Who developed the cryosauna?

Whole body cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in 1978 by Dr. Yamaguchi and the benefits have been studied and refined in Europe since that time.

How does the cryosauna work?

Our cryosauna works by using nitrogen cooled dry air to expose your body to temperatures from -95 to -210˚F for 2 to 3 minutes. Your body responds by constricting peripheral tissues sending blood from the skin surface, muscle tissue, and surrounding joint space to the vitals to protect core temperature (vasoconstriction). As the blood travels [...]

How does Cryotherapy compare to an ice bath?

WBC treatments result in a very different response from the body. You are simply unable to achieve the same results with an ice bath. After 12-15 minutes of a shockingly cold ice bath the skin temperature only arrives at 41 degrees whereas with 2-3 minutes of whole body cryotherapy the skin temperature gets as low as 30 [...]

How will I feel afterward?

During each session the body releases endorphins, which are your “feel good” hormones. The effects from each session last at least 6–8 hours. As with any new regimen, consistency is key and increased results will be noted with regular use. Many report a higher pain tolerance when exposure is pre-workout, and decreased inflammation is noted [...]
