Introduction to Neuro Cryostimulation
The basic process
The use of CO2 at -110°F under high pressure causes the skin temperature to fall from 89.6°F to 39.6°F within 30 seconds; this reaction is known as thermal shock.
This activates the cutaneous neuroreceptors, generating an immediate remote corrective reflex in the organism that activates the NEUROVEGETATIVE system.
This produces several effects on endocrine and enzymatic production, an inhibitive effect on pain receptors through the reduction of sodium pump activity, the relaying of nervous impulses, and the activation of the vasomotor reflex of the vascular, and lymphatic systems.
There is an additional, muscle relaxant effect, observable in the reduction in muscle tone.
