Whole Body Cryotherapy
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy originated in Japan in 1978 as a treatment option for those with serious cases of rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation and muscle pain/fatigue. Due to its high level of success, it quickly spread to Europe (where it is covered by medical insurance) becoming a staple for trainers, athletes, and physical therapists. Today, it has spread throughout the United States, and is becoming a popular, natural treatment for a variety of problems.
Whole body cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness. The modern cryotherapy experience is better than ever! By using extremely dry air, the cold temperatures are tolerated extremely well and the user experiences all of the rejuvenating and refreshing benefits – in just three minutes. Reaching temperatures as low as around -300 degrees F, cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. Cryotherapy users say they experience a multitude of benefits offering a new option to promote mental and physical wellness.

Who Can Benefit?
1. Chronic Pain
Whole Body Cryotherapy as a pain management technique has shown promising results in relieving chronic pain not only for arthritis, fibromyalgia and other rheumatoid diseases, but also due to migraines, muscle soreness, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic pain syndromes. After a series of 5-10 sessions, patients are shown to have decreased pain intensity and frequency with daily activities, improved blood circulation and increased energy levels.
2. Health & Wellness
Cryotherapy also stimulates the vagus nerve, reducing anxiety and fatigue. According to research the vagus nerve is literally the captain of your inner nerve center — the parasympathetic nervous system, to be specific. And like a good captain, it does a great job of overseeing a vast range of crucial functions, communicating nerve impulses to every organ in your body. New research has revealed that it may also be the missing link to treating chronic inflammation, and the beginning of an exciting new field of treatment that leaves medications behind. Stimulation of the vagus nerve also helps reduce anxiety and fatigue.
The term cryotherapy comes from the Greek words cryo, meaning “cold” and therapy, meaning “cure.” Ice packs and ice baths have long been used to reduce swelling and inflammation. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a much faster and more effective way to cool damaged tissue and effectively treat a number of conditions. Recovery from an injury or surgery can be much faster when WBC is utilized in combination with your therapy program. Or for those with an inflammatory overuse injury, such as tendinitis or bursitis, Cryo can interrupt the pain cycle and allow your body to heal.
Professional athletes have been using Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) for years! They understand that faster recovery permits a consistent and frequent training schedule which is central to quicker skill development and performance, and that WBC is THE tool to accelerate recovery.
Athletes seeking maximum performance and competitive fitness advantages should utilize WBC in their training and recovery regimen to help attain their goals. Whether you desire better muscle healing, decreased fatigue, or accelerated recovery time, connect with our trained team members at Restore to try it for yourself.
5. Beauty & Anti-Aging
While the results of cryotherapy can be impressive inside the body, they can be equally as stunning on the surface as WBC tricks body sensors to implement the same response it would if you were freezing, thereby jump-starting the body's natural healing, detoxification and rejuvenation processes. Due to the improvement of circulation as your body works harder to reheat and transport blood, and the rush of oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood back to the surface of the skin following a treatment, many have experienced the following dramatic results.
Reported benefits include the following:
Increased collagen production
Reduced signs of aging
Increased metabolism and weight management benefits
Reduced appearance of cellulite
More youthful complexion
