What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
WBC is the body’s exposure to extreme cold to activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms during a two-three minute session. The exposed skin reacts to the temperature change by sending messages to the brain that stimulate natural regulatory functions of the body, the release of anti-inflammatory molecules, endorphins, toxins, and increases oxygen circulation within the bloodstream.
What to Wear During your Treatment
Suggested clothing options: Underwear, shorts, bra/bathing suit. Less clothing will maximize exposure. If wearing a bra, please be sure there is no metal wire
Remove or cover any jewelry or metal piercings located below your neck
Thermal socks, booties, gloves, and robe will be provided by Ventura Cryo
Local Cryotherapy can be used to target specific areas of the body, delivering the benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy locally. Clients frequently combine this treatment with WBC, to treat specific problem areas.
A Cryofacial™ is a non-invasive, pain-free cold treatment applied to the neck and face during a short session that stimulates a variety of anti-aging benefits.
How does Cryotherapy Compare to an Ice Bath?
Two to three minutes in the Cryosauna, which is a cold, dry nitrogen vapor, is equivalent to 20-30 minutes in an ice bath without the uncomfortable feeling of submerging in ice-cold water. The body reacts to the Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment by releasing anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins resulting in super-charged blood; Ice baths do not supercharge the blood like Cryotherapy.

Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF)
PEMF uses pulsed electromagnetic fields to bathe low energy cells in pure, raw energy. Each cell in your body is actually a capacitor, or battery, which holds a charge. Your entire body is electrical and your cells each need a measurable electrical charge to function optimally. In order to maintain good wellness, cells must be doing their jobs. PEMF Exercise supports the body’s natural abilities to optimize balanced body functions.
What are some Benefits of PEMF?
PEMF has been found to support the body’s own healing ability by replenishing the natural charge that exists in healthy cells. When your body is healthy you sleep better, experience more energy, and are less likely to experience pain and inflammation. Because every body process runs on cellular function, having cells that are working at full capacity has countless applications.
PEMF has been Shown to:
Help with chronic (long term) muscle pain and acute pain from new injuries
Support healthy bone structure and healing after breaks or fractures
Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue
Reduce pain, inflammation, the effects of stress on the body, and platelet adhesion
Promote quicker recovery time after strenuous physical workouts
Help alleviate joint aches and pains by supporting healthy cartilage function
Relax muscles and nerves
Help alleviate symptoms associated with chronic headaches and/or seasonal allergies, depression, anxiety, and head trauma
Improve energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells.
Balance the immune system and stimulate RNA and DNA
