Cryo-Wellness of America Opens First Whole Body Cryotherapy Chamber in WNY

BUFFALO, NY, February 27, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cryo-Wellness of America has opened the first commercial Whole Body Cryotherapy Chamber in the United States (Western New York) at 6301 Transit Rd. in Depew, NY. The Chamber, manufactured in Poland, is where Cryo-Wellness of America founder, Robert J Fronckowiak, was living in 2013. Fronckowiak, a retired educator, and businessman experienced firsthand the benefits of using a Cryo Chamber while living in Krakow, Poland. Whole Body Cryotherapy was recommended by a Polish physical therapist as an adjunct treatment for a shoulder problem. Not only did the treatments help Robert's shoulder but the treatments also substantially reduced overall body aches and pains.

Spurred on by curiosity Robert wanted to learn more about this unique use of cold temperatures and arranged a visit to Creator Cryogenics, home to the manufacturer and operator of Rehabilitation Centers. He learned that the first commercial chamber was created in Japan by Dr. Yamauchi in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. The first Polish Chamber was created in 1989 and has spread to many other European countries. This visit coupled with his own beneficial experience convinced him that this treatment should be available in the United States.

Cryo-Wellness of America's Whole-Body Cryotherapy has controlled exposure to extreme sub-freezing temperatures in a specially designed State of the Art Chamber consisting of two rooms. All guests wear shorts, long socks, t-shirt (optional for men), gloves, and a cover for the ears. Some guests may prefer to wear more depending on their tolerance for cold. Guests will be provided with a cold air mask and wooden shoes which must be worn in the Chamber.

Guests enter the first room which is maintained at a temperature of -76F for 30 seconds in groups of 4-6 individuals. This is followed by entry into the second room maintained at a temperature of -184 F for up to 3 minutes. A short warm-up session follows in the specially equipped exercise room. The short 3-minute session stimulates the body's natural response to decrease inflammation, pain, and spasms which promote healing. It is a non-invasive, inexpensive, and effective complement to Health and Wellness Initiatives.

Cryo-Wellness of America is open to the public from 3pm-7pm Monday-Friday. Cryo-Wellness of America is also committed to conducting its own research on the effectiveness of Whole Body Cryotherapy. The Center is open to working with local, national and international researchers. Fronckowiak is joined by two partners. James Kenney, Ed.D is VP of Operations and Research and has a broad experience in healthcare delivery. Daniel Lang, RN. BSN Director Member Services is a decorated 27yr Air Force Veteran having served as a Combat Rescue Officer and Clinical Nurse in various positions in several states until his retirement in May of 2009. He recently returned to Buffalo and was a Clinical Manager for MASH at the Dent Tower.
