Cryotherapy Specialist
Recently Anna became interested and gained knowledge and specialist expertise in Cryotherapy, which has been growing in popularity internationally and is proving to be a highly effective means of treating many conditions. Having benefitted from Cryotherapy herself, she has gained a new sense of passion to introduce the Cryotherapy in England.

She believes that over time, people will increasingly recognise the range of cryotherapy benefits and its healing abilities.

At Sutherland House, she will be introducing local cryotherapy as an effective treatment for back and neck pain, shoulder, elbow and wrist pains, knee and hip pains, ankle injuries, soft tissue injuries as well as ligament and tendon problems. Local cryotherapy also helps with managing pain in rheumatoid diseases, muscle soreness, spasms, inflammation and swelling. In beauty and dermatology it is affective with cellulite reduction as well as reducing psoriasis.
