Experience the amazing benefits of cryogenic therapy at RLab’s state-of-the-art facility in Shop 5, 7 Gregory Hills Drive, Gregory Hills, Sydney. Cryotherapy is an efficient, effective and non-invasive way to maximise your body’s performance capabilities and help it to recover faster. The treatment involves your body being immersed in a chamber filled with fine nitrogen mist that is cooled to -110 to -170 degrees for up to three minutes.
Chilling your body to this temperature activates our most powerful survival mechanism, causing our blood vessels to contract and send blood from the skin surface to our major organs as a way to maintain our core body temperature. As the blood is moving, it fills with oxygen, nutrients and healing enzymes, before returning to your skin and muscle tissue. Cryotherapy has been proven to elicit a myriad of benefits, including relieving muscle soreness and pain, accelerating injury recovery, boosting collagen production, reducing cellulite and improving immunity levels.

01 / Pain relief and muscle healing
Cryotherapy can provide relief from chronic pain and reduce the amount of time it takes for muscles to heal from strains. Think of it as one giant ice pack for your body.
02 / Weight loss
Cryotherapy is an excellent addition or ‘booster’ to any weight loss routine. Being cold forces your body to work harder to stay warm, supporting the weight loss process. The treatment is fantastic for healing Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
03 / Reduced inflammation
Chronic inflammation is a result of the body becoming overly reactive when it comes to fighting infection. Studies have shown that reducing inflammation can improve overall health, and cryotherapy is an excellent method for this.
04 / Reducing anxiety and depression
As cryotherapy can reduce inflammation, it can also improve mental health conditions that are associated with inflammation, like anxiety and depression. You’ll leave the chamber with a burst of serotonin making you feel refreshed and positive.
05 / Anti-ageing and skin health
Cryotherapy can achieve amazing results for your skin’s appearance and health. By freezing the outer layer of the skin, the body is encouraged to produce more collagen, meaning the skin regains elasticity and appears younger, smoother and more refined.
06 / Sports recovery
Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is caused by micro-tears in muscles, and is the curse of athletes and enthusiastic gym-goers alike. Luckily, cryotherapy can help you recover (and get back in the gym) faster.

Have some questions?
How does cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy works for our bodies in a few different ways. Firstly, it induces the release of norepinephrine into our bloodstreams. This hormone is also a neurotransmitter that plays an important role when it comes to our ability to focus, our cognition levels, our mood and our energy levels. It does this by limiting the amount of TNF-alpha that the body releases, inhibiting inflammatory pathways.
Cryotherapy treatments also make our bodies release ‘cold shock proteins’. This special type of protein is involved in the metabolism of lipids, meaning your body will increase its ability as a lean, mean, fat-burning machine.
Does cryotherapy hurt?
We like to describe cryotherapy as a combination of goosebumps and pins and needles. Some areas are more sensitive than others, and sensitivity tends to increase the further away you get from the core of your body. We often find that the worst part for first-timers is the anticipation, and if it does get too much – you can stop at any time!
