what to expect:
The cryosauna looks like a stand-up tanning booth. You undress, put on a towel/robe, gloves, and socks before stepping inside. The cryo-operator will have you close the door and remove the robe while placing your hands at the top. A liquid nitrogen tank attached to the machine pumps the cold air in. Treatments last for 1.5 to 3 minutes.
How it works:
When we subject our bodies to ice cold temperatures, our bodies go into a fight-or-flight response that is meant to keep us from freezing . As the cryosauna exposes the skin to super-cold temperatures, our bodies go into “I am freezing, must survive” mode and the blood rushes to our core to keep our organs going. There, it is enriched with oxygen and nutrients as our body works in super-survival mode. As soon as we step out into the warm air, the oxygenated blood rushes back out, flooding the peripheral tissues and flushing out toxins.
How this helps the body, skin, and muscles:
The brief “freeze” activates collagen in the skin similar to laser treatments, improving skin elasticity and tone and reducing cellulite.The constriction of blood vessels followed by the post-cryosauna flushing also flushes out toxins and helps with conditions like psoriasis and rosacea. The procedure also boosts endorphins and speeds up metabolism, pushing the body to burn 500 to 800 calories in the few hours after the procedure (and more over time with regular sessions). The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect also helps with joint disorders and muscle soreness. Overall, immunity is boosted.
Why it’s better than an ice bath:
Ice baths can be painful, and even after 30 minutes or so submerged the skin temperature doesn’t go below about 41 degrees or so. And by that time, the muscles are literally frozen and pretty immobile. For athletes, this means downtime they can’t afford. With cryosauna treatments, the skin is exposed to dry cold of minus 220 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as you step out of the cryosauna, blood rushes back out from your core and you feel a rush of endorphins and energy – making for a quick and high-octane return to physical activity.
FYZICAL Vegas is a place for people to get well. We help people living with musculoskeletal problems, balance / dizziness issues, hearing loss and so much more! If any of these problems are limiting you from being active and enjoying your life, then it’s time to GET FYZICAL!
In 2013 FYZICAL’s national company was just getting started and discovered the nation’s most advanced balance and dizziness clinics here in Las Vegas. These sites became the flagship balance centers for the national brand and became the model for hundreds of new FYZICAL locations around the country. Key features like the Safety Overhead Support (S.O.S) rail system were designed here in Vegas to allow patients a safe place to regain their balance without fear of falling. Advanced technology like the Epley Omniax Chair and the NeuroCom Posturography allow for highly accurate diagnosis and treatment of complex vestibular (inner ear) balance disorders. In-house audiology services provide convenient, comprehensive care for those with symptoms of dizziness and hearing loss. At FYZICAL, our Audiology and Therapy team strive to assess each patient’s individual needs to build effective solutions and lifelong relationships.
In 2015 Scott Pensivy, founder of S.P.O.R.T.S., began a unique partnership to bring world-class sports and orthopedic care into the FYZICAL network. SPORTS garnished worldwide recognition as physical therapists treating some of the biggest names in athletics and show business. Their founding principle, “The patient’s interest, is the only interest” defined the practice and set the standard for care of the whole person in the Las Vegas valley. Every person that walks through the door receives the same VIP level service as a celebrity. “Fyzical SPORTS” as they became, brought together multiple health disciplines including Pilates, massage, dietary nutrition, and fitness to become a comprehensive health center. We are excited to share the joint partnership of these two groups as one unied company bringing THE BEST in Orthopedic, Balance/Dizziness, Hearing, and health and fitness to Las Vegas!
