Once ready you will be led to the cryochamber and enter and hand your robe over the top, all jewellery watches must be removed prior.

You will begin to feel the air cooling around your body firstly cooling over your shoulders and down to your legs as the time passes the air will become colder and more invigorating, you are able to move in the chamber if you like and you will be standing in a relaxed position. After the treatment is finished you will be handed your robe then be asked to step out of the chamber it doesn't take long to get your body temperature back up and we will assist with this by either getting you to ride our exercise bike or doing simple techniques to get the body and joints moving before getting dressed again.

  • Immune system and detox
    Cryotherapy helps to release large amounts of endorphins during what is known as the bodies fight or flight mode, this reduces cortisol levels and in turn helps the bodies immune system. When blood vessels start to constrict from the cold it helps to flush out toxins from your tissues when the blood returns it is toxin free filled with nutrients to enrich the tissue with healthy enzymes oxygen and nutrients
  • Migraines
    Studies show cold therapy helps deal with migraines, Using the localised machine and intensely cooling the carotid arteries in the neck can significantly be reduced.
  • Sleep disorders
    The freezing temperatures used in cryotherapy can cause the physiological hormonal responses, mainly the increase of the hormone norepinephrine, a hormone that affects your sleep/wake pattern and activates your REM sleep.
  • Pain and relief
    Cryotherapy is an effective treatment for relieving symptoms of muscle and joint pain thanks to its powerful anti-inflammatory effects it has on the body. The subzero temperature reduces nerve activity interrupting the pain signals to the brain. When used on targeted areas it works by reducing blood flow to a particular area which can significantly reduce swelling and inflammation.
  • Sporting Injuries
    By using cold therapy with our equipment we can restrict blood flow from any area reducing the inflamed area and at a much faster rate than any other method. It is an effective way in treating soft tissue damage and pain. Oxygen plays a key role in the recovery of muscles and fatigue, when cryotherapy is used the blood vessels in your body become restricted and close in on the vital organs, when the organs receive this blood flow they work to remove the lactic acid that was in your muscles, the body then improves recovery time faster once important enzymes and hormones have been pumped into the bloodstream.
  • Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia and Sciatica
    Studies have shown that regular cryotherapy can greatly improve symptoms of chronic pain and fibromyalgia by reducing inflammation and cooling the muscle fibres which help to alleviate muscle spasms,the ultra cold temperatures can reduce pain by decreasing the conduction of nerves. lowering the tissues temperature causes the decrease in the tissues metabolism and oxygen intake this helps the inflammatory process to be minimised.
  • Skin conditions
    with either the cryochamber or localised machine cold therapy can treat many skin conditions, by promoting collagen production under your skin skin can become tighter and slow down the signs of ageing, when liquid nitrogen is applied to your skin it will become tighter and blood flow becomes faster and a decrease in puffiness and dark circles around the eyes can be reduced. Spot therapy treatments can be used to treat plaques of psoriasis one study found that 72% of patients saw their psoriasis plaques clear up after one session. By hbel[ping to boost the immune system cryotherapy boosts your body's ability to heal and regenerate soothing the symptoms of eczema. Applying nitrogen to the skin over affected areas of acne can significantly reduce outbreaks by destroying the bacteria that causes it and in turn help increase collagen production leaving clients feeling much more confident.
  • Mental health
    The ice cold temperatures in the cryochamber causes the body to enter into a fight or flight mode releasing hormones such as adrenaline, endorphins and noradrenaline whilst reducing cortisol levels (a hormone linked with depression mood disorders in high levels), all the hormones that give you the energetic rush and feel good factors have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.
  • Weight loss
    One session in a cryochamber can burn anywhere between 500-800 calories by activating a process in the body called cold induced thermogenesis and raises the metabolic rate. Exposure to the sub-zero temperature can reduce fat deposits by freezing fat cells and kills them off causing them to be filtered out of the body through the liver.
