Recoveri cryotherapy in Cockburn helps kick extra weight and heal sports injuries

A CAREER in the fitness industry and a passion to improve people’s health is the inspiration behind Cockburn couple Jason and Stephanie Correia’s wellness business Recoveri in Cockburn Central.

The former bodybuilding duo that opened the cryotherapy and health establishment late last year, said they discovered the benefits of cryotherapy after doing it themselves when they were preparing for competitions.

“A couple of years ago when we were doing a bodybuilding comp, we were quite sore from training,” Mrs Correia said.

“We found one (a machine) and started doing it and we just loved it.”

The machine, which is set for three minutes and can get as cold as -150 degrees, according to Mrs Correia helps treat arthritis, inflammation, reduce stress, and increase endorphins also has anti-ageing benefits and is known to burn up to 800 calories.

“It was originally invented to treat arthritis in the 70s,” she said.

“We’ve had people feel less aches and pains, have more energy and people feel like they’re on a natural high because it releases feel-good endorphins.”

Mrs Correia said as well as the whole body cryotherapy treatment, Recoveri also conducted spot treatments and the NormaTec Pulse recovery system, which helped with the rehabilitation of sports injuries.

“We felt that there were so many gyms and fitness facilities opening up but not enough places promoting recovery,” Mrs Correia said.

“We truly believe this is the future of recovery and healing, and also a chance to make a difference.”
