Westchester residents can enjoy the benefits of the first cryotherapy center in the area. Nordic Cryotherapy opens Wednesday at 31 Mill Road in Eastchester. The center offers whole body cryotherapy as well as localized treatments.
Some of the ailments for which people use cryotherapy include rheumatology, orthopedic conditions, joint pain, athletic recovery, and reducing inflammation.
The center’s founder, Marie O’Connor, is a registered nurse in New York and Connecticut. She received her doctorate degree in nursing from Sacred Heart University and her master's in nursing administration from Kaplan University.
O'Connor most recently worked at Stamford and White Plains Hospitals, and as a care consultant for Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield.
“When I researched the benefits of cryotherapy I knew I wanted to be able to offer the services to people in this area particularly because there isn’t any other facility nearby. I have seen and experienced the benefits firsthand and know how great people feel after the short but effective treatment,” she said.
Connor is a resident of Yonkers. She is a member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses and the American Nurses Association.
Nordic Cryotherapy will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
A ribbon cutting rand opening ceremony is set for Friday, June 17 from 5 to 9 p.m., where visitors can see the facility and a demonstratin of the body and localized cryotherapy treatments.
O’Connor will on hand to explain the process further.
Refreshments will be available at the event.
