Chill Cryotherapy Brings Alternative Healing Technique to Pensacola

May 31, 2016 02:31PM

Cryotherapy, popular with pro athletes wanting to speed up physical recovery, is now available in Pensacola. Chill Cryotherapy offers whole-body exposure to subzero temperatures to promote the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response, release endorphins, reduce pain and promote overall health. “Cryotherapy is not a medical procedure, but a noninvasive alternative for individuals seeking faster recovery and improved health,” says owner Tara Santosuosso.

Famous fans of cryotherapy reportedly include NBA stars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Cryochamber featured at Chill Cryotherapy, designed and built in the United States by Impact Cryotherapy, is the same model used by pro sports franchises including the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins and Boston Red Sox, as well as NCAA institutions including the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.

The process involves stripping to the underwear or a bathing suit, putting on protective socks, gloves and shoes, and spending two to three minutes in the Cryochamber to quickly reduce body temperature. After the session, Santosuosso says, enriched blood is released back to skin surface tissues, muscle tissues and joint spaces that have been flushed of toxins. And the benefits of cryotherapy aren’t just physical, she adds. “Along with reducing recovery time and muscle soreness, easing persistent pain and inflammation and increasing metabolism and weight loss, cryotherapy also can relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.” 

Chill Cryotherapy is located at 401 N. Davis Hwy., Pensacola. For more information, visit ChillPensacola.com or call 850-972-8488.
