About this service

Cryotherapy uses extreme cold temperatures to promote natural recovery and well-being. Undoubtedly inspired by ancient Nordic or mountain practices of ice baths, this modern technology is widely used by high-level athletes, and is increasingly within the reach of everyone. The cryosauna uses liquid nitrogen vapor to expose the body to temperatures well below zero degrees (-110 to -170 C) for one to three minutes. This exposure prompts the body to briefly develop survival and cold-fighting reflexes, causing the release of endorphins, which can reduce pain and inflammation. Cryosauna uses natural biological mechanisms and reactions known to provide analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects on the body. Origin Wellness offers CryoRecover sessions for a specific part of the body in cases of injury, pain, or if an individual is not able to do CryoRevive otherwise known as Whole-Body Cryotherapy. Top athletes often use cryotherapy instead of ice baths to avoid dermatological problems.

The benefits of CryoRecover, as reported by research and users:

  • Helps in detoxification
  • Helps soothe muscle pain, tendonitis, and joint pain from osteoarthritis
  • Helps improve muscle recovery after physical exertion and after musculoskeletal injury
  • Supports tissue regeneration
  • Helps improve mood and quality of sleep
  • Great anti-aging support
  • Ideal to accompany the sessions of the different therapists (medical doctor, physiotherapist, osteopath, naturopath, nutritionist, massage therapist, fascia therapist, etc.

CryoTherapy lets us look at cold in a whole new way. While it can do harm, it still essential for life; many plants, trees and animals require a period of cold. The same is true for humans, and cryotherapy can help a lot with that.

Preparing for the Service

As with all of our services, we recommend drinking plenty of water both before and after the session to help with the elimination of toxins. High quality water is provided at Origin Wellness.

Take off anything metallic in the area you would like to be treated including all rings, watches and other jewelry. This includes piercings.

We advise doing regular sessions in cases of strong inflammation. For example, a series of 8-12 successive sessions, 3-4 sessions per week, is recommended for inflammatory conditions and chronic pain. 2-3 sessions per month are recommended for wellness and anti-aging.

Smoking should be avoided 1 hour before and after treatment, because nicotine is a vasoconstrictor.

This place is a dream! So much so that after a few amazing treatments at Origin Wellness I  had a vivid dream that I hid in the building so I could stay overnight and enjoy all that this place has to offer. I woke up feeling so satisfied...My advice - try  everything!

Karen Buckley

I have never experienced anything as relaxing and restorative as my day spent here! I started with the intro session and the next day did a full day of services all planned specifically for me by their amazing staff. I left feeling with a sense of calm and yet a renewed energy. It was fun, healing and for a whole day of services, really affordable! I can't wait to go back!

What an awesome place! I've never experienced such amazing services...all under one roof. Origin Wellness is innovative with cutting edge treatments right here in St. Louis!  Highly recommend the salt room and Bio Balance. Thermal Relax is sensational.  I have throbbing varicose veins. After just one treatment in the thermal relax bed, the throbbing had subsided and my circulation was improved.
