What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a the newest way of improving the overall health of the entire body. Cryotherapy corrects physiological processes, restores natural balance and stimulates metabolism. Cryotherapy works by plunging the body into extreme cold (-120 to -180 °C) for 2-3 minutes. The treatment provides intensive stimulation of the immune system, provokes endorphin saturation in the blood, blocks pain and induces the body’s own regeneration process. The effects of Cryotherapy can be seen and felt 5-10 minutes after the session and will last for a number of hours following the procedure.


Developed in the late 70s by a Japanese doctor to treat rheumatoid arthritis Cryotherapy has been post game recovery treatment for pro athletes for decades. Recently celebrities and the general public have begun to realize the restorative powers of an ice cold Cryo dip.

Many well-known celebrities and athletes including Demi Moore, Lebron James, Daniel Craig, Drake, Floyd Mayweather, and Cristiano Ronaldo to name a few use whole body cryotherapy to enhance their performance.

How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Whole Body Cryotherapy is the body’s exposure to extreme cold. Extreme cold activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. As a result, the body increases its metabolic rate in order to produce more heat and protect the core.

Cold sensations in the skin send a signal to the brain which causes blood to rush to the core. As blood is circulated through the core, toxins are flushed and blood becomes enriched with oxygen and all the necessary enzymes and nutrients.

When the session ends, the oxygenated nutrient and enzyme enriched blood rushes back though the body accelerating the natural recovery process. The metabolic rate and production of collagen is accelerated, while more endorphins are released.

What To Expect During Whole Body Cryotherapy

First your New You technician will give you some special socks and underwear to keep your delicate areas safe from the cold. Then you step inside our high tech cryo cabin and liquid nitrogen air (140 degrees below zero) rushes in and lowers your skin temperature to -30 degrees, penetrating the first half millimeter of the skin.

For three minutes you will slowly rotate keeping hands up above your head. After three minutes you will step out feeling reinvigorated, recovered and refreshed.

Cryotherapy FAQs

How Does Cryotherapy Work?
The Cryo Cabin uses nitrogen to lower the temperature of the surface skin to below -30 degrees for 2-3 minutes. When the skin is chilled to that temperature a signal is sent to the brain sending all the blood to the body’s core. During this process the blood is infused with more oxygen than regularly occurs. The deep freeze and subsequent return to regular temperatures gives the immune system an energy boost, increases, endorphin saturation in the blood, blocks pain receptors and encourages the body’s natural regeneration process.
Is Nitrogen Dangerous for Humans?
No, the nitrogen involved in Cryotherapy is NOT dangerous for people. Nitrogen is a non-toxic, natural gas that occurs naturally in the air we breathe.
How Will I Be Able to Tolerate Those Extreme Temperatures?
The Cryotherapy treatments are so quick they are over before you know it. Also the air generated during Cryotherapy is very dry so there is no build up of cold moisture on the skin. A lot of patients don’t even shiver during the treatment. Cryotherapy never freezes the skin or tissue, just chills it to a temperature where the regeneration process is triggered.
How Will I Feel Afterward and How Long Will the Results Last?
One of the many benefits of whole body Cryotherapy is the release of endorphins that is triggered. Endorphins are known as the ‘feel good’ hormone and are directly related to feelings of contentment and an overall positive outlook. The effects from each Cryotherapy session usually last at least 6–8 hours. A higher pain threshold, quicker recovers post-injury and more energy have also been associated with Cryotherapy. Additionally, patients can also expect a metabolism boost and the burning of 500+calories after every treatment.
Can I Get A Cryotherapy Treatment Before or After Working Out?
Absolutely. In fact, it is recommended. Patients can either opt for a whole body Cryotherapy treatment after a workout which reduces inflammation and speeds up the recovery process. Patients can also choose to do a whole body Cryotherapy session before a workout to enhance energy, and increase range of motion and flexibility.
Can I Catch a Cold From Cryotherapy?
This is a good question, no, Cryotherapy will not give you a cold, in fact it may very well prevent you from getting sick or help you recover from a sickness faster. When the skin experiences the regenerative deep freeze the internal body temperature raises for a short time. The increase activates the body’s detoxification process which is integral in combating illnesses such as colds.
Can Someone with Claustrophobia Use Cryotherapy?
Yes. There is no need to worry, the Cryo Cabin is open at the top and your head remains outside of the Cryo Cabin the entire time. The door is not locked allowing the you to exit the Cryo Cabin if you begin to panic or experience any discomfort.
How Often should I Book a Cryotherapy Session?
For the best results 2-3 times a week is optimal. This can be increased for athletes during rigorous training.
Who Should NOT Use Whole Body Cryotherapy?
While Cryotherapy offers many benefits, people with the following conditions should avoid Cryotherapy: Pregnancy, severe hypertension, heart issues, bleeding disorders, and uncontrolled seizures. Your New You Cryotherapy technician can answer any questions you have regarding treatment and safety.
