Whole Body Cryotherapy, or WBC, is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness which dates back to ancient civilizations. Developed in 1978 by Dr. Toshima Yamauchi to treat rheumatoid arthritis, whole body cryotherapy uses a temperature range of -90 Celsius (-130ºF) to -120 Celsius (-184ºF) to hypercool the body for 3-minutes — similar to how athletes use ice baths or how you would ice a sprained ankle.
