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. 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.

Infrared Sauna Therapy An infrared sauna is a sauna that uses infrared light to create heat which heats the body directly its core rather than warming the air around you and only heating up skin at the surface. Saunas in general mimic the effects of moderate exercise, an infrared sauna is able to replicate these results at a lower temperature (around 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit) which makes it accessible to people who can’t tolerate the heat of a regular sauna (temperatures are around 200-230 degrees Fahrenheit). In addition, infrared sauna therapy has multiple benefits ranging from reduced joint pain to lowering blood pressure.

Celluma Low Light Therapy Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high-intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. With FDA approval and over a dozen benefits including anti-aging, pain management, and acne treatment, celluma low light therapy helps our clients feel great about their skin again.
