Spurred on by curiosity Robert wanted to learn more about this unique use of cold temperatures and arranged a visit to Creator Cryogenics, home to the manufacturer and operator of Rehabilitation Centers. He learned that the first commercial chamber was created in Japan by Dr. Yamauchi in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. The first Polish Chamber was created in 1989 and has spread to many other European countries. This visit coupled with his own beneficial experience convinced him that this treatment should be available in the United States.
Cryo-Wellness of America’s Whole-Body Cryotherapy has controlled exposure to extreme sub-freezing temperatures in a specially designed State of the Art Chamber consisting of two rooms. All guests wear shorts, long socks, t-shirt (optional for men), gloves, and a cover for the ears. Some guests may prefer to wear more depending on their tolerance for cold. Guests will be provided with a cold air mask and wooden shoes which must be worn in the Chamber.
Guests enter the first room which is maintained at a temperature of -76F for 30 seconds in groups of 4-6 individuals. This is followed by entry into the second room maintained at a temperature of -184 F for up to 3 minutes. A short warm-up session follows in the specially equipped exercise room. The short 3-minute session stimulates the body’s natural response to decrease inflammation, pain, and spasms which promote healing. It is a non-invasive, inexpensive, and effective complement to Health and Wellness Initiatives.
Cryo-Wellness of America is open to the public from 3pm-7pm Monday-Friday. Cryo-Wellness of America is also committed to conducting its own research on the effectiveness of Whole Body Cryotherapy. The Center is open to working with local, national and international researchers. Fronckowiak is joined by two partners.
