What is Cryotherapy?

Whole body cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in 1978. A Cryosauna uses gas in the form nitrogen to lower the skin surface temperature by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of two-three minutes (clients are not in direct contact with the gas). The skins exposure to the extreme temperatures triggers the release of anti-inflammatory molecules, natural pain relievers, tissue repair, and boost immune system function.  Cryo Life Iowa is proud to bring this technology to West Des Moines, Iowa.

Health & Wellness

Whole Body Cryotherapy is a safe and natural modality where individuals have experienced a decrease in inflammation, increase cellular survival, reduced pain and simply feel their overall health improved. During a cryotherapy session, blood rushes to the body's core as a counter effect to the skin’s surface reaching freezing temperature. In turn, the natural effect increases oxygenation and nutrients with the blood which can flush toxins, reduce inflammation, and accelerate the body’s natural recovery.

Sports & Recovery

Cryotherapy is used for athletic recovery by pro-athletes, weekend warriors, and competitors of all levels as an effective technique to alleviate inflammation after strenuous exercise and training. Cryotherapy speeds recovery by triggering the natural anti-inflammatory effect of cold on muscles to elevate the body's ability to recover and reduce post-workout fatigue. Sports performance is also improved when cryotherapy is performed before competing.

What to Expect

Prior to Entering the TITAN™ CryoCabin, be completely DRY. Once in the CryoCabin you will disrobe and wear DRY socks/shoes, gloves, and undergarments. Stand in the TITAN™ CryoCabin for up to 3 minutes while the body is enveloped by hyper-cooled air at -220ºF (-140ºC). The cryo-technician will elevate the electronic lift so that your shoulders are even with the top of the unit. During this session the cold air penetrates just 0.5mm into the skin, causing the skin’s surface to cool to 30ºF. The timer goes off and automatically lowers the lift to allow you to exit.

Cryochambers have been used for the past 30+ years without any severe adverse reaction ever recorded. Utilizing the TitanCryo unit creates a ‘dry’ cold that is self circulating making as comfortable as cryotherapy can be and each successive session feels more comfortable. Depending on the condition of treatment, you should initially take 5 – 10 treatments in close succession (separated by 1-2 days — e.g. 3x/week) to maximize your results. During each session the body releases norepinephrine and endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days. Our non-invasive, non-medical therapy is designed to help our clients achieve the healthy and pain-free life they deserve.
