What is Cryotherapy?
Whole-Body Cryotherapy is an innovative treatment combined with cutting-edge technology to speed up recovery and re-energize the body. Treatments and are quick, painless and non-invasive.
Cryotherapy, or more simply Cold Treatment or Cold Therapy, as its sometimes called, is a medical treatment where a state of the art Cryotherapy Chamber is used to expose the body to very low temperatures.
The positive effects of cryotherapy have been recognized for hundreds of years but its absolute potential has only been discovered recently.
For many years people have tried to capture the benefit of cryotherapy with the use of ice baths, cold showers and ice water swimming.
These are far from the most effective methods though, and studies indicate that you would need to submerge yourself in ice cold water for upwards of 45 minutes to get even close to matching the benefits gained from a Whole Body Cryotherapy session – something that’s simply not possible for us mere mortals (unless you are Wim Hof himself!).
The exciting fact here is that those benefits are now available to everyone at 7CryoHealth!
The use of Whole Body Cryotherapy is attributed to maximising the potential for a rapid and improved response to injury, to long-term conditioning of the body and for the observed positive aesthetic effects it can have on the skin to supplement beauty treatments.
The benefits don’t stop there, both clinical research and anecdotal evidence show that Whole Body Cryotherapy can not only result in impressive improvements in energy due the resultant rush endorphins after your treatment, but has long been used in many countries to treat anxiety and depression.
This flood of endorphins and the long standing state of relaxation, resulting from a cryotherapy treatment has many positive benefits for sufferers of anxiety and depression.

What is Floating?
The water contained in our 'float pod' contains half a tonne of magnesium packed, Epsom salt, this increase in water density allows you to float effortlessly giving the effect of complete weightlessness.
The water matches the temperature of your skin as does the air around you.
It's usually pitch black and silent in the pod too, unless you wish to have relaxing music, or the light on.
This places you in what is very likely the most stimulus free environment on earth.
Free from sensory input, the muscular-skeletal system and sympathetic nervous system wind down into a state of deep relaxation and serenity, in which your body and mind can heal and replenish - resulting in many benefits, like reduced stress and better sleep.
A float lasts for 1 hour (or longer if you wish), your treat will start with 10 minutes of gentle, relaxing music at the beginning to help you melt into float mode – if you’d like music for longer just let us know and we will make it so.
You have full control of opening and closing the pod, and of the light inside ensuring you are comfortable at all times.
Our relaxing music starts again 5 minutes before the end of you float, signalling that the time has come to emerge from your relax state and to re-enter the world.
At 7CryoHealth, this all happens in your own private room, equipped with a shower, complimentary toiletries and a towel.
Once washed and dressed why not move to our changing room where a vanity station and hair drying facilities are available.
When you switch the pod light off, you will experience total darkness. Some imagine the darkness as a blank canvas for your mind. You can turn the light on again at any time.
We have gone to great lengths to male our float room as silent as we possible can, but by the time you are submerged in our pod with your ear plugs in you'll be in an environment where you are experiencing an environment where the lack of sound frees your mind even more.
Floating effortlessly, and free from weight or pressure, your muscles relax, allowing your spine to realign and lengthen. It's a sense of balance you may not have experienced before.
NO SENSE OF TOUCH
With the air and water in the pod both at body temperature you won't be able to feel where your body starts and the water ends.
Allow us to wholly uncouple your mind from the stresses and strains of your environment around you and to experience the ultimate in relaxation.
