Refreshing cold that awakens your body's natural healing abilities.
HOW IT WORKS
Whole body cryotherapy is a non-invasive cooling treatment that activates the nervous system so your body can do what it does best: recover, repair, and restore. This therapy uses dry cold and exposes the body to temperatures between -249°F -321°F for 3 minutes. When the body is surrounded by dry cool nitrogen, the skin sends a signal to the brain that promotes the blood to rush back to vital organs.
This causes the blood to circulate, flushing out unwanted toxins and enriching it with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. The term cryotherapy comes from the Greek words cryo meaning "cold" and therapy meaning "cure." At the end of the 2-3 minute treatment, the body slowly begins to raise its core temperature back to normal and nutrient-rich blood recirculates back out to the hands and feet.
