What is CryoTherapy

Whole body CryoTherapy is the process of exposing a large portion of a person's skin to extreme cold temperatures for short periods; usually two to three minutes.

This triggers the body's natural metabolic and circulatory responses resulting in several significant long term medical and cosmetic benefits.

How It Works

Therapeutic hyper-cooling triggers the body's survival response, resulting in increased collagen production and endocrine system stimulation.

Increased collagen production improves skin tone and smoothness while the anti-inflammatory effects of endorphins helps treat serious skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis.

Endocrine stimulation, responsible for increased endorphin production, among other effects, has many positive outcomes such as:

Improved immune function responsible for better general health, decreased stress and improved sleep

Increased metabolic rate, leading to faster weight loss

Musculoskeletal benefits including anti-inflammatory action for pain relief from arthritis, over training or injuries

Safe & Effective

Whole body Cryotherapy technology was invented in Japan in 1978.

This technology has been widely used in Europe, safely and effectively for the last 20 years. It has been studied for the treatment of depressive disorders and used extensively in several hospitals.

Weight Loss

Increased Metabolism

In the body's attempt to produce heat the metabolic rate is increased, burning 500 to 800 Kcal during the following six to eight hours after CryoTherapy treatment.

This effect last longer with more sessions as treatments are cumulative.

CryoTherapy and Health


Outer layers of the skin are briefly hyper-cooled activating collagen production in the deeper layers, producing smoother more even toned skin.

Collagen is responsible for elasticity in more youthful-looking skin. It also works to treat cellulite as well as skin disorders such as Dermatitis and Psoriasis.

Hyper-cooling causes vasoconstriction and vasodilation this action flushes toxins from deep within the skin

Pain Relief

Another survival mechanism used by the body is the releasing of endorphins for pain relief and reduction of inflammation.


Mood Elevation

Endorphins also produce feelings of euphoria.
