Cryo Local is the high-tech alternative to applying an ice pack to an injury – a continuous stream of cold air is targeted at a specific area of the body.
Previously only accessible to professional athletes, localised cryotherapy is now available at our Sevenoaks clinic.

Q. Does it hurt?
A. No. You will probably experience some tightening of the skin. The air jet is dry rather than wet like ice, so although it is cold, it will not hurt.
Q. How many sessions should I have?
A. This will depend on your condition. You will likely feel some immediate benefit from your first Local Cryotherapy session, but the benefits are cumulative and best results are generally achieved with a series.
Q. Is it safe?
A. Yes, local cryotherapy is non-invasive and generally accepted to be very safe. Always check that you are being treated by a properly trained consultant and discuss your treatment with your consultant if you have any concerns. If you are pregnant or have hypertension or cardiovascular problems you should avoid cryotherapy. See our waiver for details. If in doubt, consult your doctor.
