Many of our clients enjoy the sense of clarity and wellbeing the body's natural endorphin release after cryo provides. Others are using it as a complementary therapy for more serious conditions and pain management.
Cryotherapy originated in Japan as a pain management option for rheumatoid arthritis in 1978. Since then numerous studies have documented its effectiveness when used as adjuvant therapy in accordance with the protocols used in Eastern Europe for both RA and fibromyalgia. While there is still no cure for RA, cryotherapy is a valuable tool for reducing the pain involved and slowing the progression of the disease. Experience and studies also indicate it can facilitate a reduction in drug consumption (dose sparing), and effects of a course of sessions can last from three to six months.
Systemic disorders often manifest through a particular route by which they are diagnosed (RA in joints, Bekhterev’s disease in the spine, multiple sclerosis in the CNS, psoriasis in skin, and Crohn's in the gut) Prof Reinhard Fricke was the first to point out the possibilities of influencing these disorders of the immune system by using whole body cold applications. With his studies on the whole body cold effect on rheumatoid arthritis and Bekhterev’s disease he was able to demonstrate the (modulating) effect of therapy on the behavior of T-lymphocytes and some cytokines and in so doing identify the targets of whole body cryotherapy with autoimmune diseases.
“Let me begin by telling you that I do not tolerate cold! I was certain that these procedures are not for me. I was looking for other ways to relieve my arthritis pain, but did not have much luck. Finally I decided to give it a try. To my surprise it was not bad at all! So far, I took 18 sessions. After about 15 sessions arthritis pain in my left hip was gone! My insomnia was gone!! And so is my chronicle fatigue!! I feel 20 years younger!!”
“.I came here in hopes to find natural relieve from my back pain and pain in my knees. After just 15 sessionss pain in my back and knees not just subsided but completely disappeared. The results are amazing considering that I completely stopped taking medications. I am very happy with the results. I feel great, and I lost 6lb.”
“I've had pain in my knees for about 24 years, to the extent that I was not able to bend my knees at all. Couple years ago I developed frozen shoulders. When I saw a cryo ad I decided to give it a try. I am very excited to share that after the 3rd treatment pain in my joints is gone and it feels only like a slight discomfort. My shoulders move with ease!! And I can bend my knees!! It brings forgotten feeling of freedom of movement to the joints! ”
"I have been a poorly controlled type 1 Diabetic for 15 years. Over the years I have seen countless physicians and specialists, yet my health has steadily declined. That is until I found cryo. After 30 sessions I have experienced changes that I never thought possible. My blood sugar is under control, and the numbers and amount of medication I need continues to drop! I sleep like a rock, have more energy than I’ve had in a decade, and am regaining my life. I am and will be forever grateful for these gifts."."
