Cryo Therapy Explained
Cryotherapy, the use of extremely low temperatures for therapeutic benefit, began as early as the 17th century. In 1978, Dr. Yamaguchi of Japan began using freezing sessions of short duration on his patients’ skin surface for immediate relief of rheumatoid arthritis through the rapid decrease of temperature of the outer layer of skin.
In the 1980s Yamaguchi and his associates came to the conclusion that using a cryosauna for rapid short-term freezing of the skin’s surface has a more beneficial effect on the human body than its gradual cooling while immersed in an ice bath. Further study in Europe over the last 3 decades has established WBC as a powerful therapy for, and recovery from, a variety of conditions.
