The many benefits of Cryotherapy

It has been used overseas for years to treat many minor health issues, and is believed to improve the immune system and help clear up skin issues. Here are some of the more commonly found benefits of cryotherapy.

Sports & Fitness

  • Decreases Fatigue, Soreness & Inflammation
  • Accelerates Recovery, Improves Performance
  • Boosts Immune System, Limits Colds & Flu

Health & Wellness

  • Treats Autoimmune & Inflammatory Disorders
  • Reduces Chronic Pain & Chronic Fatigue
  • Activates Natural Biological Regeneration


  • Increases Collagen Production for Healthier Skin
  • Reduces Cellulite, Skin Blemishes & Skin Aging
  • Accelerates Metabolism for Weight Management

What is Local Cryotherapy

Local Cryotherapy treatments are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas.

Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which triggers an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response in the body, local cryotherapy is comparable to “icing”, although much more powerful and efficient based on our experience.

Clients frequently combine this treatment with Whole Body Cryotherapy to treat problematic areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”. As temperatures as low as -250 degrees Fahrenheit can be reached by our devices, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 3-8 minutes, with a benefit exceeding that of hours of icing.
