What to Expect

Welcome to Cryotherapy!

On this page we outline the basic concept of cryotherapy, give you some tips to make your sessions comfortable for you and give you guidance on what to expect and wear.

What is Cryotherapy?

Immersing the body in a whole-body cryotherapy chamber, containing super-cooled air, brings about tremendous benefits to our wellbeing.

Exposing our skin to these temperatures brings about a series of physiological reactions, that help the body to repair, recover and reinvigorate.

A drug-free intervention, cryotherapy offers so much to enable sufferers of particular ailments to receive relief, athletes to perform at their optimum levels for longer, and help promote wellbeing through relaxation and stress relief.
