The History of Cryotherapy?

To put into context how long cryotherapy has been around, it was the ancient Greeks who invented the word thousands of years ago! However, it goes back even further than this with the ancient Egyptians who initially used cold temperatures to treat injuries and inflammation as early as 2500 BCE, that’s 4,500 years ago.

While the application of using the cold to improve our health has been documented for centuries, it’s not as well-used as it should be within the world we live in today. Even something as simple as swimming in cold waters has long been heralded as amazing for longevity and ones quality of life.

Just take Jitka Tauferova, who belongs to a cold-water swimming club in the Czech Republic, she was featured in Time Magazine in February 2018. She says she has not gotten sick since she began cold-water swimming. “The last time I had flu was 25 years ago”, and even better, “my back pain disappeared, improved blood circulation improves healing broken bones, and my heart is like a hammer. I feel great.”

Let’s face it, we all know how great we feel after having had a cold shower, a practice we like to undertake here daily as your energy increases, skin tingles, glows and you generally feel amazing!
So it’s no surprise that cryotherapy is great for us humans!

It was only in the 1950s liquid nitrogen became widely available, as liquid oxygen proved too highly combustible to use safely.

Cryotherapy devices as we know them today were invented in 1978 by Toshima Yamauchi, a Japanese medical doctor who was seeking a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Early therapies involved applying freezing instruments to small, targeted areas of a person’s body, and the process has evolved over time.

The longer established producers of cryo chambers have been around since the first decade of the 2000’s, with European countries leading the adoption of the therapy into everyday life, such as Russia, Eastern European countries and now the therapies are very well established in Italy, France and United States of America. The rest of the world is only just opening their eyes to what it can do for them and why it’s so popular in these countries.
