Why does cryotherapy work?


Cryotherapy is based on the rapid and controlled cooling of tissue. This increases your body’s own blood circulation as well as the release of feel-good endorphins and the antiinflammatory protein norepinephrine.

Cryotherapy is a versatile and fast treatment that can: accelerate recovery from injuries, reduce swelling and post-surgery scarring, alleviate muscle pain and migraines, manage chronic pain, help manage stress, increase overall wellness and beauty & boost athletic performance.

Cryotherapy is available as a local treatment of a specific body area or injury or as a wholebody cryocabin or cryochamber.

Localized cryotherapy can be used for almost any part of the body. Due to the unique design of our XºCRYO treatment applicators and adjustable high velocity of the cooled air (-30ºC/-22ºF) coupled with efficient heat extraction, comfortable and fast treatment of pain, mobility restrictions and inflammation is possible in areas like the knees, ankles, elbows, wrists, neck and the scalp. Our innovative cryofacial mask makes toning and soothing facials refreshingly easy. The recommended treatment duration is 1–3 minutes.

Whole-body cryotherapy exposes your whole body to sub-zero temperatures ranging from -110ºC to -130ºC (-166ºF to -202ºF) for a brief period. The recommended session duration is 2 minutes. This produces a thermal shock to which your body reacts by releasing chemicals and increasing blood circulation for fast recovery from exertion and improved overall wellness. Our CRYOºCABIN sets the industry standard in whole-body cryotherapy safety and performance.
