Whether you are a pro athlete with a brutal training regimen or you spend your days in a cubicle staring at a screen, optimal health gives you a competitive edge that leaves your rivals in the dust. Physical prowess and mental acuity are prime commodities in today’s competitive climate, and you cannot achieve those if you neglect your health. Clean nutrition, hydration and regular physical activity will all boost and maintain your health, but what if you could unleash a secret weapon to push your health over the top?
Putting the Freeze on Health Problems
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is being embraced by elite athletes and celebrities as a must-have treatment for everything from sore muscles to inflammation to detox. In professions where peak performance, youth and beauty are prized attributes, WBC clients are singing its praises.
Originally developed in Japan in the 1970s to treat rheumatoid arthritis, WBC migrated to Europe and then more recently to the United States. Health practitioners use WBC to treat conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia and ankylosing spondylitis. It has been used as an effective treatment for injured athletes during post-surgical rehab.
WBC enhances athletic performance by reducing inflammation and increasing anaerobic metabolism. Many athletes use WBC post-event to soothe aching muscles and joints, and promote recovery. WBC boosts immune function and raises your basal metabolic rate, facilitating weight loss. WBC has also proven beneficial for patients with skin conditions, multiple sclerosis and depression. A WBC will eliminate brain fog and sharpen your mental acuity.
How It Works
WBC takes place in a chamber called a CryoSauna, where the client is safely and comfortably ensconced. The procedure uses nitrogen gas to rapidly drop the chamber’s temperature to a frigid range of – 220°F to -274°F.
When exposed for two to three minutes of extreme cold, your body responds by shunting blood away from your periphery and to your vital organs, where it stimulates regulatory functions. The result is increased energy, cell renewal, improved immune function and decreased inflammation.
Not Just for the Rich and Famous
WBCs magical properties are no longer the domain of just athletes and movie stars. Cryotherapy clinics are popping up everywhere, as health-conscious people learn of WBC’s benefits. You will step out of your WBC session feeling energized, refreshed and rejuvenated!
Regular WBC sessions have long-term benefits of increasing collagen production, the structural protein that makes your skin strong and elastic. WBC boosts immune function, promotes weight loss and reduces inflammation associated with metabolic disease. WBC is recommended either pre- or post workout to enhance performance and promote recovery. Dancers and fitness professionals will greatly benefit from WBC.
CryoSaunas are found in the training facilities of the NBA, NFL and US Olympic teams, and many athletes and celebrities have CryoSaunas installed in their private homes. However, you do not have to rub shoulders with the rich and famous to enjoy the benefits of WBC!
