Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities through exposure to extreme cold. WBC was developed by 1978 by Dr. Yamouchi in Japan as a treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis. In 1984, the German Rheumatologist, Professor Reinhard Fricke, brought Whole Body Cryotherapy to Europe, where it became increasingly popular. Over the past three decades it gained even more popularity as it’s performance enhancing and general health and wellness benefits have become more well known.
Today many professional athletes among all sports use WBC to improve recovery time and celebrities use it for overall wellbeing including its ability to help with many things like weight-loss and collagen elastin.
Everyone’s needs are different, and at XtremeCryo you can find the best treatment plan for you by consulting any of our technicians.
Cold applications have become the most important form of passive physical therapy in sports medicine.
