WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?
Originally introduced in Japan in the 1970s as a way to treat rheumatoid arthritis, Cryotherapy came into mainstream use in Europe in the 1990s by physical therapistS, doctors, chiropractors, and other healthcare professionals, and subsequently was brought to the United States in 2009. Our cutting edge mobile cryotherapy device targets areas of the body with extremely low temperatures (approximately -140 degrees). Within 5 minutes this innovative, cold treatment will result in a countless amount of health benefits. Localized Cryotherapy targets a specific area and is used for swelling and inflammation from a variety of causes such as tough work-outs, an acute/chronic injury, recovery, anti-aging and migraine relief. In many cases it is used in conjunction with rehab and treatments directed by other heath professionals. It can make rehab easier, more effective and sometimes shortens the time needed to recover.

Release of hormones boost energy, increase metabolism, and promotes better sleep resulting in a healthy, refreshed since of self.
Speeds up recovery by constricting blood vessels in the targeted area.

Helps treat migraines by cooling and numbing nerves in the neck area
Cold therapy is also known to have an analgesic (pain relieving) effect on the nervous system
How long is a Spot Session?
Spot sessions will last approximately 10 minutes, depending on the area we are working on and the stage of recovery of the injury.
For example, an acutely injured area will require more time than an area that has been treated previously and is healing.
How Often Should I Have One?
We recommend a spot session daily, several times in a row post injury or surgery and then as needed to maintain relief. This can last several weeks depending on the injured area.
How much does a Local/Spot Cryotherapy treatment cost?
A Single Session is $30. We have packages also for multiple sessions.
