Cryo Innovations XR Recovery Chamber

Recent innovation, research, and technology now allows for whole bodycryotherapy (WBC) in a specialized chamber (or sauna) that exposes the entire body (with exception for the head) and is the most advanced, tolerable, and time-efficient form of cryotherapy currently available. Whole body Cryotherapy(WBC) treatments are a revolutionary method of cryotherapy; exposing the body to subzero temperatures for a very short duration (less than 2-3 minutes). This will lower your skin temperature to 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit, while your core body temperature still remains around 98 degrees (its natural state).

WBC can also alleviate muscle and joint pain, sprains and strains, swelling, tendonitis, and bursitis. Many clients also report improvements in sleep quality, restfulness, anxiety, and depression. In athletes, it can accelerate recovery by minimizing post-training soreness and fatigue. It can also be used as part of a weight management program, as the average person will burn 500-800 calories the same day after a whole body cryotherapy session.

Localized Thermotherapy/Cryotherapy Station

Dense heat pads are soaked in an electric hydrocollator prior to usage, providing deep, penetrating heat to the patient. This helps reduce muscle stiffness, tension, and spasms, while increasing circulation to muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and discs. Gel packs are kept in a freezer prior to usage, and provide localized cryotherapy to the patient. This traditional therapy is great for reducing pain and inflammation in localized, targeted body parts.

Hydrobed

A combination therapy that mixes heat and massage into a single modality. The therapies enhance each other when applied together. The patient lies onto a water-filled mattress with hydrotherapy jets inside that deliver powerful streams of water that impact the body, producing a kneading massage. The beneficial heat effects are sedative, antispasmodic and analgesic (pain relieving). The penetrating hydromassage helps reduce muscle spasms, increases lymphatic and vascular circulation, and increases soft tissue mobility.

Intersegmental Table (IST)

Another combination therapy mixing vibration and spinal joint mobilization into a single modality. These therapies also enhance each other when applied together. The patient lies on a vibrating table (with the option to have no vibration) while powerful rollers mobilize the spine from top to bottom. Vibration is beneficial for mechanoreceptor stimulation and enhanced proprioception (increased postural awareness) and nociceptor inhibition (reduced pain). The powerful rollers help reduce vertebral joint restriction & immobility, increase circulation to intervertebral discs, increase joint mobility and range of motion, and improve spinal biomechanics.

Normatec Pulse Recovery System

The Normatec Pulse Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab for both athletes and patients. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, enhance blood flow, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern.

When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the recovery sleeves are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, legs, thighs, and hips. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limbs. There will then be a brief rest period followed by enhanced blood flow back down to your feet. A typical session can last from 15 – 30 minutes.

Near Infrared Light & Thermotherapy

This unique and powerful therapy utilizes tungsten bulb incandescent light to produce a full-spectrum of full body healing and detox wavelengths (600-1000nm) resulting in therapeutic-grade red and near infrared mitochondrial stimulation! The benefits include: increased collagen production (anti-aging effects and vast improvement with many skin conditions), increased metabolism, improvements in memory and cognition, accelerated tissue healing and recovery, and boosted cellular detoxification and regeneration.

There is NO UV or blue light—100% safe and effective. There is NO flicker stress or EMF stress (unlike LED and other alternative forms of light therapy). The significance of tungsten bulb incandescent full-spectrum light therapy is that you get the spectrally natural form of red and near infrared light, and the synergy of photobiomodulation (PBM) and heat detoxification. It is the closest simulation of incandescent sunlight, of all man-made light technologies currently available.
