Cryochamber

Embrace the Cold

Cryotherapy is a ground-breaking treatment, popular with celebs and top athletes—part of a futuristic new era in health and wellness.

Here, at the Glass House in Essex, you can experience it for yourself.

Its uses are diverse, from soothing muscular injuries and aiding weight loss, to enhancing beauty, combating the signs of ageing, and improving overall wellness.

When your body is exposed to intense cold, remarkable things happen—including cellular regeneration, heightened oxygen absorption, and fat burning.
