How Does Whole Body Cryotherapy Work?

Whole body cryotherapy is the use of a brief and intense exposure to cold that triggers the body’s natural healing process. Originally developed for the treatment of inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis, we have now found whole body cryotherapy provides a wide range of benefits from sports recovery to weight loss, improved skin, better sleep, and many others. The results are dramatically quick and surprisingly long lasting. With regular use, many have experienced chronic issues to be permanently resolved.

Whether you are dealing with chronic pain due to a sports injury or you are looking for a way to improve your overall health, choosing whole body cryotherapy treatments will give you the tools for success. This innovative treatment option is designed to serve as an effective solution for a large part of your physical issues.

Is a Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatment Like an Ice Bath?

You are simply unable to achieve the same results with an ice bath. After 12-15 minutes of a shockingly painful cold ice bath, the skin temperature only arrives at 41 degrees. With just 2-3 minutes of whole body cryotherapy, the skin temperature gets as low as 30 degrees. This temperature allows for a different physiological response from the body increasing your speed of recovery and overall healing. During an ice bath, the cold actually penetrates into deeper skin tissue and can be damaging to the skin. In the whole body cryotherapy chamber, the skin is never penetrated, yet the body responds on a deeper level, even improving the skin’s overall condition.
