Origins of Cryotherapy

Use of cold exposure therapy dates back to Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire. However, Cryotherapy as we know it today was developed by a Japanese doctor in 1978 for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and to boost the immune system.

Over the years scientists have found – and continue to find – applications of Cryotherapy for Performance, Recovery, Wellness, Skincare and Fat-loss. It is most commonly associated with athletes and is widely adopted by professional sports teams all over the world. 

Cryotherapy is undervalued by its lack of exposure, the benefits reach far beyond sports and fitness; for example, parts of Europe provide Cryotherapy to treat autoimmune and inflammatory disorders as part of their national health service. This method of treatment continues to excite researchers and is being embraced for all its worth worldwide.
