The New Recovery (iCRYO Recovery & Wellness)

How do you recover from tennis or other sports? Have you ever tried cryotherapy?

We are thrilled to talk with Matt Pepe! Matt is the owner and operator of iCRYO Recovery & Wellness centers. Matt found out about our show from our friends at the Abilities Tennis Association of North Carolina (ATANC). He attended their Footprints on the Court fundraiser and made a generious donation to be a guest on Second Serve. We are excited to have Matt tell his story about wellness and recovery for adult recreational tennis players.

A Passion for Sports and Entrepreneurship

Matt operates two ICRYO health and wellness centers (one in Raleigh in the North Hills District and one in Cary at the Waverly Place Shopping Plaza). He received his Masters in Sports Medicine and was an athletic trainer at Seton Hall University. That naturally led him to combine his love of sports with his passion for entrepreneurship. He is now helping athletes and non-athletes meet their health needs.

Matt says most clients seek out cryotherapy for these main issues:

  • Sports and Performance
  • Pain and Inflammation
  • Beauty and Esthetics
  • General Wellness

Tennis Players — Try Cryotherapy for Recovery and Overall Wellness

For sports and performance, cryotherapy helps your body limit the amount of inflammation it’s creating and speeds up the recovery process. Cryotherapy keeps you active and playing tennis longer! That’s why we believe in cryotherapy for tennis players.
