Franchise opportunities

If you are interested in a franchise for sale that is in sync with Australia’s growing healthcare needs, then running a Cryotherapy studio could be the business idea for you.

With our ageing population and an increasing trend towards obesity, more Australians are searching for practical and effective solutions to looking and feeling their best. Acknowledging this, the Australian Government is making a significant effort to encourage Australians to adopt a healthier lifestyle, resulting in a greater demand for fitness products and services.

Cryotherapy is not just for elite athletes and this is the encouraging aspect of our business model. An increasing number of older people have the time to work on their fitness and want to remain fit so they can better enjoy their retirement. From weekend warriors to those wanting a faster weight loss program or innovative beauty treatment, Cryotherapy has wide-ranging appeal and benefits.

In particular, the health industry remains a major area of opportunity. According to Australia’s National Health Survey, in 2014−15:

  • 15.3% had arthritis (3.5 million people)
  • 4 million Australians reported having anxiety or a mood disorder
  • 63.4% aged 18 years and over were overweight or obese (11.2 million people).

The opportunities as a Cryo Franchisee are only limited by your imagination and we are dedicated to keeping the business model simple and the cost of entry reasonable.

Our cryotherapy technology

The Cryosauna is a single-person cryogenic chamber used for individual treatments of Whole Body Cryotherapy. During the treatment, the temperature is regulated by the operating technician usually to −140°C. The treatment time ranges from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. The Cryosauna is equipped with an electric lift, so the client inside is submerged in the liquid nitrogen fumes up to his/her neck, while the head is held above the cryogenic air. This enables the client to be in continuous communication with the technician, which improves the client’s overall sense of safety. The cabin of the Cryosauna is equipped with a pivoting safety door, which can be opened at any time for added safety. The Cryosauna features a heated ventilating system to minimise moisture residues and to vent out used nitrogen gas. The geometric design of the inner cabin optimises convection of cryogenic temperatures for improved treatment results.
