STAR Blog #3 – The Cool Benefits of Cryotherapy

This week we’re all about cryogenics at STAR Australia.

If you haven’t tried our state-of-the-art cryogenics chamber and received all the benefits that go along with it. Then read on!

Studies have shown that exposing the body to subzero temperatures for several minutes provides advantageous health benefits that deliver substantial results and with this thought in mind, Cryotherapy was evolved. Originally developed by a Japanese doctor to treat patients with arthritis, cryotherapy exposure causes blood to leave the extremities and move into the core, where it is cleaned, oxygenated, and nutrient enriched.

The STAR Australia cryogenics provides whole-body cryotherapy that involves standing in our enclosed chamber, whilst the cold air is surrounding your body and working its magic. It induces several physiological changes, including faster blood flow, reduction of inflammation, less pain, as well as, decreasing recovery time between workouts. A further effective sign of cryotherapy is the releasement of endorphins for an energy boost and that’s just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended). Other perks include improved sleep, increased collagen production, and increased calorie burn (in the 400 to 800 range) that can last up to six hours post freeze.

Physical therapists suggest continuous treatment in a cryogenic chamber can enable a speedy adjustment and recovery. Our cryogenic chamber sessions are available in 30 minute timeframes with trained professionals that prioritise your wellbeing.
