Cryotherapy FAQ

What is cryotherapy? 
  • Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness. It dates back to ancient civilizations. Whole body cryotherapy is the modern application and stimulates the same rejuvenation at a whole new level of cold — in just two-three minutes.​

Is cryotherapy safe?
  • Yes! The nitrogen gas is non-toxic and does not come in contact with the skin. The door does not lock, allowing the user to end the treatment whenever they wish. You will be accompanied by a cryosauna technician through the entire session.

Should I do cryotherapy before or after exercise?
  • Participants who utilize cryotherapy before exercise claim they experience increased energy, endurance, and flexibility. Participants who utilize cryotherapy after exercise claim they experience faster rejuvenation.

What should I wear during cryotherapy session?
  • All clients will enter and exit their session in a robe, gloves, socks and slippers, all provided by the staff. 

  • Men must wear something underneath the robe(boxers, shorts, briefs etc.). Women may wear a bra and underwear. Women may also wear a sports bra and athletic shorts. No underwire bras should be worn in the sauna.

How often should I do cryotherapy?
  • Participants report they experience benefits after 3-5 consecutive cryotherapy sessions. Many participants find that to maintain these benefits, they need to do cryotherapy 2-3 times a week. We recommend clients participate in consistent cryotherapy sessions to receive the maximum benefits. Training athletes may feel they want to use whole body cryotherapy sessions daily for recovery purposes.  

How should I feel during and after my sessions?
  • During a cryotherapy session, participants feel a dry cold.Many clients report feeling a sense of calm or rejuvenation after their session. Others report feelings of euphoria and/or energy.

Why do people enjoy cryotherapy?
  • Survey results indicate many cryotherapy participants use cryotherapy for pain management, workout recovery, mental well-being and weight management.

  • Whole body cryotherapy is an excellent complement to existing health and wellness initiatives.

Who cannot use cryotherapy?
  • Anyone with the following conditions should not participate:

  • Uncontrolled high-blood pressure

  • Pregnancy

  • Raynaud’s Syndrome

  • Allergy to cold

  • Prior heart attack

  • Unstable heart pain

  • Disease of the blood vessels

  • History of blood cots

  • Uncontrolled seizure disorder

  • Nerve pain in feet and legs

  • Open sores

  • Any disease or condition with increased sensitivity to cold

How does cryotherapy compare to an ice bath?
  • Whole body cryotherapy treatments result is a very different response from the body.   Three minutes of extreme, dry cold reaches only the top skin layers and receptors by 30 to 50 degrees, causing the brain to restrict blood flow to an internal cycle.  Whole body cryotherapy causes the body to release anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins resulting in oxygenated blood.  In an ice bath, fifteen minutes of cold water causes the body to move blood to the extremities and results in a lowered core body temperature. Ice baths do no oxygenate the blood.
