Benefits of Cryotherapy
From acute pain to weight loss there are a number of benefits to using Cryotherapy even once. Some individuals decide to come once a week, while some professional athletes may come twice a day. As treatments are generally less than 5 minutes of exposure our patients rarely need to wait long for therapies. Other individuals will choose to come once a day for two weeks and then once a month.
