Cryotherapy Effects

The term "cryotherapy" comes from the Greek words “cryo” meaning "cold” and “therapy“ meaning “cure.” Cryotherapy involves the localized use of colder temperatures (-250°F and -350°F) to accelerate healing and speed recovery leading to enhanced athletic performance.  Blood circulation is stimulated activating your body's hormone, immune, and nervous systems. Cryotherapy also reduces inflammation to provide comfort and improve mobility.


How It Works:

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) helps flush your muscles and deliver nutrients and oxygen to them, enhancing sports performance, muscle hypertrophy and recovery. This is achieved in a Cryosauna, a therapeutic “bath” of liquid nitrogen steam that reaches between -250°F and -350°F. Due to the controlled low humidity, clients experience a pleasant cooling sensation.


Cryotherapy has gained global praise as a recovery modality from muscle injuries through significantly alleviating inflammation after strenuous exercise by inducing an anti-inflammatory effect. Intense training, overuse and/or insufficient recovery have been known to cause muscle fatigue, injury, and immune compromise. Therefore, achieving the optimal balance between training and recovery is crucial in maximizing performance. Cryotherapy can help you achieve and exceed your health and fitness endeavors!

Cryotherapy is also used for anti-aging. Collagen is stimulated, leaving skin more elastic, refreshed and tightened. Additionally, cellulite reduction and weight loss have been reported with exposure of body parts to cold temperatures. 


WBC is also helpful in relieving many other health issues such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and acne. Each session is quick, painless, and affordable!

For the BEST Results

Our recommendation is that our clients do their first ten sessions within thirty days and decide how often they would like to continue thereafter. Many benefits such as a rush of endorphins and better sleep can be experienced as early as the first session, however, maximum results are obtained with repeated sessions!
