Cryo Therapy

Clinical trials have shown that Gainesville Whole Body Cryo therapy increases healthy cellular survival, decreases undesirable cell growth (cellular metabolism), decreases inflammation, decreases pain and spasm and promotes the temporary constriction of blood vessels to control edema. 

Whole Body Cryo therapy, a therapy CryoSauna is cooled with liquid nitrogen, usually to a temperature of −166 °F to −225 °F have been used. 

The patient spends 3 minutes. This therapy triggers the release of endorphins which induce analgesia (immediate pain relief). Patients say that the WBC experience is invigorating and report that it improves a variety of conditions such as psychological stress, insomnia, rheumatism (arthritis), muscle and joint pain, fibromyalgia, itching, and psoriasis. The immediate effect of skin cooling and analgesia lasts for five minutes but the release of endorphins can have a lasting effect, where the pains and signs of inflammation as found in blood tests remain suppressed for weeks. These effects of extreme cold and endorphin release are scientifically studied.
