What To Expect

     The hyper-cool air part of a cryotherapy session is no longer than three minutes long. The entire session usually takes around 10-15 minutes overall. One of our technicians will conduct your session while talking you through the process and stay with you during the session.
     Inside the cryo-chamber, you are required to wear socks, slippers, gloves, and underwear. Other clothes are optional. If you feel more comfortable wearing a bra, it must be a sports bra because metal wires and clasps are not allowed. The more exposed skin, the more likely you will feel the effects of cryotherapy. Ideally, at least 85% of your skin is exposed. We ask that you do not apply lotion or moisture to your skin an hour before the session. Jewelry and metals are prohibited below your chin.
     You will fill out a general waiver and have your blood pressure tested. Please check with your doctor if you have any medical concerns; or ask one of our trained technicians. If your blood pressure reading is above 160, you will not be allowed to do the session.
     Additionally, we will respect your privacy. Our technician will step out of the room while you change into the required clothing. Once you have entered the chamber and closed the door, you will be able to ring a bell to alert the technician that you are ready to start the session.
CryoTherapy Sessions

Whole-Body Cryotherapy vs. Ice Bath

     Whole-body cryotherapy is not just a faster version of an ice bath. The body’s reaction to an ice bath is very different from its reaction to cryotherapy. The main difference between ice baths and cryotherapy is the temperature of the environment and the skin surface.
     The temperature of an ice bath is low as 45°F (7°C), while the temperature in a cryo-chamber reaches -321°F (-196°C). Because of this, the skin surface temperature during an ice bath can only reach 41°F (5°C); while the skin temperature during a cryotherapy session can be as low as 30°F (-1°C). Additionally, ice baths are a wet, lengthly, and occasionally painful experience, the opposite of cryotherapy.
     During an ice bath, body tissue freezes, and muscles temporarily lose capacity. Muscle tissues then need time to return to normal, which requires rest. Therefore ice baths need to be scheduled at the end of a workout since recovery takes place overnight. In contrast, the cryosauna does not freeze muscle tissue. Accordingly, you can schedule a cryotherapy session before or after a workout.
     Lastly, the skin’s oxygen supply is interrupted during an ice bath, which can damage your skin or promote bacterial infections. Cryotherapy prevents these risks by using cold, dry air; while the skin’s oxygen supply is not interrupted.
