Have you ever applied an Ice pack to an injury? If so then you have already experienced Cryotherapy on a smaller scale.
Cryotherapy at this level and using the ICE QUEEN Whole Body Cryo Therapy (WBCT) Cryocapsule will reduce any and all inflammations throughout your whole body. Healing will occur in more than one area at a time and in a much higher and effective manner.
