What is cryotherapy? Why do so many people love it?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) was originally developed in Japan in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Safely and effectively used in Europe for over 30 years we are now seeing many more benefits from exposing the body to extreme cold for just 1.5-3 minutes. Studies conducted have established WBC as a powerful modality for inflammation reduction, pain management, increased energy and metabolism.
How does all this happen? When you first enter the chamber at -240F, the blood vessels constrict forcing all the blood to the core to protect vital organs. Here is where your body works to remove toxins and inflammatory properties in the blood while enriching your blood with oxygen. This oxygen enriched blood bolsters organs and when you step out of the Cryosauna the blood is released from the “internal cycle” and flows back out to your extremities bringing all the healing properties with it. Over the next 6-8 hours your body will continue to recover and restore to a better self.
Most doctors will tell you, chronic inflammation is major cause of pain and disease. Decreasing inflammation in the body will help fight infection, heart disease, cancer, arthritis and visible signs of aging.
Cryotherapy stimulates cellular regeneration for faster healing. It has been so successful in Europe that treatments are covered by medical insurance in many countries. In the US, elite athletes, pro teams and celebrities have implemented cryotherapy into their regular routines.
Whether you seek pain management, improved athletic performance/recovery, weight loss, anti-aging or simply better overall wellness, come see why millions around the world have made cryotherapy a cornerstone component of their weekly or even daily routines.
