About Cryo Arctic
Cryo-Arctic, Westchester’s premier health and wellness spa, is a new cultural hub for health. Our non-invasive techniques help heal pain and inflammation in the body naturally. As the opioid epidemic continues to spread, people are realizing the medication is not a sustainable answer to pain relief. The autoimmune community is also at a lost because using prednisone and immune suppressing medication only masks the disease with countless negative side effects. Ironically, cryotherapy was invented in 1978 by Toshima Yamauchi, a Japanese medical doctor who was seeking treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Early therapies involved applying freezing instruments to small, targeted areas of the body, and the process has evolved over time.
CRYO-ARCTIC is a health and wellness spa located at 666 Lexington Ave., Suite 111, Mount Kisco, NY. We chose this location next to Green’s Natural Food market because you are what you eat. Food is the source of all true health and we couldn’t think a better location to reach a healthy conscious client. Cryo-Arctic believes that inflammation in the body is the leading cause of all pain and disease in the body. We encourage clients to change their diets, which will assist in relieving inflammation in the body from the inside out. Then we use cryotherapy to reduce inflammation from the outside in. Cryotherapy shocks the body with extremely cold temperatures (-220 degrees) for 3 minutes. The body is put into flight or fight response, which releases endorphins and relieves the body of inflammation. The client is left pain free with an overall feeling of well being. Cryotherapy can be administered through the full body or localized through a smaller machine that doubles as a facial machine.

Interesting Facts About Cryotherapy
The body responds completely different to Cryostimulation than what it does to icing or ice baths.
Icing cools down tissue and slows down cellular activity. Cryotherapy only stimulates the very top level of the skin which causes the tissue to heat up through speeding up cellular activity.
Cryotherapy’s stimulatory effect causes blood vessels to dilate, increasing peripheral blood flow (circulation) and thus oxygenation to tissue by up to 4 times.
Cryotherapy stimulates the release of beta-endorphins which are powerful painkilling hormones in the body.
Cryotherapy is excellent for injury recovery, ideal for injuries older than 72 hours. It reduces recovery time by up to 50%.
Cryotherapy has a marked anti-inflammatory effect on the body. The response in the body is mediated by proteins called cytokines. Cryotherapy has been shown to increase anti-inflammatory cytokines.
The body’s metabolic rate is accelerated following whole body cryotherapy as it attempts to generate heat as compensation for the cold exposure.
It has been reported that following a session of whole body cryotherapy, the body can burn up to 800 calories through the metabolic heat generating process.
We offer Infrared hot sauna for clients that cannot tolerate the frigid -220 degree temperatures
Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue, which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.

This was my first experience with cryotherapy, and I am so glad that I did it! The session was so unique and invigorating, and the owners were very attentive to, and thoughtful of, my individual questions and needs. I slept very well that night and had noticeably more energy the next day. I am definitely turning my husband onto this, to help with chronic pain issues. Thank you for bringing such a great service to our area!
