Pain is an unpleasant feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli, such as stubbing a toe, burning a finger, putting alcohol on a cut, and bumping the “funny bone”.
In medicine pain relates to a sensation that hurts. If you feel pain it hurts, you feel discomfort, distress and perhaps agony, depending on the severity of it. Pain can be steady and constant, in which case it may be an ache. It might be a throbbing pain – a pulsating pain. The pain could have a pinching sensation, or a stabbing one.
In the medical and pharmacological fields, the treatment of pain is the biggest and most profitable business. According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine; “More than half of Americans live with chronic or recurrent pain. Leading causes of recurrent or persistent pain affecting Americans are headache pain, back pain, and neck pain. About four in 10 Americans say pain interferes with their mood, activities, sleep, ability to do work or enjoyment of life. Two-thirds report interference with any one of these.”
But, what if there was a new therapy which uses no drugs or surgery to give you relief from pain.
At iceland Cryo we use a Cryosauna machine to give relief from pain and inflammation.
The American Medical Association has stated; “After emerging from the Cryosauna patients report a pleasant warm feeling throughout the whole body. All joints move more fluidly, they feel happy, strong, and full of energy; this initial positive effect may last up to six hours. The immediate effect of skin cooling and analgesia lasts for five minutes, but the release of endorphins can have a lasting effect, where the pains and signs of inflammation as found in blood tests remain suppressed for weeks. Advocates claim that it takes 20 to 50 sessions to create long-term benefits. This type of cryotherapy is used to treat fibromyalgia, amongst other disorders.”
Dr. Oz recommends Cryotherapy for the relief from pain and inflammation. Tony Robbins has his own Cryosauna machine at his home in Florida.
