What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a practice of using a "cryosauna" machine to dispense nitrogen gas around the body. While cooling the surface of the body to sub freezing temperatures, the goal of cryotherapy is to activate a beneficial physiological response.
The Healing Power of Cold
Inflammation is the sole cause for nearly every disease or illness the human body experiences. Where there is pain in the body, there is inflammation. Inflammation can stem from a number of sources including injury, surgery or even self-induced inflammation through exercise and strenuous activity. Unfortunately, medications designed to reduce inflammation wreak havoc on other systems in our body causing irreversible damage.
Whole Body Cryotherapy aims to change the way we recover from inflammation & pain. Instead of introducing the body to harmful substances found in many anti-inflammatory drugs, Cryotherapy ‘biohacks’ the body’s nervous system using acute exposure to freezing temperatures to trigger the release of anti-inflammatory agents. The results speak for themselves. Cryotherapy has been utilized since the 1980’s to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, muscle inflammation & chronic pain. We invite you to experience the plethora of benefits that cryotherapy can offer and explore a more holistic, healthy approach to living a better life.
Where did cryotherapy come from?
Whole Body Cryotherapy found its beginnings in Japan in the late 1970’s by Dr. Yamaguchi, who first started using freezing treatments on his arthritis patients for pain management. What Dr. Yamaguchi found was that his patients experienced a significant reduction in soreness and joint pain after the drastic temperature decrease of the outer layers of skin.
