3 Therapeutic Treatments to Reduce Stress
Stress can affect every part of your life. It effects your emotional and mental well-being and can physically exhaust you. Stress can exacerbate pain, make it difficult to focus, and difficult to relax and sleep at night. CRYO850, we offer a variety of therapeutic treatments to help reduce and manage stress. From red light therapy to massages, you’re bound to find something that works for you. Here are a few therapeutic treatments to reduce stress:
Whole Body Cryotherapy
Stress is often exacerbated by pain and sometimes exacerbates pain in turn. It can be a vicious cycle. When you are in pain, your patience is shortened to handle other issues. When you are stressed, your body is tense and the site of pain is more likely to be inflamed. Whole body cryotherapy can potentially help with both issues. Cryotherapy uses extreme cold temperatures to elicit a vasoconstriction/vasodilation response to increase blood flow to the site of pain and reduce inflammation and pain symptoms. It also creates positive hormone responses, such as endorphins, which can help to give you the energy boost and stress reduction that you need.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy uses red and near infrared light to boost blood flow, cell regeneration, and oxygen throughout the body. All of the benefits of the sun without harmful UV rays. Red light therapy is often used to reduce pain and inflammation, but it has also been shown to improve patients’ mood and cognitive function, as well as reduce stress. Red light therapy has been used to treat major depressive disorders and provides wavelengths needed to combat seasonal affective disorder during the time of year when the sun is out the least.
Sometimes when you are stressed, you want nothing more than a spa day to relax your body. At CRYO850, we offer the latest sauna technology. Rather than heating the air in the room, infrared saunas use infrared light to heat your body before heating the room. This process serves to detox your body of harmful overload such as lead and mercury. In the same way short bursts of cold can help to energize your body, heat therapy can relax the muscles and reduce pain by increasing blood circulation. It eases muscle soreness and relaxes the mind so that you can go about your day without a buildup of stress.
Taking time to decompress is imperative to keep stress from building and weighing you down. Self-care treatments are important to give yourself time to take a break, clear your head and relax your mind. Need help managing your stress? CRYO850 is happy to assist.
