Soothing and stimulating therapy due to extreme cold
Whole body cold therapy has established itself over the last few years as a highly effective, passive, short-term physical therapy. The "icelab" consists of three chambers. In the first chamber it is minus 10, in the second minus 60 and in the third minus 110 degrees cold. In swimwear, with shoes, gloves, ear and mouth protection, you will cycle through the three chambers one after the other. After two shorter visits to the first two chambers to prepare you for the extreme cold, stay in the minus 110 degree cold room for up to three minutes.
Due to the cold, the heart pumps more blood per heartbeat through the body, and the sensation of pain is blocked for a short duration. This stimulates muscle circulation and stimulates muscle metabolism. Cryotherapy is successfully used as a pain therapy in rheumatology, increases the training efficiency of competitive athletes and shortens the recovery phase of the muscles after training.
