This therapeutic method exposes the body or parts of the body to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. There are two ways in which cryotherapy can be applied to the human body;
Localised - Targeted Cryotherapy to a small area on the body through ice packs, ice balls, cryo guns using liquid nitrogen or electric to cool, ice sprays & ice massage.
Whole Body (WBC) - Whole body exposure through a tub for an ice bath or more advanced machines called cryo chambers where you’re in a small room or chamber that exposes you to extreme cold temperatures of minus 125F.
Visit our cutting-edge, top-of-the-range Cryochamber and feel ready for anything. Feel your mood improve and your aches and pains soothed. Our Cryotherapy chamber sits at around -87 degrees celsius. You spend up to 3 minutes inside the chamber - but you can get out at any time you want.

When you arrive, you will be greeted by a member of staff and taken through the cryotherapy suite, we will ensure you have completed a consultation form to make sure you are safe for the treatment and you will be asked to review the health & safety terms one final time. You will then be advised on which protective gear to wear as well as provided with a safety demonstration of the chamber. Then you will go for your treatment.
Bring with you long socks, shorts/leggings and a T-shirt. Ladies should bring a sports bra, as the metal that is in most normal bras will be harmful if it gets too cold. Similarly, jewellry will need to be removed before entering the chamber.
There is parking near our building, but no guarantee of spaces as they are pay & display. There are plenty of parking lots within walking distance of our unit.
Luckily, we have a lovely coffee shop and restaurant right next to our office block called Nova Scotia. Given that we are situated right on the Albert Dock, there are many coffee shops and restaurants for you to choose from.

RISKS OF WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
Fluctuations in blood pressure (due to peripheral vasoconstriction) may cause your blood pressure to increase briefly by up to 10 points systolically during treatment. This effect should reverse after the end of the procedure, as peripheral circulation returns to normal, allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), claustrophobia, anxiety, activation of some viral conditions (cold sores) etc. due to stimulation of the immune system, temporary redness of the skin, chilblain/skin burns/scarring (very rare).
