“Essentially, we’ve known for hundreds of years that heat and cold therapy help people; people have taken Turkish baths, bathed in hot springs, and have done cold plunges. It’s just that now we can maximize those health benefits in a faster, more controlled method,” said Thomas Kanyok, who along with partner J. J. Durant have opened two Restore Hyper Wellness locations in the North Hills. The Cranberry Twp. location opened in April 2022, and the McCandless Crossing location opened in August 2022, and both centers focus on nine elements of hyper wellness—oxygen, hydration, cold, heat, nourishment, rest, light, movement and connection.
Restore Hyper Wellness offers different modalities that support each of these elements. For example, humans can’t live without oxygen and at Restore Hyper Wellness, their Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber can enhance the body's natural healing processes and may optimize sleep, speed up athletic recovery, repair muscles and boost cognitive clarity.
“Athletes have known for some time that hyperbaric oxygen treatment speeds up healing. In fact, Steeler Hines Ward slept in a hyperbaric chamber when he sprained a knee during the AFC Championship game so that he would be ready for Super Bowl XLIII,” said Kanyok. “But we’ve made hyperbaric oxygen therapy affordable and convenient,” said Kanyok.
Restore Hyper Wellness also offers Cryotherapy, Red Light Therapy, Infrared Sauna and Compression Therapy as well as specialty services such as Cryoskin, which is a non-invasive cosmetic service that promotes a slimmer, more toned appearance to the skin, and NAD + IV Therapy. NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. “Unfortunately, as we age, we don’t have as much NAD in our system,” said Kanyok, “and by dripping it into the blood stream, it helps to repair and revitalize our bodies. We have clients say that the only way they could describe the results is that their greens seemed greener, and their blues seemed bluer. Everything was enhanced.”
Restore Hyper Wellness was founded in 2015 in Austin, Texas, by two triathletes and the franchise has grown by leaps and bounds. It offers free consultations and has a registered nurse on staff with access to Telemed doctors or nurse practitioners to make sure that Restore Hyper Wellness’s therapies are right for you.
“It’s gratifying to see clients experiencing amazing results. One woman came in who was suffering terribly with Lyme disease. Nothing was helping and now she has her health back and has brought her parents and well as an uncle in to take advantage of our services,” said Kanyok, who encourages anyone who wants to optimize their health to schedule a consultation. They offer several different levels of membership.
