Local entrepreneur Todd Pendleton launched Champion Cryotherapy at Trails at 620 a couple of months ago. The Steiner Ranch resident founded the company after experiencing the benefits that whole body cryotherapy has delivered to professional athletes and movie stars since 2011.
“I’ve battled shoulder pain and inflammation for years,” Pendleton said. “After hearing the Dallas Mavericks refer to WBC as their ‘secret weapon’ during their Championship season of 2011, I decided to try it. Two weeks of the short 3-minute therapy sessions relieved my pain and inflammation. I could once again enjoy my favorite activity: playing ball with my sons.”
Champion Cryotherapy’s mission is to deliver superior, innovative therapies to accelerate athletic recovery, relieve pain and inflammation, and elevate well-being.
One of Champion’s primary therapies is whole body cryotherapy, which is a Rheumatologist-invented, research-proven cold therapy that triggers the body’s pain and inflammation fighters. A person chills in a cold air sauna for three minutes, and then their body activates its natural restorative process. The results are relief from pain and inflammation, accelerated muscle recovery, boosted energy levels and vitality, increased metabolic rate, enhanced complexion and elevated well-being.
Pendleton encourages anyone in the community who desires relief from musculoskeletal pain and inflammation, enhanced recovery from training, increased metabolic rate (burn more calories), boosted collagen production and reduced travel fatigue/jet lag, to try cryotherapy.
“The human body has an amazing capacity to self-heal — and WBC is simply a natural mechanism that activates your body’s self-healing,” he said. “There’s a reason why those whose careers depend on optimal health choose cryotherapy. LeBron, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, Jordan Spieth, the Denver Broncos . . . now you can chill too.”
Champion Cryotherapy, which held its grand opening in late September, is located at 11714 Wilson Park Ave., Ste 160 next door to Austin Regional Clinic. For more information, go to http://championcryotherapy.net/
