The skin senses the extreme cold during a 3 minute whole body cryotherapy session and signals the brain to go into “fight or flight” mode. The body is not in any real danger as it is only the skin that is being cooled. The brain responds to this perceived threat by triggering the following responses:
The combined impact of increased metabolism and high calorie burn can lead to weight loss. Repeated, consistent cryotherapy sessions increases the metabolism in the long term, resulting in more passive calories burned and continued weight loss or maintenance.
Cryotherapy tricks the body into “fight or flight mode”, triggering the release of epinephrine, endorphins and anti-inflammatory proteins. The body is not actually in hypothermia—but the brain thinks that it is. Blood rushes to the core, increasing metabolism and energy.
