Local Cryotherapy applications are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which stimulates cold receptors all over the body in order to trigger an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, local cryotherapy is comparable to "icing", although much more powerful and efficient based on our experience. Clients frequently combine this application 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 degrees F can be reached by our devices, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 5-10 minutes, with a benefit exceeding that of hours of icing according to our clients.
