What is Whole Body Cryotherapy, who does it and why is it special?
Are you looking for pain relief?
Do you need to enhance your sports performance?
Are you needing stress relief?
Are you having sleepless nights?
These are just a few of the symptoms that cryotherapy can help with. Whole Body Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that triggers the body’s natural fight or flight response to accelerate recovery and decrease inflammation throughout the body. After just 2-3 minutes of exposure to the extreme cold (3 minutes max), you will notice a boost in energy, relief of muscle and/or joint pain, and many other positive benefits.
Our Cryotherapy chamber is -110 Degrees Celsius, and our Pre-chamber is -60. The body releases endorphins at this cold temperature, which help reduce stress and activate the body’s natural pain-relief system.
After one session, the benefits will become evident almost right away. If done regularly, it becomes more effective and with more lasting effects. In fact, many athletes used therapy two times a day.
Cryotherapy Science & Studies
When your body is exposed to the intense low-temperature flash, endorphins and an anti-inflammatory response are triggered. This makes it greatly useful for pain management, which explains why so many athletes use it.
And in some places, whole body cryotherapy is used to help with disorders such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, some sleep disorders, and even some mental and emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Endorphins and Their Affect on the Body
Essentially, endorphins are hormones, or chemical messengers, that the body produces to relieve stress and strain. This hormone stimulates the increased production of dopamine, responsible for the pleasure effects associated with endorphins.
Your body releases endorphins naturally during physical activity. This helps your body reduce the sensation of pain. You also get a positive feeling in your body. These compounds are known as natural painkillers since they activate opioid receptors in the brain that help reduce discomfort and pain.
Endorphin production also gets stimulated through cryotherapy, releasing a cocktail of well-being throughout that has all the benefits we will be mentioning later. The sensation of well-being and pain reduction system are felt almost immediately.
Reviews & Results
Cannot thank Max and the team enough for making me feel so comfortable for my first ever Cryotherapy session. Very impressed with the kit and the measures put in place to adhere to government social distancing guidelines.
Amazing experience to visit this cryotherapy chamber at -111degrees c. Max was really helpful, explaining what to expect and even giving us a choice of music!
Felt terrific afterwards.
