In today’s modern world where breakthroughs in science and technology impact nearly every part of our daily lives the ice-pack age of cooling bodies down for health treatments has transformed from cold compresses and ice baths to state-of-the-art freezing therapies such as cryotherapy. Whether with a pack of frozen peas or a full-body immersion, the belief that cold can heal is nothing new but doctors have now begun testing treatments such as ‘RICE’ – rest, ice, compression and elevation, to deal with pain and swelling because of the beneficial effects it has on chronic inflammatory joint and spine disease. Scientific studies are also revealing that cooling muscles can have a beneficial effect on some types of depression and bring relief to sleep disorders, asthma, inflammation and psoriasis. The jury is still out on how effective freezing temperatures are on those afflictions but one thing that’s not in dispute is that lower temperatures are effective at dampening pain. One possible explanation for the analgesic effect is that the coldness limits blood flow by constricting arteries and veins so it reduces the speed at which nerves fire. Cryotherapy uses a method of localized freezing temperatures to deaden an irritated nerve. The most effective method to administer the treatment is to immerse the whole body in a controlled chamber. The treatment is now proving popular in the world’s top spas and healing centers, with many of them offering whole body cryotherapy chambers. Most of the high-end facilities have opted for chambers manufactured by a company called ICE Lab.
