What Is Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC)?
WBC is the process of using liquid nitrogen to hypercool the body for three minutes – similar to how athletes use ice baths or how you would ice a sprained ankle.

In addition to muscle recovery, cold therapy also helps reduce inflammation. As the skin’s surface cools, blood flow decreases, which leads to a reduction in swelling. Another effect of this cooling is the tightening of the skin, however the most interesting thing about cold therapy is that it can slow the metabolism of your cells. This means your cells use less oxygen, which allows them to live longer.
The facial increases blood circulation to produce a tighter, more even skin tone. This procedure can produce a myriad of benefits that range from calming inflamed acne to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles with an increase in collagen production. Benefits include:
- Relaxes irritated skin
- Reduces pore size
- Raises collagen production
- Relieves pain
- Aids muscle healing
- Reduces inflammation
The infrared sauna is similar to a traditional sauna, but it uses infrared light to heat you directly instead of heating the air. The result is a much more comfortable experience. Saunas help rid the body of toxins while cleansing the skin with excess sweating, increase circulation to facilitate better recovery, release heat shock proteins to promote muscle growth due to heat stress, and increase your body’s time to fatigue resulting in increased endurance. Additionally, heat stress causes your body to release the same chemical that causes “the runner’s high.” Saunas are an easy way to boost performance while relaxing.
The infrared band in the spectrum of light is the one that we perceive as heat. It makes the body sweat at lower temperatures than the ones needed for regular convection heated saunas, so people tolerate it better. Because IR penetrates deeper—up to three inches—it mobilizes and burns fat, which not only helps with weight loss but with detoxification as well, since many of the toxins we absorb are surrounded and trapped by fat.
