Cryotherapy Q & A

What is cryotherapy?

Traditionally, ice baths were used to treat muscle soreness and chronic pain. Today’s cryotherapy is a modern take on this process. It involves exposing your body to ultra-low temperatures in three-minute sessions. Temperatures can range between -200°F and -256 °F, and it is beneficial for your health in a variety of ways.

You can use cryotherapy for muscle recovery and as a holistic strategy for pain management. Cryotherapy also offers benefits to:

  • Enhance mood
  • Boost immunity
  • Reduce stress
  • Improve sleep quality

The team at Capital Cryo offers whole body cryotherapy at each of their locations to give you access to the therapeutic benefits already recognized by top athletes and celebrities.


What conditions can cryotherapy treat?

Whole-body cryotherapy is a highly effective way to improve both your physical and mental health. You can benefit from this type of therapy as a preventive measure to keep your body functioning optimally.

Cryotherapy is also a beneficial pain management resource. The ultra-low temperatures can ease chronic pain associated with:

  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Migraines
  • Inflammatory disease

If you have mental health issues, like depression or anxiety, cryotherapy can be useful for reducing the severity of your symptoms.

While cryotherapy isn’t a solution to being overweight or obese, exposure to the cold temperatures can increase your metabolism and make it easier to shed unwanted pounds.


What can I expect during a cryotherapy treatment?

The team at Capital Cryo offers three types of cryotherapy: whole body, cryofacial, and local cryotherapy to address your unique needs.

For whole body cryotherapy, you can expect to sit in the therapy booth for three to five minutes. Your provider will adjust the temperature based on your goals.

When you receive a cryofacial, your provider applies cold therapy only to your face using a special wand. They can also apply the wand to local areas of your body where you experience inflammation and pain.

With each cryotherapy session, your body becomes more tolerant of the cold temperatures and your results continue to improve. The Capital Cryo team prioritizes your comfort and safety during each session to optimize your experience and the health benefits of your treatment.
