Cryotherapy

cryotherapy header

Cryotherapy is a quick, non-invasive process that exposes your body — or parts of your body — to extreme cold of up to -260°F using liquid nitrogen. Cryotherapy chambers are used for whole body cryotherapy and are aimed at reducing your overall skin temperature to between 40°F and 50°F while maintaining a healthy core temperature.

Local cryotherapy acts as a higher intensity, more efficient form of “icing.” The treatment delivers colder, more consistent temperatures, effectively targeting areas experiencing pain and inflammation.

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY

Cryotherapy chambers are used for whole body cryotherapy and are aimed at reducing your overall skin temperature to between 40°F and 50°F, while maintaining a healthy core temperature. This sudden drop in temperature signals the brain to go into “fight or flight” mode, sending blood flow from your extremities back to your vital organs which may be why you feel a pins-and-needles sensation in your extremities.

When you exit the chamber again and begin warming up, your blood is pumped vigorously back around the body, creating a flushing effect. This overall enhanced circulation accelerates the body’s natural healing process by increasing the oxygen and nutrient supply to the bloodstream, helping reduce inflammation, relieve pain and alleviate sore muscles.

Cryotherapy can also trigger the autonomic nervous system to release stress hormones and endorphins. These hormones can influence your body to improve mood, arousal, improve sleep, balance stress loads on the body, and improve metabolism.

LOCAL CRYOTHERAPY

LOCAL CRYOTHERAPY

Local cryotherapy acts as a higher intensity, more efficient form of “icing.” The treatment delivers colder, more consistent temperatures, effectively targeting areas experiencing pain and inflammation. Local cryotherapy is prominently used in cases such as golfer’s or tennis elbow, post-operative knee cases, low back pain and ankle sprains.

CRYOFACIALS

CRYOFACIALS

Cryofacials apply pressurized liquid nitrogen vapors to the face, neck and scalp to help stimulate and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Regular treatments help stimulate the production of collagen, shrink pores and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving a youthful, healthy glow. In addition, cryofacials can be used to treat inflammatory skin conditions, including acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
