Cryotherapy is any form of treatment involving freezing or near-freeze temperatures. This can include cryosurgery or cryoablation, where liquid nitrogen is applied locally to destroy abnormal cells (such as tumors or cancerous cells). Cryotherapy can be done at home using an ice bath or by visiting a clinic for a cryotherapy facial. It has been used for pain relief and muscle recovery since ancient times. However, some people believe that cryotherapy can help with weight loss by using cold temperatures to force the body to work harder. Changing eating habits and exercising also serve as effective and safer ways to lose weight.

What is whole body cryotherapy?
The method of using whole body cryotherapy began in Japan, developed in Europe, and migrated to the United States. There have been numerous clinical studies for the treatment of pain and inflammatory conditions caused by sports injuries, fibromyalgic conditions, rheumatoid arthritic conditions, multiple sclerosis, and various skin conditions. Whole Body Cryotherapy triggers the body's natural mechanisms. Get inside one of the cold machines in the country to reduce your body temperature. Cold exposure causes the blood vessels to constrict, then dilate, which produces more oxygenated blood and increases your body‘s strength, stamina, and ability to heal itself.
It is the newest, most advanced recovery method available. Once a participant enters the cryogenic chamber, the temperature in the chamber drops to approximately -240 degrees Fahrenheit, the body reacts by causing blood to flow out of the skin, into the muscles, and into the joints. The blood circulates through the body's core, where it is cleaned of toxins and supplied with nutrients, enzymes, and oxygen. After the participant has exited the cryo chamber, the enriched blood is returned to the peripheral tissues where it cleanses them of toxins. As a result, the inflammation is kept in check, and lactic acid is pushed out of the muscles, speeding up recovery and rejuvenating the body.
The treatment only takes three minutes and our friendly staff members will be there to assist and go over any procedures before starting your session.
Cryotherapy is a 2 to 3 minute cold therapy treatment used by professional athletes, body builders, and fitness and health enthusiasts to help recover faster after workouts and feel better overall. You don't have to be a professional athlete to get the benefits of Cryotherapy though!

Does cryotherapy burn calories?
A whole body cryotherapy session can burn up to 500 calories! When your body is shivering and it’s in “survival” mode, it’s expending energy - and calories are ultimately energy.
Studies show that frequent Cryotherapy sessions can increase your metabolism and help burn 600-800 more calories per day.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION OF CRYOTHERAPY?
A session of Cryotherapy is between 2-3 minutes long depending on the level of intensity.

DOES CRYOTHERAPY HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
Using Cryotherapy on a weekly basis can help speed up your metabolism and help with weight loss and muscle soreness.
Is cryotherapy painful?
Cryotherapy is not painful at all. Unlike ice baths which have extremely cold water encapsulating your entire body, Cryotherapy is simply cold air. Although Cryotherapy gets as cold as -220 degrees, it is not painful and you will feel amazing afterwards!
What should I wear for my session?
For men, we’d recommend shorts/boxers. Gloves, socks, masks, ear muffs, and a robe will be provided by our facility. For women, we’d recommend a sports bra and underwear/shorts. The more skin that’s visible, the more effective the cryotherapy will be. We just want our clients to feel comfortable. Before starting your session, you must be free of lotions, open wounds, and jewelry below the neck should be taken off. Body jewelry can be covered, so please let your technician know ahead of time.
