Cryotherapy is an innovative and holistic wellness solution that enables the human body to recover and rejuvenate itself naturally. During cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures ranging from -180 ֯ Fahrenheit to -245 ֯ Fahrenheit (for 2.5 minutes to be exact) to trigger the body’s most powerful mechanisms of self-protection, self-recovery and self-rejuvenation. Elite Wellness is leader of cryotherapy in Ashburn, Virginia and the rest of the DC/MD/VA area.

Exposure to extremely cold temperatures stimulates thermoreceptors in the skin, activating a central nervous system (CNS) response. This results in your brain and CNS drawing blood from the periphery to the body’s core in order to circulate the blood through its vital organs. During this process, the blood is enriched with red blood cells, oxygen and other essential nutrients and enzymes, while toxins and metabolic waste are broken down and removed. Once the cryotherapy session is complete, the enriched blood flows back to the body’s periphery where it promotes reduced inflammation, healing and recovery and boosts energy levels, mood and metabolic rates.

Elite Wellness has been using cryotherapy to help athletes recovery from acute injuries, sprains, and strains allowing them to return to their sports quicker than if they used traditional ice therapy. Cryotherapy has been used in clients with autoimmune diseases and chronic pain issues. Cryotherapy has been known to improve mobility by reducing swelling in joints, improve sleep quality, drastically reduce recovery time needed between workouts, prevent injuries, reduce pain, boost metabolism and expedite healing time after surgery.
