Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities through exposure to extreme cold. Whole Body Cryotherapy was developed by 1978 by Dr. Yamouchi in Japan as a treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis. In 1984, the German Rheumatologist, Professor Reinhard Fricke, brought Whole Body Cryotherapy to Europe, where it became increasingly popular. Over the past three decades it gained even more popularity as it’s performance enhancing and general health and wellness benefits have become more well known. In the United States, WBC became more well known when the 2010-2011 Dallas Mavericks used WBC during their NBA championship title run. Today many professional athletes among all sports use WBC to improve recovery time and celebrities use it for overall wellbeing. There is no other therapy known to elicit such a powerful, positive and holistic response.

What to expect in the cryosauna

The cryosauna is a high-tech machine that administers whole-body cryotherapy to the body. It's a safe and natural therapy, making it very popular among those who have grown tired of other therapeutic methods
that may only mask symptoms or make them worse.

Treatments are completely safe, pain free and surprisingly comfortable! The cryosauna will expose your skin to temperatures below zero degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes or less. Your skin temperature will initially drop to 32 degrees before rising to 95 degrees for 30-45 seconds (normal skin temperature is 90.5 degrees) and then goes down to normal.

Exposing your body to the cold temperatures of a cryosauna will stimulate the natural responses of your body, resulting in significant benefits; such as reduction of inflammation, and swelling. Not only is your immune system stimulated, but every organ in your body is affected positively.

The extreme cold exposure causes the body to turn up its metabolic rate in order to produce heat. This effect lasts hours after the procedure, causing the body to
burn around 500 calories. After several procedures, the increase in metabolic rate tends to last longer between sessions.

The cold air activates an increased production of collagen in deeper layers of your skin, causing your
skin to become smoother and more even-toned, regaining elasticity and significantly improving the overall condition of your skin.

Skin vessels and capillaries undergo severe vasoconstriction (to keep the core temperature from dropping), followed by vasodilation after the procedure. Toxins and other stored deposits are flushed out of the layers of the skin and blood perfusion is improved after several treatments.

Cryosauna therapy can lead to medication reduction
due to your body's natural healing responses to the cryosauna. Think of it as a trigger that releases
our body's own natural nutrients.
