(WBC) is the exposure of the body to extremely cold temperatures. WBC originated in Japan in the late 1970’s, where it was studied as a powerful treatment for those suffering from inflammation and pain from a number of chronic conditions. Over the next 30 years, it spread throughout Europe and Asia, becoming widely known for its wide range of performance and health benefits.

How it works

When you’re in the cryotherapy chamber, the extreme cold on your skin triggers a reaction from your central nervous system. Your overall circulation is restricted, pulling much of the blood into the core. Once your brief exposure to the cold is over and you begin to warm up, the circulation is pushed back above its previous levels, releasing endorphins and oxygen-rich blood throughout your system. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators, and the increased flow of oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood reduces inflammation by clearing out toxins and other waste, while also stimulating cellular regeneration.

The results

  • Studies over the last 20 years have established WBC as a powerful option for the treatment of injuries and inflammation.
  • WBC has been adopted for use by many professional and collegiate sports teams and other elite athletes to improve recovery times and performance.
  • It is also becoming accepted as a way to treat inflammation and as a method for managing pain.
  • In Europe, WBC is now considered to be a standard part of a comprehensive treatment of rheumatologic diseases.



Cryo T-Shock by Pagani

The Italian Masterpiece for Body Slimming is a non-surgical fat removal that reduces fat and preserves the non-fat tissue surrounding the area for a dramatic firming effect.  Body contouring has never been easier or more affordable.

How it works

Fat cells are more vulnerable to the effects of cold therapy, which causes what is know as fat cell apoptosis, a natural controlled cell death.  This leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate the affected fat cells. These inflammatory cells digest the affected fat cells and lipids form these fat cells are released by the lymphatic system. The result: a significant reduction of the thickness of the fat layer. The T-shock works by alternating warm and cold treatments directly applied to the skin.
