Whole Body Cryotherapy What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is an innovative, holistic wellness solution that enables the human body to recover and rejuvenate itself naturally. During cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures (for 1-3 minutes) to trigger the body’s most powerful mechanisms of self-protection, self-recovery and self-rejuvenation. How Does Cryotherapy Work?Exposure to extremely cold temperatures stimulates thermoreceptors in the skin, activating a central nervous system (CNS) response. This results in your brain and CNS drawing blood from the periphery to the body’s core, circulating the blood through its vital organs. While circulating through the vital organs in the body’s core, the blood is enriched with red blood cells, oxygen and other essential nutrients and enzymes, while toxins and metabolic waste are broken down and removed. Once the cryotherapy session is complete, the enriched blood flows back to the body’s periphery where it promotes reduced inflammation, healing and recovery and boosts energy levels, mood and metabolic rates.Benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy Sports & FitnessAccelerates muscle recoveryIncreases energyReduces muscle soreness & inflammationRelieves tendonitis painQuicker recovery time from injuriesImproves muscle strength and joint function Health & WellnessIncreases blood circulationQuicker recovery time from surgeries & PTRelieves soreness, back pain & spasmsAlleviates symptoms from:Rheumatoid & OsteoarthritisFibromyalgiaPsoriasis & eczemaMigraine headaches Mind, Mood & BeautyAccelerates weight lossIncreases metabolism & burns caloriesPromotes better quality sleepIncreases collagen & reduces celluliteReduces skin blemishesIncreases endorphin levels & boosts moodPromotes tighter, healthier skin & complexionTHE CRYOTHERAPY PROCESS AT THRIVE CRYOSTUDIOINFO Our Recovery Specialist will gather basic info and help you tailor a custom cryotherapy plan to meet your needs.PREPARE Once in the private studio, you’ll remove all outer garments and jewelry in preparation for the cryotherapy session.CRYOTHERAPY Once inside the cryotherapy unit, our Recovery Specialist will begin your session towards recovery and rejuvenation.BENEFITS The entire process from start to finish takes 10-15 mins.
