We are The Frost Club at The Hormone Center, an integrative medical practice based in Pittsburgh, Pa. We believe, that from an evolutionary standpoint, the human body is programmed to repair itself. Our job is to remove the obstacles and clear the path for the body to recover. The center has been in operation since 2009, with The Frost Club coming as its newest addition. Our Impact cryoasauna is in our South Side office, minutes from downtown, uptown and Oakland.

Tell me about your goals/vision for your business.

Whole body cryotherapy fits perfectly with the core values of The Hormone Center. We trend toward the least invasive procedures and treatments necessary to treat the causes of disease, not only the symptoms. Whole body cryotherapy is certainly non-invasive treatment. Many of our fibromyalgia patients claim it helps for pain relief. Our cryotherapy clientele includes athletes of all levels, individuals recovering from an injury or surgery, chronic pain and inflammation sufferers, as well as some proactive wellness clients.

Why the decision to add cryotherapy?

We see The Frost Club growing in conjunction with The Hormone Center. We believe in holistic treatment methods, nutrition and food choices are key, and outside agents we expose our bodies to impact on our health. Seeing the two grow with each other is easy to picture.

Why did you decide to partner with Impact Cryotherapy?

We partnered with Impact Cryotherapy for a few reasons:

  1. Impact designs and manufactures the most technologically advanced cryosaunas in the USA.
  2. They have all the proper safety measures in place.
  3. Plainly put, they are the ‘Cadillac’ of cryotherapy saunas.
How has cryotherapy been received by customers?

Cryotherapy has been very well received and it’s sparked much interest and conversation by patients who see the machine in action. It certainly generates a buzz whenever patients see the hardware in action.

How do you promote the cryotherapy?

To promote cryotherapy, we utilize our online presence, have done some “boots on the ground” campaigning, and forged relationships with local CrossFit gyms and businesses like them. Our next step will be to partner with online influencers in the area to build up The Frost Club brand.

Why do your clients utilize cryotherapy?

Our clients utilize cryotherapy for a variety of reasons. Some find us organically when looking for cryotherapy, while others come from our existing patient base, using it for various reasons. In all cases, however, our clients grow to really love the experience. They even say they feel addicted because they love that it’s only three minutes, how cold it gets and how much better they feel from doing it.

We have seen multiple success stories. One of the easiest to relate to is a lady who tore her ACL skiing. She did cryotherapy for two weeks prior to her surgery, then continued as soon as she could after surgery. She is now eight weeks out. Already, she has regained her full range of motion.
