District Cryo, Whole Body Cryotherapy Lab, Partners with MightyMeals Meal Prep in Washington, D.C.

By Christine Bean

This week, we sat down with MightyMeals partner, District Cryo, to learn more about the unique healing services they offer and how MightyMeals helps their clients make healthy and stress-free meal choices. 

What is District Cryo all about?
District Cryo: District Cryo is the first whole body cryotherapy recovery and rejuvenation lab in Washington, D.C. We currently have two locations. One in Alexandria, VA, and the other is in Shaw, Mount Vernon, in D.C. Our third location in Georgetown is opening soon. Basically, we help clients heal better. Most of our clients come to us suffering from chronic inflammation and are referred to us by their rheumatologist. Many are suffering from lupus, Lymes disease, M.S., rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s, or other autoimmune diseases. We don’t diagnose or cure, we follow a protocol for each client based on what their doctors tell us. Our clients often suffer from gut, skin, or joint issues, and cryotherapy will give them temporary relief from their symptoms. We have a wide range of clients, some of whom are athletes or politicians who lead stressful lives. It’s not one size fits all, every client undergoes a different type of session and we have specific techniques to help figure out what the problem is and how best to provide them relief. 
What happens during a Cryo session?
District Cryo: Each cryo session is three minutes long. Clients wear gloves, shoes and socks. Men and women can get undressed or be dressed to a certain comfort level. Before each client enters the cryo chamber, we establish why they’re going in. They will feel some relief or total relief in a certain area upon completion. Afterwards, we ask the client how the particular area feels, and 9 times out of 10 they say they feel nothing, which is the exact goal. Our clients come to us year-round. Some come in 5-7 times per week, it depends on their situation.  Clients ask us how often they should come in and we ask them how often they want to come in.  We don’t want to add any additional stress to their lives. However, 90% of our clients come in multiple times per week. 

What other services do you offer?
District Cryo: Our Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna is a huge part of our business. Sweating is your body’s natural way of staying healthy. Our Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas are designed to give you a very relaxing and detoxifying experience through the use of infrared heat therapy. Unlike a regular sauna, Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas penetrate through the skin and through the organs, pushing water out and producing a clean sweat, almost like distilled water. Many clients are referred to us by their doctors suffering from symptoms caused by toxic mold or heavy metals. Some clients do cryo and the sauna in one day, but we don’t recommend that during their first few sessions. We want them to become experts in what one particular service is doing to affect their bodies.
Why would you recommend MightyMeals to your clients?
District Cryo: Recently, we’ve been working with a registered dietician, Kylie Kain, RD, to further understand how nutrition plays a part in healing. Kylie put our staff on a specific macro diet, and at that point we found that MightyMeals was the easiest way to be able to choose macros and calories while still having a delicious meal. We are very impressed with the ease of ordering and the taste of the food, and we love supporting a fellow small business. We look forward to recommending MightyMeals to our clients to take one less thing off their plate while also encouraging them to make healthy food choices that will aid in their healing and overall wellness.
