CRYOTHERAPY SCIENCE

Reduces inflammation, due to:

The increase in norepinephrine, which has been found to:

  • Decrease a very potent molecule (tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha)) which has been implicated in almost every human disease ranging from type 2 diabetes to inflammatory bowel disease to cancer.
  • Decrease other nasty chemicals such as macrophage inflammatory protein1α (MIP1α), which is produced by immune cells and may play a role in rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Alleviate pain symptoms associated with illnesses and injuries.

It is important to note, that inflammation is a key driver of the aging process which is associated with most age related diseases and inhibits the release of serotonin from neurons which is linked to mood, happiness, and positive outlook.

Optimises mental performance, due to:

  • The robust release of norepinephrine (a neurotransmitter and hormone) into the bloodstream and brain. This means cryotherapy may help to improve focus, attention and mood.
  • The release of cold shock proteins in the brain, in particular RNA binding motif 3 (RBM3). This means cryotherapy may help support memory by preventing the loss of synapses which delays the brain from aging and decelerates neurodegenerative diseases, i.e. Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Improves immune function, due to the:

  • Increase in certain types of immune cells which have been shown to kill viruses and tumor cells, e.g. cytotoxic T lymphocytes.
  • Decrease of respiratory tract infections which serves to reduce the occurrence of everyday cold and flu symptoms.

This means Cryotherapy can help your body to maintain a strong and active immune system.

Increases metabolism, due to the:

  • Cold-induced thermogenesis which occurs as a biological response to producing heat to warm the body thus boosting energy and burning fat.
  • Increase in mitochondria which increases brown fat and is associated with trending towards a lower body fat percentage as well as a higher tolerance to withstanding the cold for a longer period of time.

Increases the activation of very potent genetic antioxidant enzymes (which are exponentially more powerful than supplemental antioxidants) – including glutathione reductase and superoxide dismutase – which are in your mitochondria preventing damage to important cellular components every second of the day. This antioxidant activity plays an extremely important role in helping your body to stay healthy and cancer free.

Increases athletic performance due to the reduction in inflammation and increase in anti-inflammatory factors which play a role in muscle repair. Furthermore, research suggests that the production of a cold shock protein called RBM3 may serve as a generalized mechanism for preventing the loss of muscle mass.

Improves sleep quality, due to the:

  • Decrease in surface body temperature.
  • The activity of the central nervous system.
  • Cold-induced thermogenesis which can reset your circadian rhythm [Source].
  • Increase in norepinephrine which is involved in the production and release of melatonin (the sleep hormone) in the pineal gland of the brain [Source].

Increases the production of collagen in your skin due to the significant increase in blood flow from the short lived constriction of blood vessels which is then followed by a dilation. Collagen production has a direct influence on improving the elasticity and firmness of your skin thus reducing cellulite. Cryotherapy has been found to have a positive effect on the regenerative process of the skin.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) can relieve pain and stimulate wound healing. PBM has been shown to reduce pain immediately after treatment of acute neck pain and up to 22 weeks after completion of treatment of chronic neck pain. In regards to fibromyalgia, PBM has been shown to improve pain threshold and tenderness. In regards to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), PBM has been shown to alleviate pain and symptoms, improve functional ability, finger and hand strength for mild and moderate CTS patients. In regards to musculoskeletal health, PBM may enhance the oxidative energy metabolic capacity of different types of muscle fibers, and be used to enhance the aerobic potential of skeletal muscle. In regards to Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis), PBM in addition to exercise has been shown to effectively relieve pain, and improve the grip strength and subjective rating of physical function. Furthermore, PBM has been shown to successfully induce wound healing in non-healing defects, burns, amputation injuries, skin grafts, infected wounds, trapping injuries, radiotherapy-induced ulcers and oral mucositis.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) prior to exercise (muscular pre-conditioning), has been proven to not only prevent muscle damage but enhance sports performance and accelerate recovery. PBM can increase energy metabolism and ATP synthesis. PBM can increase muscle mass and maximum load in exercise. PBM can significantly decrease blood lactate levels, inflammatory markers, muscle pain, damage, atrophy, fatigue and Delayed-Onset of Muscle Soreness (DOMS). PBM can up-regulate protein synthesis and oxidative stress defense.  PBM can improve the speed of the muscular VO2 adaptation, decrease O2 deficit, increase the VO2 from the slow component phase, increase exercise capacity and duration. PBM can modulate metabolic and renal function. PBM can repair muscle damage after injury. PBM may also be of vital importance for patients with heart disease (advanced coronary artery disease) during exercise.

INFRARED SAUNA SCIENCE

Infrared heat penetrates the body and heats you from the inside out, promoting the body to sweat and release harmful toxins that are stored under the skins surface. Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.

Increasing the body’s core temperature, similar to a fever, promotes the same benefits, like, white blood cell and T cell production to ward off viruses. At the same time Infrared heat stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells.

Infrared heat has been shown to be highly beneficial to relieve tension and relax muscles. Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally. For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, other chronic pain conditions and fibromyalgia.

Studies have shown far-infrared sauna therapy is both safe and effective at improving clinical symptoms and cardiac function as well as decreasing cardiac size in chronic heart failure patients. Repeated infrared sauna treatments improved impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventive role for infrared sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

https://www.sunlighten.com/infrared-sauna-health-benefits/blood-pressure/

Infrared heat heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. The elevation in body temperature from an Infrared sauna session also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. Another benefit of improved circulation from Infrared sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity.

BRAIN TAP SCIENCE

The combination of Binaural Beats, Guided Visualisation, 10-Cycle Holographic Music and Isocrhonic Tones create the right ingredients for the BrainTap to change the state of the mind and body. Binaural beats play two different frequencies, one in each ear, forcing the brain to create a third unique tone. Guided visualisation is done through spoken word sessions to help the individual maintain a visual image through the visualisation. Holographic music allow the visualisations to become more real to the mind, allowing the user to take full advantage of the visualisation and create a more receptive learning state. Isochronic tones are equal intensity pulses of sound separated by an interval of silence, changing to reach the desired brain frequency and are easy for the brain to follow.
