The Local Cryotherapy Treatment
Local Cryotherapy is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which stimulates cold receptors all over the body in order to trigger an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, local cryotherapy is comparable to “icing”, although much more powerful and efficient based on our experience. Clients frequently combine this application with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”. With temperatures as low as -240 degrees Fahrenheit, a local area treatment generally takes about 5-10 minutes, with the benefits outweighing those of traditional ice-bath treatments based on client feedback.
