Localized Cryotherapy, targeted to a specific muscle area or spasm can be applied via a localized device for 2-3 minutes depending on the area. Localized cold air treatments reach -25° to -40° F, and drop skin temperature rapidly without discomfort as our technicians are trained to measure skin temperature, watch the treated area for coloration changes, and interact with the customer to ensure comfort during treatments. This has been demonstrated to produce beneficial results compared to fifteen-to-twenty minute icing as this treatment flushes the tissue of fluid and waste rapidly (reducing inflammation and improving range of motion), causing a massive return of regenerative blood supply as the rewarming occurs quickly after application.
Unlike the whole-body chamber which is more systemic, our localized cryotherapy devices deliver a targeted cooling to specific areas of the body undergoing application. An example of localized treatment would occur with a low back, neck, hamstring, ankle, knee, wrist, or elbow pain. We recommend Whole Body Chamber (systemic) followed by localized cold air (targeted) after a short rewarming period for the best results.
