About Cryotherapy and the CryoCabin

Whole Body Cryotherapy also known as a Cryosauna or Cryo Chamber

Cryotherapy was originally researched by a Japanese scientist in the 1970s. The scientist, Dr. Yamaguchi, tested flash cooling humans in extreme cold temperatures. His findings were very promising and, over the past 45 years, the technology - originally designed for elite athletes - has now been honed and improved for use by everyday people.

A cryo session is completely safe. The cabin fills with nitrogen cooled air until it reaches a temperature of -150° Celsius. The client then enters the cabin for 2 and a half minutes. The goal is to trick your body to activate it's natural healing ability. The cost of a cryo session is between $30 and $60.


Benefits of Cryotherapy

Based off of 80 peer reviewed studies

Once inside the cryo chamber, your body reacts to the extreme cold by pushing blood from the extremities into the body's core to protect the vital organs. Upon exiting the cabin, your body peripherates blood back to the extremities causing vaso-constriction and increased blood circulation. Your body will also begin naturally warming itself up causing an increase in metabolic rate.

What does this mean?

The anti-inflammatory effect gives the body relief from inflammation-related pain. It increases blood flow promoting the body to heal faster. The hastened metabolism naturally burns calories for the next 6-12 hours. Other reported benefits include improved sleep, less headaches and migraines and more endurance while exercising.
