Cryo Health SB had their grand opening last Friday as they showed off a machine that promises athletes decreased recovery time.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara is now home to whole-body cryotherapy which claims to help athletes recover more effectively by decreasing local and systemic inflammation. Those who suffer from chronic pain or inflammation may also find benefits from whole-body cryotherapy.

A machine uses liquid nitrogen to create ultra-low temperatures of below -200 degrees F. A person goes into this chamber for up to three minutes and the body triggers a systemic anti-inflammatory response. Whole-body Cryotherapy is a replacement for ice baths.

There are less than twenty of these devices in the country and most are owned by professional sports teams. Cryo Health SB has the only machine on the Central Coast.
