What Is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is exposure to subzero temperatures. The extreme cold stimulates skin sensors, activating a Central Nervous System (CNS) response. This causes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators, while the enhanced circulation activity (blood movement into and out of the core) decreases inflammation by clearing toxins and metabolic waste with a supply of oxygen and nutrient enriched blood to stimulate cellular regeneration (faster healing). The intense cold activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, increases cell rejuvenation, improves skin tone and reduces signs of aging.
Treatments have been adopted by elite athletes and pro teams for muscle and injury recovery. WBC is becoming nationally well documented as being used for the daily management of pain, inflammation, energy, and stress related conditions.
