Have you ever experienced a "runner's high"? Do you wonder why you feel so good after a workout? And kinda grumpy when you miss one? The answer is....endorphins!
Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, "similar to morphine" (webmd). They also act as natural pain relievers and help to combat depression. One common way to trigger the release of endorphins is through exercise. Another, more uncommon way, is cryotherapy. The "fight-or-flight" response leads to a number of physiological reactions. One of which is the release of these mood-enhancing, pain-relieving, euphoria-inducing ENDORPHINS.
If you haven't tried cryotherapy yet, you're missing out.
If you have, then you know what we're talking about. In the words of Brian P. after his first cryotherapy session: "I feel like I just got a promotion!"
