Whether you’re an athlete looking to enhance performance, or simply seeking relief from chronic pain or fatigue, WBC can be your secret weapon. 

How does Whole-Body Cryotherapy work?

Whole-Body Cryotherapy causes a reduction of tissue temperature and in core body temperature. This causes a shock to the body and, in turn, activates the nervous system through rising norepinephrine levels, increased blood pressure, and an increased heart rate. During this extreme cold, blood vessels constrict and therefore blood flow is reduced. This means that once you leave the chamber, your blood vessels expand and blood rushes to areas in need, helping with inflammation and leading to an increased presence of anti-inflammatory proteins. Muscle and tissue repair is enhanced by reduced inflammation from highly enriched, oxygenated blood, improved blood circulation and lymphatic detoxification.  (suitable for individuals aged 18+).

How does Localised Cryotherapy work?

Localised Cryotherapy harnesses the power of ultra-low temperatures applied directly to targeted areas of the body. This innovative technique prompts muscle contractions, boosting blood circulation to the treated region, thereby alleviating inflammation and expediting cellular rejuvenation. Its benefits extend to enhancing physical performance, delivering enduring pain relief, mitigating inflammation, facilitating swift muscle recovery, enhancing blood circulation and skin vitality, diminishing wrinkles and fine lines, as well as minimising the appearance of scars.

BEAUTY

Cryo facials involve cooling down the skin on the face, scalp and neck. These local cryotherapy treatments work from within to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as get rid of blemishes and spots. Cryo facials improve skin tone, reduce redness and puffiness.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spot cryotherapy is a great tool to enhance post-surgery or post-injury recovery. It encourages and speeds up your body’s healing process and repairs tissue damage.

SPORTS

Many athletes use local cryotherapy device for prevention as well as to treat injuries common for people who engage in sports or physical activity. Cold naturally relieves pains and aches, and a rush of oxygenated blood due to improved circulation promotes healing and recovery.

Research Articles

Cryotherapy has gained popularity among athletes across many sports. The main goals of cryotherapy, and specifically whole-body cryotherapy, are for injury prevention and counteracting negative inflammatory symptoms following athletic performance in hopes of improving recovery.

Evidence of symptomatic treatment for fibromyalgia (FM) is very low. Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) modulates different neurotransmitters, which might have a role in pain alleviation and could exert an effect on FM. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of WBC for the control of pain and impact of disease in FM. For this we run an open, randomized, crossover trial of Cryosense TCT™ cabin vs rest. Patients with FM according to ACR criteria were recruited consecutively from general practices. Trial endpoints were change (∆) in pain after 2 and 4 weeks, measured by a visual analogue scale (VAS), ∆ burden of disease, evaluated by the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), and severity of FM, measured by the Combined Index of Severity of Fibromyalgia (ICAF). Within group differences, sequence and period effects were tested with Student’s t or Mann–Whitney U tests. Multiple linear regression models were used to adjust effect by baseline differences between groups. Sixty patients were included in the trial. A period effect was noted, with residual effect of WBC; therefore, only results from the first sequence were analysed. ∆VAS pain, ∆FIQ and ∆ICAF scores were significantly larger in the WBC group after the first period (3.0 vs 0.3 in ∆VAS pain; 32.1 vs 0.4 in ∆FIQ; 13.7 vs 0.07 in ∆ICAF; all p < 0.001), and were confirmed after adjustment. In conclusion, WBC with a Cryosense TCT cabin may be a useful adjuvant therapy for FM; further studies on long-term effect and compared to other physical therapies are warranted.

In the professional world of sports whole body cryotherapy (WBC) has been used for some decades. WBC leads to better exercise capacity, more regular circadian rhythm, improved quality of sleep and less tiredness in athletes. Recently studies appeared which measured the effect of WBC on mental health. No meta-analysis was conducted on this subject yet. Currently there is a lack of low-cost, easily accessible treatment possibilities for most psychiatric disorders. This study shows that there is preliminary evidence for efficacy of WBC as an add-on intervention for mental health problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cryotherapy has various applications. Starting from the 1970s it was used for rheumatoid arthritis treatment, pain relief, inflammation reduction, and for different chronic conditions. It was widely used not only as a treatment, but also as a means of faster recovery of athletes after physical overloads. Later, the positive effects on skin and mental health were noticed. Since then cryotherapy ceased to be accessible to a narrow circle of people and started to be used by different categories of people – from professional athletes to women who want to look better,  people who suffer from different diseases, etc.

There are 2 safety things that usually bother people who are going to try cryotherapy for the first time: is liquid nitrogen dangerous and are cryosaunas safe (as a machine)?

As for liquid nitrogen, it is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (78% of the air is made up of nitrogen). Nitrogen is used for a number of surgical applications; it is even used in modern cooking in gourmet restaurants to prepare exquisite food. However, using it in a cryosauna it is cooled down, so the gas is cold. Therefore, there are a few considerations that need to be made to make sure that everyone is safe – to remove from the body jewellery and any other metal, and ensure that your skin is dry from moisturisers, oils or sweat.

Talking about cryosauna safety itself, much has been done to make this machine 100% safe for its users. Cryomed has developed an innovative safety system (Accident Prevention System) and was the first one on the market of cryotherapy devices who implemented it. It consists of the human-position sensor in the cabin, the door-opening sensor, the session emergency stop button, and ventilation. 

  • The ultrasonic sensor – controls the user’s position in the cabin. It will not allow the procedure to start unless the operator raises the lift step to the desired height. This is made to avoid breathing in nitrogen vapours.
  • Session emergency stop and ventilation – if anything abnormal occurs during the procedure, the cryo safe mechanism instantly stops the session and activates the ventilation. 
  • The door-opening sensor – if the cabin door opens by accident, another sensor will prevent excessive nitrogen vapours from entering the premises by stopping the procedure.

All these features give us the right to say that cryosaunas are safe for users.

Cryotherapy is a safe and painless way to solve your health problems or to prevent them. One can do it every day and even twice a day if there is a need, there are no restrictions concerning the frequency of cryo sessions (except common sense). But in most cases it is not needed.  

People who are just starting their cryotherapy journey are recommended to get in a cryosauna 2-3 times per week for about 3 weeks to give the body time to get used to extreme colds. 

Athletes usually use cryotherapy after physical overloads and hard training to recover faster and eliminate muscle pain. 

People who have no serious health problems to solve and want to use cryotherapy just for general wellness or weight-loss are recommended to do 3-5 sessions per week for one month and more. To get cryotherapy benefits for mood, energy levels or better sleep, it will be enough to have 1-3 sessions per week. 

Those who suffer from chronic pain (for example, arthritic pain) and general inflammation can go for cryo sessions for 3-5 sessions per week for at least 2 months. 

For post-surgical recovery it is recommended to have at least 3 sessions per week for 3 weeks.

Local cryotherapy is a short-term application of extremely low temperatures to a particular area of a patient’s body. For these purposes, local cryotherapy devices, such as Cryofan, are used. The effect of local cryotherapy is not as extensive as that of whole-body cryotherapy, but this makes it more beneficial in some areas where there is no need to affect the whole body by cold. 

Localised or spot cryotherapy is more effective than whole body cryotherapy in the treatment of  particular most affected areas. It is used to minimise pain, promote healing, treat wounds and swelling. This type of cryotherapy can be applied to any specific injured part of the body such as the ankles, shoulders, feet, elbows, knees, and neck. Seems that local cryotherapy is ideal for athletes and active people who are susceptible to injury. But localised cryotherapy has its application in other spheres, like the beauty industry and medicine. 

In medicine it is used in different chronic conditions to inhibit inflammation, to reduce pain and spasms, to decrease muscle tension, to improve blood circulation, for immunomodulation, etc. Localised cryotherapy has shown good results among people who suffer from chronic pain due to arthritis or inflammatory conditions and those who are recovering from an injury or surgery. 
Localised cryo sessions are prescribed to people who suffer from acnepsoriasiseczema, as they help to reduce redness of the skin, irritation and itching. Also, it helps to minimise scars.

The concept of local cryotherapy is based on the short-term application of extremely low temperatures to a particular area of a patient’s body. This procedure causes muscles to contract, increasing the blood flow to the treated area, soothing inflammation, and speeding up cell regeneration. Localised cryotherapy helps to improve physical performance, gives long-term pain relief, reduces inflammation, provides fast muscle recovery, improves blood circulation and skin tone, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and minimises scars.

During a localised cryotherapy session, which lasts only for 8-10 minutes, the target area is affected by cold and dry air. After a session the body begins to warm up, the affected area gets back the recovering flow of oxygenated blood. Any part of the body can be given this procedure externally like the lower back, upper back, neck, shoulder, wrist, elbow, hip, ankle, knee, and heels. Localised cryo sessions are also used to decrease the issue of acne, scars, psoriasis, eczema, etc. 

The effect is immediate and could last up to 7 days. 

Localised cryotherapy sessions don’t last long – it takes about 5-8 minutes with a working temperature of -130°C to achieve and maintain the desired skin-surface temperature. This time could increase depending on the size of the area that is needed to be affected by the cold.

Compared to whole body cryotherapy sessions that last about 2-3 minutes, localised cryotherapy procedures take much more time. This is due to the fact that in the cryosauna the temperature is about -180°C and the cold affects all the body. At the same time, local cryotherapy sessions are more beneficial for people who are afraid of closed spaces (that’s why they can’t use cryosauna) or have reduced mobility. 

As for the frequency of local cryo sessions, it is recommended to have them 1-3 times a week. 

Despite the fact that most of the clients begin to feel the benefits of localised cryotherapy immediately, to keep the benefits occurring they need to have a course of cryo sessions lasting several weeks (depending on your needs).

Localised cryotherapy uses low-temperature gas streams, consisting mainly of liquid nitrogen vapour. As it contains no moisture, the patient doesn’t feel real discomfort or pain, unlike other traditional cold treatments (ice packs, ice baths). With ice, the affected area is usually left numb and stiff until it has warmed up. But local cryotherapy doesn’t actually freeze the muscle tissues; it only results in the perception of freezing; that’s why there is no post-treatment pain or stiffness. During the treatment, the only feeling that a client may experience is the ‘pins and needles’ sensation, which disappears quickly after the session.

One more distinguishing feature of localised cryotherapy is that there is no downtime after this procedure. Once the procedure has finished the patient is free to move and engage the targeted area immediately.

The effect of localised cryotherapy is immediate and could last up to 7 days. But for a more stable result, it is better to have local cryo sessions every 3-4 weeks.
