In the business of everyday life, people tend to neglect what their bodies are trying to tell them. Symptoms can be masked with prescriptions, over-the-counter medications or fancy products that claim to be an answer to a prayer. The human body goes through various degrees of fatigue, illness and trauma. These things all cause aches and pains that can be related to sudden or chronic conditions. Many people are trending toward non-traditional forms of relief to help increase energy and alertness, reduce inflammation, reduce chronic pain, treat arthritis, recover from muscle pain after a tough workout, improve sleep, rejuvenate the face or to simply restore the mind and body by tapping into the body’s systems to begin a natural healing process.
Professional athletes have been using ice baths as a way to reduce inflammation in joints, ligaments and muscles for years. This type of therapy has become more popular with the general public, and thanks to advances in technology, the idea of cryotherapy was born.
