1Who would benefit from cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy has been found to help those with chronic and acute inflammation, fatigue, muscle soreness, decreased joint pain and disorders, anxiety and depression. Whole body cryotherapy is also extensively used in self-treatment or body hardening against respiratory tract infections and musculoskeletal pain.
2What should I expect during a session?
Each session is monitored and administered by a trained recovery technician. The technician working with you during your particular session will lead you to our private cryotherapy room where you will be given instructions prior to entering the chamber. Once ready, a technician will lead you through the treatment, while also monitoring the session. While you are inside the chamber for a maximum of 3 minutes, the entire appointment will last nearly 10 minutes to give ample time to enjoy your experience.
3What do I wear during each session?
While using the cryothamber, you will only be wearing socks, slippers and gloves; men also wear underwear. The slippers and gloves are provided to you during your session. The reason for this is to expose an appropriate amount of skin to the cold air. If you are wearing lotion, please do not apply within an hour of your session.
4Are there limitations or restrictions to using cryotherapy?
There are some contraindications including pregnancy, heart disease, uncontrolled seizures, uncontrolled blood pressure, Raynaud's syndrome, allergic reactions to extreme cold, active fever and more. No one under the age of 14 is permitted to use the chamber unless directed by a doctor. A screening process is done, including a blood pressure reading, prior to entering the chamber. If you have any questions, please contact us.
5How often should I use cryotherapy?
Depending on the condition of treatment, you should initially take 5-10 treatments in close succession to maximize your results. After that, you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results.
6Do I need an appointment?
We encourage you to make an appointment to guarantee availability. However, walk-in times may be available depending on the day.
