The top biohacks to unleash peak well-being
Mark Murdock of CryoUSA on the science behind today’s cutting-edge treatments
We’re delving into the next-level biohacking techniques that are gaining popularity across the country: whole body cryotherapy, photobiomodulation and dynamic sequential compression. These top biohacks aren’t just reserved for world-class athletes or celebrities – they’ve become a key component of many individuals’ everyday health and wellness routines.
Tony met with Mark Murdock of CryoUSA to discuss just why cryotherapy has become such an integral strategy for recovery and what other cutting-edge technology is helping him stay in peak condition. Then we segue into an in-depth interview between our host, Ana Yoerg, and Mark, where you will learn more about the treatments themselves and how you can start incorporating them into your life.
The 3 treatments that changed Tony’s life
Tony lives life on-the-go. The travel, late nights and early mornings take a toll on his body. And anyone who has attended an event will understand how physical Tony gets on stage: walking, jumping and clapping. When he discovered cryotherapy, light treatments and compression, he changed his entire recovery regimen.
Cryotherapy and compression help to eliminate waste and bring down inflammation, while the laser heals specific spots. Tony even has a full-body light bed and a portable laser he takes for travel. He says, “The laser works when nothing else does.” But it’s the combination of the three together that is “invigorating, strengthening and allows me to perform at a higher level.”
The science behind the treatments
- Cryotherapy is a process by which the body is exposed to very cold temperatures. It has been linked to increased blood circulation, an enhanced immune system, decreased fatigue, accelerated injury recovery, improved sleep patterns and even an elevated sense of cognitive abilities.
- Photomodulation is a treatment by which red and infrared light can penetrate into the mitochondria of the human cell. It has proved incredibly effective at relieving inflammation and chronic pain.
- Dynamic sequential compression helps to pump toxins away from your lymphatic system. It’s known to relieve muscle aches, boost circulation, prevent future injuries and reduce recovery time – benefits that could propel anyone to the next level, which is why Tony Robbins himself has become such a raving fan.
Mark Murdock and CryoUSA
Mark Murdock is the managing partner of CryoUSA, one of the companies on the cutting-edge of these three technologies. He’s also an expert about the underlying cause of many of our health problems: inflammation. Many medical treatments on the market today are Band-Aids, but CryoUSA’s approaches are systemic, treating the underlying problem itself.
Mark is proud to say that today, his compression technology is in almost every NHL, NFL, NBA and MLB training room. But it isn’t just for athletes. People buy them for home use. Workplaces provide them for employees. And existing medical practices can easily add it as an additional service.
Both Mark and Tony know that it’s not just about pain management. It’s about health and wellness and taking your physicality to its optimal state. Listen now to discover how you can experience the benefits of the top biohacks.
The greatest thing for Mark isn’t the athletes or entertainers who are photographed with his top biohack tech. It’s the passion he sees every day from people who have experienced the benefits of the treatments themselves. He says, “People love it and they want to tell others about it . . . When you get people meeting at the level of their passion, really amazing things happen.” Are you ready to see for yourself?
