Invented in 1978 by a Japanese Rheumatologist for the treatment of arthritis, cryotherapy has been established through decades of studies as a powerful treatment for auto-immune disorders. More recently, it has become popular as a means of athletic recovery and increasing physical performance. It is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative for individuals seeking faster recovery and improved overall health.
Cryotherapy is the bodyâ€™s exposure to subzero temperatures used to promote a natural anti-inflammatory response providing relief from aches and pains. It accelerates the production of collagen that not only improves skin elasticity but is the number one protein the body uses to repair all muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Additionally, Cryotherapy triggers a release of endorphins, boosts the bodyâ€™s metabolic rate and can improve sleep.
