In a nutshell, the answer to what is cryotherapy is that it is the process of exposing the body to cold temperatures in order to achieve a variety of health benefits, including relieving pain and muscles spasm, promoting muscle recovery, providing anti-aging benefits, encouraging weight loss, improving overall health…even relieving anxiety and depression.*
Athletes have been using cryotherapy for decades – if you’ve seen a pro ballplayer soaking his/her body in a cold tub, or icing down an injury, then you’ve seen a rudimentary form of cryotherapy in action. Over the last few years, however, non-athletes have been begun participating in the benefits of cryotherapy as well.
Over the years, cryotherapy procedures have become much more advanced. At CryoRecovery Savannah, we use the most advanced form of cryotherapy – Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC). Patients step into our full-body chamber where their skin is exposed to temperatures below 200 degrees Fahrenheit for about three to four minutes. This extreme temperature activates the body’s natural healing processes and provides significant long-term medical and cosmetic benefits.
In fact, Cryotherapy is endorsed by many numerous professionals, including doctors, professional athletes, trainers, Dr. Oz, The Doctors TV Show, and ESPN. Cryotherapy provides a natural, safe, non‐invasive therapeutic program to aid in performance and recovery, pain and inflammation, and health and wellness by promoting and stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
So whether you’re an athlete seeking better recovery and performance, or a non-athlete looking for better general overall health, we invite you to come and experience this unique treatment for yourself. Cryotherapy is now used across the globe by those young and old, including celebrities and many professional athletes.
