WHAT TO EXPECT
Before your first Cryotherapy session, you will fill out a physical readiness form. Our technician will ensure you are healthy enough to undergo treatment, your blood pressure will be taken and the technician will explain the process and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Once you are ready, you will enter into the changing room undressing into undergarments and removing all jewelry. Men need to wear briefs or boxers. Women can wear underwear but it is not necessary. All clients must be DRY! If you are coming in after a workout, please bring dry underwear to wear inside the cryosauna! We will provide you with fresh socks, gloves, slippers and a robe. These items are required in order to protect the extremities of your body. Privacy is very important to us! We will only see your face, as the rest of your body will be in the cryosauna.
Now that you are ready to go you will step into the machine and we will raise you up so that your head is above the rim of the cryosauna. Once there, you will remove your robe and the technician will start the machine. Nitrogen gas will surround the body for up to 3 mins. As the cold receptors beneath the skin sense this sudden extreme change of temperature, the body goes into “survival mode” and the blood vessels near the skin quickly constrict (vasoconstriction) to send blood to the major organs to maintain core body temperature. You can request at any time to STOP but we suggest you try to go for atleast 1 ½ minutes to receive the full benefit of Cryotherapy.
Once you step out of the cryosauna you will head back in the dressing room. When you re enter into a room temperature environment the blood vessels quickly dilate (vasodilation) and the blood rushes back to the skin. Within 1-2 minutes, you will begin to warm up and feel the euphoric and energizing effects of Whole Body Cryotherapy. The entire treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. Now you can enjoy the rest of your day feeling Repaired, Recovered and Rejuvenated!
