Whole Body Cryotherapy is a better alternative to an ice bath and is much more convenient and easier to tolerate. You step into a chamber that is cooled to below -200º F for up to 3 minutes at a time, under constant supervision.
As your body is exposed to the cold, the veins on the exterior regions of your body begin to constrict, causing blood to rush into your body’s core (around key internal organs) where the blood becomes super oxygenated and nutritionally rich. Once you are removed from the chamber, your blood vessels expand, allowing all of that newly rejuvenated blood to rush back to your extremities and skin. This process speeds up your body’s natural healing process, resulting in an invigorating rejuvenation of your body on many deep levels. Cryotherapy also triggers the release of endorphins (which induce pain relief), adrenaline, and other hormones that help restore youthful vibrance and proper balance in your body.

The use of cold therapy has been around for ages (as early as the 17th century). In 1978 however, a Dr. Yamaguchi of Japan began using locally applied, short duration freezing sessions on his rheumatoid arthritis patients and found that it provided immediate pain relief.
Through further research, Dr. Yamaguchi and his associates found that dry, rapid freezing of the skin’s surface was much more effective than its wet, ice bath counterpart, AND it had a profound impact on the body on three different levels:
A group of Polish scientists also researched further and developed the Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment systems that are so effectively being used today.
