Targeted pain relief and injury management

Local cryotherapy is a cryostimulation treatment that focuses on specific areas of the body, enhancing blood flow to injured or sore muscles and joints. The extreme cold applied to the targeted area stimulates oxygenated blood flow, reducing tension and inflammation. Following the treatment, the natural analgesic effect caused by cryostimulation reduces tension and allows the treated muscles to relax, resulting in stronger muscles and joints, increased tolerance to strenuous exercise, and boosted athletic performance.

Benefits of Local Cryotherapy

Local cryotherapy can be beneficial for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and people suffering from muscle and joint pain. It is often used in sports medicine due to the valuable benefits it provides, including:
  • Improved joint functionality
  • Treatment of muscle and ligament strains
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased resistance to fatigue
  • Relief from pain and inflammation
  • Decreased tension in muscles
  • Quicker recovery
  • Treatment of tendon injuries
  • Enhanced athletic performance

To maximise the benefits of local cryotherapy, attending regular sessions is the most effective method. Applying consistent cryostimulation to the targeted joints and muscles promotes improved circulation, leading to faster recovery and pain relief. This allows you to continue training and avoid further injury.

At The Arctic Studio, we offer local cryotherapy treatments that also improve skin conditions such as eczema, pigmentation, and broken capillaries. Our cryo facials leave your skin with a youthful glow whilst providing targeted relief for pain and inflammation.

The Benefits of Cryotherapy

Reduce Recovery Times / Inflammation

Unlike an ice pack, Cryotherapy can target more than one area of inflammation at once. Unlike ice treatment, your muscle tissues do not require down time to recover from Cryotherapy. You can start training again straight away.

Maximise Athletic Performance

With minimal recovery time, and reduced muscle soreness and inflammation, athletes are about to push the boundaries and perform to the best of their ability. Training longer, harder and with shorter recovery times means you really can maximise your athletic performance.

Pain Management

A common side effect of degenerative diseases is painful joints and inflammation. Cryotherapy is scientifically proven to help, targeting blockages in your blood causing inflammation. By reducing these blockages, and regulating muscle tone can lead to a reduction in pain.

Weight Loss

The extreme low temperatures kick-start your metabolism. Your blood is cleansed from the temperature drop, and rushes around your body to help wake up your metabolism. Cryotherpy improves your metabolism to help you continue to burn calories after your session.

Improved Mood

Cryotherapy releases endorphins, which are natural hormones that can help reduce stress and anxiety, as well as improve mood and mental clarity. The extreme cold temperatures can stimulate the production of norepinephrine, which can improve focus and cognitive function.


Stimulating skin collagen growth, which increases your skin's elasticity. This leaves you looking younger, and your skin with that elusive glow that everybody is chasing. If you want visibly healthier-looking skin, you need to give Cryotherapy a go.

Frequently asked questions about Cryotherapy

Localised Cryotherapy is a more targeted and advanced form of cold therapy compared to traditional ice packs. Localised Cryotherapy uses a handheld device to deliver a stream of cold air or liquid nitrogen to a specific area of the body. It takes around 5-10 minutes per treatment, whilst an ice pack may require 15-20 minutes of application. Localised Cryotherapy is more hygienic and controlled, providing more accurate temperature adjustments and focused treatment.

Localised Cryotherapy can provide quick relief to inflamed or injured areas, promoting faster healing and recovery. Ice packs, on the other hand, provide general cooling to an area and can lead to tissue damage and frostbite if used incorrectly.

Localised Cryotherapy is a dry treatment. While it is not necessary to shower before or after your treatment, it is important to ensure that you are completely dry if you have showered prior to the session. This allows for the most effective and safe cryotherapy experience.

Localised Cryotherapy is considered safe when administered by trained professionals. However, it’s essential to follow the guidelines and avoid overexposure to cold temperatures, which could lead to frostbite or other cold-related injuries. If you have any concerns about the safety of Localised Cryotherapy for you, talk to your practitioner or doctor. People with certain medical conditions, including Raynaud’s disease, should avoid Localised Cryotherapy.

Yes! Exercising before or after Localised Cryotherapy is perfectly fine. In fact, it can help speed up recovery and reduce inflammation when used in conjunction with physical activity. Just be sure to consult with your practitioner or trainer to determine the best timing for your specific needs and goals.

The frequency of Localised Cryotherapy sessions depends on your individual needs, goals, and how your body responds to the treatments. Some people might require daily treatments for acute injuries, whilst others may only need occasional sessions for maintenance and recovery. Consult with your practitioner to develop a treatment plan that works best for you.

Localised Cryotherapy isn’t typically painful, but it can feel very cold and may cause slight discomfort during the treatment. The sensation usually subsides shortly after the session is complete. If you experience any pain or extreme discomfort, inform your practitioner immediately.done
