Whole Body Cryotherapy in Boise
For decades, Europeans have assisted in healing their bodies with Whole Body Cryotherapy. At Active Health & Wellness, we are happy to bring you this innovative treatment, designed to support your body’s natural and unique ability to heal.
Inside the CryoSauna chamber, you are gently sprayed with a mist of Nitrogen. The Nitrogen is safe and non-toxic and makes up 80% of our natural atmosphere. This dry mist gently chills the skin while leaving your core warm, thus stimulating your body’s natural healing process.
What is Local Cryotherapy?
Local Cryotherapy is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which stimulates cold receptors all over the body in order to trigger an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, local cryotherapy allows us to treat a specific location and is much more powerful and efficient than traditional ice baths. Patients frequently combine this application with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”. With temperatures as low as -240 degrees Fahrenheit, a local cryotherapy treatment generally takes about 5-10 minutes depending on the area treated. A local cryotherapy treatment provides the patient with a rush of oxygenated blood, a natural analgesic effect and a reduction in muscle tension in the treatment area. Post-treatment, the microcirculation in the treatment area provide muscles with increased rates of healing and recovery, and the natural analgesic effect and relaxation of muscles allows the patient to increase their exercise tolerance, as well as strengthen the muscles and joints to reduce the possibility of injury in the future.
LiveO2 (Oxygen Therapy)
When oxygen levels are increased, the red blood cells and plasma pick up the extra oxygen, and provide it to our body tissues. Waste gases and toxins are removed more efficiently and cells begin to function normally. Anaerobic viruses, bacteria and fungi, unable to live in an oxygen – enriched environment, are compromised.
Oxygen builds resistance to infections like yeast (candida albicans) that thrive in an oxygen deficient environment. Oxygen helps to neutralize acids in our body, like lactic acid resulting from muscle overload. Our body’s chemical reactions are “fired-up” due to the increased oxygen levels. We burn fat more efficiently. Sleep often improves. We feel better, our body is healthier and we think more clearly because of increased oxygenation.
What is Cryo T-Shock?
We are proud to offer Cryo T Shock services and are the first in Idaho to do so. The Cryo T-Shock by Pagani has been used in premium spas throughout Europe for several years. Cryo T-Shock is the most innovative and versatile anti-aging device on the market to treat localized fat, reduce cellulite, and tone and tighten the skin.
It uses state-of-the-art thermography and cryotherapy (thermal shock) to reshape the body.
Cryo T-Shock offers both CryoSlimming and CryoToning services.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy re-energizes damaged cells by inducing electrical changes within the cell that restore it to its normal healthy state. Because of this, cellular metabolism is boosted, blood cells are regenerated, circulation is improved, and oxygen carrying capacity is increased. Ultimately, the immune system becomes healthier, the nervous system relaxes, bones and joints become stronger, and vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, and colon are able to rid themselves of impurities thus detoxifying the body. PEMF can reduce pain and improve the quality of your life by allowing your body to function as it was designed to do.
What is it and how does it work?
A CRYOfacial is a non-invasive technique that uses gentle bursts of pressurized, hyper-cooled air (-240F) to rapidly lower the surface temperature of your scalp and your skin on both the face and the neck. The cold temperature instantly causes your skin to tighten, which helps fill in wrinkles and fine lines. It only takes a matter of minutes to complete the process, and results are quickly visible. If you have inflammation in your face or a slight discoloration due to minor damage, this therapy can reduce both since it promotes better circulation. The facial is not painful, and many people say that it is relaxing. The result is a more even toned, youthful appearance without the use of injections and expensive facial creams. There is no downtime after the procedure.
Functional improvement throughout the body!
Photobiomodulation therapy uses both near infrared (NIR) light and visible red light wavelengths to stimulate repair and normalize cellular function. This therapeutic use of these specific wavelengths have been studied for nearly 4 decades and have over 600 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published and featured in over 4000 lab studies. PBM is currently being used in thousands of clinics, hospitals, and by professional sport organizations around the globe.
The wavelengths we use are non-ionizing, meaning they do not damage cells, but actually stimulate repair via photons into our tissue. PBM does not heat tissue, however it does increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced. Acute conditions often improve in only a handful of treatments and chronic conditions are often improved over 1-2 months depending on the severity and the condition being treated. Minimum interval recommendations are 3 times week until results are achieved.

I wouldn’t call it new, since we have been doing cryotherapy for 8 years and it has been successfully used in Europe for decades before that, but it is great to see more leading doctors trying it for themselves their patients and acknowledging the fact that cryotherapy speeds healing.Posted by Boise Cryotherapy on Monday, January 7, 2019
