In 1978, Dr. Toshima Yamaguchi developed Whole Body Cryotherapy in Japan originally to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Soon after, the medical community began to recognize the benefits of using Whole Body Cryotherapy beyond treating arthritis.
Unlike when you go outside on a cold day, Whole Body Cryotherapy is a dry process. This means that the cold will not penetrate the body in the same way cold air with moisture would. Instead, the temperatures are much colder than what would be possible on a normal winter day without experiencing extreme discomfort.
During a session, clients wear minimal protective clothing (gloves, socks, and briefs). For a 2-3 minute session, you will be placed in our Whole Body Cryochamber, JUKA, where your skin will be exposed to extreme cold temperatures ranging between -166°F to -320°F. The temperature is regulated by the automated system but can also be adjusted by the operating technician via our touchscreen control panel. Clients will continually be in verbal in visual communication with our cryo-technicians throughout the process.
By exposing your body to these extreme temperatures, this triggers the body’s natural healing mechanisms as though it were freezing. Blood will accumulate in the body’s core, and your capillaries will expand approximately four times their normal diameter. White blood cells will flow through your body faster, potentially accelerating the healing process by up to 50%. By increasing the rate at which blood circulates through the body, it can maximize the rate at which soft tissues and joints can heal.
This innovative, exhilarating recovery and wellness therapy, is used worldwide for pain and inflammation, and recovery from injuries. Compared to a traditional ice bath, Whole Body Cryotherapy is a much safer, healthier, and effective form of treatment. Some of the potential benefits a client may experience include: an increase in energy, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, an increase in metabolism, revitalized skin, and an overall system self-healing, as well as relief from soft tissue pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia, and psoriasis among many other benefits.
Cryosauna Dress Code
The unit is equipped with an electric lift used to adjust a client’s height in the chamber so that the body is submerged in the hypercooled air up to the neck while the head remains above.This enables the client to be in continuous communication with the technician, which improves the client’s overall comfort.
For added safety, Criomed Cryochamber comes standard with with a non-locking pivoting door that can be opened at any time. The unit features a heated ventilating system to minimize moisture residues and to vent out used nitrogen gasiform air. The geometric design of the inner cabin optimizes convection of cryotherapy temperatures for improved session results.
