Whole Body Cryotherapy Benefits

Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy

What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?


Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is cold therapy administered in the Cryosauna fueled by the vapor of liquid nitrogen. During your cyrotherapy session you will be in our special cryochamber and exposed to temperatures of -116 to -220F for up to three minutes.

As your temperature decreases inside the cryosauna your body goes into a flight or fight response. This process causes your body to respond by only allowing blood flow to your most vital organs and temporarily cutting off blood flow to reach the less important extremities. Your body prepares to fix any damages that would normally occur in a fight or flight response by pushing oxygen, enzymes & nutrients into your blood.

When your cryotherapy treatment is done and you step out of the cryosauna your body temperature will start to rise quickly and restore to it’s normal temperature. The now nutrient dense blood will flow throughout your entire body with increased circulation and accelerate cell renewal in skin, muscles and tissues.

While each cryotherapy session can help increase energy, relieve various & chronic pain symptoms (including those that may result from sore muscles, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, ankylosing spondylitis) and improve skin firmness, we recommend more than one local or whole body cryotherapy treatment.

For optimal relief of whole body cryotherapy we strongly recommend completing at least 10 cryotherapy sessions within a 30-day time period or 3 cryotherapy sessions in one week to maximize the proven benefits.
