Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) leverages the body’s reaction to cold temperatures. Inflammation is a primary source of chronic pain and delays recovery from injuries and training. A three-minute WBC treatment slows the delivery of white blood cells and inflammatory substance for several days to a week. The body’s natural reaction to the cold is a whole body vasoconstriction that removes lactic acid, inflammation, and metabolites, thereby kick starting the recovery process. WBC also acts on dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin, with most users reporting a comfortable lift in energy and improved rest.
