Crytherapy - Full Body Sauna
Cryotherapy uses extremely low temperatures to increase cell rejuvenation, and can be used to tone the skin, minimise signs of ageing and assist in fat reduction.
As well as being used for sports injury and pain relief , full body Cryotherapy is also beneficial as a beauty treatment. In general Cryotherapy is a process where the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures ranging between -200°F and -256 °F. When used in the right way through the correct technology and methods, it’s possible to also see benefits in fat reduction and skin toning. Treatments can be applied to specific targeted areas of the face and body, or our full body Cryo Sauna is where you sit/stand in a booth and the treatment is applied to the whole body.
Cryotherapy is regularly endorsed by celebrities who claim that it improves their appearance. For those who feature in the public eye, Cryotherapy is a great way to remain fresh-faced and youthful, thanks to its anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation abilities. Exposing the body to such low temperatures can help to burn fat, reduce cellulite and sculpt areas that are less toned, as this extreme cold triggers regulatory processes within the body which results in increased blood flow, increased collagen production and elimination of toxins.
The top benefits of Cryotherapy treatments are:
- Improves oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin’s surface
- Accomplishes skin radiance
- Delivers a defined look
- Long-lasting results
- Training and rehabilitation recovery
Additional benefits from Cryotherapy Full Body Sauna are:
- Tightens the skin and reduces cellulite
- Minimises pores
- Increased collagen production to minimise fine lines and wrinkles
- Treatment of skin conditions
- Releases endorphins to relieve anxiety and improve your mood
In addition to these treatments we offer a full range of traditional beauty therapy. Our qualified beauty therapists are all experienced in treating different skin types and conditions, and are happy to offer you advice on your personal requirements.
Cost of Cryotherapy
The Cryo Sauna is £45 per session. Discounts available for multiple sessions booked.
What is a Cryo Sauna?
A Cryo Sauna is a metal chamber that is open on the top and equipped with a door and a platform that adjusts to your height. The sauna uses cryogenically cooled air to create icy cold air that quickly lowers your skin’s temperature in less than 60 seconds. For the three minutes you slowly turn while in the cabin so that the subzero air evenly envelops your body.
Is Cryotherapy dangerous?
Cryotherapy treatments are not dangerous; the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin. A trained operator is always present during the treatment so to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.
Are there any reasons why I shouldn’t do a Cryotherapy session?
Anyone who has unmanaged hypertension or a pacemaker, has a history of or is being treated for cancer, has deep vein thrombosis, has a cold allergy, or is pregnant should not use cryotherapy. If you have questions about whether you have any risk, you should first ask your healthcare provider before using a Cryo Sauna.
Is it comfortable?
Our treatments are limited to three minutes, this gives you the the optimal level of exposure to see maximum impact but also ensures that you are comfortable with the temperature changes. Describing the feeling of a Cryo Sauna treatment is like standing naked in front of a freezer on a hot day.
How long does a Cryotherapy session last?
Most of our treatments last for three minutes, however some of our NormaTec and facial treatments can last up to 60 minutes depending on your requirements.
I’m claustrophobic. Can I still use the Cryo Sauna?
Our Cryo Saunas are open at the top and the footplate height is adjusted to fit the height of the client, your head and neck are always above the opening so that you are not totally enveloped. The Cryo Sauna is also equipped with a door that is closed but not locked, so you are always in control whilst in the chamber.
What do I wear during my treatment?
Due to the extremely low temperatures that the body is exposed to, our clients must wear foot and hand protection plus either undergarments or a bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing is removed, leaving the cooling air to penetrate the skin.
Do I shower before or after my treatment?
Neither is necessary, our treatments are completely dry. However, many of our clients use Cryo after a workout, which could be before they shower or after they shower.
How soon after my treatment can I expect results?
Results can vary dependent on the individual, and Cryotherapy does not guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results. However, we can tell you that you’ll likely feel great right away because after completing the treatment clients usually experience a release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that can last for several hours or even days.
Is one Cryo treatment enough?
Whilst every Cryo session can be beneficial, we recommend our clients consider one of our packages containing 10-20 sessions over the course of a month. As a maintenance program, we suggest that the series be repeated every three months. Professional athletes will often have up to two sessions a day to help achieve peak performance.
