Cryotherapy FAQs

What if I am often cold or get cold easily?

Since the cold from WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY only penetrates the surface of the skin, you will only experience a slight chill. Cryotherapy improves circulation throughout the body and stimulates production of brown fat, so your future ability to tolerate cold should improve.

How do I feel after a session?

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY stimulates the body to release endorphins, the hormones that make us feel alert and energetic.  The buoyant effects from each session  typically  last  for  six  to   eight  hours. Many clients. report improvements in their sleep quality after cryotherapy.

Can I catch a cold from Whole Body Cryotherapy?

No. The immediate cold impact of the cryotherapy will raise the internal body temperature for a brief period. The stimulation of the immune system can help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.

I am claustrophobic, can I use Whole Body Cryotherapy?

Yes. Your entire head remains exposed to the room and above the Cryosauna. The door cannot lock and the staff member is there through the entire process until the session has ended.

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

Showering is not necessary before or after cryotherapy. The entire procedure is dry and does not make your skin wet. Many clients come by during their lunch break since the entire treatment is only 3 minutes long. We can accommodate your specific scheduling request.

How many treatments are needed to achieve optimal results?

Depending upon the condition being treated, it should initially take five to ten treatments in close succession (every other day). After this initial loading period, maintenance treatments should be at least once per week.
