Cryotherapy is the science of exposing the body to subzero temperatures in order to stimulate various physical and mental health benefits. Cryotherapy speeds up muscle recovery and relieves pain from the body. It helps with weight loss and enhances general health and wellness. Cryotherapy is also used to treat aging and various skin conditions.

From acute pain to weight loss there are a number of benefits to using Cryotherapy even once. Some individuals decide to come once a week, while some professional athletes may come twice a day. As treatments are generally less than 5 minutes of exposure our patients rarely need to wait long for therapies. Other individuals will choose to come once a day for two weeks and then once a month. Depending on your results, and health goals, a custom cryotherapy treatment plan may be created for you.
- Reduction in Arthritic Pain
Some patients have seen benefits from cryotherapy localized to a single area, but whole body cryotherapy has shown significant reduction in pain for patients with Arthritis.
- Treatment for Atopic Dermatitis & Other Conditions
Chronic inflammatory skin diseases can be treated with the use of cryotherapy. Because it improves the antioxidant levels in the blood while simultaneously reducing inflammation this has been considered an effective therapy for treatment of many skin conditions.
- Dementia & Alzheimer’s Prevention
Due to the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects cryotherapy has, it is being evaluated as an effective strategy to combat the inflammatory and oxidation stress responses that occur with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients.
- Migraine Symptom Reduction
By cooling the blood passing through the intracranial vessels, migraine symptoms are greatly reduced and in some cases disappear.
- Reduction in Anxiety & Depression
Exposure to ultra-cold temperatures in whole-body cryotherapy treatments may cause responses on a physiological hormonal level. Some of the hormones released include noradrenaline, adrenaline, and even endorphins. By naturally increasing these hormone levels individuals saw short term benefits for both disorders.
