For centuries, people have used natural remedies to enhance wellness and ward off illness. And over the last few decades, technologies have been developed to deliver health and well-being using the body’s natural processes: improving circulation, resolving inflammation, and more. These technologies are often expensive, inaccessible, or only offered after a clinical diagnosis.

If your mind, body, or both feel overworked and under-recovered, Reset by Therabody has a service for you.

The Science of Reset by Therabody Services

Reset by Therabody provides services for a whole-body wellness experience all in one place. Let’s dive into the science behind each service offered through Reset by Therabody. 
*Services vary by location

Theragun Massage and Whole-Body Stretch

Therabody Reset offers a unique service that combines massage with a Theragun percussion massager and assisted stretching. This multimodal approach leverages the benefits of both massage and stretching to provide an enhanced therapeutic experience.

The use of a Theragun device allows for a deep tissue massage that can increase blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and aid recovery. Meanwhile, assisted stretching performed by trained staff helps expand range of motion, improve flexibility, and relieve joint discomfort. The combination of massage and stretching works synergistically to help maximize mobility, flexibility, and overall well-being. Scientific research supports the benefits of massage and stretching individually. Combining these modalities, Therabody Reset can efficiently enhance the effects and provide an integrative experience focused on whole-body restoration and relaxation. [1, 2, 3, 4]

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Therabody Reset utilizes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to maximize oxygen delivery throughout the body for improved performance, recovery, inflammation, and even aging.

The air you breathe contains oxygen yet is combined with other pollutants and chemicals. In a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, the atmospheric pressure increases so that you inhale 95% pure oxygen — allowing the blood to absorb more oxygen than you normally do. [5, 6]

When you breathe in more oxygen, your blood oxygen saturation increases. And getting more oxygen to the tissues that need it can help the body heal faster. An increase in oxygen delivers various health benefits. It can help to reduce brain fog, expediting the body’s recovery, and even decreasing injury downtime. The additional oxygen also improves cell energy production, stimulating underperforming tissues and promoting longevity. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can also improve the body’s defense system, also known as the immune system. So, increased oxygen saturation enhances immune function and reduces inflammation. [7, 8, 9]

By incorporating this treatment, Therabody Reset offers an innovative way to boost your body’s oxygen for overall wellness, from performance enhancement, expedited recovery, immune-strengthening benefits, and proactively impacting your longevity. 


Reset by Therabody also offers cryotherapy — a freezing cold chamber with scientifically proven mind-body benefits. For up to four minutes, you can stand in a room with temperatures as cold as -170 degrees F. Cryotherapy can help improve energy levels and measures of performance and recovery, like flexibility, posture, soreness, and inflammation. 

This non-invasive treatment uses freezing temperatures to stimulate the body’s recovery processes. Cold treatments typically cause vasoconstriction, the narrowing of arteries that reduces blood flow — known to lower inflammation levels. [10, 11]

During the treatment, the brain senses the extreme temperature change in its environment and rapidly transfers heat. An increase in heat stimulates blood flow in the body and is known to elicit many health benefits. Stimulating blood flow can circulate oxygen and nutrient-rich blood and reduce waste products that help to reduce muscle soreness. [12]

These cold temperatures can also release norepinephrine, a hormone that activates the body’s “fight-or-flight" response. This can actually make people feel more focused, improve mood, and increase attention span. Cryotherapy has also been shown to improve both objective and subjective sleep measures, potentially through its ability to reduce pain. And with 1 in 3 adults in the US failing to get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep, cryotherapy can serve as a useful sleep tool. [13, 14]

So, no matter your health goals, you can likely benefit from cryotherapy. 

Whole Body Red Light Therapy

Another service offered at Reset by Therabody is Whole Body Red Light Therapy. You may have seen red light therapy products by Therabody, like the TheraFace PRO, TheraFace Mask, and the Theragun PRO Plus. Whole body red light therapy uses red light technology but applies it to the entire body (rather than a specific treatment area like the face). 

Red light penetrates below the skin to elicit health benefits. Red light produces biochemical reactions in the cells, affecting mitochondria (the “powerhouse of the cell"). The cell’s mitochondria consume red light and use it to create energy.

Increased energy can be used for reparative processes like in damaged muscle tissue following exercise. [15, 16, 17]

Sound Therapy

Therabody Reset’s Sound Therapy is experienced through the Lounger — a chair technology that uses binaural beats and vibroacoustic therapy for mental and physical benefits. When you use the Lounger, you’ll feel a beat pattern that aligns with auditory musical tracks played for a mind and body experience. 

Binaural beats are an auditory illusion created by playing slightly different frequencies in each ear, which leads to neural entrainment and shifts in brainwave states. The curated binaural beat tracks boost concentration, enhance your creativity, and help you enter a meditative state. [18]

When wearing earphones playing slightly different frequencies in each ear, the brain perceives its feeling as a pulse called a ‘beat.’ This synchronization creates brain waves that can deliver benefits like concentration and creativity.

Sound therapy also delivers physical benefits called vibroacoustic therapy, the physical vibrations produced from sound. The body’s response to vibration is categorized into three types: hemodynamic (stimulation of blood flow), neurological (the brain and nervous system), and musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints). Vibroacoustic stimuli can produce numerous physical benefits like pain reduction and even create exercise-like effects. [19]
