Alleviate Pain & Release Endorphins

Cryotherapy is a therapeutic treatment that uses extremely low temperatures to alleviate pain and inflammation. The treatment involves exposing the body to subzero temperatures for a brief period. This causes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, to reduce inflammation and muscle soreness and improve overall recovery time. Cryotherapy can also improve overall skin quality and target skin conditions, such as moles and warts.

Your Experience

During a cryotherapy session, you will be asked to remove most of your clothing, wear minimal clothing provided by the clinic, and step into the cryotherapy chamber. The chamber is cooled to the desired temperature for 2-4 minutes. You will feel a cool sensation that can be intense but should not be unbearable. The session is brief and is over before you know it. After the session, you will feel invigorated, refreshed, and energized.

Recovery & Side Effects

Cryotherapy is safe and has minimal side effects. After a session, you may feel a slight tingling sensation in the treated area, and your skin may be red for a short time. You may also feel a temporary increase in energy and endorphins. There is no downtime after cryotherapy, and you can immediately return to your normal activities.

How Cryotherapy Works

Cryotherapy exposes the body to extremely low temperatures, typically between -160°F and -230°F, for a brief period. This causes the blood vessels to constrict and dilate, leading to an increased flow of oxygen-rich blood to the treated area. This increased blood flow reduces inflammation and soreness, improves skin conditions, and promotes healing. The release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving hormones, also occurs during cryotherapy, leading to a feeling of well-being and pain relief.
