Local Cryotherapy is an impulse cryostimulation to the surface to applying cryogenic temperatures of 140 C for a short time 3-5 min.

The extreme cold creates a flushing effect, which pushes blood away from the targeted area. This gives the area a deep, long lasting cold sensation. Extreme cold activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. As a result, the body increases its metabolic rate in order to produce more heat and protects the treated part of the body. It increases circulation by 4 times, oxygenates the blood and flushes out the toxins, which decreases inflammation.
