Cryotherapy is less complicated than you think. Cryo comes from the Greek word meaning icy cold, which is why many refer to cryotherapy as “cold therapy.” During cryotherapy, the body is briefly exposed to extremely low temperatures, causing the body to direct blood flow away from your extremities and to your organs. After your treatment, your body then re-circulates your blood. This helps you recover faster, treats aches and pains, and can burn up to 800 calories per session!
