In order for athletes to become bigger, faster, and stronger, they must train harder. And in order to train harder, you have to recover faster from both workouts and injuries. Whole Body Cryotherapy allows the body to release anti-inflammatory proteins and many muscle-repairing chemicals to heal faster and get you in the game!
What is it?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the therapeutic treatment of exposing the body to extreme cold, which triggers a systemic anti-inflammatory response.
WBC originated in Japan to treat rheumatoid arthritis and to help decrease pain and inflammation in a number of chronic illnesses and disease. Studies performed in Europe over the last few decades have established the effectiveness of WBC in the treatment of a variety of conditions.

Cryotherapy is an effective treatment for athletic recovery, pain management, inflammation reduction and skin improvement. Numerous peer-reviewed studies have confirmed the benefits of WBC.

CHRONIC MEDICAL CONDITIONS & INFLAMMATION
Chronic inflammation is extremely detrimental to the human body and serves as a precursor to many chronic, life-threatening diseases today such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, aging, and disability. Whole Body Cryotherapy is proven to drastically reduce inflammation throughout the body tissues.
WBC treatment is ideal for overall health and wellness due to its dramatic healing effects on the human body. If you suffer from arthritis, asthma, back pain, depression, fatigue, tendonitis, joint pain, or Multiple Sclerosis conditions, WBC can help you experience relief and lasting therapeutic benefits.
Due to the extreme cold and the physiologic process that follows, WBC has the ability to “trick” the body into thinking that it is in a hypothermic state, causing it to ramp-up metabolic rate to protect the core and vital organs.
ANTI-AGING AND SKIN REJUVENATION
Collagen is the most integral protein found in the connective tissue of the human body. An increase of healthy collagen production leads to healthier, younger- looking skin. WBC initiates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, giving the skin a smoother and firmer appearance. After a series of WBC treatments, clients notice improved skin tone and renewed elasticity. Treatment has also helped patients with psoriasis, acne, and other skin related issues.
