Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a revolutionary method of cold therapy involving 2-3 minutes of exposure to subzero temperatures ranging from -200*F to -300*F. This is not a medical procedure, but a radical, non-invasive option for people seeking exceptional results.
This technique was first developed in Japan in 1978 by Dr. Toshima Yamaguchi to treat rheumatic diseases, where it was studied and established as a powerful treatment for pain and inflammation associated with a number of many chronic conditions. Over the next three decades it quickly spread to Europe and other countries as it became widely known for its broad range of benefits including treatment for soft tissue pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia, skin revitalization and a host of other benefits.”
