What is it?
Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that triggers the body’s natural fight or flight response to accelerate recovery and decrease inflammation throughout body. After just 3 minutes of exposure to the extreme cold, you will notice a boost in energy, relief of muscle and/or joint pain, and many other positive benefits. You can get benefits from just one session of cryotherapy, but it’s most effective when used regularly.

How Does it Work?
3 minutes of cold. Unfathomable relief.
Whole Body Cryotherapy involves the entire body getting exposed to very cold temperatures. By doing so, the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response is activated, and endorphins are released, which directly activates your pain relief mechanisms. Due to this process, you produce more highly oxygenated blood, which increases your body’s strength, stamina, and ability to repair itself. There are many athletic benefits including:
- Increased endurance
- Decreased recovery time
- Better flexiblity
- Increased energy
- Speeds up metabolism
Supercharge your Immune System
Unlock a whole new level of wellness
Are you ready to supercharge your immune system and unlock a whole new level of wellness? Let’s delve into the science behind how cryotherapy helps to boost your immune system:
Enhances Circulation: Cryotherapy involves exposing your body to ultra-low temperatures, causing your blood vessels to constrict and redirect blood to your vital organs. As you step out of the cryotherapy chamber, your body quickly reheats, causing your blood vessels to dilate and release a surge of oxygen-rich blood throughout your system. This enhanced circulation helps to deliver vital nutrients and immune-boosting components to every nook and cranny of your body.
Activates Natural Defense Mechanisms: The extreme cold temperatures stimulate your body’s natural defense mechanisms. This leads to an increase in the production of white blood cells, which are the warriors of your immune system. With more white blood cells circulating in your body, you’ll have a stronger defense against harmful pathogens, viruses, and bacteria.
Reduces Inflammation: Chronic inflammation can wreak havoc on your immune system, making you more susceptible to illnesses. Cryotherapy’s cold temperatures help to reduce inflammation in your body by constricting blood vessels and reducing the production of inflammatory markers. By combating inflammation, cryotherapy allows your immune system to function optimally, keeping you healthier and more resistant to infections.
Releases Endorphins: Cryotherapy triggers the release of endorphins, those amazing feel-good hormones that not only elevate your mood but also have immune-boosting properties. Endorphins help to reduce stress and anxiety, which can weaken your immune system. By promoting a sense of well-being, cryotherapy empowers your immune system to function at its peak performance.

Who should not use Whole Body Cryotherapy?
The following conditions are contraindications to whole body cryotherapy: Pregnancy, severe Hypertension (BP> 180/100), acute or recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, arrhythmia, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, cardiac pacemaker, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, venous thrombosis, acute or recent cerebrovascular accident, uncontrolled seizures, Raynaud’s Syndrome, fever, tumor disease, symptomatic lung disorders, bleeding disorders, severe anemia, infection, claustrophobia, cold allergy, age less than 18 years (parental consent to treatment needed), acute kidney and urinary tract diseases.
Is it comfortable?
The cryotherapy treatment is of short, 3-minute session and the cold air is ‘dry’, so it is very tolerable. Towards the end of the treatment, you may get a ‘pins and needles’ sensation, which disappears almost immediately after the treatment.
How do I feel afterwards?
During each 3-minute session the body releases endorphins. The endorphins help mask pain, make you feel full of energy and elevate your mood.
How many sessions do I need?
Depending on your needs, we typically recommend 3-5 sessions in a week to maximize your results. After that, we recommend “listening” to your body to judge the effectiveness of the response and we can help tailor a program specific to your needs.
What are the risks of Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Whole body cryotherapy is well-tolerated and has minimal risks. You may see a fluctuation in blood pressure during the procedure by up to 10 points (this effect reverses after the end of the procedure). Other risks include redness and skin burn, claustrophobia and in rare cases, allergic reaction to extreme cold.
