Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a revolutionary method of cold therapy involving 3 minutes of exposure to subzero temperatures ranging from -200°F to -300°F. This is not a medical procedure, but a surprisingly comfortable, non-invasive option for people seeking exceptional results.
During the three minute treatment, the exposure to subzero temperatures causes the skin’s cold receptors to stimulate the nervous system. The body perceives this sudden and extreme cold to be a life-threatening situation and activates a chain of powerful survival mechanisms involving the body’s most crucial systems. Vasoconstriction occurs and blood is redirected from the skin to preserve the vital organs and maintain core temperature. When the patient re-enters a room-temperature environment, vasodilation occurs and the blood rushes back to the skin. Blood circulation is naturally stimulated and oxygenated blood is delivered to damaged tissue.
BENEFITS OF WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY:
With Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures, triggering a systemic anti-inflammatory response. The client is placed in Cryotherapy Chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes which lowers the client’s skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors without damaging any tissue.
This modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. European studies conducted over the last two decades have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries. The accelerated production of collagen improves skin elasticity and texture, reversing skin aging and the appearance of cellulite. WBC boosts the body’s metabolic rate, accelerating weight loss outcomes. Professional athletes have discovered WBC as a powerful treatment to decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance.

SPORTS AND FITNESS BENEFITS:
Professional teams and elite athletes have been using Whole Body Cryotherapy to win championships and Olympic Gold Medals. Cryotherapy has been used for decades in sports and training to treat and relieve chronic pain symptoms associated with competitive injury and overuse and has been proven in sports medicine as a recovery modality from muscle and ligament damage due to the anti-inflammatory and restorative properties of intense cold treatment.
Cryotherapy sessions before or after completion or workouts help to increase your energy, stamina and metabolic rate. Post-sport sessions will aid in recovery an injury repair.
BEAUTY AND ANTI-AGING:
WBC stimulates collagen production, resulting in anti-aging skin rejuvenation and cellulite reduction. Also, a surge in metabolism consumes 400 to 800 calories, aiding in weight loss.
Skin Rejuvenation and Anti-Aging:
The Nitrogen environment and intense cold of nearly -240 F activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving it smoother, firmer and tighter. After a series of treatments, clients notice more even tone and renewed elasticity and an improved overall ‘younger’ appearance. A reduction in cellulite has also been noted as another benefit.
Weight Loss and Burns Calories:
Although regular exercise and healthy eating are major factors in maintaining a healthy weight, cryotherapy can help, if combined with a proper diet and exercise routine, to burn up to 500-800 calories after each 3-minute session. Repeated cryotherapy can help to reset the body’s metabolic rate and naturally increase the body’s metabolism for up to 8 hours after each 3-minute session.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS BENEFITS:
A safe and natural treatment, the benefits of cryotherapy help to decrease inflammation, reduce pain, increase cellular survival, and promote overall health. In a 3-minute cryotherapy treatment, the sub-zero temperatures cause blood to rush to the core as a survival mechanism where the blood becomes oxygen-rich and nutrient-dense. Instantly after the treatment, blood recirculates throughout the body, removing toxins and inflammation and encouraging natural healing.
