What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy, or “cold therapy,” was developed in Japan in 1978 and migrated to Europe in the early 1980’s. It utilizes extreme cold to activate the central nervous system, which can potentially optimize the body’s natural healing ability. The brief application of an extreme drop in temperature causes a narrowing of the blood vessels and a subsequent decrease in circulation. When the cold stimulus is removed, a potential massive dilation of the blood vessels occurs and may last for 2-3 hours.
During this re-warming phase, a dramatic increase in blood flow to the muscles occurs causing a significant increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrient rich blood to all areas of the body. Metabolic waste removal is also potentially enhanced. The result of this massive shunting of blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout the body is a significant alteration in the hormones and cellular proteins that fight inflammation. This has the potential to result in a decrease in chronic and acute inflammation, increased cell regeneration, improved athletic performance, and elevated energy levels.

I had a great experience visiting Northwest Cryotherapy. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Brianna assisted me with a localized treatment, and she did a fantastic job. I had pulled a muscle in my lower back, and after the treatment I didnt feel the discomfort anymore. Today I went back for a second treatment and I plan to continue regular visits.Maggie S., Groupon
