Clinical studies and Information

Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) involves short exposures to air temperatures below −100°C. This activates the body’s natural healing abilities and releases different hormones and enzymes in the process.

The history of whole body cryotherapy (WBC) originates from Japan in 1978 when Dr Yamaguchi started using freezing treatments of short duration on his patients skin to treat rheumatoid arthritis for pain relief purposes. The same principle was then used in Europe where ”Cryocabins” were developed to treat the whole body more efficiently.
