Cryotherapy, also known as cold therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses extremely low temperatures to promote various health and wellness benefits. It involves exposing the body to cold air (typically between -130°F to -184°F) for a short period of time, usually 2 to 3 minutes.
At Argyle Cryo, we offer two types of cryotherapy: Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) and Localized Cryotherapy. WBC involves stepping into a cryo chamber that exposes the entire body to cold temperatures. Localized Cryotherapy, on the other hand, targets specific areas of the body using a handheld device to deliver a concentrated stream of cold air.
A typical Whole Body Cryotherapy session lasts between 2 to 3 minutes, while a Localized Cryotherapy session varies depending on the targeted area, usually between 5 to 10 minutes.
During a Whole Body Cryotherapy session, clients are provided with gloves, socks, and slippers to protect their extremities from the extreme cold. It's recommended to wear minimal clothing, such as athletic shorts or a sports bra, to maximize skin exposure to the cold air. For Localized Cryotherapy, the targeted area should be clean and free of any lotions or oils.
Cryotherapy is considered safe when administered by trained professionals and under proper guidelines. However, people with certain medical conditions or those who are pregnant should consult with their healthcare provider before undergoing cryotherapy.
