Learn to Love the Cold
Elite Wellness offers one of the most innovative and holistic wellness solution that enable the human body to recover and rejuvenate itself naturally. When experiencing whole body cryotherapy, you expose your body to extremely low temperatures that trigger the body’s most powerful mechanisms of self-protection, self-recover and self-rejuvenation.
The benefits of regularly doing cryotherapy can help individuals recover from acute injuries, sprains, and strains allowing them to return to their sports quicker than if they used traditional ice therapy. Cryotherapy has been known to improve mobility by reducing swelling in joints, improve sleep quality, prevent injuries, reduce pain, boost metabolism and expedite healing time after surgery.
Cryotherapy is great for all but ideal for post-surgery patients, people who live active lifestyles, individuals who may have auto-immune diseases, or athletes recovering from injury. We don’t recommend cryotherapy for expectant mothers, patients undergoing chemotherapy, individuals with high blood pressure and people that generally can’t stand cold temperatures. We pride ourselves in being the leader in offering whole body cryotherapy in Ashburn, Virginia and the rest of the DC/MD/VA area.
What to Expect
When you come in for your appointment you will change into whatever you like for your treatment while a specialist warms up the machine and adjust it for each individual’s height. For safety reasons we require all individuals wear socks, gloves and undergarments into the machine. We will provide slippers and gloves and robes for you to wear. Once you step into the machine, you can remove the robe and put on your gloves.
The sessions usually last two and half minutes and can reach -180 Fahrenheit to -245 Fahrenheit. While the machine is running, we advise you to raise your chin and avoid breathing in the nitrogen gas. As time passes, you should slowly rotate or slightly move within the machine as it gets colder. If you feel uncomfortable or too cold, we can immediately stop the machine if needed. Once your time is up, we will hand back your robe and carefully step out of the machine.
While you are here, you should try one of our other pain management therapies like vibration massage and our compression sleeves. We offer many different packages to suit your needs of recovery. Call us or book online to get started.
