The Cryochamber uses nitrogen gas to lower your skin temperature to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a completely non-toxic natural gas that actually makes up 78% of the air that we breathe in.This causes your body to go into a 'fight or flight' mode, which sends the blood from your peripherals to your core. Once sent to the core, the blood becomes hyperoxygenated and enriched with nutrients and enzymes. After your 2-3 minute session, you are then re-exposed to normal temperatures which causes the body to vasodilate and send that fresh new enriched blood back out to the body. The new and improved blood now has the ability to help your body recover better and quicker.
NormaTec is a device that helps increase blood flow to specific areas in the body compressing and massaging. This helps in recovery from things such as sports injuries, lymphedema, varicose veins and other circulatory conditions. NormaTec is used for Pre/Post Workout, Injury Recovery, Post Surgery Rehab, Swelling and Inflammation. Sessions are either 30 minutes or 1 hour. They can be used as frequently as desired and works best when paired with Cryotherapy. For more info visit : http://www.normatecrecovery.com/science.shtml
We use the MarcPro device to increase mucluar recovery through electric muscle stimulation. The basis for post exercise recovery is the normalization of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste. The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely nonfatiguing muscle contractions that aid in muscle recovery.
The process begins with the activation of Nitric Oxide (NO), which dilates blood vessels and leads to increased flow delivering more oxygenated blood and nutrients to the area. The lymphatic and venous systems also require and benefit from localized muscle activity. Because of this, using electric muscle stimulation after physical activity helps move the related waste and deoxygenated blood away from the fatigued area(s). This exchange of nourishment and waste, without stress or fatigue, accelerates the recovery of the muscle.
