Cryotherapy FAQs

What is Cryotherpy?

Cryotherapy is a non-invasive technique used to stimulate the body’s own natural physiological and biological reactions in order to enjoy a number of varied natural health benefits. Ice baths have been one form of Cryotherapy and now you're able to gain all the incredible benefits by isolating individual body areas turning what used to be an unpleasant and painful therapy, into a refreshing, revitalizing and enjoyable one.

How does Cryotherapy work?

Cryotherapy exposes an area of the body to extreme cold temperatures which trigger a reaction that increases your metabolic rate, prompting your body to work harder and repair itself. The skin exposure to the extreme temperature also has an anti-inflammatory effect, decreasing pain as well as releasing endorphins. It’s like your body is able to hit a ‘reset’ button!

Does the treatment hurt?

No it doesn't. The therapy actually promotes relaxation and unlike ice packs, there's no pain or discomfort involved. Towards the end of the session, you may get a short ‘pins and needles’ sensation which disappears immediately after the treatment.

What does the treatment involve?

CryotherapyUK offers this cutting edge therapy with temperatures that reach –160 degrees produced via a liquid nitrogen tank. The nitrogen is filtered and pushed out through a funnel in the form of an ice-cold vapour that's held by our professionally trained therapists who gently massage the treated area to encourage the lymphatic system and to bring some warmth to the skin.

What conditions can Cryotherapy be used for?

Cryotherapy was originally and widely used by professional athletes and sports stars looking to speed up their recovery time. Now the therapy is being used for a whole host of reasons including weight loss, skin tightening, cellulite reduction, acne, rheumatoid arthritis and alopecia. There has also been medical journals published on the benefits of Cryotherapy for the treatment of anxiety and depression.

How will I feel after the treatment?

During every session, your body releases endorphins which are hormones that make you feel good and increase your energy levels. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days.

How many Cryotherapy sessions should I have?

Everyone is unique and it depends on your condition, however we recommend that for optimum results you should initially take a minimum of 6 treatments in close succession with no longer than a week in between each treatment to maximize your results. Following this, it’s possible to have you fewer treatment spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (e.g. once every other week).

Is Cryotherapy suitable for everyone to use?
