about the treatment
Our localized cryo targets a specific muscle area or joint directly with cold air for a few minutes to decrease pain and inflammation, while improving blood circulation in the affected area.
While whole body cryotherapy triggers an internal systematic anti-inflammatory response, local cryo is a more powerful and efficient form of “icing.” Local cryotherapy is used to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation in specifically targeted areas. Temperatures of Localised Cryo can reach as low as -60 celsius, generating a high-intensity reaction called thermal shock.
Local cryotherapy fights worn-out, overworked and inflamed areas of the body by promoting a thermo-shock reaction which causes retraction and then expansion of the blood vessels. During this process, accelerated blood flow, healing enzymes and ‘life supporting’ hormones are dispatched to the treated area. This can help to reduce inflammation, pain and muscle tension, boost collagen production and flush toxins from the skin. Thermo-shock can also kill everything that does not belong in the skin tissue – whether that be infection or disorders caused by bacteria, virus or fungus.
Who is it for?
Local cryotherapy is an ideal treatment for anyone with pain and inflammation in specific regions of the body. Anyone who suffers from chronic pain due to arthritis, sclerosis, injuries or illness can benefit from localized cryotherapy. Patients recovering from surgery on a knee, hip or shoulder joint often have cryotherapy treatments to alleviate pain and speed up the healing process.

All our treatments are well tested and completely safe. During your treatments, there will always be an educated therapist to guide you and make sure you go through the treatments under controlled and safe conditions.
Anyone with the conditions below should not receive treatments:

- Very poor circulation
- Severe diabetes
There are, in general, no side effects apart from the amount you urinate increases slightly three days after treatment, along with colour alteration in your urine.
In a few cases, there have been reported side-effects such as localised redness that disappeared after a few hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often this is a reaction to certain cosmetic products used by clients. Therefore, to limit these risks, please avoid the use of cosmetic products before coming in for treatment.
In rare cases, some report experiences of delayed onset muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals. Discomfort has, however, been noted to disappear later that same evening.
In very rare cases, there have been reports of local pain (however limited to two to three hours).
LED Light Therapy and Cryo Facial combined can help treat a variety of skin issues, including acne, dermatitis, dull skin, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and scarring. With consistent use it can also reduce signs of ageing, including wrinkles, age spots and sun-damage.
Consistency is key when it comes to sustainable results.
With our EMS training for example, it is breaking down muscle tissue 18 times faster than a conventional workout, so it all depends on how fast your body is to recover, and how you fuel and rest. With the hot and cold treatment, you will get instant gratification compared to the other treatments that need to build up over time. However, after a few treatments you will see and feel calm and relaxed in your body as your whole nervous system is in a calm state.
No, you don’t need to. This procedure is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet.
