1. Do I need to wear anything specific to my appointment?
No! We provide freshly cleaned socks, robes and gloves. We also provide slippers! Men must wear underwear so that's the only thing to keep in mind!
2. Is Whole Body Cryotherapy safe?
Yes! Cryotherapy uses cold air that is cooled by liquid nitrogen but your skin is never in contact with the liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen makes up 78% of the air we breath. The CryoSense (the machine we have) has a safety monitor installed so if the air ever becomes an unsafe level, the machine will shut off and the fan will kick on.
3. Is there anyone that shouldn't use Cryotherapy?
Pregnant, fever, open wound, severe hypertension, heart or cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, pacemaker, seizures, skin infections, under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, UTI, severe anemia, Raynaud's, Polyneuropathy.
4. What if I'm claustrophobic?
I am! Your head is out of the chamber the entire time (Pictured) and if you feel uneasy at anytime, we can stop the session and the door does not lock so you could actually push your way out!
5. Can I work out before or after a Cryotherapy session?
Absolutely! Athletes commonly use them before as well as after workouts. Before will increase you energy and blood flow, after is more of a recovery.
6. How will I feel after a Cryotherapy session?
Invigorated! Your skin will feel cold and slightly red but will return to normal temperature within minutes. You may feel a boost in your mood and energy level. People often sleep better that night as well. If have minor aches and pains, they should feel better immediately. If you have been training hard and have hot and cold chills, your temperature gauge should be reset. We recommend additional sessions for maximum results, preferably 3 within 7 days before analyzing overall benefits and feelings.
7. Do I need to shower before or after a WBC session?
No, you do need to be dry to enter the Cryotherapy sauna. We provide clean tools in the changing rooms to utilize if you are damp. It is not recommended to take a hot shower to warm up and to let your body work at reheating itself for at least 6 hours.
8. Can I go into a sauna or tanning bed after a Cryotherapy session?
No, wait at least 6 hours.
