Whole-body cryotherapy was introduced in Japan in 1978 and subsequently worldwide. Cryotherapy is the whole-body use of extremely cold temperatures in therapy (-120° to-240°F). The term “cryotherapy” comes from the Greek words” cryo” meaning cold and “therapy” meaning cure. Cryotherapy treatment offers you better health and a faster recovery from injury. These benefits start with the reduction of inflammation, pain relief, and improved mobility. The cryotherapy process decreases cellular metabolism, increases cellular survival, decreases inflammation, decreases pain and spasm. In the cold temperatures, the blood vessels quickly constrict forming a protective layer while the core body temperature is maintained. The process naturally stimulates blood circulation as the body’s hormone, immune, and nervous systems are activated.
