Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC)
During Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) treatment the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures, down to (-141° C/-256° F). The client is placed in a cryosauna or cryochamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes, during this time the client’s skin surface temperature is lowered significantly, stimulating skin receptors.
This modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted over the last two decades in Europe have established WBC as a powerful treatment for a broad range of inflammatory disorders, bodily injuries and conditions.
Professional athletes have discovered WBC is a powerful treatment to decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance. Although Whole Body Cryotherapy originated in Japan, it was a group of Polish scientists who developed the modality and made Whole Body Cryotherapy the well established physical therapy it is today. The Olympic rehabilitation center in Spala, Poland opened in May 2000, Cryotherapy is used in this facility during training and injury rehabilitation for many athletes. In the past 3-5 years, numerous professional sports franchises have installed Cryotherapy saunas and chambers in their training facilities.
