Lasting up to ten minutes, localized Cryotherapy is ideal for people who want to treat particular areas of the body such as a knee injury or areas of cellulite.
Localized cryotherapy is used to target areas of the body and skin that are in pain or inflamed to cold temperatures between -150°C to -160°C for about 5 – 10 minutes per location. With localized cryo, we can control the temperature, and the amount of time it is applied to specific areas that need the most treatment as opposed to our whole body cryo treatments.
Not all clients are comfortable standing in a freezing chamber so localized cryo can be more comfortable for some people. Those who have recent injuries and or post-surgical recovery, localized cryotherapy is more effective because we can apply therapeutic cold for more extended periods of time and we can penetrate deeper into the damaged tissues to help stimulate healing and repair.
