Whole Body Cryotgerapy is considered one of the most effective physical therapies for rheumatic diseases. The positive effects in relation to the inflammatory process regarding mobility and the lessening of pain have been demonstrated in many studies.
In exercise and professional sports, the positive properties of body cooling can be used to increase
performance and speed recovery. Some athletes report a real kick of adrenaline and an endorphin boost when they visit the cold chamber.
Skin starts to wrinkle and sag with age because it loses collagen. Brief freezing of the outer layer of skin stimulates collagen. As a result, the skin regains elasticity and appears both younger and smoother. Also, the surge in metabolism during WBC consumes 400 to 800 calories, aiding in weight loss.
The term cryotherapy comes from the Greek “cryo” meaning cold and “therapeia” meaning cure. Cryotherapy can be traced back to ancient Greece when it is reported that Hippocrates prescribed the use of ice and snow to treat inflammation and pain.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a process where the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-200 Fahrenheit to -260 degrees Fahrenheit).
The user is placed in a cryogenic chamber for a duration of 1.5 to 3 minutes which lowers the skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates
receptor cells in the body.
Some areas of application:
• Rheumatic diseases
• Sports injuries
• Atopic dermatitis
• Joint and spine diseases
• Chronic pain conditions
Kona Cryo Wellness utilizes the world’s most
advanced, state-of-the-art CryoChambers.
The liquid nitrogen used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with the user’s skin, and in the cryotherapy chamber, the user breathes natural roomair. For added safety, chambers are equipped with an oxygen monitor.
