Whole Body Cryotherapy is a hypothermic application designed to reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation. WBC stimulates the nervous system through skin receptors, causing dramatic peripheral vasoconstriction. This induces adaptive changes correlating with effects of analgesia, reduction of inflammation, and increases in serum markers of tissue repair. Whole Body Cryotherapy stimulates the body's natural healing abilities. WBC uses Extreme Cold to induce responses on Three Levels: the Circulatory System, the Energy Meridians and the Nervous System. There is no other therapy known to elicit such a powerful, positive and holistic response.
HISTORY OF WBC: The history of Whole Body Cryotherapy began in Japan, developed in Europe, and migrated to the United States. Clinical studies are numerous and focused on treatment of pain and inflammation from Sports Injuries, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and skin conditions like Psoriasis and Dermatitis.
WBC TREATMENT: Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are administered individually via a cryosauna. The cyrosauna uses gasiform nitrogen to rapidly lower the skin's top layer to 32°F while cabin temperature drops to a range of -130ºF to -184ºF. During the two to three minutes of extreme cold, the brain stimulates the body's organ regulatory functions resulting in energy increase, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, and overall system self-healing.
