A NEW state-of-the-art facility has opened to the general public, offering up to -135 degree, extreme cold treatment which helps aid sports recovery and ease medical conditions.
CryoLabs Glasgow uses sophisticated technology from CryoAction to offer the latest and best type of whole-body cryotherapy to those that want to speed up recovery from exercise, reduce sporting injuries, increase immunity and improve their sleep quality.
The new Glasgow-based site is home to a six-person professional chamber which is open seven days a week and has already been booked for use by Scottish Premier League players, professional boxers, and a number of elite athletes from local Centres of Excellence for Sports.
The professional medical quality treatment which consistently operates optimum the temperature of -135-degrees, has been developed by CryoAction, and is available in three-minute slots – bookings are available via the CryoLab’s website.
As well as improving sporting performance and recovery, the extreme cold treatment can be used to ease symptoms of medical conditions including multiple sclerosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia skin conditions and anxiety, as well as improve sleep.
Ian Watson, director at CryoLabs, commented: “Despite the advantages of extreme cold treatment being commonly known, accessibility to facilities offering professional clinical quality chambers has been the preserve of elite sportspeople. However, we want to offer those that like to keep fit, amateur sports players and those suffering from common medical conditions access to the best quality treatment too. The Glasgow site offers exactly the same technology used by the players of Glasgow Rangers FC and other top Premier League clubs.”
Ian Saunders, CEO and co-founder at CryoAction, commented: “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to provide top quality cryotherapy to millions of people in Glasgow and beyond, and enable the general public access to the same quality cryotherapy that is used by our national sporting heroes.”
“We hope to give those planning a 10k run or charity cycle the same sporting and recovery advantage as elite sports people. And improve the quality of life for thousands of people suffering with the symptoms of common illnesses which can be treated with cryotherapy.”
The new Glasgow site is the first to offer CryoAction facilities to the general public in Scotland, and opening in February 2020, with single sessions starting from £50. Users are able to book single sessions or multiple packages of three, five and ten sessions, as well as longer term membership schemes.
