Localised Cryotherapy stimulation involves the exposure of extreme low temperatures to a specific area of the body and face, using our world leading technology localised cryotherapy machine.
A session lasting only 5 to 15 minutes and has benefits that exceed hours of traditional icing. Applied directly to affected areas to reduce pain and inflammation, increase cell recovery, rejuvenate the skin and decrease cellulite. Also used for Cryo facials to reduce the appearance of scars, acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and tighten the skin.
Almost any part of the body can be treated externally with the localized cryotherapy treatment. Some of the most common treated areas include the neck, upper back, lower back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and heel for plantar fasciitis.
A stimulation session post training will instantly reduce fatigue and muscle pain. Sports injuries also respond immediately as each session reduces both pain and inflammation, allowing for more rapid and effective kinesiotherapy protocols.
Localised Cryotherapy is frequently paired with Whole Body Cryotherapy to relieve problem areas from both inside and out.
- Casual session (Body/Cryo Facial): $40
- Package 5x sessions: $160
At extreme low temperatures, thermo receptors on the skin are stimulated due to the intense energy in the stream. Strong signals are sent to the brain, which are faster than pain receptors. As the skin is cooled to the necessary temperatures, the trauma cycle is activated. Local Cryo stimulation triggers vasoconstriction followed by rapid vasodilation providing the patient with a natural analgesic effect alongside ongoing micro-circulations being driven around the treatment area. The metabolic surge continues for over 4 hours after each procedure.
Cryo stimulation involves the activation of natural body defenses making it totally safe. The short time exposure to extreme low temperatures does not affect the core temperature of the body. The treatments are environmentally friendly.
Cryo stimulation has a natural analgesic effect on the body, therefore the feeling of pain is significantly reduced post treatment. Lower levels of pain encourage natural movement. Increasing the strength and flexibility of joints and bones is key to increase metaboLic processes, as inflammation stays in the joint.
Unlike other ‘cooling’ treatments such as the use of ice packs where the patient is resting for a long period of time, each treatment generally lasts from 5 to 15 minutes per area. Cryo stimulation reduces injury recovery timeframes so that athletes can resume rehabilitation earlier and lower drug intake.
Bathing in the streams of cold air feels much more comfortable than usual methods involving cold water because at super low temperatures the stream contains almost zero moisture. As a bonus, the cold triggers the productions of endorphins called “feel-good hormones”, which induce feelings of euphoria. This encourages return visits.
