Whole Body Cryotherapy was first developed in 1978 by Dr. Yamaguchi of Japan to treat patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The technology quickly spread to Europe where it was further researched and developed as a treatment for surgical recovery, chronic physical conditions, increasing athletic performance and decreasing muscle recovery time, weight loss, improving skin tone and texture, treating anxiety and depression, as well as Psoriasis and Fibromyalgia.
In the Cryochamber the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures of -200 to -230 F. Your skin surface temperature will typically decrease by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of two-three minutes. The sudden temperature change causes your blood vessels to massively constrict and dilate inducing responses from the Circulatory System, the Energy Meridians, and the Nervous System.
During each session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days.
