New Yorkers Need Cryotherapy


No doubt, those of us who live and work in the five boroughs are stressed out. This continuous stress can wreak havoc on our bodies and if we don’t deal with it, it can cause us to become physically ill.

Health information website explains: “In your brain, the hypothalamus gets the ball rolling, telling your adrenal glands to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones rev up your heartbeat and send blood rushing to the areas that need it most in an emergency, such as your muscles, heart, and other important organs.

When the perceived fear is gone, the hypothalamus should tell all systems to go back to normal. If the Central Nervous System fails to return to normal, or if the stressor doesn’t go away, the response will continue.”

The problem for many of us is it’s difficult to get rid of stress in New York City and make the response to stressors go away. Traffic, subway delays, deadlines and the office rat race have many New Yorkers in a constant constricted state.

Cryotherapy can actually combat the negative effects of working in New York City. We’re hunched over at our desks and not getting up enough to take breaks to counter our unnatural posture. We are constantly on the go and taking time enjoy a meal slowly with lingering conversation seems like a rare occasion.

A reporter for Psychology Today reported on her own use of cryotherapy to help her combat depression: “My one-person cryotherapy experiment has been sort of shockingly effective. I told you I number rate my days, right? Well, the past two months have been filled with 8’s (very high on the Anna David scale) and my sleep has been solid. The bumps in the road I mentioned—break-up, cat, hormones—have actually felt just like bumps in the road and not the catastrophic earthquakes similar events have felt like at other times in my life.”
