How does local Cryotherapy work?

Local Cryotherapy is used to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling in targeted problem areas. Almost any part of the body can be treated with localised Cryotherapy and the treatment is beneficial for both medical and beauty purposes. A local Cryotherapy session lasts for about 3 minutes where the affected area is treated to nitrogen vapour of up to -160 ˚C and the skin temperature is brought down to about 4 ˚C. This tricks the body into “fight or flight mode”; the body is not actually in hypothermia but the brain thinks that it is. The treatment provides the patient with a rush of oxygenated blood, a natural analgesic effect and a reduction in muscle tension in the treatment area. Post treatment, the microcirculation in the treatment area provide muscles with increased rates of healing and recovery, and the natural analgesic effect and relaxation of muscles allows the patient to increase their exercise tolerance, as well as strengthen the muscles and joints to reduce the possibility of injury in the future.

“Cryotherapy is my favourite tech.
It is an extraordinary piece of technology.”

Tony Robbins

Unlike whole body cryotherapy, which uses a cryotherapy sauna, local cryotherapy uses a smaller machine that includes a hand held piece allowing us to apply extremely cold air (-160 ˚C) to the troubled area. Whether you are looking to improve physical performance, reduce wrinkles or scarring, or relieve pain and inflammation, local cryotherapy is available to provide you with results. The treatment is safe, only takes minutes to complete, no after treatment downtime and you can have multiple sessions a week.
