Cryotherapy Sleep and relaxation

One of those effects is the release of feel good endorphins in the brain and an increase in production of norepinephrine as well. The endorphins, once in your bloodstream, will act as an analgesic which will decrease any sensations of pain you might have been experiencing while simultaneously acting as a mild sedative. Norepinephrine is a hormone and neurotransmitter that affects your sleep-wake cycle and has dramatic effects on energy, focus, mood, and sleep patterns. That means that these changes in your body caused by cryotherapy will directly affect how well you sleep!

Other effects include a boost to your immune system and a reduction of pain and inflammation. When your immunity is heightened, it is easier to combat and resist catching colds, disease and other illnesses that might keep you up at night as a side effect from the sickness itself or from the pain/problems you have to manage from the illness. Similarly, less pain and inflammation will prevent trouble you have when falling asleep and also it helps against frequently waking up/ tossing and turning throughout the night. These changes in your body indirectly affect how well you sleep!
