At the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, one cannot miss the rare and unique Cryotherapy treatment. Clinically proven to have marked effects for anti-aging, detoxification and circulation for the body, the cryotherapy treatment brings guests through a 3-minute intense cold session, with extremely low temperatures!


Cryotherapy has existed since antiquity, but it is only since the 1970s that the application of cold ice, or cold spray, began to interest scientists. The Japanese were the first to develop a scientific methodology to evaluate the results obtained by the lowering of skin temperature. It was Japanese Rheumatologist Dr. Yamaguchi who developed the cryotherapy chamber in 1978, thanks to the injection of nitrogenated air.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo, Daniel Craig or Demi Moore have adopted it, the method has been on the buzz. This technique works miracles, including losing weight without effort!

The principle? To expose the body at a temperature between -110°C and -196°C for 2 to 3 minutes. The treatment causes a survival reaction: your body fights against the cold therefore you exhaust a lot of energy and you can lose up to 800 calories in three minutes! The brain controls the secretion of anti-inflammatory molecules and endorphins, your blood is oxygenated, your mind improves and your physical energy redoubles.

Hence the interest of whole body cryotherapy for athletes, for people with jet lag fatigue, but also people under stress or suffering from fibromyalgia, rheumatic diseases … And for beauty’s sake, collagen production is stimulated and bodily toxins are eliminated. So, your skin rejuvenates at once: you get out of the session with better looks and softer wrinkles!


Previously reserved for athletes’ recovery treatments and performance improvement, cryotherapy in Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo is now available for everyone to enjoy for less than 60 Euros per session. Firstly, the guest strips down to his swimsuit, puts on the provided earmuffs and facemask. Then a detailed briefing by the coach clarifies the expectations of the treatment. Secondly, the guest enters the room at – 56°C, a conditioning temperature for the body. 10 seconds later, the guest pushes the door into the second cabin at -110°C for 3 whole minutes! The whole process is carefully supervised by the coach hence it is entirely safe.

Just 3 minutes to feeling rejuvenated and glamorous all over again: you will want to try it for yourself!
