What is Local Cryotherapy?
Local cryotherapy is used to target a precise area of the body and specific areas of your skin – making it significantly different from whole body cryotherapy.
Equally advantageous, the localized treatment utilizes a powerful yet small handheld device. This is critical in treating affected areas and acute pain issues with quick results to reduce inflammation caused from chronic or acute injuries, autoimmune and arthritis.
The duration of each session is 5-10 mins, with temperatures as low as -280℉. Although local cryotherapy is valuable on its own, many of our Cryomend clients opt to combine this formidable experience with whole body cryotherapy.

Local Cryotherapy can be more beneficial than Whole Body Cryotherapy if the Client is dealing with a specific injury, area of concern or if they are unable to do Whole Body Cryotherapy due to specific contraindications. This area is commonly seen in individuals that have sustained an injury, a strain, pulled muscle or recovering from surgery. Combining Whole Body Cryotherapy with Local Cryotherapy can be very beneficial for those suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions.
