fit3The physics behind using Cryotherapy for weight management are brilliant. Its created on the basics of Newtons Law of removing your body’s natural heat by cooling it. The natural skin temperature of the body is 90.5°F, but cooling it down to 30°-32°F through the use of nitrogen there is a subsequent rebound effect of your bodies thermostat to raise the skin temperature back to 90.5°. During the rebound effect your body is trying to compensate by raising your skin temperature to 95°F, for a minute or so, which tightens the skin but also boosts your metabolism and uses a large amount of energy. This entire process is the reason why the caloric expenditure happens.
