Targeted Cryotherapy

Safely treat injuries, improve circulation, and provide targeted pain relief using super-chilled air

What is Targeted Cryotherapy?

In this therapy, a cryotherapy machine is used to direct a stream of super-cooled air to a specific painful area of your body. The chilling constricts the blood vessels in the inflamed area.

How Targeted Cryotherapy Works

Step 1:

A targeted cryotherapy session involves exposing a small area of your body to extremely cold air using a handheld device while you lie on a treatment table.

Step 2:

The cold temperatures cause the blood vessels in the area to constrict temporarily, which can reduce inflammation and pain. Cryotherapy can also improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of bruising.

Step 3:

After the area is chilled for about 3 minutes, you start to move it gently as the blood vessels start to dilate and your pain reduces.

Step 4:

Most people find that localized cryotherapy is a painless and tolerable experience. Some people may experience a brief sensation of coldness or discomfort, but this typically subsides within a few minutes.

Targeted Cryotherapy Benefits

Restoring circulation and mobility to targeted areas of the body through localized cryotherapy can:

Reduce Inflammation

The freezing temperatures constrict blood vessels, which reduces swelling. For those suffering from conditions like arthritis or tendinitis, localized cryotherapy can bring welcome relief. The treatments also reduce muscle spasms and improve your range of motion.

Improve Recovery Time from Injury or Surgery

After a localized cryotherapy treatment, the targeted area receives a rush of fresh blood, filled with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. Since your body’s in an elevated healing mode, you recover more quickly from surgery and injuries.

Enhance Skin Health

The cold air increases blood flow and circulation, which can improve skin tone and texture, minimizing the look of lines and wrinkles. Localized cryotherapy can provide relief from the pain and itching of eczema or psoriasis.

Restoring circulation and mobility to targeted areas of the body through localized cryotherapy can:


Although both whole body cryotherapy and localized cryotherapy are similar, they do have a few key distinctions. While targeted cryotherapy is more effective at reducing pain in a specific location, whole body cryotherapy is better for creating a general wellness response throughout the entire body.

The sessions are 3 minutes long and focus on one painful area of the body.
