-220° Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) has become an increasingly popular form of sports medicine and a safe and effective way used to treat medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. By exposing the entire body to subzero temperatures using liquid nitrogen, the body begins a natural nervous system response to the vital organs for a quicker recovery time. The health benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy enhance muscle recovery by reducing inflammation, improving pain management, and enhancing immune system & joint function. Whole Body Cryotherapy is also popular for mental health benefits by releasing endorphins primarily for increasing energy, getting better sleep, reducing psychological stress, providing relief for depression, and treating anxiety disorders. Doctors also recommend other forms of Cryotherapy for eliminating damaged or diseased tissues, accelerating cellular regeneration, and cellulite reduction using localized cryotherapy or cryotherapy facials.
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment is used by many athletes all over the world to relieve muscle soreness, increase blood circulation, reduce muscle pain, and to prevent sports injuries. The extreme cold temperatures of Cryotherapy provides athletes an alternative form of sports medicine and to ditch the the need of traditional cold therapy treatment such as ice pack, ice bath, or cold water immersion to treat injuries and reduce pain. During a Whole Body Cryo session the body temporarily constricts its blood vessels, and changes its perception of pain. Aside from preventing athletic injuries, reduced inflammation and reducing anxiety, Cryotherapy is also used to to increase athletic performance, improve recovery time between training and games, and help athletes stay healthy by boosting their immune system.

Normatec Compression Boots
These Normatec Compression Boots were not made for walking. Lay down, put your legs up, relax and enjoy some muscle therapy with the Normatec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System, as you say goodbye to muscle soreness and muscle fatigue. The compression therapy, which can either be for your legs and lower body or for your entire body, uses dynamic air compression to rejuvenate the muscles, increase mobility, provide pain relief, get that blood flow going, and help with soreness and recovery. It’s also the best foot massage you’ll ever have.
As you sit back and put your feet up, the Normatec Compression Boots will help you adopt healthy habits as you aid your body with a variety of functions, including faster recovery after a tough workout, improving flexibility, reducing inflammation, and increasing blood circulation. Yup, Normatec Compression Therapy is that good.
So, what is Normatec Compression Therapy?
The Normatec Pulse System, an innovative technology of dynamic air compression, provides your entire leg with a massage through phased pulses and pressure that mold the compression boots to your body. With a customizing control unit, Normatec Compression Therapy uses a sequential pulse technology that creates a patented massage pattern with varying intensity levels in different zones of your body to maximize your healthy blood circulation and extract lactic acid through the lymphatic vessels. The air compression starts at the feet, followed by the shins, all the way up to the quads. Such placement allows you to increase circulation and blood flow throughout the entire body system, which makes swelling and inflammation go down, thus providing pain relief and enhancing performance. The Normatec Compression Boots, which are leg attachments, also have attachment options for your hips and for your arms, to treat soreness throughout the entire body.
Who can benefit from Normatec Compression Therapy?
Normatec Compression Therapy can benefit everyone, from runners, bikers, and gym rats after leg day, to those working on their feet all day. Many athletes swear by compression therapy as a recovery method after intense training. Going too hard in the gym can actually sometimes hold you back as your muscles fatigue. The compression therapy will reduce recovery time and you’ll see improved performance, both of which can help keep you stay on track with your health goals and fitness needs. Comparable to compression socks, the Normatec 2.0 Full Body System provides a more enhanced compression therapy experience. Fluid movement is an important factor for a speedy muscle recovery, as poor circulation can cause fluid to build up in certain areas of the body. After putting pressure on the legs, lower body, or arms, our bodies tend to hold on to fluids, which cause soreness. The Normatec Compression Therapy uses compressed air to circulate the blood flow in and out of the heart and throughout the rest of the body. This not only speeds up recovery, but can also prevent injuries.
Ready to get started with your compression therapy and put on some Normatec boots? We got you.
Muscle Lab’s compression therapy sessions are 30 minutes long. In case you love the Normatec system and your stylish Normatec Compression Boots as much as we do, we also offer a monthly compression therapy membership to make enhanced recovery a regular part of your routine. So come on in, put your legs up, get your compression boots on, and take the pressure off. We’ll not only help you reduce muscle fatigue and soreness, but prevent it too. Your legs, hips, feet, and arms will thank you. We promise. Recovery starts here.

There are different types of cupping therapy treatments and cupping techniques. Fire cupping often involves using glass cups and applying heat from a fire source to remove oxygen and create suction on the skin. Fire cupping is a more advanced technique that requires a quick transfer of the heated glass cups to the body. Vacuum cupping is less invasive and offers more control in the amount of suction being applied. Typically, a pump is attached to plastic cups that draws air out and creates suction on the skin. Wet cupping is when the skin is pierced with a small needle before the cups are applied to allow the “toxic” blood to be pulled out of the body when suctioned. Wet cupping is a typical Chinese practice that seeks to removes negative energy from the body. However due to the lack of studied evidence, wet cupping therapy is not practiced at Muscle Lab.
As a form of alternative medicine, cupping therapy helps relieve pain and tension as it can promote healing. Clients who complain of chronic pain have seen dramatic relief and increased range of motion with cupping therapy. Cupping therapy is effective in managing arthritis, fibromyalgia, and pain from physical activity. The body naturally holds stress and tension within the joints and muscles. Cupping therapy is the optimal way to lower stress levels and tension that have accumulated in the body over time. Often, tension in the upper body and neck can lead to headaches and migraines, therefore it is best to treat the area before it becomes problematic. The effects of cupping therapy have been known to cause a general sense of relaxation and aid in managing anxiety and depression.
And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, cupping therapy has been known to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, due to the ability to create separation within the skin, tissues, and muscles. The suction technique allows cellulite (the dimpled fat just beneath the skin) to break up. The theory is that cupping promotes draining of accumulated fluids, toxins, and other chemical compounds from interstitial fluid to blood and lymphatic capillaries, especially the lipids in cellulite.
Book your cupping treatment at Muscle Lab today. We offer a Cupping Single Session; a monthly Unlimited Cupping Membership; and Cupping Packs that let you load up on cupping sessions for a discounted price (they never expire).
