WHAT IS IT?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) exposes the body to cold temperatures in a cryosauna to stimulate the natural healing process of your body. The cryosauna uses nitrogen gas to lower the skin’s top layer to 30 degrees for up to 3 minutes. The brain stimulates the body’s organs to regulate which results in the body going into a self-healing process.
Whole Body Cryotherapy is the exposure of a person’s skin to temperatures of -150 to – 170 degrees Celsius (- 238 to – 274 degrees Fahrenheit) for a short time (3 minutes or less). At this extreme temperature, the body activates several mechanisms that have significant benefits.
In 1978 by Dr. T. Yamauchi, a Rheumatogist, in Japan started using freezing treatments for a short duration on his rheumatoid arthritis patients’ skin surface as a pain management treatment. 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 Whole Body Cryotherapy as an effective treatment for pain management, recovery from injuries, and overall wellness.
The oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flow that your body will experience after your whole body cryotherapy will help to improve your immune system and organ function, while reducing inflammation.
