Origin of Cryotherapy & Benefits

This technique was first used in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatic diseases, where it was studied and established as a powerful treatment for pain and inflammation associated with a number of many chronic conditions. Over the next three decades it quickly spread to Europe and other countries as it became widely known for its broad range of benefits. It is now becoming popular throughout the United States.

The term cryotherapy comes from the greek word cryo, meaning “cold” and therapy, meaning “cure.” Ice has been used for a long time to reduce swelling and inflammation. Ice packs and ice baths are the traditional ways that the cold has been applied. Today, there is a much faster and more effective way to cool damaged tissue, reduce inflammation and swelling while enhancing the healing process.

Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are administered individually in a CryoSauna. The cryosauna uses gasiform nitrogen to rapidly lower the skin’s top layer to 32°F, while cabin temperature drops to a range of -166°F to -270°F. During the two to three minutes of extreme cold, the brain stimulates the body’s organ regulatory functions resulting in vasoconstriction and pulls your blood to your core. During this time, the blood is oxygenated and cleansed. After stepping out of the chamber the enriched blood circulates to your extremities providing many benefits.
