What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is the process of using extremely cold temperatures on the surface of your body to induce, then utilise your body’s physiological responses to the cold.

Using sub-zero temperatures our Cryotherapy treatments enhance the body’s natural healing processes for proven results, aiding muscle recovery, weight loss and skin rejuvenation. The next generation of ‘ice bath’ therapy, the science behind Cryotherapy has been around for hundreds of years – but the advanced technology provided by Perth Cryotherapy Centre, has revolutionised the process.

Cryotherapy is proving to be even more effective than ice baths, taking the skin temperature lower than is achievable with ice, which allows for a more effective response from your body and increases your speed of recovery. In addition to this, during an ice bath the cold penetrates deeper into your skin than just the surface layer, which can be damaging. In the Cryosauna the skin is not deeply penetrated and the colder surface temperature has a better physiological response.


Inside the CryoSauna machine the temperatures will range from -80C to -140C and any session can last up to 120 or 180 seconds long. Whilst that sounds cold, it targets your extremities without reaching your core, so you never feel ‘frozen’. From a physiological view, when your suface temperature is lowered so severely, your body reacts to the cold, going into shock and pushing blood from your extremities back to your core to keep your vital organs going.

At your core your blood is then enriched with oxygen and nutrients, so when you come out of the cold and your body is attempting to heat itself up again, the oxygen rich blood is pushed back out to your extremities. This promotes regeneration, initiating cell renewal and removal of damaged and dead skin cells, removes toxins and rejuvenates cellular production.
