I have been thrashing my body this week and was in need of instant muscle recovery and tonight I’m not feeling the burn as I was today before my CRYO session after those squats at the gym this week
CRYO client Bonnee
Following my CRYO sessions I love how I instantly feel energised and rejuvenated. CRYO completely gets rid of my jet lag when I travel and the staff are always professional and friendly
CRYO client Jason
CRYO is working wonders for my osteoarthritis induced chronic back pain and the pain I get in my ankles from old injuries. I also love the natural endorphin high following treatments. The CRYO studio is state of the art with highly trained and personable CRYO Technicians
CRYO client Scott
Exposing the body to intense cold for a short period activates a powerful survival mechanism that causes the blood vessels near the skin to contract (vasoconstriction) and re-route blood to major organs to maintain your core body temperature. During this process, your blood fills with oxygen, nutrients and healing enzymes. Following your treatment, the blood vessels dilate (vasodilation) and the enriched blood rushes back to the skin and muscle tissues. Oxygenated blood is circulated and anti-inflammatories released to help relieve pain and soothe swollen joints. In addition to anti-inflammatories, the release of ‘feel good’ endorphins means you will leave CRYO feeling positive, refreshed and relaxed.

Yes, we are very proud to be the first in Australia to have installed the safest and most technologically advanced cryotherapy machine on the market – the CryoCabin. The mist encircling your body inside the Cryocabin is nitrogen, a non-toxic gas that makes up over 70% of the air we breathe. Your head is above the top of the Cryocabin at all times and your hands and feet are well protected by insulating boots and gloves. A highly trained CRYO Technician stays with you throughout the session monitoring your body’s response. Oxygen monitors, alarms and other safe guards are also used to track your progress. You are able to leave the Cryocabin at any time. Rest assured, client safety is our highest priority.
This really depends on the reasons you are wanting to use CRYO and also dependant on how your body uniquely responds to the treatment. For this reason, we recommend that new clients trial CRYO over around 3 sessions. For general wellbeing, we recommend 1-2 sessions per week. For pain management, muscle repair and recovery and injury management, we recommend as often as your body feels you need the treatment. For skin rejuvenation, raising of the metabolism and accelerated injury recovery, we recommend 3 sessions per week.
Generally CRYO is a safe and effective treatment for most people, however it is not suitable for women who are pregnant or anyone who has:
