Cryosauna is one of the physiotherapy procedures. During it, the patient is exposed to ultra-low temperature refrigerated gas. Usually it is liquid nitrogen (or nitrogen in combination with oxygen) with a temperature of minus 130-140 ° C.
How is cryotherapy performed
In the process of cryotherapy, only the surface layers of the skin are exposed. The cooling process is carried out for a minimum amount of time: for fifteen seconds, the gas temperature in the cryosauna booth around the body drops to minus 130-140 ° C and for one to three minutes it remains at a given level. During cryotherapy, the patient is under the supervision of a nurse. After the correct procedure, the body should acquire a red tint, and a blush should appear on the face. Ten minutes later, a pleasant warmth spreads through the body. If there are no such sensations, therefore, there are defects in the operation of the cryosauna booth, and there will be no benefit from subsequent procedures. Cryosauna is a very pleasant experience, especially in the summer heat. To achieve a lasting result, you need to go through ten to fifteen procedures. Cryotherapy is performed every other day.
For the procedure, you need to consult a doctor, make a cardiogram and perform blood and urine tests. Then the doctor will prescribe the required number of cryotherapy procedures and determine their duration.
