Cryotherapy – a brief introduction
In European countries, Cryotherapy is a popular method of faster pain relief and achieving overall wellness. But, cryotherapy and its healing properties have gain popularity in the US only recently. It is considered to be a fast, invasive non-medical approach to treat pain and improve health. The healing properties of cold temperatures are used in this approach and it is an absolutely painless method to attain wellness. Liquid nitrogen is used in a temperature as low as -110C to -190C which is applied to the top layer of the skin. The blood vessels in that area constrict due to the low temperature and blood from other parts of the body flows in that direction which helps the nutrients in the blood get absorbed in the affected area of pain. This soothes the pain and gives an instant relief. Athletes and sportsperson vouch for cryotherapy as an excellent option for fast pain relief without any adverse effects on the body. In addition to that, it has other advantages too. Cryotherapy helps in increasing the metabolism, reduces cellulite, burns calories, increases stamina, improves skin conditions etc. At Advanced Cryo NYC, there are various services available based on the individual requirements of the clients.

Popular cryo services at a glance:
In brief, below given are the few popular services the clinic offers:
- Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC): WBC is recommended to people suffering from a widespread pain and inflammation. The condition can result from sports injuries, extreme physical labor, arthritis or chronic pains due to any other health condition. In the WBC process, the patient is placed inside a Cryosauna chamber where a cold stream of liquid nitrogen is released in extremely low temperatures. The process is not at all uncomfortable as it only chills the top layer of the skin rapidly while the core body temperature varies slightly. The cold stream lasts for a few minutes and the patient feels energized instantly. Most people claim that they are relieved from pain after a single session, but experts recommend multiple cryo sessions within a short period of time to heal the pain completely. However, WBC is not recommended for people suffering from serious health conditions like heart diseases, hypertension, kidney and liver problems etc. Pregnant women are also not allowed to go for WBC to avoid any health risks.

- Local Application Cryo: This cryo technique is most useful for people suffering from localized pain or injuries in the areas like knees, elbow, shoulders, upper back, lower back or hip. Unlike Cryosauna, a wand like tool is used in this process to emit the liquid nitrogen in freezing temperatures to heal the pain instantly.
- Cryo Facial: Among many health benefits that cryotherapy has, a very important one is the improved skin quality it provides. Cryofacials can remove fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, blemishes and other imperfections from your skin to make it look smoother and younger.
