Whole Body Cryotherapy
In order for athletes to become bigger, faster, and stronger, they must train harder. And in order to train harder, you have to recover faster from both workouts and injuries. Whole Body Cryotherapy allows the body to release anti-inflammatory proteins and many muscle-repairing chemicals to heal faster and get you in the game!
Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness that dates back to ancient civilizations. Whole body cryotherapy is the modern experience which stimulates the same rejuvenating and refreshing benefits at a whole new level of cold – in just three minutes.
Designed to compliment health and wellness initiatives. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the process of exposing the body to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -250 F) in a controlled environment for a limited amount of time. The individual enters a Nitrogen-cooled cryogenic sauna or chamber for 1-3 minutes, which lowers the skin surface temperature significantly. This action stimulates receptors, activating a Central Nervous System response and causing a release of endorphins.
After the session, the body immediately begins to reheat itself, increase circulation, and decrease inflammation by clearing toxins, lactic acid and metabolic waste. The new supply of oxygenated blood stimulates cellular regeneration.
