The leading cryotherapy spa in Chicago.
Experience the Benefits of Cryogenic Freeze Therapy in River North, Chicago
Our Whole Body Cryotherapy chamber provides natural healing and wellness, supporting our philosophy of total body-care. From professional athletes to the wellness enthusiasts, cryotherapy users in Chicago have experienced a multitude of benefits from our freeze sessions. Our Cryotherapy treatments extend beyond the full-body chamber. For clients who want to target a specific area of pain, inflammation, or cellulite, we suggest localized cryotherapy. Additionally, our Chicago Spa offers skincare devotees a new regiment for brighter and tighter skin through our Cryo-Facials.
In just 2 to 3 minutes, whole body cryotherapy releases anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins to jumpstart your body’s natural ability to burn calories, accelerate muscle recovery, reduce pain and inflammation, and enhance the health and glow of your skin.
Cryogenic Freezing Therapy is the process of using liquid nitrogen to hyper cool the body for 3 minutes in freezing cold temperatures. Whole body Cryotherapy chambers are cold and dry and are similar to how athletes use ice baths or how you would ice a sprained ankle.
Literally meaning ‘cold therapy,’ cryotherapy stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities through exposure to subzero temperatures. By exposing the skin to extreme cold, the brain and body react in uniquely beneficial ways that can boost metabolism by up to 300% and burn up to 500-800 calories.
Cryotherapy releases anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins, helping to reduce inflammation and pain.
For clients who want to target a specific area of pain, inflammation, or cellulite, we offer localized cryotherapy as well as cryo-facials which tone and tighten your skin. Both of these therapies entail spraying the vaporized liquid nitrogen onto the area of focus.
For Whole Body Cryotherapy, the first Freeze Therapy session lasts usually 60 to 90 seconds to help you get acclimated with the cold. After that, we will work with you to determine the duration from 2 to 3 minutes for each session. You may end the session at any time. For Localized and Facial Cryotherapy, each session lasts up to 10 minutes.
Cooling of muscles relieves pain and promotes recovery
Like an ice bath, cryotherapy relieves and reduces pain as the cold causes blood vessels to constrict.
Cryotherapy is known to burn hundreds of calories in a matter of minutes and can speed up your weight loss journey.
The extreme cold causes the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins which are known to affect moods.
Cryotherapy is great for skin health including reducing wrinkles.
Exposing your body to the cold causes the release of norepinephrine which can affect your sleep cycles.
