Clifton Park residents will soon be able to cool down with cryotherapy, with the opening of iCryo slated for late March in the Clifton Park Center Mall area.
iCryo will open its doors for business on March 30, according to a press release from franchise owner Aric Lemon.
While the effects are similar to those of an ice bath, cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to cool the body down at a much faster rate. It’s meant to decrease inflammation, increase collagen production, burn calories and assist with pain management.
iCryo first opened its Latham location in 2018. It offers whole body cryotherapy, localized cryotherapy and cryotherapy facials, compression therapy and infrared sauna, as well as Cryoskin services for body slimming and toning. Whole body cryotherapy is a two to three minute session that focuses on decreasing inflammation in the entire body.
Lemon said the opening of the Clifton Park location will be "huge." Customers who utilize the Latham location who live in Clifton Park have been anticipating the new location because it'll be right down the road for most of them.
"We have members here who want us to be in Clifton Park because they live there. Being next door to Starbucks, it's going to be huge," he said.
iCRYO’s co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Kyle Jones, along with other members of the corporate team will be in attendance to celebrate the launch.
The business will host a grand opening event from 1 to 5 p.m. that day that will include complementary whole body cryotherapy services for the duration of the event.
Food will be provided by The Hideaway at Saratoga Lake Golf Club and the nearby CoreLife Eatery will provide a hydration bar.
The cost of cryotherapy treatments can vary. At iCryo, the cost is configured with passes, which not only give people access to the cryotherapy treatment as well as the infrared sauna and other amenities. On a national level, the full body treatments cost around $60 or $70.
In the next few years, Lemon plans to open three other locations in the Capital Region as well.
