A cryotherapy treatment involves exposing the entire body to sub-zero temperatures. The icy temps stimulate blood circulation, triggering many health benefits ranging from accelerated healing to anti-ageing, weight loss and stress relief.
Metabolic and caloric burn rates are increased, inflammation and pain are reduced, and endorphin levels are boosted - helping to elevate mood and reduce stress. This top-to-toe treatment is perfect for anyone looking to speed up the body's natural recovery process, lose weight, manage pain or amplify their general health & wellbeing.

/ Why Cryo King?
To offer a true whole-body cryotherapy experience, we use the °CRYO ARCTIC™ chamber. Unlike many cryo chambers that only treat the neck down, the °CRYO ARCTIC™ uses heat exchange technology to create a safe, breathable atmosphere so your face is also rewarded with collagen-boosting, anti-aging and anti-inflammation results.
Because safety is important to us, the °CRYO ARCTIC™ comes from the only TGA approved cryotherapy company in Australia. Reaching temperatures of -140°C / -220°F, it is also the coldest and most effective whole body cryotherapy chamber on the market.
/ How Does Cryotherapy Work?
A Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) session lasts just three minutes, but the full cycle of internal reactions can last for days. Once inside the °CRYO ARCTIC™ chamber, cryogenically cooled air is released, exposing the body to extreme temperatures as low as -140°C. The rapid drop in temperature will lower skin temp to 4°C and push oxygen through your system.
As temperatures normalise, your blood vessels expand, boosting blood circulation and flooding the body with nutrients and minerals. This process triggers the biochemical reactions that promote recovery and improve performance resulting in a host of physical and mental benefits.

We use the °CRYO ARCTIC™ chamber from the only TGA approved cryotherapy company in Australia.
Unlike other cryotherapy chambers, our CRYO Arctic cryo-chamber only exposes you to breathable air vapour, and not to harmful nitrogen gas. The nitrogen is filtered out through the system before the air comes in contact with your body.
The CRYO Arctic also has an adjustable window so you have the option to keep your head above the cold air vapour.
Most people can use cryotherapy, however, it can be unsafe for people with certain medical conditions including:
- Anyone with unmanaged hypertension
