What is Cryotherapy ?
Whole Body Cryotherapy was first used in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatic diseases, where was studied and established as a powerful treatment for pain and inflammation associated with a number of many chronic conditions. Over the next three decades it quickly spread to Europe and other countries, as it became widely known for its broad range of benefits. Now is becoming popular in the United States.
How does it work ?
Whole Body Cryo-therapy is a hyper-Cooling process that exposes your skin to extremely cold temperatures (-170 ̊F to -280 ̊F) for up to 3 minutes. This triggers the body’s natural healing process and results in numerous Health Benefits.
How often should I do Cryotherapy?
It is recommended that clients have 10 treatments within thirty days and then 1-2 treatment per week to maintain.
