Whole Body Cryosauna (WBC) therapy is the therapeutic application of extremely cold dry air/gas usually between −90°C and −120°C.
Cryotherapy stimulates the body's natural healing abilities and uses extreme cold to induce responses on three levels:
1) the circulatory system
2) the nervous system
3) energy meridians
Treatments take only 2-3 minutes!
Depending on the condition of treatment, it is recommended the patient to take initially take 5 – 10 treatments in close succession (separated by 1-2 days --- 3x/week) to maximize the results. After this initial treatment regiment, patients can take fewer treatments that are spaced further apart to maintain and improve on the results.

Despite extremely low temperatres, cryotherapy
The nitrogen being used to cool the single-person cryosauna is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (actually 78% of it).
In order to protect the more temperature sensitive tissues such as hands and feet, patients wear dry socks, slippers, and gloves.
During each session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make person feel good and energetic
