Cryotherapy is defined as body cooling for therapeutic purposes. Whole body cryotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves exposure to extremely cold dry air (usually below -170°F) in an environmentally controlled chamber for short periods of time (typically between 2 and 3 minutes). The skin surface temperature is reduced to approximately 40°F. During these exposures, clients wear minimal clothing, gloves, and dry slippers and socks. Although it was originally developed to treat chronic medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, WBC is being increasingly employed by athletes and individuals attempting to promote whole body wellness. Cryotherapy has been linked to increased blood circulation, an enhanced immune system, decreased fatigue, accelerated injury recovery, and, due to an analgesic reaction in neural pathways, improved sleep patterns and even an elevated sense of cognitive abilities and improved mood. The reactionary process your body goes through of sending blood to your core can burn 300-500 calories in just 2-3 minutes!
