CryotherapyStay Strong, Stay Young

Awazul is Maui’s only comprehensive wellness spa to offer Cryosauna, Local Cryo, and Cryo Facials.

Our mission is to offer a way to combat, heal, and get relief from the three most common causes of feeling unwell – inflammation, stress, and toxicity.

Cryotherapy uses your body’s natural reaction to extreme cold temperatures. This completely dry and non-invasive facial uses nitrogen vapors to shrink pores and tighten skin on contact. Eliminate fine lines and blemishes, help heal scars, and reduce the appearance of brown spots and puffiness all in 12 minutes. No need to take your makeup off. No post-recovery time! Just, you, less puffy, bright-eyed, and glowing!

Introduction to Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy, derived from the Greek words "cryo" (cold) and "therapy" (treatment), is a cutting-edge wellness practice involving exposure to extremely low temperatures for therapeutic benefits. 

Originating from ancient cryo applications, contemporary cryotherapy has evolved into various forms, including Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), Localized Cryotherapy, and Cryo Facials. This holistic approach, often called cold therapy, harnesses the power of extreme cold to promote overall well-being and address specific health and beauty concerns. 

Benefits of Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy provides diverse health benefits, offering potent pain relief, reducing inflammation, and aiding muscle recovery. It stimulates collagen production for skin rejuvenation, bolsters the immune system, and enhances overall well-being. It makes cryotherapy an ideal choice for athletes and individuals with chronic pain seeking comprehensive wellness therapy.

The Cryotherapy Procedure

For your cryotherapy session, wear dry, comfortable clothing. Brace for extreme cold at -150°C (-238°F) in the chamber for 2-4 minutes. Feel a brief chill stimulating circulation and your body’s natural healing. Cold air envelops, promoting vasoconstriction and easing inflammation. 

This controlled cold treatment process aims to rejuvenate, ensuring improved well-being.

Who Can Benefit from Cryotherapy?

Ideal candidates for cryotherapy encompass athletes seeking enhanced performance and recovery, individuals looking for chronic pain relief, and those pursuing cosmetic benefits for skin health and anti-aging solutions.

Cryotherapy and Sports Recovery

Cryotherapy is a game-changer in sports recovery, accelerating muscle healing and optimizing performance. Athletes embrace its role in reducing inflammation, alleviating muscle soreness, and promoting faster recovery. With its ability to enhance circulation and mitigate fatigue, cryotherapy helps athletes achieve performance enhancement and efficient recovery.

Cryotherapy for Skin and Beauty

Cosmetic cryotherapy harnesses the power of extreme cold to promote skin health and combat aging. This innovative approach fosters collagen production, rejuvenates the skin, and is recognized for its anti-aging benefits, providing a transformative experience.

Questions& Answers

Cryotherapy sounds a bit scary. What makes it feel good?

The 3 minute treatment reduces inflammation and releases endorphins that help alleviate pain, boost energy and metabolism, and increase the body’s natural healing abilities. It gives you a burst of energy similar to the “runner’s high”

I’m trying to get into shape. In other words, I’m no Tom Brady. Is Cryo safe for me?

As long as you don’t have a medical condition that would be worsened by the vasoconstriction and vasodilation that is the main effect of cryo, (see list below) anyone can do cryo. From the elite athlete, the weekend warrior, the post-op patient, the person that is in chronic pain looking for an alternative form of relief, the person with migraines, chronic fatigue, to the person wishing to lose weight or stay youthful cryo is the way to restore.

How do you prevent me from getting frostbite?

The cases of frostbite exist in centers that disregard the safety measures that need to be followed every time you are dealing with Nitrogen and extreme cold temperatures. At Awazul, our cryo professionals are trained on the risks of frostbite, directly by our founder, a Medical Doctor.

We provide gloves and booties similar to those you wear while in the snow. During your session, you’re monitored from start to finish.

What can I do to be safe in the cryosauna?

Damp or wet skin can get frostbite. If you’re sweaty from a workout, or were at the beach, have wet socks or damp boxers, you could get frostbite. You must be dry.

A Cryofacial is relaxing, but does it improve my skin?

  • A Cryofacial activates collagen production resulting in smoother, tighter, more even skin tone.
  • A Cryofacial Plumps up the skin and diminishes fine lines and the signs of aging.
  • A Cryofacial Stimulates cellular regeneration and promotes mild exfoliation leading to a refreshed and renewed glow.
  • A Cryofacial is a great treatment for acne. The cold temperature naturally kills the bacteria that lives on the skin causing the acne as well as diminishes the inflammation.
  • Cryo's Anti-Inflammatory effect greatly improves skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and acne, while increased circulation brings nutrients to the skin and scalp. This reduces puffiness in the face and brightens dark circles, contributing to a refreshed, well-rested appearance.
  • Cryotherapy can also bring life and shine to thinning or dull hair. We treat the scalp to stop hair loss on its tracks
