The Rock Institute
The Rock Institute's health-savvy staff and medical advisers guide patients toward overall wellness with holistic services that strive to maximize performance and alleviate pain. During cryotherapy sessions, clients shiver inside the compact atrium of a vertical cryo-chamber, which chills dermal temperatures with frigid blasts of liquid nitrogen, triggering the body's natural response of growing a full-length fur coat. The glacial gadget swiftly cools the skin's surface to 30–32 degrees for one to three minutes, and then jacks temperatures up to a short-lived 95 degrees before restoring epidermises to thermal equilibrium. Such rapid cooling of the corporeal thermostat is thought to target the body's pain and inflammation responses, helping to alleviate the aches of professional athletes, patients with chronic pain, and homesick polar bears. Cryotherapy can potentially also rejuvenate skin, compress cellulite, and diminish overall fatigue, with posttreatment results lasting up to three hours.
