About Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy is an intense and exhilarating therapy that has been researched to reduce overall inflammation by stimulating nerve receptors on the skin's surface causing vasoconstriction in extremities. Within this process Whole Body Cryotherapy has been proven to produce an analgesic (painkilling) effect on the body reducing inflammation, even producing tissue repair markers notated in blood serum levels.
History of Whole Body Cryotherapy:
Research into extreme cold therapy began in 1978 by Dr. T. Yamauchi, a rheumatologist in Japan. He started using freezing treatments of short duration on his rheumatoid arthritis patients' skin surface for pain management purposes. He concluded that rapid short-term freezing of the skin's surface led to immediate release of endorphins and is more effective than gradual cooling in an ice bath. Further research conducted over the last two decades in Europe has established WBC as a powerful treatment for inﬂammatory disorders and injuries.
Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatment:
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are administered individually via a CryoSauna. The cryosauna uses gasiform nitrogen to rapidly lower the skin's top layer to 32°F while cabin temperature drops to a range of (minus) - 220°F to -274°F. During the two to three minutes of extreme cold, the brain stimulates the body's organ regulatory functions resulting in energy increase, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, and overall system self-healing.
