What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy involves exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures for a short duration to promote healing and pain relief. Whether applied locally or to the entire body, it stimulates circulation, reduces inflammation, and triggers the release of endorphins, offering various health benefits such as improved recovery, reduced pain, and enhanced physical performance.


Experience Pain Relief and Enhance Natural Healing:

Encourages the flow of oxygen-rich, nutrient-filled blood to the treated areas, aiding in natural recovery and rejuvenation.

Boosts the production of natural anti-inflammatory agents, reducing swelling and promoting cellular repair for faster healing.

Diminishes pain signals and prompts the release of endorphins in targeted regions such as the back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles.

Benefits of Local Cryotherapy:

  • Alleviates localized inflammation.
  • Minimizes the appearance of scars.
  • Enhances skin conditions.
  • Provides relief from headaches.
  • Aids in wrinkle reduction.
  • Eases pain stemming from inflammation.
  • Improves physical performance.
  • Chronic pain relief for a sore muscles and joints in the neck, back, shoulder, knee or hip without dangerous painkillers.

How does this differ from whole-body cryotherapy?

Whole-body cryotherapy utilizes much colder vapors to induce a comprehensive anti-inflammatory reaction throughout the body, enhancing circulation and stimulating cellular regeneration internally. Participants typically change into a robe, protective gloves, and Ugg boots before entering the cryochamber for treatment.

Targeted cryotherapy focuses on specific body areas, such as neck wrinkles or a sore knee, prompting a localized anti-inflammatory response externally. As it’s tailored to specific regions, there’s no necessity to change clothes, allowing individuals to comfortably sit or lie down during treatment.

What is local cryotherapy?

Localized cryotherapy offers identical benefits to traditional cryotherapy but targets specific areas of the body, unlike whole-body cryotherapy. By pinpointing particular regions, it allows for focused attention on areas requiring treatment, providing personalized relief and benefits where needed most.

Is it possible to combine localized cryotherapy with whole-body cryotherapy?

Absolutely. This “inside out/outside in” treatment strategy is an excellent way to accelerate sports recovery and treat chronic pain. You get fast relief for specific areas that need immediate attention while benefiting from a total-body circulatory and anti-inflammatory boost.

What is the duration of a session for localized cryotherapy?

A localized cryotherapy session, lasting only minutes, offers benefits surpassing those of traditional icing methods. Many of our clients pair it with whole body cryotherapy, also a brief procedure, to maximize its effects.

How many sessions are needed to attain and sustain results?

Single or intermittent sessions provide temporary improvements in skin appearance and help alleviate inflammation and pain. However, many clients find that more lasting results are attained through a series of treatments.

For those aiming for youthful, radiant skin, integrating cryo facials into their regular beauty regimen is recommended, along with scheduling additional treatments before significant events.

Similarly, for those seeking pain relief, starting with frequent sessions initially is advised to achieve initial relief, followed by a maintenance schedule to prevent pain recurrence.

What is the mechanism behind local cryotherapy?

Utilizing a compact, handheld apparatus, local cryotherapy administers cold nitrogen gas directly to selected areas like the neck, elbow, knee, or ankle. This method enhances blood circulation in the targeted region, amplifying the body’s innate healing mechanisms.

How should I dress for my appointment?

With targeted cryotherapy, only the specific area requiring treatment needs to be accessible, allowing you to wear clothing that exposes the affected body part. Unlike whole-body cryotherapy, there’s no requirement to change attire.

How does localized cryotherapy feel?

Localized cryotherapy exposes your skin to extreme cold. Our well-trained staff will guide you through the process and make sure you feel comfortable. The treated area warms up quickly after the session.
