What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a pain-free therapy that cools the exterior layer of the skin with sub-zero blasts of air in a Cryo Sauna. Clinical studies show immediate benefits to soft tissue, internal organs and the nervous system. Cryo is an innovative approach to looking after your Health & Well Being, improving Athletic Performance as well as supporting Beauty and Longevity.
Cryotherapy was first used by the medical profession in 1978 when Japanese rheumatologist Dr Toshiro Yamaguchi used it to treat patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Since then, Cryo has been widely used by hospitals and clinics throughout Europe as a non-invasive, drug-free alternative treatment.
During a session in our state-of-the-art ‘Juko’ Cryo Therapy chamber your body will be briefly enveloped in a fine nitrogen mist and safely cooled to approximately -130°c for up to 3 minutes. The natural response to the cold is an increase in blood flow to the internal organs and a flooding of the red blood cells with oxygen, nutrients and enzymes. On leaving the Cryosauna, your body temperature rapidly returns to normal releasing the enriched blood back into the skin and muscle tissues for immediate and lasting results.
