What is Localized Cryotherapy?
Localized Cryotherapy (LC) is an extremely effective modality when used in conjunction with Whole Body Cryotherapy. LC is ideal for someone not physically mobile or healthy enough for Whole Body Cryotherapy. This treatment is specifically geared towards a particular area that is causing you pain. LC is commonly used for spot treatments to reduce pain/inflammation, repair tissue damage, aids in post surgery recovery, improves blood circulation and skin tone.
How does it work?
During your treatment, you will be asked to either lie down on a bed on your back or flat on your stomach. Depending on which body part we will be treating; you might be asked to change into a bathrobe which will be provided by our facility. A cryotechnician will use a hand-held device in which he/she is trained in to administer the appropriate stream of nitrogen vapor onto a client’s body part. These treatments last 3 to 6 minutes with operating temperature of -256F.
