Whole Body Cryotherapy has actually been in use for decades. The first Whole Body Cryotherapy(WBC) chamber was created in Japan in the late 1970s for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The treatment was not introduced to Europe until the late 1980s and over the course of the last two decades, studies have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory injuries and disorders. Whole Body Cryotherapy was introduced in the United States in the last decade.
What is Chill + Heal Whole Body Cryotherapy
How does it differ from the practice of ice baths? An ice bath is typically a 10 – 15 minute soak in ice water that causes the blood from your extremities to move to your core and lower the body’s temperature. Whole Body Cryotherapy is typically a 2 – 3 minute dry, cold session where the top skin layers and cold receptors respond to the cold temps by lowering the skin surface temperature by 30 to 50 degrees. This triggers the bodies blood to move from your extremities to the core.
