Cryo With JNJ - Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) The word "Cryotherapy" stems from the Greek words: "cryo" or cold, and "therapeia" or cure. Hence, whole body cryotherapy {WBC) is being studied as a curative and overall beneficial treatment involving skin exposure to extremely low temperatures (below -190°C/ below -310°F) this temperature is only capable in our machine. In Europe this treatment is used as a medical device, The process was invented in 1978 by Toshima Yamauchi, a Japanese medical doctor who was seeking a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.

How Does Cryotherapy Work?

The extreme cold exposure is believed to cause the body to turn up its metabolic rate in order to produce heat. This effect lasts for 24-48 hours after the procedure, causing the body to 'burn' 500 - 800 calories. After several procedures, the increase in metabolic rate tends to last longer between treatments.
Another 'survival reaction' to the extreme temperatures is the release of endorphins (hormones) that have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, and improve mood disorders. WBC has been studied for the successful treatment of medication resistant depressive disorders.
The outer skin is briefly frozen, which is believed to increase production of collagen in deeper layers of the skin, keeping skin looking young and vibrant. Skin vessels and capillaries undergo severe vasoconstriction (to prevent core temperature from dropping), followed by vasodilation after the procedure. Toxins and other stored deposits are flushed out of deeper layers of the skin and blood perfusion is improved after several treatments.
