Cryotherapy has a myriad of benefits including but not limited to better sleep, more energy, decreased inflammation, faster recovery, and can improve chronic illness including:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Lyme Disease
- Anxiety and Mood Disorders
But what exactly is happening to your body during a cryotherapy treatment?
Once the nitrogen gas cooled to -140º C makes contact with your skin, your body recognizes the quick drop in temperature and blood vessels contract, sending blood away from extremities and to your core. Then your body is able to detox toxins and filter then to your kidneys and lymphatic system.
Once your 3 minute cryo treatment is completed, your body begins to warm and sends the oxygenated blood back to the surface skin and extremities. As the muscles and skin are enriched with the purified blood, endorphins are released creating a sense of well-being. You can expect a reduction of stress and anxiety and a a better nights rest.
Enjoy more energy, and less pain and inflammation. You can expect a shorter recovery time from physical activity and an increase in performance. Cryotherapy also helps to boost metabolism by burning 600-800 calories! For best results we recommend at least 2 sessions per week.

Some of our athletes choose to do WBC after their training sessions to recover quicker from the delayed onset of muscle soreness. This serves as an amazing advantage for building and repairing the muscle.
There are competitive body builders, fitness models, wrestlers and boxers to name a few, that use WBC to drop weight for their class or remove the body of water retention before a competitive weigh in or stage competition to reveal a more vascular physique. Whatever your sport, WBC is right for you.

More than 23.5 million Americans are affected by autoimmune disorders in which the body attacks its own healthy cells. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a natural and drug free therapy that is becoming more and more prevalent in the health care industry. In fact cryotherapy dates as far back at 2,000 years ago as it was used by ancient times to help with treating ailments caused by inflammation.
Regular sessions of WBC can offer near-instant pain relief and reduced inflammation throughout the body. Some of the most common auto immune disorders include: rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes. During WBC, the nervous system sends signals to the body to determine what areas are in need of healing. The brain receives the message and malfunctions are repaired to stop the destruction of healthy cells. Early detection of autoimmune disorder is helpful along with early treatment being crucial in order to slow down the damage within the body. Whole body cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to cool a cryosauna down to chilling temperatures of -274 degrees Fahrenheit or colder. The cryotechnician is able to adjust these temperatures to best meet the individual needs of each patient. Some patients find that -170 º F is all they need to feel the effects of the WBC treatment! The aim is to achieve a rapid systemic response from the body that can help diminish pain and inflammation. You enter the cryosauna in just your underwear and protective footwear and gloves.
Liquid nitrogen is released into the cryosauna in short bursts. This dry gas evaporates very quickly, making the experience immensely cold but tolerable. After just two to three minutes, your session is complete. Your body warms up quickly after stepping out of the cryosauna, leaving you feeling happy and energized.
While some people experience results after just one session, optimal results can be achieved by undergoing three or more sessions within a one week period. Everyone’s body is different, but most individuals with autoimmune problems find substantial relief that lasts for several weeks.
During the WBC session your brain will detect a state of hypothermia. The brain immediately goes into a state of FIGHT or FLIGHT mode. In this mode the body will operate to preserve the vital life saving organs because the brain is instructing the body to survive as if it would if we were standing on the top of Mount Everest for an extended period of time. The body rushes all of its blood to the core of the body where all of the vital organs are located. After the end of the 3 minute WBC session the brain detects that the threat to the body’s survival conditions has been eliminated and the body may begin to operate in its state of REST and DIGEST mode. In this state the body begins to operate per usual and begins to pump back to the extremities all of the oxygenated blood (that was once deoxygenated and full of inflammatory byproducts such as prostaglandins otherwise known as the pain producing component of many inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, etc.) With the extremities now full of fresh oxygenated blood the skin, muscles and bones/joints are now recovering in a happy state of nourished bliss. This is why we have so many happy patients/clients reveal to us their success stories with inflammatory diseases (anything that ends in an itis) as well as feeling young as they did in their early teens/twenties. Not only does WBC assist in proper nutrition to the extremities and skin but it also helps in anti-aging as well cellulite reduction!
