WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?
Cryotherapy is a quick, effective and non-invasive therapy which involves cooling the body in an environment of between -110 and -190 degrees Celsius for up to 3 minutes.
It is a safe treatment which is ideal for reducing inflammation, promoting rehabilitation and repair of muscle and tissue, pain management, recovery, immune boosting, increasing metabolism and energy, weight loss and general wellbeing.
WHO CAN BENEFIT
THE ADVANCE REHAB EXPERIENCE
Prior to your treatment, you will meet with one of our friendly and professional staff who will go over your medical history and treatment goals with you.
During this time we encourage you to ask any questions you may have about cryotherapy or the treatment process. You will have the opportunity to view a short video introducing you to cryotherapy, and specifically the treatment experience. You’ll then be shown to a change room to change into a gown, gloves and socks ready for your treatment to begin.
You will be in the cryosauna for a maximum of three minutes, and for the duration of your treatment you will be supervised at all times.
