For Newport Beach Cryotherapy patients who are looking for a solution that includes short term healing and recovering, Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) by CoastCryo Health is just the answer.

Utilized as early as the 17th century, Cryotherapy is the wide-ranging process of incorporating low temperatures in medical therapy. The word “cryotherapy” comes from the Greek terms for cold and cure.

Through the WBC process – whereby a patient enters a cryogenic chamber for a short amount of time ranging from 1.5 to 3 minutes – a patient’s body is subjected to sub-zero temperatures (-200°F to -240°F). 

The procedure considerably lowers a Newport Beach Cryotherapy patients’ skin surface temperature and stimulates receptors, consequently causing a Central Nervous System reaction and prompting the release of endorphins. 

This restorative process was first used as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis in the Land of the Rising Sun in 1978. Since that time, research done in Europe has established WBC as being a prevailing recuperative method for treating inflammation and attending to injuries. 

Although Whole Body Cryotherapy was initiated in Japan, it was a team of Polish scientists who expounded on the concept and turned WBC into the physical therapy remedy it is today. In May 2000, the Olympic rehabilitation center opened in Spala, Poland and since that time the facility has been used as an injury rehabilitation and training center for many world class athletes. Professional athletes around the world today have come to recognize that WBC is an effective way to decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance.

In the CryoChamber, Newport Beach Cryotherapy patients are protected with socks, slippers and gloves. Clothing worn during the treatment is minimal. For women covering is optional, while men, to protect their private parts, must wear cotton underwear. The CryoChamber is lowered to freezing temperatures from −200°F to −240 °F. During the 1.5-minute to 3-minute cryotherapy session, the average skin temperature will drop to 50°F (10°C), while the coldest a patient’s skin temperature will 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.
