Cryotherapy Treatment in Chicago

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a HYPERcooling process that reduces musculoskeletal pain, inflammation, elevates your basal metabolic rate (burns calories) and enhances sports performance.

Starting in 1978, Dr. Yamauchi, a leading rheumatologist in Japan, began testing of extreme cold therapy for his patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. In a short period of time, he came to the conclusion short-term hyper-cooling of the skin’s surface created a tidal wave release of endorphins unlike the response obtained from the gradual cooling experienced in an ice bath. Additional research completed in Europe over the past three decades has confirmed WBC (whole body cryotherapy) as a powerful and effective means for treating chronic pain syndromes (neck and low back pain) and sports injuries. 

Cryotherapy Treatment

Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are delivered in a Cryosauna. The cryosauna diffuses liquid nitrogen into gas which is circulated around your body, rapidly cooling the surface of your skin by as much 30°- 40° F. Cryotherapy is a safe, dry, non-invasive procedure which never lasts more than 180 seconds (3 minutes). Our TITAN CryoCabin, circulates hyper-cooled air around your body at temperatures as low as  -280° F. This rapid exposure to two or three minutes of extreme cold activate and accelerate your body’s natural healing processes: stimulating an increase in organ regulatory function, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, increasing energy levels and overall systemic self-healing.

Health/Anti-aging Benefits

The sudden change in temperature caused by Whole Body Cryotherapy stimulates the body to increase your core metabolic rate AND stimulates collagen production. 

After your cryotherapy session, your brain signals the rest of your body to push blood to your core to increase your body heat which leads to an increase in your basal metabolic rate. The enriched and re-heated blood rushes back out to the rest of your body, which perfuses your body with increased oxygen, nutrients and enzymes found in your heart, lungs, and liver. This effort requires a considerable amount of energy and forces your body to burn more calories. Following regular and consistent cryotherapy sessions, your body will burn the same amount as you would swimming for an hour, or running for up to 45 minutes continuously. The increased energy burn means you will use an extra 500-800 calories in the 8-10 hours after your cryotherapy session.

Collagen is the protein that makes up most of your muscles, bone, and skin. It’s the foundation for everything that holds us together. Collagen is also the main ingredient necessary for improved skin elasticity, more elastic skin, fewer wrinkles. As we age and our collagen also ages and dries out, leading to less elasticity and more noticeable wrinkles. People often try wrinkle creams and anti-aging supplements like retinol. Both of these products work on your existing collagen while cryotherapy helps your body make NEW, younger and more elastic collagen.
