ABOUT

Cryotherapy is the body’s exposure to subzero temperatures used to promote a natural anti-inflammatory response, release endorphins, reduce pain and spasms, boost cellular survival, and promote overall health. Cryotherapy is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative for individuals seeking a faster recovery and improved health.

Step into our Cryosauna and experience the benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy. In just a two-to-three minute session your body is exposed to ultra low temperatures (-200 to -240F) through the use of liquid nitrogen vapor, lowering the skin’s surface temperature by 30-50 degrees and activating the body’s natural fight-or-flight response. This cold sensation stimulates the skin’s receptors to constrict the blood vessels and rush blood back to the body’s core where it is oxygenated and enriched. Upon exiting the Cryosauna, your blood vessels will dilate and rush supercharged blood full of anti-inflammatory proteins, endorphins and oxygen throughout your body. This process accelerates the rate of tissue repair and reduces inflammation, while boosting the body’s metabolic rate resulting in a residual weight loss of 500-800 calories in the 5 hours post session.

While a whole body cryotherapy session last just 2 to 3 minutes, the benefits far exceed hours of a traditional ice bath. Furthermore, the cold experienced in the Cryosauna affects only the skin temperature, 1/2 millimeter deep, and does not reduce the body’s internal temperature or freeze tissue.

Before entering the Cryosauna, clients are required to remove all jewelry. They will be given gloves, socks, slippers and a robe to wear to the treatment room. Men are also required to wear underwear or shorts.

Frequently asked questions

Is cryotherapy safe?

Single person and multi-person walk-in cryochambers have been used for almost 40 years. Problems only arise if a client steps into the machine with wet clothing, especially wet socks, as water will freeze immediately at these temperatures. The nitrogen being used to cool these chambers is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (actually 78% of it).  In either type of chamber, the client breathes room-air. For added safety, chambers are also equipped with an oxygen monitor.  In order to protect the more temperature sensitive tissues such as hands and feet, clients wear dry socks, slippers, and gloves, which we provide.

Is the cryotherapy chamber comfortable?

Before entering the cryochamber, clients are required to dress in protective clothing composed of cotton socks, cotton underwear (for men), and gloves. The treatment is of short duration (2-3 minutes), and the cold is "dry", so it is very tolerable.  Towards the end of the treatment, you may get a "pins and needles" type of sensation, which disappears immediately after the treatment.

How do I feel after the treatment?

Our clients report that after each session, they feel good and energetic.

How many treatments should I do?

A typical course is 5-10 treatments in close succession (separated by 1-2 days --- e.g. 3x/week. After that you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve results (e.g. once every week or two weeks).

Can I catch a cold because of this procedure?

No. The immediate cold impact of the Cryosession will raise the internal body temperature for a short period of time.

Can I use whole body cryotherapy if I am claustrophobic?

Yes, you may. The door is never locked and you may step out at any moment. The session is continually monitored by a trained technician.

Do I have to take a shower before or after cryotherapy?

No, you don't. This procedure is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet. 

Who should not use whole body cryotherapy?

The following conditions are contraindications to whole body cryotherapy: Pregnancy, severe Hypertension (BP> 180/100), acute or recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, arrhythmia, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, cardiac pacemaker, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, venous thrombosis, acute or recent cerebrovascular accident, uncontrolled seizures, Raynaud’s Syndrome, fever, tumor disease, symptomatic lung disorders, bleeding disorders, severe anemia, infection, claustrophobia, cold allergy, age less than 18 years (parental consent to treatment needed), acute kidney and urinary tract diseases.

What are the risks of whole body cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryohtherapy is very well tolerated, fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure can change by 10 points (this effect reverses after the end of the procedure, as peripheral circulation returns to normal), allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), claustrophobia, redness, and skin burns (only if exposed to low temperatures longer than recommended) have been reported.
