The word cryotherapy is derived from the Greek “cryo” (cold) and “therapy” (cure). The concept of treating by the cold can be traced back 4,000 years in ancient Egypt as an effective pain and inflammation management technique. Greek physician Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) noted that exposure to the cold could reduce swelling, pain and bleeding.
In the late 70s, Dr. Yamaguchi started to use whole body cryotherapy to treat his patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. From then on, cryotherapy became a recognized medical technology, widely used in Europe. Over the past decade or so, it has gained worldwide popularity in sports performance enhancement and the treatment of chronic inflammation.
