When people talk about cryotherapy, they’re often referring to whole body cryotherapy—think entering a cold chamber instead of using ice packs on individual muscles. In whole body cryotherapy (WBC), you’re immersed in extremely cold air for two to three minutes (we’re talking temps that often run between -200° and -300° Fahrenheit. Yeah, brrrrr!). The cold chamber may be cylindrical, with an open top, or it might be totally enclosed. Because it’s so cold, it’s common to wear gloves, socks, and mouth and ear protection. People turn to this treatment to help manage conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, depression, and anxiety. It’s said to improve blood circulation, increase metabolism, and improve workout recovery time.
