Many professional athletes worldwide swear by Cryotherapy as the ultimate way to speed up muscle recovery allowing them a more sustained performance at an elite level. Whether you are an athlete, weightlifter, bodybuilder, weekend warrior or regular exerciser, Cryo sessions help speed up muscle repair allowing you to achieve your peak performance and goals.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) exposes your body to extremely cold temperatures for a short period of time to stimulate your body's natural healing mechanisms by activating a fight or flight response. Oxygen-rich blood flows through the muscles and core. It provides a safe and natural way of decreasing inflammation and improving your skin and immune system while accelerating the healing of damaged soft tissue and sore joints. Think of it as an extreme version of an ice pack or ice bath but faster, more efficient and way more comfortable.

In order for athletes to become faster and stronger, they must train harder. And in order to train harder, it is necessary to recover faster from both workouts and from injuries. Whole Body Cryotherapy induces the body to release anti-inflammatory proteins and other muscle-repairing chemicals. See the videos on the right to hear the great results from top athletes.
Elite & amateur athletes are using WBC to dramatically increase their performances. Cryotherapy has been used for decades in sports & training to treat and relieve chronic pain symptoms associated with overuse injuries. WBC has been proven in sports medicine as a recovery modality from muscle and ligament damage due to the anti-inflammatory and restorative properties of intense cold treatment.
When the body is exposed to extreme cold, the result is rapid vasoconstriction of the blood vessels followed by rapid vasodilation. This process helps the body expel toxins and speed distribution of pain reducing endorphins. Highly oxygenated blood is presented to the affected areas helping the body repair and strengthen itself as well as increasing stamina during competition.
Because cryotherapy does not freeze muscles or tissues (like an ice bath does), an athlete can treated pre-workout, as well as post-workout. A cryo treatment before exercise will reduce inflammation, release endorphins and increase energy. Of course, cryo treatments after sports sessions will accelerate recovery and injury repair.
Medical experts agree that chronic inflammation is one of your body's worst enemies. Inflammation is now believed to be at the core of developing many diseases associated with aging and disability, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer's. Whole Body Cryotherapy is an important tool for health primarily due to its proven ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body.

Medical research shows that Whole Body Cryotherapy reduces inflammation and helps to alleviate chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, ankylosing spondylosis, psoriasis, dermatitis and osteoporosis. Studies have also shown that Whole Body Cryotherapy is beneficial in the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety and depression.
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment is ideal for overall health and wellness. The outer surface of the skin is lowered to nearly 32 degrees F for 2-3 minutes. The small blood vessels and capillaries in the skin and muscles undergo severe vasoconstriction followed by severe vasodilation. This causes toxins in the body to be expelled, and signals the brain to release highly beneficial biochemicals into the bloodstream. The body has basically moved into repair mode to counteract the perception of danger.
The exposure to the extreme cold tricks the body into thinking that it is in hypothermia, causing it to increase metabolic rate and protect the core. Although the body is not at risk, this process causes the body to "burn" between 500-800 calories. Most clients notice a sound night’s sleep and the release of endorphins into the body leaves many clients with an immediate feeling of being energized.
