WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?
Cryotherapy is a form of relievement in which very cold temperatures are exposed to the body in order to promote comfort and other therapeutic results. This activates the collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin which after a few sessions, the skin will be smoother, more even toned, regain elasticity and improve/clear skin deficiencies.
Cryotherapy has been shown to decrease inflammation of the body’s tissues, muscles and joints. It can also help improve the body’s circulation and comfort, and also slow down cellular metabolism. Cryotherapy can help to reduce pain and muscle spasms in the body as well as reduce the swelling of injuries. Cryotherapy has also been shown to promote faster relieve in joint, muscle and tendon injuries. You will receive an energy boost due to the endorphin release which has been linked to aiding in the cure of depression.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
The cryosauna looks like a stand-up tanning booth. You undress, put on a towel/robe, gloves, and socks before stepping inside. The cryo-operator will have you close the door and remove the robe. A liquid nitrogen tank attached to the machine pumps the cold air in. Treatments last for 1.5 to 3 minutes.
HOW IT WORKS:
When we subject our bodies to ice cold temperatures, our bodies go into a fight-or-flight response that is meant to keep us from freezing. As the cryosauna exposes the skin to super-cold temperatures, our bodies go into “I am freezing, must survive” mode and the blood rushes to our core to keep our organs going. There, it is enriched with oxygen and nutrients as our body works in super-survival mode. As soon as we step out into the warm air, the oxygenated blood rushes back out, flooding the peripheral tissues and flushing out toxins.
HOW THIS HELPS THE BODY, SKIN, AND MUSCLES:
Stimulates collagen production similar to laser treatments, improving skin tone and promotes cellulite reduction. The constriction of blood vessels followed by the post-cryosauna flushing also flushes out toxins and helps with conditions like psoriasis and rosacea. The procedure also boosts endorphins and increases metabolism, pushing the body to burn calories in the few hours after the procedure (and more over time with regular sessions). The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect also helps with joint disorders and muscle soreness. Overall, immunity is boosted. *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

WHY IT’S BETTER THAN AN ICE BATH:
Ice baths can be painful, and even after 30 minutes or so submerged the skin temperature doesn’t go below about 41 degrees or so. And by that time, the muscles are literally frozen and pretty immobile. For athletes, this means downtime they can’t afford. With cryosauna treatments, the skin is exposed to dry cold of minus 220 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as you step out of the cryosauna, blood rushes back out from your core and you feel a rush of endorphins and energy – making for a quick and high-octane return to physical activity.
