Whole Body Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and the benefits have been studied and refined in Europe since that time. Cryotherapy is now utilitzed in the United States, and with wonderful results. Whole body Cryotherapy involves exposing the body to an extreme cold enviroment of -150 degrees Fahrenheit and less.
Initially, as the blood vessels constrict, blood moves away from the limbs and towards the vital organs of the body. This is a protective and natural measure that the body takes in response to extreme cold. In the process, several systems within the body are affected and it is here that the benefits begin.
- decrease in inflammation
- increased athletic performance levels
- increased metabolism
- reduction of chronic pain and fatigue
- mood boost
- and collagen boost
