A new health revolution has arrived in Cairns, and it’s about to help you feel more revived, invigorated and healthier than you have felt in a long time.
Cryotherapy, which originated in Japan, has been taking Europe and the United States by storm and Cryo Australia, which opened in Brisbane in 2016, has brought these non-invasive, hyper-cooling treatments to Cairns.
Cryotherapy is a process of using cold temperatures for weight loss, improving recovery up to eight times faster from injuries, decreasing pain, slowing cell aging and enhancing overall health, to name just some of its amazing benefits.
“It really is cutting-edge technology, said Cryo Australia’s General Manager Nathan Canilho. “Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen vapours safely to help people through a myriad of different treatments, and has been delivering outstanding results.”
Cryo Australia uses its state-of-the-art Cryosauna to cool customers’ body temperatures for a maximum of three minutes. The Cryo X sauna is the coldest of it’s kind in the world going down to a temperature of -196 degrees.
The body’s natural reaction to the cold sends the blood to the vital organs where it is then nourished, once exiting the sauna the body then increases blood flow to the skin, which delivers oxygen, enzymes and nutrients throughout the body and in the process allows clients to burn up to 800 calories. The result is inflammation is reduced, muscular endurance is enhanced and energy levels are highly boosted.
“Yes, it’s very cold, but is absolutely invigorating,” Nathan said. “Unlike in an ice bath, water is not touching your skin so your body stays completely dry. After the three minutes when you come out of the Cryosauna you feel incredibly invigorated and the results people get are just amazing.”
Cryo Australia are also the research and development partners with the Brisbane Broncos, who are using a portable cryo chamber with the results being analysed by the University of Queensland to study the effects of the treatment on the athletes, including game performance and recovery from injury.
Cryotherapy is also excellent for anti-aging facial, neck and hand treatments. Trained staff use Localised Cryotherapy to reduce any inflammation and puffiness, while also decreasing the size of customer’s pores. As the temperature decreases, the body responds by producing more collagen. From this reaction, fine lines and wrinkles begin to disappear.
Another amazing service Cryo Australia provide is the Cryo Sculpting Fat Reduction treatment which uses cool temperature technology to spot reduce fat in stubborn areas such as love handles, stomach, back and thighs. The best thing is that it is extremely affordable compared to any other competitor on the market
Peter Daley opened the Cairns clinic in late August after experiencing first hand the results of Cryotherapy in Brisbane.
“I suffered from a bad back as well as tennis elbow, and the results after Cryotherapy were quite amazing,” he said. “I’m pain free now. I know the benefits of Cryotherapy, and I’m passionate about sharing them with others.”
Peter said Cryotherpay is also excellent for weight loss, inflammation, skin rejuvenation and treating acne, psoriasis and eczema and rheumatoid arthritis.
Another ground-breaking health treatment offered by Cryo Australia is through its IV iRefresh vitamin lounge, a modern hydration and nutritional therapy through IV infusions.
“The IV iRefresh therapy is fantastic,” Peter said. “It’s great for rehydration, boosting your immune system, jet lag, detoxifying the body, hangovers and increasing strength and energy levels.”
Cryo Australia offers eight different IV options, all packed with pure vitamins and essential minerals.
“The IV therapy really exploded in Brisbane,” Peter said. “Customers see the effects immediately, especially those who are feeling sick and run down.”
Cairns is the second clinic in the Cryo Australia group with other clinics opening in the coming months in Sydney and Brisbane with plans to expand into all States and major cities.
“Cryotherapy and IV therapy are game changers,” Peter said. “They’re really affordable and the most important thing is that they really do work.”
