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.

Arthritis & Fibromyalgia

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.


Autoimmune disorders

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.
