Localised Cryotherapy (Cryo Jet Therapy)
Cryotherapy stimulates the body’s natural healing response especially against inflammation, swelling and pain. But it also improves blood flow which helps get rid of toxins, therefore boosting your immune system. When you can target a specific area, you can achieve faster results.
Localized Cryotherapy, targeted to a specific muscle area or spasm can be applied via a localized device for 2-3 minutes depending on the area. Localized cold air treatments reach -32° to -40° C, and drop skin temperature rapidly without any discomfort, as our practitioners are specifically trained to assess the treated area and to follow the research with regards to accurately administrating a completely safe and effective recommended dose. This has been demonstrated to produce beneficial results and flushes the tissue of fluid and waste rapidly, thus reducing inflammation and improving range of motion, causing a massive return of regenerative blood supply as the rewarming occurs quickly after application.
Unlike whole-body cryo chamber, our localized cryotherapy devices deliver a targeted cooling to specific areas of the body undergoing application. An example of localized treatment would occur with a low back, neck, hamstring, ankle, knee, wrist, or elbow pain.
