Cryotherapy literally means cold therapy and it is anything but new. First use of cold therapy goes as far back as 2500 BCE when the Egyptians used it to treat injuries and inflammation. Modern day cryotherapy can be traced to 1989 in Japan where Professor Yamauchi used a chamber to treat the effects of rheumatism in his patients. Today, Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is used by premiere clubs and athletes all around the world to enhance the after sports recovery, reduce inflammation and prevent injuries. In addition, cryotherapy has demonstrated to also have anti-analgesic, anti-oxidant effects as well as improve blood circulation, mood and sleep, speed up the metabolism, strengthen the immune system and rejuvenate the skin.
In recent years, research has been more focused on the number and frequency of sessions to be applied to maximise results depending on the targeted goals.
