Whole-body cryotherapy aims to create a thermal shock, i.e. to lower the body temperature to a maximum in a minimum of time. The absence of humidity allows the body to withstand such a temperature. After the session, a feeling of well-being is guaranteed, as the thermal shock allows the body to release endomorphin hormones that make us feel good.
