THREE Main Reasons so Many Elite Athletes are Turning to Cryotherapy
If you’re a serious athlete who follows sports closely, you’ve probably seen news articles or videos recently talking about a new form of COLD THERAPY that top athletes are flocking to now to maintain peak performance. It’s called Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), and the reason so many athletes are doing it is very simple… IT WORKS AWESOME!
Elite athletes like Lebron James, Michael Phelps, Floyd Mayweather, Kobe Bryant, Novak Djokovic, Christiano Ronaldo, and Alberto Salazar to name a few, all use Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) to ensure their bodies continue to perform at the HIGHEST POSSIBLE LEVEL.
1. Reduced Recovery Time
Any serious athlete understands the importance of recovery. The faster you recover, the harder you can train and the faster you will achieve gains.
When used consistently, the anti-inflammatory and rejuvenative benefits of WBC will cut your recovery time in HALF.
For athletes who train at high intensity, we recommend WBC after your toughest workouts and any time your body starts to feel run down. Recovery benefits are realized EVERY TIME you do WBC.
2. Improved Performance
The rejuvenating effects of WBC can have a DRAMATIC impact on performance as well, allowing you to push harder and longer after a session.
To improve performance, we recommend WBC the day before or a few hours prior to a tough workout or competition.
Typically the morning after WBC is when your body will feel and perform its best.
3. Return from Injury or Surgery
How does your body heal?… Through your blood and circulation! WBC stimulates your body to super charge your blood with oxygen, hormones, enzymes and other nutrients that are crucial to the healing process. Once your WBC session is over, this super charged blood flows through your entire body, turbo-charging your body’s natural healing process.
In our experience, rehab times can be cut by as much as 50% from sports related injuries or surgeries with consistent use of WBC. If you want to get back into action faster after an injury or surgery, WBC is DEFINITELY the answer!
For sports injuries or post surgery clients, we recommend WBC at least 3-4 times a week until a satisfactory result is achieved. Typically within just one week, you will see a NOTICEABLE improvement in your healing process.

How does Whole Body Cryotherapy work?
WBC is the immersion of your body into an extremely cold dry environment (-200+ F) for a duration of up to 3 minutes. This process tricks your body into Emergency Survival Mode. When in this state, your body then starts to super fortify your blood with oxygen, andrenaline, endorphines, hormones, enzymes and other nutrients to ensure its survival. After exiting the cold environment, that super-fortified blood rushes throughout your body for the next 24 -48 hours causing a powerful healing and regenerative effect. The cold environment also offers a powerful anti-inflammatory effect that is crucial for athletes.
