Why You Should Choose Thorntonhall Cryo
For over 20 years, I have been running a successful, specialised, skincare treatment business Thorntonhall Therapies. I am also a sports masseuse and a qualified Power Plate and Gyrotonic trainer.
I use the latest, top of the range “Cryo Penguin” machine achieving temperatures of -160c. No other Cryotherapy machine is able to achieve these low temperatures required to make the cryo stimulation process at its most effective.
Set in a rural location Thorntonhall Cryo is only 8 miles from Glasgow city centre. It is easily accessible by road and rail and offers secure off-road parking and a private post-treatment stretching area.
Thorntonhall Cryo is a luxurious, custom-designed, and modern clinic. I regularly attend training courses and keep myself and my treatment processes current and within the guidelines and practices set by industry standards.
