Whole Body Cryotherapy is a cold therapy used to reduce inflammation. The use of cold as a healing modality dates back to early 2500 BC, when the Egyptians used it to treat injuries and fight inflammation. Whole Body Cryotherapy in its current use today originated back in Japan in 1978. Soon after getting polarizing results form arthritis patients, the amazing therapy was adopted by European soccer and rugby players where it became standard practice in their locker rooms.
With Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) ultra low temperatures ranging from, (-170F to -250F) are released onto the body. It’s during this quick 1:30 to 3 minute session that inflammation is systematically reduced all over the body. After several consecutive sessions inflammation is reduced to the point where many individuals notice beneficial results. After the initial sessions, doing just 2-3 sessions per week can aid in the proper recovery needs for a healthy lifestyle.
Today Cryotherapy is being used by thousands of gym users and those participating in athletic activities. It’s also commonly being adopted by those seeking out pain relief from new and or chronic nagging injuries. Professional sports teams all over the U.S. have adopted Cryotherapy as a recovery method. Professional sports biggest stars Lebron James (NBA) Jordan Spieth (PGA) Christian Ronaldo (Soccer) Michael Phelps (Olympics) Jake Arrieta (MLB) and JJ Watt (NFL) are using Cryotherapy as part of their recovery regiment and lifestyle.
Practically speaking, staying strong and active has been a lifelong goal. To find a new program, via cryotherapy, that fits into my goals and my lifestyle in just three minutes a session, is a remarkable discovery. I bounce back feeling wonderfully relaxed and energetic. Furthermore, my research of the science behind cryotherapy convinces me that these treatments are a worthwhile commitment.
If you suffer from chronic pain like I do I strongly recommend you try cryotherapy. It has helped me a great deal. Not only has it helped me with my pain issues, but has helped with my energy level as well.
I have had three back surgeries and a neck surgery. Since doing the treatment, I’m taking almost no pain pills. It’s not waco-type science. The Japanese have been doing it for a long time, and the Germans for 30 or 40 years.
