Award-winning Spa Espace Chenot at L’Albereta Introduces Cryotherapy Treatments
Award-winning Spa Espace Chenot at L’Albereta in Franciacorta is now offering cryotherapy. The unique method alleviates pain and promotes a general state of wellbeing by exposing the body to extremely low temperatures for a short and very specific amount of time. Whole body cryotherapy helps to reduce muscular pain, support the immune system, improve the mood and support overall wellness.
Defined as body cooling for therapeutic purposes, cold treatments in medicine date as far back as the time of Hippocrates. The cryotherapy treatment at L’Albereta involves exposing the whole body, including the head, to very low temperatures reaching -110oC. Whole body cryotherapy is performed in special chambers with separate cabins of -10oC which is first entered for 30 seconds, -60oC for up to one minute and finally -110oC for up to three minutes.
Lifelong conditions such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis, bronchial asthma, fibromyalgia amongst many others have been proven to be significantly improved following the whole body cryotherapy approach, whilst people who have experienced the treatment note an increase in general mood and happiness immediately following the treatment which is related to a release in endorphins, as well as glowing and toned skin.
