Local CryoTherapy works by delivering a stream of safe, extremely cold vapor directly onto targeted areas for approximately five to ten minutes until a surface temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit is reached.

Others may choose once-a-day therapy for ten consecutive days for minor or acute injuries, chronic muscular and joint disorders and autoimmune ailments that cause ongoing pain and inflammation. Concentrated ten-day therapies are frequently repeated once a month to help keep the body healthy, functional and pain-free.
Whole Body CryoTherapy is the immersion of the entire body in a cold vapor that is concentrated in a private booth with temperatures that drops between 165 to 295 degrees below zero for a range from two to three minutes. There are numerous health benefits from just one session, although it’s most effective when used regularly. Many athletes opt for daily use for maximum relief of accumulated stress and discomfort on joints and muscles. And Whole Body CryoTherapy burns up to 800 calories with each session! After just a couple of minutes of Whole Body CryoTherapy people report feeling energized, refreshed, less pain, slight euphoria, a more positive mood and better sleep.

Mood Disorders can also be improved with ultra-cold temperatures. Whole Body Cryotherapy can cause physiological hormonal responses including the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins. These changes can have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders like depression and anxiety.

Insomnia has also been shown to improve with Whole Body Cryotherapy in the latest case studies.
