Cryotherapy is a hot topic with celebrities, especially celebrity athletes. As a recent Today show story notes, the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Steph Curry, LeBron James and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump are all fans of the icy-cold therapy, which immerses clients into a sub-zero chamber for a few minutes to ease recovery from sports injuries and soothe muscle pain. Some proponents even tout its benefits for anxiety and youthful skin.
That likely explains why searches for "cryotherapy" in the Denver area have soared 110% over the past year, according to Google Trends data. So where can you try this trendy therapy for yourself?

Cryosauna Session at Denver Sports Recovery
2242 W. 29th Ave., Highlands
Denver Sports Recovery touts its 30-minute "cryosauna" sessions as ideal for "those looking to recover after a sports injury, reduce chronic pain and inflammation, and boost overall health and wellness."
Sessions are offered multiple times every day, but be aware, 5 p.m. and later are peak times, so booking might be trickier, according to ClassPass data. The spa provides all the clothes and gear you’ll need.
The city’s Yelpers give Denver Sports Recovery positive ratings, with 88% of its 17 reviews coming in at five stars.
In June, reviewer Alexandra B. wrote, “I highly recommend this place to any athlete in Denver — one stop shop for total body care!”
Some reviewers had issues with other parts of the facility. Yelper Matt C. noted in February that "the hot tub can be very dirty (and even smelly), and towels are often not available.”
