… In the 1980s, while continuing his research, now on the effects of Whole Body Cryotherapy, Dr. Yamaguchi and his associates came to this conclusion: that rapid short-term freezing of the skin’s surface to a temperature of -1oC/32oF while inside the cryo-chamber has a more beneficial effect on the human body than its gradual cooling while immersed in an ice bath, where the lowest temperature possible is 5oC/41oF.
As a result of thorough and sustained research, Dr. Yamaguchi further formulated that Whole Body Cryotherapy (WCT) affects the body on three different levels:
- The Biochemical level – the circulatory system
- The Energy level – the energy meridians
- The Information level – the nervous system
