A CA­REER in the fit­ness in­dus­try and a pas­sion to im­prove peo­ple’s health is the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind Cock­burn cou­ple Ja­son and Stephanie Cor­reia’s busi­ness Re­cov­eri in Cock­burn Cen­tral.

The for­mer body­build­ing duo opened the cryother­apy and health es­tab­lish­ment late last year af­ter un­der­go­ing cryother­apy them­selves.

“A cou­ple of years ago when we were do­ing a body­build­ing comp, we were quite sore from train­ing,” Mrs Cor­reia said.

“We found one (a ma­chine) and started do­ing it and we just loved it.”

The ma­chine is set for three min­utes and can get as cold as -150 de­grees.

Ac­cord­ing to Mrs Cor­reia it helps treat arthri­tis and in­flam­ma­tion, re­duce stress, in­crease en­dor­phins and can burn up to 800 calo­ries.

“It was orig­i­nally in­vented to treat arthri­tis in the ’70s,” she said.

“We’ve had peo­ple feel less aches and pains, have more en­ergy and peo­ple feel like they’re on a nat­u­ral high be­cause it re­leases feel-good en­dor­phins.”

Mrs Cor­reia said as well as the whole body cryother­apy treat­ment, Re­cov­eri also con­ducted spot treat­ments and the Nor­maTec Pulse re­cov­ery sys­tem, which helped with the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of sports in­juries.

“We felt that there were so many gyms and fit­ness fa­cil­i­ties open­ing up but not enough places pro­mot­ing re­cov­ery,” Mrs Cor­reia said.
