Introducing Troop Cryotherapy
It’s like a penny has dropped, Cryojuveante has been offering what I’d now like to officially name the ‘Troop Cryo’ sessions since we launched back in 2017, however, it’s never been made official. We are and have collaborated with many of the best athletes and clubs in and around Kent, and in some cases further afield because cryotherapy is just the best way to recover, rejuvenate and revitalise.
So are you part of a GROUP, TEAM, SQUAD or CLUB? So many of our regular clients compete in or coach various sports and have been calling out for a group-based service – we’ve heard you and it is here! Cue… Troop Cryo where you can take on the force of the freeze in our whole body cryotherapy chamber with your troop (4-8 people).
Why? Because coming together with your squad keeps you motivated, committed, and accountable for your training and recovery but most of all – it’s really fun! From stretching to handstands, from singing to dancing, from making Tik Toks and even reading in the chamber – we’ve seen it all!
Who is Troop Cryo for?
Essentially, this is perfect for anybody in a competitive sport. Maybe you’re not looking for a year-round service but you need that super-charged blitz and boost power to give you the edge before an important competition or event. To give you an idea:
- Runners and running clubs
- Athletic Clubs
- Football Clubs
- Netball Clubs
- Hockey Clubs
- Rugby Clubs
- Swimming Clubs
- Cricket Clubs
- Basketball Clubs
- Tennis Clubs
- Winter Sports

…………..or maybe you are a troop of work colleagues and looking for your next team building event, wedding party, reunion, or a workout group?
What is Whole-body Cryotherapy
Whole-body Cryotherapy is an innovative treatment combined with cutting-edge technology to speed up recovery and re-energize the body. Treatments use cold air and are quick, painless, and non-invasive. They expose the body to specifically controlled temperatures which can go as low as -85°C to -90°C using our electric chamber.
Exposure to extreme cold has been proven to increase the body’s blood flow to the muscles and the impact of the treatment is instant and this acceleration in healing means that physical performance improves with a return to activity far quicker than might overwise have been expected.
Sessions last between 3-5 minutes and have long-lasting benefits.
The Benefits of Cryotherapy
The intensity of training before a competition, match, or event means that competitors/players are at high risk of injury, particularly muscle and ligament strains and contusions, often with inadequate recovery time. Not to mention the huge amount of mental and emotional pressure, which certainly takes its toll. Ideal for pre AND post-training, here’s how cryotherapy could help:
- Gives your body a chance to heal and prepare for the next training load
- Decreases the risk of injury, overtraining & burnout
- Essential for muscle growth by repairing tissue and replenishing glycogen (energy stores)
- Better performance, endurance, agility & reaction time
- Reduces muscle fatigue and soreness
- Gives your body time to adapt to the ‘stress’ associated with exercise
- Better quality of sleep (exercise produces energy-boosting hormones like cortisol and adrenaline but constant exercise overproduces these hormones giving you a hard time getting good quality sleep, which makes fatigue and exhaustion worse)
- Reduces inflammation & swelling (linked to pain and discomfort)
- Improves blood circulation
- Decreases stress hormone
- Mental clarity and improved mood
- Increases energy levels
- Boosts immune system
Other benefits of cryotherapy that isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker for our sporting heroes but still pretty good (we’ll call these the Brucie Bonus’!)
- Brightens and tones skin
- Boost metabolism
- Each session burns approx. 500-800 calories
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Activates collagen production in the skin
- Can improve symptoms of specific conditions such as; auto-immune disorders, allergy relief, migraines, anxiety and depression, insomnia, bruising, post-surgery rehabilitation, and many more

Other cryotherapy treatments that might interest you
As well as our cryotherapy chamber, we offer other complementary treatments for a 360 approach to wellness –
This is a targeted cold therapy using a handheld device. Quick, easy, and pain-free – the treatment takes only 10 minutes to administer. Concentrating on a specific area of pain, local cryo has an analgesic effect which leads to a reduction in pain whilst also reducing inflammation and supporting recovery from sports and lifestyle injuries and post-op rehabilitation.

Vitamin Booster Injections & IV Therapy
Keeping energy and immunity up and looking after overall wellness is imperative because, quite frankly, when your body is lacking in something (minerals or vitamins) it just won’t give you what you need. For this reason, it’s pretty common to see athletes popping in for a top-up on this good stuff to keep them in tip-top condition, all season-long.

How to book
Hear how Ebbsfleet United used Cryotherapy to bring their boys back into the Game
At the time, Fleet vice-chairman Peter Varney had been more than pleased with the pay-off from the treatments. “The players are regular users of the Cryojuvenate facilities,” he said. “We’ve found the chamber has been very effective for addressing tiredness and aching limbs and the specialist equipment means we can target injuries. We’ve had good outcomes with players making a quicker return from injury than would normally be the case. I really can’t speak highly enough of the professionalism of Ruth and her team.”
