Desert Ridge Cryo eases aches of all sorts in just a few short minutes. Sessions inside the clinic's cryotherapy chambers take as little as 2.5 minutes. In that time, clients can achieve the same level of pain relief as 20 minutes in an ice bath. But, unlike an ice bath, cryotherapy doesn't affect core temperature. Instead, only the skin is super-cooled, which increases circulation and promotes healing while reducing pain and inflammation. These effects are lauded by athletes looking to speed recovery and improve performance, but many pain sufferers—including those with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis—also seek the therapy's benefits.
