What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is an innovative, holistic wellness solution that enables the human body to recover and rejuvenate itself naturally. During cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures (for 1-3 minutes) to trigger the body’s most powerful mechanisms of self-protection, self-recovery and self-rejuvenation.
How does cryotherapy work?
Exposure to extremely cold temperatures stimulates thermoreceptors in the skin, activating a central nervous system (CNS) response. This results in your brain and CNS drawing blood from the periphery to the body’s core, circulating the blood through its vital organs. While circulating through the vital organs in the body’s core, the blood is enriched with red blood cells, oxygen and other essential nutrients and enzymes, while toxins and metabolic waste are broken down and removed. Once the cryotherapy session is complete, the enriched blood flows back to the body’s periphery where it promotes reduced inflammation, healing and recovery and boosts energy levels, mood and metabolic rates.
