Is Cryotherapy the Same as Cold Therapy?

Sculptology built its brand on the science of CoolSculpting, and we’re proud to reign as California’s number-one CoolSculpting provider. So, we know a thing or two about the amazing effects of freezing temperatures on the human body. We are now excited to be able to offer cryotherapy to the men and women of the Bay Area, and a common question we get from curious Northern Californians who come to see us is: Is Cryotherapy the Same as Cold Therapy?

Is Cryotherapy the Same as Cold Therapy?

So, is cryotherapy the same as cold therapy?  Yes.. and no. Let us break it down for you.

Cryotherapy is a form of cold therapy that exposes the body to sub-zero temperatures and treats pain and inflammation, amongst other benefits. Ice packs, cold water immersion, or a cryotherapy chamber can be done. At Sculptology, we have a state-of-the-art electric cryotherapy chamber. During a typical cryotherapy session, you will stand in a room cooled to -200 to -300 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three minutes. The cold temperatures cause your body to go into survival mode, causing your blood vessels to constrict and your blood to circulate more quickly. Our advanced system uses a vortex cooling method that evenly reduces body temperature with controlled and precise cooling that allows oxygenated air emersion. Our luxury device eliminates the need for hazardous refrigerants such as liquid nitrogen while allowing whole-body immersion (including head, neck, face, and arms), essential for achieving a uniform drop in skin temperature and stimulating the brain’s reaction to cooling the skin.mecotech cryo

The increased circulation helps to reduce inflammation, pain, and muscle soreness. Cryotherapy often treats conditions like arthritis, psoriasis, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and muscle pain. Still, it can boost your metabolic rate, improve sleep, stimulate collagen production, strengthen your immune system, and release endorphins to improve your mood. Studies have also shown that it can help improve skin tone and cellulite appearance. There are truly so many benefits to cryotherapy at Sculptology.

Now.. what is cold therapy? Well, it’s essentially cryotherapy, but on a much smaller scale. Cold therapy is a general term that covers any treatment that uses below-body temperature to relieve pain. This can include ice packs, coolant sprays, gel packs, ice baths, or even bags of frozen vegetables. Cold therapy treatments usually last between 15-20 minutes, using cold temperatures to relieve pain and swelling or provide relief for conditions such as migraines, tension headaches, sore muscles, and arthritis.

So, what’s the verdict? Is cryotherapy the same as cold therapy? While they are similar in that they both use cold temperatures to relieve pain, they are not precisely the same. Which one is right for you? If you want to enjoy countless benefits to impact your health and well-being positively, cryotherapy may be the way to go.
