of life. From young elementary school age athletes, middle and high school athletes, to collegiate level athletes. We have adults who spend their free time on the tennis courts, golf courses, and hockey rinks, to older adults who come to see us to help restore their flexibility and overall well being. We truly have something for everyone!
So, we invite you to come and check us out to help you get back on the path of your full and wonderful life! Mention Longevity to receive 30% off any regularly priced individual service or Package.
