What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy involves exposing the body to sub-zero temperatures, which promotes the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response. Cryotherapy also triggers the body to release endorphins, reduce pain and promote overall health. Cryotherapy is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative therapy. The session is painless, and refreshing to many. Clients report the experience is invigorating and improves a variety of conditions such as psychological stress, insomnia, muscle and joint pain, and various skin conditions.
Coastal Cryo features an enclosed Whole Body Impact Cryosauna, where our clients are briefly exposed to cold nitrogen gas that ranges between -130F (L1), -166F (L2), and -184F (L3). The standard three minute session lowers the body’s skin surface temperature by 20-40 degrees. The body then triggers the fight-or-flight response and sends the blood to the vital organs. This stimulates the body to produce norepinephrine and release endorphins. Cryotherapy resets the body, encouraging homeostasis,and improving mirco-circulation.
Professional athletes have discovered Whole-Body Cryotherapy is a powerful therapy that decreases recovery time and increases athletic performance.

Whole Body Cryotherapy
The science of extreme cold temperatures being applied to the entire human body to stimulate the healing of your circulatory, nervous, and energy systems is a powerful therapeutic technology. Based on peer-reviewed scientific and medical research, the effect of the procedure is achieved when the body is exposed to temperatures between -184F and -238F which reduces the skins surface temperature to approximately 41F.
This happens when non-invasive, short, and extremely cold bursts of air are projected on your body. The resulting physiological reactions then prompt healing and recovery in numerous ways including beautification, sports injuries rehabilitation, and enhanced post-workout muscle repair. The controlled cold environment has also been proven to trigger an analgesic reaction in the mind by increasing endorphin response, leading to positive mood states and acting as an antidepressant and sleep disorder treatment.
A cryotherapy session only takes three minutes and begins by a patient entering the Cryo Chamber where the sub-zero temperature air is released. You will notice immediate improvements in your skins appearance and increased energy immediately after the first treatment. For longer lasting results, a minimum of 10 sessions are generally recommended.
Through the use of cold temperatures applied with a massage wand, collagen procution is encouraged to fill in cellulite. No fat loss will be seen from Cryo Toning, but the treatment will significantly improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. We will focus on one area per session, but sessions can be performed daily. The device will drop to 5ºF which causes local metabolism and micro-circulation to improve in the area we are focusing on. With both these components improving, collagen production will be stimulated, filling in cellulite and improving the look and feel of the skin.
This treatment is designed for the recovery or sports recovery for given parts of the body. This treament is designed to help release tense muscles and speed up recovery of injured muscles and joints. This is prefert for athletes, body builders, runners that battle with sore, torn, deep tissue related issues. Great for relieving pain, injuries, sprains and inflamation.
Celluma Light Therapy
Have you heard of the terms ‘biophotonic’ or ‘low-level light therapy?’ Both terms synonymously are used to describe the delivery of light energy to treat a variety of medical conditions. So what is low-level light therapy? It is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Low-level light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LED) devices or cold lasers, and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and can be used on all skin types.
Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, the technology is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, anti-aging, and pain.
The CRYO Penguin is what we use for Localized Cryotherapy treatments. This cutting edge technology allows us to focus on specific points of the body and treats localized tissue damage, induces cell rejuvenation, improves skin tone, and reduces the effects of ageing. Weight-loss, cellulite reduction and skin collagen boosting are just a few of the other healthcare benefits offered by cryogenically based beauty treatments.
