WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
Made popular by athletes everywhere, whole body cryotherapy is a natural, holistic solution for total body wellness and recovery. During cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures triggering the human body’s most powerful mechanisms to recover and rejuvenate itself naturally. Step into our nitrogen gas cryotherapy chamber for an invigorating 3-minute treatment and the body will release endorphins for an immediate energy boost; helping to alleviate chronic pain and inflammation, spike mood and metabolism levels, and naturally recover from injury.

Frequently Asked Questions about Whole Body Cryotherapy
How does it work?
Upon entering the cryo chamber, you have the freedom to stand still or slowly turn while nitrogen gas fills the chamber. Within 2-3 minutes, your skin surface temperature will lower to approximately 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This sudden drop in temperature triggers your skin’s cold receptors to activate your body’s most powerful survival mechanisms. A release of endorphins and a rapid circulation of oxygen-rich blood rushes throughout your body.
Is it safe?
Yes. Single person cryo chambers have been used for the past 30+ years without any severe adverse reaction ever recorded. Problems have only arisen if a client steps into the machine with wet clothing, as water will freeze immediately at these temperatures. The nitrogen used to cool the chamber is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (actually 78% of it). Upon stepping into the chamber, the operator raises the platform that the client is standing on so their head is above the heavier nitrogen vapors. Here, the client breathes normal 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 are provided dry socks, slippers, and gloves.
Is it comfortable?
Before entering the cryo chamber, clients are required to dress in protective clothing: 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 experience a ‘pins and needles’ sensation, which disappears immediately after the treatment.
How do I feel after the treatment?
During each cryo session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days.
How soon should I expect results?
You’ll feel great right away! After your first treatment you’ll experience the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that will last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days. Changes in skin texture and reduction in cellulite and weight loss will take longer to see results and may require a series of treatments for maximum results.
How many treatments should I do?
You should initially take 5-10 treatments in close succession to maximize your results (minimum 3 days in a row). After that, you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results.
Can I catch a cold because of this treatment?
No. The immediate cold impact of the cryotherapy session will raise the internal body temperature for a short period of time. The stimulation of the immune system can actually help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.
Who should NOT do 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 Cryotherapy is very well tolerated and has minimal risks: Fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure by up to 10 points systolically (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).
