The word “Cryotherapy” is derived from the Greek “Cryo” (cold) and “Therapy” (cure). Cryotherapy can be a Whole Body Treatment, Localized Treatment or CryoFacial Treatment, that we conduct and monitor at extremely low temperatures.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a systemic anti-inflammatory treatment involving skin exposure to ultra-low temperatures usually around -110ºC to -140ºC for a brief, controlled time of 2-3 minutes.
Our JUKA Whole Body Cryotherapy Chambers use state-of-the-art Cryotherapy technology. During the treatment your body enters the Cold Chamber from the neck down, and is safely exposed to nitrogen vapor, creating numerous beneficial physiological responses.
During this process, blood vessels rapidly constrict (vasoconstriction) to keep the bodies core temperature unchanged while the average skin temperature drops to 60°F. The extreme cold provokes an analgesic effect through the release of endorphins.
Once outside the chamber, the body returns to a normal temperature and the blood vessels dilate (vasodilation). Blood circulation can be dramatically improved, and the distribution of oxygen and nutrients throughout the entire body is also improved.
Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatments have been known to release endorphins and feelings of euphoria, creating an analgesic effect that can reduce pain and swelling throughout the entire body.
Cold therapy has been widely used to treat sports related injuries, improve athletic performance, recover faster between workouts or just have increased overall health and wellness.
Whole Body Cryotherapy has been proven over three decades to be a powerful therapy that has become the treatment of choice for many professional athletes and sports enthusiasts.
