Local Cryotherapy treatments are used to decrease inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas and subsequently reduce pain. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which triggers an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response in the body, local cryotherapy triggers an external response, similar to an uber, accelerated, ultra-cold ice pack.
Clients frequently combine this treatment with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”. As temperatures as low as -240°F. can be reached by both treatments, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 4-6 minutes.
