About Cryotherapy

History of Whole Body Cryotherapy

Research into extreme cold therapy began in 1978 by Dr. T. Yamauchi, a rheumatogist in Japan.  He started using freezing treatments of short duration on his rheumatoid arthritis patients’ skin surface for pain management purposes.  He concluded that rapid short-term freezing of the skin’s surface led to immediate release of endorphins and is more effective than gradual cooling in an ice bath.  Further research conducted over the last two decades in Europe has established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries.

Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatment

Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are administered individually via a Cryochamber.  The cryochamber is based on mixing liquid nitrogen with air to form a vapour at an extremely low temperature. The extreme temperatures range from (minus) -110°C to -190°C.  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.
