​Medical experts agree that chronic inflammation is one of your body's worst enemies.  Inflammation is now believed to be at the core of developing many diseases associated with aging and disability, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer's.  Whole Body Cryotherapy is an important tool for health primarily due to its proven ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body.

Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment is ideal for overall health and wellness.  The outer surface of the skin is lowered to nearly 32 degrees F for 2-3 minutes.  The small blood vessels and capillaries in the skin and muscles undergo severe vasoconstriction followed by severe vasodilation. This causes toxins in the body to be expelled, and signals the brain to release highly beneficial biochemicals into the bloodstream.   The body has basically moved into repair mode to counteract the perception of danger.



The exposure to the extreme cold tricks the body into thinking that it is in hypothermia, causing it to increase metabolic rate and protect the core.  Although the body is not at risk, this process causes the body to “burn” between 500-800 calories.  Most clients notice a sound night’s sleep and the release of endorphins into the body leaves many clients with an immediate feeling of being energized.
