Cryotherapy - Everything You Need to Know!

Your body is exposed to a temperature of -110°C and -180°C. The treatment takes as little as 1 to 4 minutes, but the effect on the body is most spectacular. The extreme cold provides stimulus that activates physiological processes in the body.
It’s effectively like a system reboot of your body as the body scans itself for underperforming bodily functions and repairs itself rapidly.
The treatment is excellent as a supporting therapy for improving chronic pain, inflammation, itching and sports injuries. Also the use of cryotherapy after an operation is quite common as it accelerates the healing process and improves any pain without high levels of medication and the accompanying side effects!

Professional athletes recover faster and perform at higher levels when cryotherapy is applied.

Its great for looking amazing as it improves the skins tone, texture and tightens. For the body it can help you loose weight while simultaneously good for reducing cellulite.
Its excellent for helping with depression and moods.

At -180˚C, the temperature at the surface of your skin drops significantly to around freezing. This in turn activates your skin receptors (nerve endings) to start sending signals to the central nervous system, telling it that the body is in critical danger.

Your body will immediately activate a wide range of defence processes which are really good for your well being. You will increase production of serotonin, plus other endorphins which act as natural painkillers and feel-good hormones, your blood circulation will improve plus natural anti-inflammatories will also be activated and produced by the body.

This new increased level of oxygen and nutrient rich blood will help you rid your body of toxins and any metabolism residues. In a nutshell, the cold stimulus can be thought of as the body pressing a special button which activates a process creating a whole body readjustment and improvement.

Between 1 and 4 minutes generally.
No, you can go straight back to work afterwards.
Firstly – Cryotherapy has been safely used for over 30 years.
Secondly – We wouldn’t personally use it ourselves every week if it wasn’t!

That being said you will need to always follow the instructions carefully for your treatment. It’s important no wet clothing and that you are completely dry for your treatment, sensitive parts of the body are covered, and no metals are on your person whether in clothing or jewellery.

Cryotherapy is a relatively risk-free treatment. Blood pressure can rise, but this is only temporary.

There are a number of health condition that exclude some people from the treatment however most people can safely have the treatment. You must wear dry protective clothing including socks, underwear and gloves.

The very first time I had by first Cryotherapy I was a touch nervous and was thinking what must it feel like to be that cold but really oddly it doesn’t feel that bad, I have in fact felt colder stood in ques waiting to go into night clubs in my 20s!

A temperature of -180˚C seems cold, however, remember the air in the chamber is extremely dry. Therefore, you do not really experience the cold as unpleasant. Plus your only in there for on average 3 minutes…

Yes you can and very easily. Simply just open the door and walk out!
Obviously this really depends on each individual person! However once a week is a good starting point. For sports stars they may need to come in daily to speed up recovery and enhance strength and endurance while for someone who just wants to help with depression and feel better a few times a month.
The very fact that a high levels of serotonin and endorphins are realised with each treatment mean yes this is very good for those with depression, mood swings, winter blues or just want to feel better! The effect can last for a few days post treatment.
Yes you can and very easily. Simply just open the door and walk out!
Whether your not feeling well or just don’t like it, that’s absolutely fine to stop ay any time you want
If you have any of the following then this mean we can treat you unfortunately:
• Heart conditions or complaints?
• Pregnant or breast feeding?
• Cancer?
• Raynaud’s disease?
• Under 18 without parental consent?
• Mid to high blood pressure?
• Angina?
• Cardiac arrhythmias
• Cardiovascular diseases
• Intermittent claudication (also called peripheral arterial disease)
• Venous thrombosis: a blood clot in the veins
• Acute cerebral haemorrhage or a stroke in the past
• Epileptic seizures
• Fever
• Lung conditions in which symptoms are present
• Bleeding disorders
• Severe anaemia
• Acute kidney diseases and acute disorders of the urinary tract
Though Cryotherapy is excellent for pain relief and living with rheumatism, what it cant do however is cure it. A course of 10 to 20 treatments in rapid succession will have a great effort on your quality of life and this can in some people last for months afterwards.
Cryotherapy is most effective when as much skin as possible is exposed. Only the extremities require protection. Please don’t wear any creams, oils or perfumes for the treatment. So we recommend (we appreciate the whole socks and underwear look is not ones best!):
For men – boxers, sock and gloves.
For women – underwear (no metal in bra), bikini, socks and gloves.
Straight away! You will feel good immediately after the treatment. You will have more energy! During the session, endorphins and serotonin are released; these substances will cause you to feel good and energised. You may also find yourself suffering less from any muscle pain you had.

Obviously the feeling post treatment varies from person to person and your physical condition. You will also notice after a few sessions your skin will feel tighter, increased weight loss and cellulite reduction.
