CRYOTHERAPY

Restore your body’s peak performance utilizing the anti-inflammatory power of extremely cold nitrogen gas.

What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy (cryo=cold and therapy=treatment) uses super cold nitrogen gas chilled air to shock the body’s immune system for healing and recovery.

As blood rushes to your core in response to the cold your body enjoys special neurotransmitters that dramatically decrease inflammation, boost collagen production and accelerate cellular regeneration. The super cold causes the body’s metabolism to turn on its cold-shock response allowing athletes, those managing chronic pain, and those recovering from injury to benefit from faster recovery.

Whole Body Cryotherapy vs Local Cryotherapy?

Just as it sounds, whole body cryo treats the entire body except the head and neck. This treatment reduces full body inflammation and pain, takes about 3 minutes and can last for days depending upon your condition.

Localized or spot cryotherapy treats a specific area such as the neck or face and is used alone or in conjunction with whole body cryotherapy. Often this 7-12 minute treatment is used to target a specific area for therapeutic purposes such as a bad knee for example.
