Cryotherapy is a form of treatment for the relief of mild to moderate physical ailments in which very cold temperatures are exposed to the body in order to promote comfort and other therapeutic results. This activates circulation, delivery of oxygen, and collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin and muscular tissues. Studies have shown that after only a limited number of sessions, clients have received the benefits of improved circulation resulting in skin that appears smoother and more evenly toned with better elasticity. Cryotherapy has also been proven to improve the body’s own healing capacity and reduce the amount of recovery time from physical injuries.
Likewise, cryotherapy has been shown to decrease inflammation of the body’s tissues, muscles and joints; reducing pain and muscle spasms in the body as well as reduce the swelling of injuries. As a side benefit, clients have reported experiencing an energy boost due to the natural endorphin release during the sessions and with multiple consistent sessions noted relief from depression, stress, and anxiety.
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. Cryosauna treatments last for 1.5 to 3 minutes and localized treatments range from 5 to 10 minutes.
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.
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.

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.
Relaxing in complete comfort, cool air will be blown onto your face for 6 minutes. This will cause the cells to produce more collagen reducing the sign of fine lines, wrinkles, redness or skin irritation and leaving you glowing.
An ice pack on steroids to eliminate pain and reduce inflammation. We localize the treatment to draw blood away from the area so it becomes more oxygenated and nutritionally dense and speeding up the healing process as a result.
