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.

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.Read More
