Discover Why Cryotherapy Is All the Rage

Exposing yourself to freezing temperatures might sound crazy. But it can be beneficial to your health. Cryotherapy can help reduce pain, combat autoimmune diseases, and improve your mood.

Do we have your interest? Why not try it?

At French Med Spa & ºCryothérapie, we can help your body heal itself, with cryotherapy. All you have to do is step into an open-chamber filled with cool air. The temperature is usually around -272° F (that’s twice as cold as dry ice) for about three minutes. You might be a little uncomfortable during the treatment. But after you're done, you'll understand the obsession with this wellness trend.

How cryotherapy works

Cryotherapy exposes your body to extremely cold temperatures. This causes your blood to move away from your hands, feet, arms, and legs. And move towards your center, to protect your internal organs. In response to this change, your kidneys and lymphatic system get rid of harmful toxins. As your body warms up after the therapy, your blood recirculates and delivers nutrients and oxygen.

During cryotherapy, your body also reduces endorphins to boost your mood. Keep in mind, cryotherapy isn't a one-time thing. You need regular treatments to receive the benefits. Two to three sessions per week will help you see results. Especially if you suffer from chronic pain.

Alleviates pain

Cryotherapy can help reduce muscle pain and ease stiffness associated with arthritis. If you have a painful injury, it can also help speed up your recovery.

Helps weight loss

Cryotherapy, in itself, doesn't cause weight loss. But, it can help. Cold temperatures force your body to work hard to stay warm. Which burns calories. The more sessions you have, the more calories you'll burn. This repetition can help boost your metabolism.

Boosts mood

Your body releases endorphins following a cryotherapy session, which can boost your mood. Cryotherapy can also help any mood disorders caused by inflammation. Especially if you have anxiety or depression. While cryotherapy won’t cure your condition, it can help reduce the severity of symptoms.

Treats chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation can cause several health problems. Cryotherapy reduces inflammation. Which eases the discomfort, pain, and inconvenience of certain conditions. Like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, lyme disease, and fibromyalgia.

Improves skin

Cryotherapy can also boost circulation in your skin. Which can give you a more radiant appearance. It can also help reduce symptoms of psoriasis and eczema.


Cryotherapy is generally safe. If you're pregnant or have high blood pressure, you should avoid cryotherapy. It's also important you talk to your doctor beforehand.

Our team at French Med Spa & ºCryothérapie is ready to help improve your health. Whether you want to reduce pain or boost your metabolism. Cryotherapy can help you chill (pun intended).
