About NRS Therapy

NRS Therapy with CRYOFOS unlocks the body’s innate capacity to overcome pain and heal itself.

Neuro Reflex Stimulation (NRS) uses hyperbaric medical CO2 gas to apply gentle pressure while delivering intense cold therapy. Drastic and abrupt reduction in the surface temperature of the skin causes a “Thermal Shock” that, when combined with the pressure from the gas, produces a variety of beneficial physiological effects using the body’s own resources to combat pain and promote healing.

SENSORY RECEPTORS OF SKIN

Besides pain, our skin responds most efficiently to sensations
of pressure and cold.

Thermal Shock : The Catalyst

The abrupt and drastic lowering of the skin’s surface temperature is called a Thermal Shock.

CRYOFOS delivers intense cold therapy using medical CO2 gas. From its pressurized, liquid state in the cylinder, the gas emerges from the nozzle of the treatment gun as a fine spray hitting the skin at a temperature of -78° C and cooling the treated area to between 2° C and 4° C in under 30 seconds. This abrupt and drastic temperature change, called a Thermal Shock, triggers a neuro-reflexive response in the body.

The stream of gas from the CRYOFOS treatment gun also applies up to 2 bars of pressure to the treatment area. The combination of this pressure and the Thermal Shock is the key to NRS Therapy.
