As CoastCryo Health provides Costa Mesa Cryotherapy patients with Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), there’s a whole new meaning to the phrase just chillin’.   

Used as early as the 17th century, Cryotherapy is the broad-spectrum use of low temperatures in medical therapy. The term “cryotherapy” comes from the Greek word cryo meaning cold, and therapy meaning cure.

By using the WBC process – in  which a patient is placed in a cryogenic chamber for a short period of time ranging from one-and-a-half to three-minutes – a patient’s body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-200°F to -240°F). 

The process significantly lowers a Costa Mesa Cryotherapy patients’ skin surface temperature and stimulates receptors, thus triggering a Central Nervous System reaction and causing the release of endorphins. 

This therapeutic procedure was first used in 1978 as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis in Japan. Studies conducted in Europe since that time have established WBC as being a dominant restorative technique for reducing inflammation and treating injuries. 

Although WBC originated in the Land of the Rising Sun, it was a group of Polish scientists who built on the idea and turned Whole Body Cryotherapy into the physical therapy solution it is today. In May 2000, the Olympic rehabilitation center opened in Spala, Poland and since then it has been used as an injury rehabilitation and training center for many world class athletes. Today, professional athletes around the world have come to understand that WBC is an effective means to reduce recovery time and improve athletic performance.

In the CryoChamber, Costa Mesa Cryotherapy patients are protected with socks, slippers and gloves. Clothing worn during the treatment is minimal. Coverings are optional for women, while cotton underwear must be worn by men to protect their private parts. The CryoChamber is lowered to a temperature ranging from −200°F to −240 °F. During the 1.5-minute to 3-minute session, the average skin temperature will drop to 50°F (10°C), while the coldest your skin temperature can get is 32°F (0°C). The patients’ core body temperature will remain unchanged during the WBC process. However, it may drop slightly for a brief period after the therapy session.
