Whole Body Cryotherapy

$45 per Session

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the process of exposing the body to ultra-low temperatures (-130F to -190F) in a controlled environment for a limited amount of time. This action stimulates receptors, activating a Central Nervous System response and causing causes a release of endorphins. The body immediately begins sending blood from your arms, legs, skin, muscles, and joints into your core to protect the vital organs. As blood travels to the core it passes through the heart, lungs, and liver where it is cleansed of inflammatory properties, toxins, and metabolic wastes and then resupplied with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. This rapid cleansing of the blood eliminates a tremendous amount of inflammation and provides your skin, muscles, and joints with hyper-enriched blood.

HOW DOES WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY WORK?

After the session, the body immediately begins to reheat itself, increase circulation, and decrease inflammation by clearing toxins, lactic acid and metabolic waste. The new supply of oxygenated blood stimulates cellular regeneration. Many notice an after-burn effect in which they metabolize additional calories. WBC treatments have been adopted by elite athletes and professional sports teams for muscle recovery and injury prevention

YOUR CRYOTHERAPY SESSION

The Cryo attendant will answer any questions you have about the process prior to entering the cryosauna. All first time users will start at Level 1 for up to 3 minutes and the attendant will monitor your comfort level through out the session. The extreme temperature will force blood to your core where it will enriched with more oxygen and nutrients.

Upon leaving the sauna most guests report feeling exhilaration from the cold and release of endorphins triggered by the sympathetic nervous systems reaction to extreme cold. As your body rewarms itself in a process called thermogenesis you will burn 600-800 calories. Oxygen and nutrient rich blood will provide you with increased energy and decreased inflammation. You are now ready for high performance!
