WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
The concept of cryotherapy is very similar to that of using ice packs on injuries. In just the same way as a cold compress can speed recovery from pain and soreness, cryotherapy offers healing benefits. With just one session, your metabolism will increase. It will also remove any stagnant toxins from your body. You’ll also have a reduced need for other medications and treatments.
What Is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Sometimes known as WBC, Whole Body Cryotherapy is a treatment that uses very low temperatures to stimulate a bodily response. This treatment cools down the whole surface of a patient’s skin. This stimulates the body’s natural defensive reactions and reflexes. As a result, blood begins to circulate more effectively while the central nervous system and immune system receive a boost.
The Cryo Chamber – An Overview
Whole body cryotherapy immerses the body in a cryo chamber. This is usually between -160 degrees Fahrenheit and -220 degrees Fahrenheit. Usually, the individual remains in the chamber for intervals of two to four minutes.
When entering the cryo chamber, the individual is undressed. He or she does, however, still wear his or her socks and underwear together with gloves. This helps to protect the individual’s extremities.
Why Should I Have Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy is now being used more frequently by elite sportsmen and women around the globe. It can assist in recovery post-training and it can also treat injuries.

How Does Whole Body Cryotherapy Help?
Whole Body Cryotherapy improves the circulation of the blood through the body. This, in turn, improves the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the body’s tissues. It also improves the natural ability of the body to get rid of toxins.
The fundamental change that takes place inside the body because of WBC is a reduction in tissue temperature. This causes the core body temperature to reduce, which, in turn, causes sensory shock. Sensory shock activates the unconscious (or autonomic) nervous system. Norepinephrine levels rise, blood pressure increases, and heart rate begins to vary.
When a person has his or her body cooled down to such extreme temperatures, the blood vessels become constricted. This reduces the blood flow to any inflamed areas. Once the individual leaves the cryo chamber, his or her blood vessels expand. This increases the number of anti-inflammatory proteins in his or her blood.
There are several medical problems that a Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment can effectively improve. These include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Frozen shoulder
- Skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis
- Ligament or muscle strains
- Multiple sclerosis
- Depression and anxiety
- Restless leg syndrome
There is increasing amounts of evidence to show that WBC offers a host of benefits. It has helped in the management of chronic pain. It can also boost energy, aid sleep, and improve mental well-being.
