What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Have you heard of cryotherapy but not sure what it is? It’s a process where your body is exposed to sub-zero temperatures for a few minutes to help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, speed up recovery time after workouts, and more. But how does it work? Let’s dive into what Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is and why people are turning to it.
How Does WBC Work?
During the treatment, you will enter a chamber filled with cold air (-130 to -180 degrees Fahrenheit) for 2 to 3.5 minutes. You will be wearing minimal clothing (generally just a tank top and shorts for women and shorts for men), so your skin can feel the cold. The cold air lowers the skin temperature which triggers your body’s natural response of releasing endorphins and hormones that activate healing processes in the body. This helps improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief from muscle soreness or other injuries. In addition, because the chamber is made up of oxygenated dry air, you won’t experience shivering or goosebumps like you would with an ice bath or immersion technique.
Benefits of WBC
The list of benefits associated with WBC is long – from reducing inflammation and improving circulation to increasing alertness and energy levels, as well as, helping promote mental clarity and emotional balance.. As far as beauty benefits go, WBC helps detoxify skin cells while increasing collagen production leading to improved skin tone and texture over time.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) has become increasingly popular among athletes due to its ability to reduce inflammation in muscles, improve recovery time after workouts, decrease pain from injuries, etc.. However, its benefits extend beyond athletes as this therapy has been found to help with everything from providing emotional balance and mental clarity while promoting healthier looking skin over time!
