Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a sophisticated method of cold therapy involving three minutes of skin exposure to temperatures between -200°F to -250°F. Studies conducted over the last two decades have established cryotherapy as a powerful adjunct treatment for reducing symptoms of pain and inflammation, as well as an effective method to improve recovery time for athletes, treat skin conditions and aid in weight loss. The sympathetic nervous system is stimulated by the skin’s cold receptors, causing severe vasoconstriction, followed by rapid vasodilation. Blood flow to the skin’s surface and extremities is redirected to insulate vital organs and maintain core temperature, which can fluctuate by only 4.5° C between states of hypothermia and hyperthermia. Cryotherapy immediately improves blood circulation, ensuring adequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients to bodily tissues, while improving the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins.

One of the benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy is the ability to turn on our own internal heat-producing metabolism. This is a fast way to induce a hyperthermic response (increased metabolic state) that will last for 6 hours. The treatment itself takes 3 minutes.
