Cryo Cold Treatments at the Wellness Clinic at KurSpa - Sparkling Hill Resort
The Cryo Cold Chamber -the signature treatment of KurSpa at Sparkling Hill Resort - although fairly popular in Europe, is still relatively new to North America. While originally known as an anti-inflammatory treatment for rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, Cryo Cold Chamber treatments have been noted in easing symptoms relating neurological diseases by reducing spasticity of the muscles as well as having sedative effect on psoriasis and neurodermatitis.
How it works
The Wellness Clinic at KurSpa is the only location in North America to offer the three chamber approach to Cryo treatments. Guests become quickly used to the cold and any residual moisture evaporates from the skin within the first two chambers so that by the time they enter the -110 °C chamber the cold is quite bearable due to the almost 0% humidity. Patients then stay in the third chamber for a total of 3 minutes and are lead through the experience by one of our kinesiologists or spa professionals, who remains inside the chamber at all times to encourage participants. The blood vessels quickly build a protection zone while the core body temperature is maintained. The effect of this whole-body treatment is systemic, whereby during and after the cold treatment, the nervous and circulatory systems are given a boost. For longer-lasting results, subsequent treatments are suggested. As one of our signature treatments, the Cryo Cold Chamber is our only treatment that is available to the public, without a stay at Sparkling Hill.
Traditionally, guests that have completed a series of Cryo Cold Chamber treatments have noted improvement with the following:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Chronic pain (accompanied by inflammation)

Athletes and Recovery Time
A growing application for Cryo Cold Chamber treatments is aiding in reducing the length of recovery time for athletes post injury or surgery. The treatment can be used before and after surgical repair of joints, ligaments and muscles to control the swelling and aid in the flow of oxygen and nutrition to the affected area. After a Cryo Cold Chamber treatment, athletes have experienced pain relief that can last several hours, perfect for conducting movement physical therapy and manual treatments. To maximize your benefit of the Cryo Cold Chamber it is recommended that you complete a series of treatments once or twice daily over the course of 10 to 30 days.
