As we age and our bodies degenerate, we become more susceptible to illness and ailments which are often promoted by high levels of inflammation in the body If pain and discomfort are your everyday reality; if you’re suffering from injuries or inflammatory related conditions, then you should try cryotherapy.
A medical treatment that involves exposing patients to extremely cold, dry air (between -120 and -160 degrees Celsius) for 2 to 3 minutes, in what is referred to as CryoSauna. Although the treatment sounds extreme, it is completely safe and most people find it pleasurable. Clients experiencing the dry air find it more favourable than taking a cold shower.
Whole Body Cryotherapy is best understood when compared to exercise. While one training session has an impact on the body, it takes 6 weeks of frequent training to get fit and function on an improved level. Similarly, people experience benefits from cryotherapy sessions immediately but it also takes about 6 weeks of frequent sessions for the body to adapt and change its physiology. Only then does the body function at a superior level. People can expect to feel more energised, be less stressed and recover much faster than before.

Even those with a low tolerance for cold report it to be within their comfort range. You are advised to start with shorter sessions (30 seconds to one minute) and build it up from there.
During each session the body naturally releases endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain medication hormones which create a sense of euphoria. This causes you to feel relaxed, improves your mood, increases pleasure and minimises any pain you might have.
Any moisture on the skin can cause skin burns. A towel will be provided to dry yourself before your session.
No, you don’t. The treatment is completely dry and will not make your skin wet.
It is imperative that all the clothing you wear during your session must be completely dry to avoid skin burns. All jewellery and piercings should also be removed. You will be provided with a gown, gloves and socks.
Men: You can wear shorts, board-shorts or simply just underwear.
Woman: You can wear shorts, your bikini or just underwear.

My body has improved so much with the CryoSauna, specifically a reduction in my chronic knee pain. I have also seen an improvement with the Cryo Facial, no more facials and less wrinkles. It is very invigorating.

Majority of my life consists of me swimming everyday, sometimes even twice a day as well as a gym session. I’ve found that when I’ve done a cryo session, my recovery is twice as fast and I’m able to put in 110% effort into my next session. Cryo has become a super important role in my swimming career not only because of the fast recovery but also because it helps prevent/aid injuries. And these are just two of the many incredible benefits you get from cryotherapy.
