What is localised Cryotherapy?

Now available at West End, localised cryotherapy helps relieve swelling, pain and discomfort by pinpointing the area in pain and treating it with cold temperatures.

For years, athletes have treated aches and pains by icing or sitting in an ice bath. New methods of targeting the area using cryogenic devices speeds up the recovery process and is safer for the skin. The subzero temperatures applied by a trained specialist can penetrate the damaged area deeper lessening the pain and swelling faster.

The Float Space West End offers localised cryotherapy using a specialised machine called a Cryoskin. This advanced machine not only helps with pain and inflammation but also helps with weight-loss, cellulite reduction and boosting skin collagen. Learn more here.

About the Treatment

How does it work?

During a Localised Cryotherapy treatment, using a wand applicator and gel, hot and cold temperatures are used to warm up and then hyper cool select areas such as knees, hips, elbows, shoulders and back. The cold is comfortable on the skin, and can provide immediate relief to muscle spasms, aching joints and inflamed tissue. Treatment only requires 30 minutes.

How long will the results last for?

It depends on the results you are trying to achieve. We generally recommend 2-3 treatments per week to see results. Cryoskin cannot guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results. However, we can tell you that you’ll likely feel great right away because after completing your first treatment, our clients usually experience a release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy and increased flexibility that can last for several hours or even days.

How many treatments will you need?

While every Cryoskin session can be beneficial, we recommend our clients consider one of our packages to receive maximum benefits. As a maintenance program, we suggest that the series be repeated every three months. Professional athletes will often have between 4-6 sessions per week to help achieve peak performance during intense training periods.
