London Cryotherapy - What is cryotherapy? - How does cryotherapy work?


What Is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a form of treatment that uses extremely low temperatures to trigger a physiological response from the body. Cryotherapy consists of briefly exposing the body to extremely cold air (-85 ˚C down to -110˚C, brrrrr) by standing or sitting in a cryo chamber for a few minutes.

How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Very cold temperatures are able to constrict the blood vessels and in doing so, blood moves away from your limbs and goes towards the body’s organs. This then increases oxygen and anti-inflammatory proteins while helping to reduce inflammation, decrease stress, improve sleep, increase metabolism, enhance immune function & speed up recovery among many other benefits.

What are the key benefits of Cryotherapy?

There are lots of benefits to cryotherapy, and Get A Drip could talk about them all day, but we want to make this quick and easy for you! So, here are the key benefits that you can experience.

Improved mental well-being – Cryotherapy can help improve your mental well-being. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression or stress, cryotherapy sessions can ease your mind. Exposure to the extremely cold conditions can cause the body to release adrenaline and endorphins which impact mood.

Pain management – If you are experiencing pain because of a condition or injury, it can be aided with cryotherapy by reducing the number of pain signals your brain receives, and cryotherapy also reduces inflammation. As a result of this, you can experience ease in pain after each session. Arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, are just some of the painful conditions, this treatment can help.

Recovery from injuries – If you’re suffering from an injury caused by playing sports, work or similar, cryotherapy can help. Regular cryotherapy sessions can help with reducing swelling and inflammation. For athletes, cryotherapy is particularly good because it also helps heal tender and painful muscles.

Weight lossCryotherapy can also help you if you are on a weight loss journey, as exposure to extremely cold temperatures burns calories and boosts your metabolic rate. So, you can feel energised after the session, and after more than one, you will start to see and feel a difference in weight. However, it won’t work on its own, you will still need a balanced diet and exercise of course!

Across the world, cryotherapy is used for sports, medical purposes or just to support your everyday health & wellness - it's the perfect solution.

Whether you're a long time fan of cryotherapy or it's a new concept to you, Get A Drip has a launch offer that is too good to be missed. With sessions starting from just


Frequently Asked Questions

The microbiome is a community of bacteria that live in the gut. Nowadays, we know that over 1,000 different types of microbes are active in the human intestines. Thanks to major advances in technology, it is now possible to perform accurate analyses of the microbiome using 16S rRNA sequencing to identify these bacteria based on their DNA. In fact, the genes in the human microbiome outnumber the genes in the human body 100 to 1.

Gut bacteria are part of a big group of microbes that perform important jobs for the human body like digesting food and breaking down dietary fibre, synthesising vitamins and essential chemical compounds as well as protecting the body from inflammation. Some bacteria may participate in the development of certain illnesses but, for most species, only if they are present in abnormal amounts. When the microbiome is balanced, it is able to prevent the intrusion and overgrowth of potentially pathogenic bacteria, thus contributing to overall health

The Atlas Microbiome Test (Ohmygut® test) analyses the types of bacteria present and their proportion in the overall microbiome. It provides information about the various functions of your gut bacteria, like the extent to which they protect you against certain diseases and inflammation, as well as what vitamins they synthesise. You will also get recommendations to improve and maintain the balance of your microbiome by adding specific foods to your diet.

No. The Atlas Microbiome Test is only for use by adults over 18 years old. The microbiome of children changes and evolves during infancy, childhood, and adolescence and this isn’t accounted for in our interpretation system, which is why our test is not suitable for children

Atlas Biomed uses advanced technology to analyse the DNA of your gut bacteria. Unlike conventional laboratory analysis, the Atlas Microbiome Test not only qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria, but also calculates the proportion of different types of bacteria in the microbiome.The 16S rRNA sequencing technology that is used for the Atlas Microbiome Test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that cannot be cultivated in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis).

More than 20,000 scientific articles have been published about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions over the past decade. New research is released in this field every month. We used this extensive body of scientific evidence to develop the interpretation system for the Atlas Microbiome Test.

This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply ‘good’ or ‘bad’ species. Rather, how microbes participate in health or illness is dependent on their abundance in the overall ecosystem and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided in your personal account have been developed on the basis of microbiome research by doctors and scientists.

No, you should not change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do — this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your ‘normal’ microbiome and provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it.

We recommend that you collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. Additionally if you have been taking antibiotics, a course of NSAID’s or have undergone surgery, please wait three months before taking the Atlas Biomed Microbiome Test.

If gastrointestinal symptoms and medication are part of your every day life, you may proceed to take the test without waiting. The reason for this is because you would be providing us a sample based on your most typical microbiome.

If your symptoms and medication are only temporary and you take our Microbiome test, the results provided, as well as the food recommendations may no longer be valid once your course is completed or symptoms have cleared; this is because your microbiome can drastically change during a course of medication or bouts of illness.

You don’t have to change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do — this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your “normal” microbiome and provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it.

You should only collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a short course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test. If the medication taken is a part of your every day life, you will be able to provide a sample as it will be based on your most typical microbiome.

This test is intended solely for the use of persons aged 18 and over.
