Wholebody Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is the ultra-cold temperatures in whole-body treatment that can cause physiological hormonal responses. This includes the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins. This can have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders.

QUICK CHILL

Cryotherapy for the whole body consists of a patient standing in a special tank; called a Cryosauna, which exposes the body to very low (sub-zero) temperatures for a duration of time (between 90 sec - 3 min). Liquid nitrogen in the tank causes a cool, but dry mist to fill the tank and lower the body's skin temperature to around 10 degrees celsius.


STIMULATING ENDORPHINS

How will I feel after a Whole Body Cryotherapy session? When the session is complete, your skin will return to its normal temperature within minutes. Immediately after you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but within minutes you will likely feel relaxed and muscular pain generally begins to subside immediately.

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.

Massage therapy can be used as a treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs work with a wide variety of patients in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.

What to expect on first massage therapy visit?

On the first visit you will complete a confidential health history as part of your assessment. Your massage therapist will assess your individual needs as well as other factors that may be contributing to your injury or condition. The RMT will develop a treatment plan with you to ensure you receive appropriate treatment. The treatment plan can be changed at any time and will be reassessed at an appropriate time. You have no obligation to undergo any part of a treatment.

Your treatment will begin once you have given your informed consent. This involves setting realistic goals for treatment, discussing possible responses to treatment, and being informed of alternative care options.
