Let’s talk about cryo for a minute. It’s this great amazing “cool” therapy, right?

Perhaps you tried a treatment and didn’t notice a thing, and thought “darn. I really wanted this to work!”

Well, you’ve missed something. A VERY important piece of information. Cryotherapy is a therapy. That’s right. Cryo-THERAPY. Now, have you ever heard of any therapy that only took one day?

Example: “Bob started his physical therapy yesterday to recover from his back surgery. That one day of therapy worked wonders for him and he’s ready to get back to playing football again!”

Of course that’s just crazy talk. ;) No therapy takes just one day. It’s a series of consecutive treatments that, with accumulation, create positive and lasting results within the body. 

With whole-body cryotherapy, it’s best to receive 10 treatments within your first 30 days, but if you can do even more, that’s even better! It’s all about accumulation, building one treatment upon the other. Sure, you might get a lot out of one session, but that one session tends to wear off pretty quickly. We know if you’re using cryotherapy correctly, you’ll be amazed at how well your body responds to it! 

Once you’ve accumulated multiple treatments, you won’t have to come in as often. (Some clients still do because they enjoy the mood boost and energy boost!)

Please feel free to pass this information along. Many people can benefit from whole-body cryotherapy, but not if they don’t understand that it is, in fact, a therapy.

Cryotherapy and Autoimmune disorders

Check out Whitney's testimonial!

Guilty. As a working mom of two small children, I am an expert at putting my needs last. Seriously, I can find every excuse in the book. So, when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder a couple years ago that zapped all of my remaining energy, there was literally no motivation to actively put my needs first. I was barely making it through the constant demands of my day. 

By chance, I happened upon an article about the benefits of cryotherapy. I admit, I was skeptical. As someone with limited time, even more limited energy, and a strong dislike for bitter cold temperatures, I was pretty sure that this was NOT an option for me. However, my widespread inflammation was so debilitating that I was willing to try anything once. Just once, I told myself--certain that it wouldn't make me feel better. Well, I was wrong.

After the first session, I left feeling AMAZING. My mood was elevated, I slept much better, and, the next morning, I was able to easily slide on my wedding ring without the usual swelling and discomfort. What?!? Just one session radically changed my mind!! And, after committing to regular sessions, I found that these benefits not only persisted, but they became more profound. I haven't felt this good in over 2 years. My swelling, internal inflammation, and fatigue are all drastically improved and are even completely alleviated on most days. 

There is absolutely no reason to not try this just once (hello, Happy Hour Wednesday deals!!!!). The staff is incredible, professional, and knowledgeable. And, I promise you, the icy cold temperatures are unbelievably worth it!!

Whole-body Cryotherapy & Radiation Treatments - Ken's Testimonial

I was diagnosed with lymphoma sarcoma in February 2017. A very close friend of mine, Erin Kistner, insisted that I give cryo a try as it would help me during my radiation treatments. I was still not truly convinced, but Erin was determined and went as far as to pay unlimited treatment for two months.

I had 28 sessions of radiation. I went 5 days a week each afternoon, M-F. I also went to Cryo-X, 5 days a week in the morning, M-F. My radiologist prescribed a cream that I was to use three times a day for the duration of the radiation treatment. The cream was to help with keeping my skin from burning & blistering from the intense radiation that was isolated to the area of the tumor. I only used the cream a half a dozen times during treatment and only applied it two times a day on those occasions. I believe cryo kept my skin from damaging from the radiation!

I was scheduled to have surgery after the radiation treatment, but was told there was a cooling off period of 4 weeks to allow for the skin to heal, but when the surgeon examined my skin, he was amazed, no skin damage! Surgery was scheduled the day after my last radiation treatment.

I firmly believe that cryo helped in several areas with my treatment and now recovery period.

  • More energy, was told my radiation treatment would make me exhausted, never happened. All my Dr.'s were amazed at how much energy I had through all the treatments.
  • Skin undamaged, did not have to wait 4 weeks for surgery, reduced my risk of cancer spreading, tumor removed sooner, radiologist and surgeon were amazed how well my skin looked after treatment.
  •  Maintained a healthy weight during treatment, no severe weight loss
  • Quicker recovery from my multiple surgeries 
  •  Cancer was isolated to the one tumor, no other tumors found
 I want to thank the entire staff at the Grapevine location. They are friendly, genuine, and truly care about the people they treat. highly recommend to all.

Lastly, to Erin, who without her recommendation I would've never tried cryo - THANK YOU!

Treat Your Skin with Whole-body Cryotherapy

During your whole-body cryotherapy session, blood is pulled away to the core, picking up oxygen and nutrients along the way. Upon exiting the cryosauna, the enriched blood is rushed back throughout the body, aiding in toxin removal that leaves the skin glowing and refreshed. 

Whole-body cryotherapy has been known to help with skin issues such as: acne, eczema, stretch marks, psoriasis, scarring and so much more. 

While it is recommended to do at least 10 sessions in your first 30 days, clients typically see results in just 4-7 sessions, as long as those sessions are in close proximity. It's all about accumulation, so the more sessions you can accumulate in the beginning, the better. After that, the key is maintaining, so roughly one session per week can help you maintain your results. (Sometimes more, sometimes less) Maintenance varies from person to person. 

What's so great about whole-body cryotherapy in comparison to medications and creams? It's safe, natural and has no negative side effects!

What's the difference between the cold outside and the cold in the cryosauna?

You may be wondering, as you drive through snow or across icy roads to do whole-body cryotherapy, "Why am I still doing this?" Can't I just stand outside?"
Valid question.

The cold outside is not nearly as beneficial for you as the cryosauna!

The cryosauna triggers your body's cold receptors into protecting you, which sends your body into a head-to-toe reboot! The cold outside simply does not.

Whole-body cryotherapy involves lowering your skin surface temperature to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, by enveloping the body in temperatures at -166 Fahrenheit or colder. It is impossible to achieve this being outside!

The cold outside, while being slightly beneficial to boosting your immune system, cannot even compare to the cryosauna! The cryosauna not only gives your immune system a huge boost, but it also helps flush toxins from the body. Blood is pulled inward, away from extremities during your treatment. Once you step out of the cryosauna, nutrient/oxygen-enriched blood is sent back into your extremities and throughout your body, as lymphatic drainage is increased. The cold outside simply cannot aid in toxin removal.

The cold outside cannot reduce inflammation on the level at which whole-body cryotherapy can. Blood may be slightly pulled away from your fingertips if you're outside long enough, but during a whole-body cryotherapy treatment, blood is not just pulled away from the fingertips. It's pulled from the legs and arms and into the core, as vasoconstriction occurs, meaning vessels are constricted as blood is held in the core!

 The cold outside has little to no benefit on inflammation and pain! In fact, the cold outside, especially when coupled with changes in pressure, can cause joint pain flare-ups. The cryosauna was developed specifically to treat join pain!

Calorie burning; You might burn 5-10 calories while shivering outside, but the cryosauna triggers a full-out metabolic response in which you'll burn anywhere from 400-800 calories! That's basically an hour and a half's worth of cardio, all from one 3-minute session!

There are so many reasons as to why whole-body cryotherapy is so much better than just standing outside. The reasons listed above are barely skimming the surface, but you catch our drift...The cold outside and the cryosauna are simply incomparable!
