What is Cryotherapy?
Also known as cold therapy, cryotherapy uses very low temperatures to promote pain relief and wellness.
Think of cryotherapy as the modern equivalent of an "ice bath" – with more benefits, less discomfort, and no hassle! Our trained cryotherapy technicians use high-tech equipment to produce extremely low temperatures using liquid nitrogen vapor.
Treatments take just 2-3 minutes!
"I come here exclusively for the cryotherapy and absolutely love it! As an athlete and weightlifter it has been a tremendous help to soothe sore muscles and the aches and pains I get as I get older."

Whole Body Cryotherapy
Available at our Lake Oswego and Oregon City locations, whole body cryotherapy treatments expos your WHOLE BODY to cold temperatures, magnifying the benefits of cryo.
Our cryotherapy booths reach temperatures as low as -120 Celsius (-184ºF). Your whole body cryotherapy treatment is both fast and effective.
How does Cryotherapy work?
Extremely cold temperatures stimulate receptors in your body, prompting your brain to send messages that result in vasoconstriction. Blood rushes from the extremities to the core of the body where it oxygenates and enriches the body with nutrients.
After your cryo treatment ends, blood is pumped vigorously (vasodilation) around the body, resulting in the rush of energy our clients love.
Additionally, depending on your diet and fitness level, you’ll burn up to 500-800 calories in the hours after your treatment.
On average our clients do cryotherapy treatments 2-4 times every week. The more often you expose your body to this treatment the better results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Scientific Cryotherapy Research
Is Cryotherapy Safe?
Yes! Your body is safely cooled by nitrogen vapor surrounding your body. All treatments are conducted and monitored by an experienced and trained cryo technician. Be aware cryotherapy is not recommended for those with heart conditions and other medical issues. Before your first treatment, our staff will review a complete list of contraindications.
How Long Does Cryo Take?
At most, our cryotherapy treatments last for 3 minutes. Because of the intense cold therapy, many of our clients start out with a shorter treatment and work up to the full 3 minutes over time.
When Will I Start to See Results?
You’ll likely feel a powerful rush of endorphins (the body’s mood elevator) as soon as your cryo treatment finishes. You may also feel immediate:
These effects may last for hours or even days.
Many clients also notice improved sleep in the days following their treatment. Improvements in skin texture and reduction in cellulite and weight loss will take longer and may require a series of treatments for maximum results.
Is One Treatment Enough?
Every whole body cryotherapy session is beneficial and you’ll likely experience immediate positive results. However, research has shown maximum benefits of cryotherapy are seen over a period of 2-3 weeks, with 3-4 sessions per week.
