It’s time to chill out! No, seriously—cryotherapy, also known as “cold therapy” is a growing wellness trend and The Shot Shop is so excited to be one of the only med spas in the area to offer this unique treatment. Here’s all you need to know about cryo:
What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy treatment is a quick and easy way to revitalize your body by exposing it to extremely cold temperatures.
Your cryotherapy treatment takes place in a specially designed cryo tank that you’ll stand in for the entire session. During the treatment, you’ll stand in the tank for two to five minutes as the temperature drops between negative 200–300°F. Although the tank is enclosed, it does feature an opening at the top so that your head is exposed at all times. We also provide you with a robe, mittens to protect your hands, special socks and shoes. It is a very quick and easy service with no downtime.
Why You Want a Cryotherapy Treatment?
Cryotherapy has a lot of great health benefits that you can get in just one session, but the more you use it, the more effective it is. Just one visit in the tank will help to revive and recharge your muscles. Some of the other benefits of cryotherapy include:
- Reduces Inflammation/Pain
- Reduces Arthritis Pain
- Helps treat nerve injuries
- Treats mood disorders
- Reduces Migraine Symptoms
- Burns calories
Who is Cryotherapy For?
Cryotherapy is great for any adult, especially high performance athletes, cross-fitters, runners or those with chronic pain or arthritis. At The Shot Shop, we’ll create a custom treatment plan for you that best meets your goals.
