What is Cryo?
Cryo uses gasified nitrogen to activate the body’s powerfully healing “cold-shock response.” During the session, blood will rush to the core and revs up metabolism to create heat. After, blood returns to the extremities more oxygenated, and carrying newly released neurotransmitters that can dramatically lower inflammation, increase collagen levels, boost mood, accelerate recovery, and increase focus...among many other benefits.

Dr. Rhonda Patrick has a Ph.D in biomedical science and is a renowned expert on nutritional health, brain & aging. Below, you can find her 20-page report that explains how cold shock is a type of hormesis, which is a description of a type of stress that, in the right doses, is enough to shock the body and kick off adaptive processes and response mechanisms that are hardwired into our genes, and, once on, are able to create a resilience that actually exceeds what was needed to counter the initial stimuli. Rhonda discusses how cold exposure increases norepinephrine up to 5-fold in the brain and what the temperature and duration needed to do this are, how norepinephrine has an effect on mood, vigilance, focus, and attention, how cold exposure increases cold shock proteins including one in the brain that repairs damaged synapses and in muscle prevents atrophy, how cold-induced norepinephrine lowers inflammation and pain by decreasing the levels of 3 inflammatory mediators, how chronic cold shock may increase immune cell numbers and particularly a type of immune cell that kills cancer cells, how cold exposure increases metabolic rate, the number of mitochondria, and the burning of fat, what the effects of different cold exposure temperatures and timing are on athletic performance, recovery time, and muscle mass
