What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) was first used in Japan in the late 1970’s to treat pain and rheumatoid arthritis. The therapy then became popular in Europe where it’s been used for more than 30 years prior to coming to the US. Studies conducted over the last two decades have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries.
WBC is administered in a Cryosauna. It’s a metal chamber open on the top equipped with a door and platform that adjusts to each client’s height. The sauna uses cryogenically cooled air to quickly lower your skin temperature in less than 60 seconds. The body is exposed to temperatures low enough to trigger a systemic anti-inflammatory response.
