Whole Body Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy which triggers the body’s natural fight or flight response to promote healing on both internal and external levels, resulting in comprehensive long-lasting physical and aesthetic benefits. After just 2-3 minutes of exposure to the extreme cold, you will notice a boost in energy, relief of muscle and/or joint pain, and many other positive benefits.
Whole Body Cryotherapy, or WBC, is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness which dates back to ancient civilizations. WBC as we know it today was developed in 1978 by Dr. Toshima Yamauchi to treat rheumatoid arthritis. WBC uses a temperature range of -90 Celsius (-130ºF) to -120 Celsius (-184ºF) to hyper cool the body for 2 to 3-minutes — similar to how athletes use ice baths, or how you would ice a sprained ankle. There are various modern applications of cryotherapy including cryo facials, localized cryotherapy, and whole body cryotherapy, which is currently the most popular form of cryo.
WHAT DOES A CRYO SESSION ENTAIL?
During the cryo session, you’re exposed to ultra-low temperatures from the shoulders down. Your skin’s surface temperature is lowered by 30-50 degrees and activates the body’s natural fight-or-flight response. The cold sensation stimulates the skin’s receptors to constrict the blood vessels and rush blood back to the body’s core, where it is oxygenated and enriched.
Upon exiting the cryosauna your blood vessels dilate, sending (at lightning speed) supercharged blood full of anti-inflammatory proteins, endorphins, and oxygen throughout your body. This process accelerates the rate of tissue repair and reduces inflammation while boosting the body’s metabolic rate resulting in a residual weight loss of 500-800 calories in the 5 hours post-session. Furthermore, the cold experienced in the Cryosauna affects only the skin temperature, 1/2 millimeter deep, and does not reduce the body’s internal temperature.

Cryotherapy was initially invented to assist with arthritis. By reducing inflammation in the joints and muscles, allows you to live with much less pain. Many medical studies have been confirmed for Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Ankylosing Spondylitis.
Cryotherapy stimulates endorphins that interact with your brain, leaving you with a positive and energetic feeling. Your brain also gets an extra infusion of oxygen-rich blood that heightens your awareness and helps you feel more focused.
Cryotherapy promotes blood circulation that gives your cells the powerful push they need to nourish your skin. Your blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, boosting collagen production and giving you that youthful glow.
After consistent, regular Cryotherapy sessions, people have reported that they start to experience a better night’s sleep. REJUUV may be just what you need to help relieve your insomnia.
Cryotherapy increases the feel-good hormone serotonin and decreases the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Thus, it may provide a safe and natural way of boosting mood and reducing stress symptoms.
Studies have shown that you can burn an additional 500+ calories following a whole body cryotherapy session. This can aid you in your weight-loss goals.
WHAT’S THE PROCESS, AND HOW CAN I FREEZE?
You’ll undress to your level of comfort and put on your cryo safe garb – a nice, fluffy robe, booties, thermal socks, and gloves.
Before the session, the tech will pre-cool the cryosauna. Once complete, they’ll help you enter the cryosauna, close the door, and let you to (modestly!) disrobe.
As the session begins, you’ll feel the cold, dry, nitrogen vapor surrounding you. Your tech will be there the entire time. You’ll rotate, dance, wiggle… anything to keep your mind off the chill.
You may hear a beeping sound every 31 seconds – don’t be alarmed! The cryosauna is alerting your tech to click the “okay” button to keep the session going and is implemented to ensure your safety.
Pretty soon, the 3 minutes are up and tada!..your session is over! Congrats, you’ve now experienced cryo! That wasn’t so bad now, was it?
