SUMMIT, NJ - Whole body and local cryotherapy stimulates the body to regenerate itself naturally, helping to reduce chronic pain and fatigue, speed recovery from injuries, and improve sports performance.

Popular among doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and most professional athletes, Revivify's whole body cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen converted into a gas form in order to lower a client’s skin surface temperature by 30 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of 2.5 to 3 minutes in a cryosauna. Your skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that acts as a stimulant to the regulatory functions of the body that commence a wide variety of processes to regenerate your body. As a result, your body is working to repair all areas that may not be working to their fullest potential.As mentioned, the cryosauna is cooled using liquid nitrogen but clients are not in direct contact with the gas, which is dry.

"This place is pretty chill - In all seriousness, I've never felt better coming off a 30-minute run on a treadmill. That is definitely due to the cryotherapy sessions I've done at Revivify. My joints and ligaments feel loose as ever and my recovery time is lightning fast. You'll definitely reap the benefits after your first session."

"I have been going for whole body cryotherapy treatments two or three times a week since Revivify opened.  It really helps with the inflammation and pain of osteoarthritis in my knees and hips and helps me to sleep much better at night.  The staff is professional and friendly.  I highly recommend these treatments."

Originally was developed by Toshima Yamauchi in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, whole body cryotherapy's benefits have since been studied and refined in Asia, Europe and Russia over the past 30 years without any severe adverse reactions ever recorded. The nitrogen being used for the cryotherapy treatments is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe, which is in fact 78% nitrogen.

In the single person cryosauna the client breathes the room air since the operator raises the platform the client stands up on so that their head is above the heavier nitrogen vapors. This is to ensure the client does not breathe air within the cryosauna that contains 100% nitrogen, which can be dangerous. As a result, for added safety, our cryosauna is equipped with an oxygen monitor at the level of the client’s mouth. The nitrogen supply will shut off if the oxygen concentration drops by 0.5%.  In addition, protection of more sensitive tissues, such as your hands and feet, are insured by providing clients with dry socks, clogs and gloves.

"Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Went to try the whole body cryotherapy after an intense workout. Helped my sore legs heal faster. Definitely going back!"

- Allison

"Great experience, the treatment really works and great staff. I'm an active bike rider with bad knees. The cryotherapy really helped with inflammation and speeded recovery following a big workout.  The staff are terrific too.  Especially nice as they talk you through the treatment the first time so there are no surprises."

- Jeff

Cryotherapy differs from an ice bath in regards to the skin temperature achieved and the reaction your body has to each treatment. In an ice bath. you are simply unable to achieve the same results as with cryotherapy as, in an ice bath, after 12 to 15 minutes the skin temperature only arrives at 41 degrees while within 2 to 3 minutes of whole body cryotherapy the skin temperature gets as low as 32 degrees. As a result, this lower skin temperature allows for a stronger physiological response from the body to increase your speed of recovery and overall healing that does not occur with the traditional ice bath.

After the first session, your body starts this process of self-repair as mentioned. However, depending on the specific repair your looking to achieve from this type of procedure (i.e. arthritis, post surgical recovery, muscular recovery from exercise, etc…), the effects may take additional treatments. Regardless, after the first treatment, your body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. These mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for a day producing feelings of overall wellness, more focus, better mood and improved sleep.

When you workout after your cryotherapy session, you can expect a higher pain tolerance, more energy and greater flexibility. If you workout before your exposure, you can expect greater recovery due to the inflammation reduction. However, if your workout includes resistance training, research has shown that individuals performing cryotherapy should wait an hour after resistance training as not to hinder certain bodily processes that aid in building muscular strength.

"I have been going to Revivify three times a week every week for two months now, and I could not be happier with the results.  As a long distance runner, I have been plagued with shin and Achilles pain.  Through the use of full body cryo therapy, my leg pain has been reduced to almost non existent.  The helpful and friendly staff took the time to speak and work with me on stretching techniques and other remedies to alleviate my pain and discomfort from running.  I have tried everything that revivify has to offer, from full body and local cryo therapy to the compression boots and state-of-the-art infrared sauna, and I can say that this place is top notch across the board.  I would highly recommend that anyone that experiences any kind of pain, be it athletic or otherwise, go see the friendly folks at Revivify. Personally I could not be more pleased with the results!!"

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
