What is Class Localized Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is the innovative treatment of exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures reaching down to -260°F to stimulate vascular flow, which increases oxygen and nutrient supply to areas of the body that need revitalizing. Cryotherapy can also boost blood circulation, which results in a higher metabolic and caloric burn rate. Additionally, Cryotherapy can also be used for beauty benefits such as tightening the skin and reducing cellulite.
Cryotherapy is an excellent alternative for musculoskeletal conditions and degenerative joint diseases, but it’s gaining popularity for its weight loss and skincare benefits. At Velocity Performance and Sports Rehab in Oceanport NJ, we offer localized cryotherapy to address post-injury recovery, musculoskeletal health, and skincare/anti-aging needs and help you in your weight-loss journey.
How does Class Localized Cryotherapy Work?
Localized Cryotherapy is the application of cryogenically cooled air to specific parts of the body. A localized cryotherapy session uses a small handheld device to apply the nitrogen gas to a specific target area such as the neck, elbow, knee, ankle, etc. The session only takes minutes to complete and leaves you with benefits that far exceed what traditional icing can provide.
During a 2-3 minute session at -260°F, the blood circulation is stimulated and is forced toward the core, where the body’s natural filtration system works to remove toxins and inflammatory properties from the blood.
Over the next 48 hours, the process of restoration occurs and the body returns to an improved state with reduced tissue damage, decreased inflammation, and relieving pain by increasing cellular survival and strengthening the immune system as well as increased energy levels.
Localized Cryotherapy Benefits
The benefits of localized cryotherapy include reduced inflammation, faster recovery, and muscle and tissue repair. Cryotherapy increases collagen production, which in return tightens the skin, and reduces acne and pimples, leaving the skin with a more youthful glow. This type of therapy can also have a significant impact on your mental health; Cryotherapy stimulates the release of increased levels of endorphins which can elevate mood and reduce stress and strengthen the immune system.

No prescription for physical therapy? No problem.
The ability to visit a physical therapist without a prescription or referral is called Direct Access.
Direct Access allows you to go directly to a physical therapist without the need for a physician prescription or referral. Now, all fifty states, and the District of Columbia have made a ruling enabling patients “direct access” to physical therapy services and programs.
