Whole body cryotherapy is administered through the cryosauna and exposes the body to ultra low temperatures (-250 to -280F) for 1 to 3 minutes. This modality was developed in 1978 in Japan for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Continued research over the past two decades has advanced WBC to what it is today. Professional athletes have discovered WBC to reduce recovery time and increase performance. It is effective in weight loss.When the skin reaches the low temperatures in the cryosauna, the body reacts by speeding up metabolism to ensure protection. This means a calorie burn of 500-800 calories. The stimulation of collagen production also occurs and this means healthier, clearer and tighter skin.
