About CryoTherapy Plus
CryoTherapy Plus is the only full service whole body cryotherapy center in Ohio. Owner Kim Amity and her staff are committed to providing the latest developments in cryogenics to help their clients exceed their goals in health, peak athletic performance and beauty. This modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted over the last two decades in Europe have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries.
With Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -290 F) for less than 3 minutes. As you enter the cryosauna, the sudden drop in temperature stimulates the cold receptors causing vasoconstriction, prompting the brain to transmit messages throughout the body. When you exit the chamber, blood is pumped vigorously around the body, which in turn enhances the oxygen supply and removal of toxins. The cold also triggers the nervous system to release feel-good endorphins. The body's natural anti-inflammatory reaction to extreme cold is pain reduction.
