What is Cryo?

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC)

It may seem like a science-fictional method of treating a variety of maladies, but in truth, this innovative pain treatment, which uses localized chilling temperatures to sooth irritated nerves, is one of the most effective ways to reduce symptoms associated with a variety of chronic conditions.

Whole Body Cryotherapy, first utilized in Japan in 1978, significantly treats skin conditions and lesions, improves recovery time for athletes, decreases pain and spasms, and also aids in weight loss.

When the extreme chill reaches the skin, the brain perceives the body to be in life-threatening conditions, the natural response is thermal regulation, which forces it to activate a barrage of survival mechanisms. This reaction improves blood circulation,  providing tissues with adequate nutrients and much-needed oxygen, while also stimulating the body’s ability to eliminate toxins.

John and Sarah try Whole Body Chrotherapy for the first time.
