All whole body cryotherapy sessions are conducted by one of our highly trained staff who remains with you for the duration of your session. Inside the cryochamber you will only be wearing socks, slippers and gloves; men also wear briefs. This allows for 90% of your skin to be exposed to the hyper cool air. It is fine to leave your hair down and have on face lotion or makeup. We ask that you do not apply lotion or any moisture to your skin an hour before your session.
The Criomed Cryochamber is a single-person chamber used for individual sessions of Whole Body Cryotherapy. During a session, clients wear minimal protective clothing (gloves, socks, and briefs). The temperature is regulated by the automated system but can also be adjusted within a range of -166°F to -320°F by the operating technician via keypad or optional touchscreen control panel. The recommended session temperature is -260°F for 2-3 minutes.
What are the benefits?
Some of the many benefits of cryotherapy include decreasing muscle soreness, decreasing pain, reducing swelling and inflammation, increasing range of motion, improving sleep, boosting energy, accelerating metabolism, strengthening immune system, increasing endorphins, mitigating anxiety and depression, reducing signs of aging, improving skin, and relieving joint disorders, rheumatoid diseases and fibromyalgia.
How does it work?
Essentially, cryotherapy treatment forces your body to rapidly heal itself. These reactions include raising your endorphins, speeding the growth of new connective tissue and speeding up your metabolism.
What are the treatment options?
During a typical whole body cryotherapy treatment, you stand in a cylindrical chamber that fills with nitrogen vapor dropping to sub zero temperatures of (minus) -180 to -220 degrees F. One treatment lasts approximately 3 minutes.
