CryoMax utilizes Whole Body Cryotherapy to provide a natural, safe, non-invasive and effective therapeutic treatment to aid in inflammation and pain reduction, athletic performance and recovery, as well as aesthetic and wellness benefits. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) has been endorsed by many doctors and has been featured on the Dr. OZ show and The Doctors. Professional, as well as collegiate, athletes are incorporating this technology into their training and rehabilitation programs as seen on ESPN and The Golf Channel. With WBC, the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-210 to -250 F). The patient steps into the chamber for a duration up to 3 minutes, which lowers skin temperature and stimulates the release of pain reducing endorphins. The body’s core temperature remains unchanged as the blood rushes to the core to protect the vital organs. The result of this extreme cold is rapid vasoconstriction of the blood vessels followed by rapid vasodilation. The blood that returns to the body is highly oxygenated, which helps the body repair and strengthen itself as well as increase competitive stamina.
Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) originated in Japan in 1978 for rheumatoid arthritis. This treatment expanded into Poland by scientists who began using it as a physical therapy tool. These scientists realized that not only was WBC an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, many other areas of the body responded to this therapy with positive results.
