Whole Body Cryotherapy is an advanced therapy procedure that uses extremely low temperatures to eliminate inflammations and pain while simultaneously improving athletic performance and recovery. The skin is exposed to temperatures between –200℉ and –250℉ for three minutes consequently stimulating the nervous system which causes peripheral vasoconstriction. Subsequently, the body dramatically becomes adaptive and responds by reducing any present pains and inflammations.

This recovery and performance improvement technique was first introduced by Japan’s Dr. Yamaguchi in 1978 as a method of treating patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). The word cryotherapy is derived from two Greek words “Kryos” meaning cold and “Therapia” meaning cure. He concluded that a rapid short-term freezing of the skin resulted in a release of endorphins.

How It Works

Once in the cryochamber, the skin is exposed to these low temperatures of between –200℉ and –250℉. The skin will respond by decreasing the body temperature by 30 to 50 degrees. This 2 to 3-minute exposure will cause the blood vessels to constrict and dilate at the same time. This activity forces other body systems like the nervous, circulatory, and energy meridians to respond. The chamber uses liquid nitrogen to lower the temperatures. However, a person is never in contact with the gas. There is no general perception of the extreme cold since no air moisture or air currents exist. This treatment ensures that one’s body reacts to the cold but does not allow the cold to create an uncomfortable feeling under the skin.

How It Feels Afterward

The body releases endorphin hormone during the sessions. This hormone is responsible for creating a good, positive, and energetic feeling. This is made possible since the person exhibits cell rejuvenation, detoxification, a boost on the immune system, and general body healing. Athletes who are part of this treatment experience increased endurance levels and fast healing rates after intense training without pain afterward. As a result, they can do intense training and practice more frequently to achieve their maximum potential. These enhanced feelings could extend for several days since the last session was done.
