FAQ

What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?

WBC is the process of exposing the body to hyper cool temperatures in order to elicit the natural healing process. Developed in Japan in the 1970s, WBC is used by professional athletes to decrease recovery time and improve performance and by clients seeking recovery from musculoskeletal pain.

Is Whole Body Cryotherapy for me?

Whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or generally seeking enhanced health and wellness, WBC can help your body achieve its ultimate potential.

Is Whole Body Cryotherapy safe?

Yes. Because WBC uses cold air, the cooling agents never actually come into contact with your skin. The air is chilled using liquid nitrogen, and nitrogen makes up 78% of the air we breath. Because the temperature change to your body is only superficial, your internal body temperature remains constant throughout treatment. Your head is always kept outside of the low temperature area.

who should not use Whole Body Cryotherapy?

WBC should not be used if you are:

  • Pregnant
  • Have cold, fever, or seasonal infection (flu, sinusitis, etc.)
  • Have cold-induced asthma
  • Have an open wound or sore (including teeth abscesses)
  • Have severe hypertension
  • Have hyperthyroidism
  • Have tumor diseases
  • Have a heart or cardiovascular and respiratory disease (which may include heart disease, hyper- or hypotension, angina, heart failure ischemic heart disease or other rhythmic conditions)

  • Heart attack which dates less then 6 months

How often should I use Whole Body Cryotherapy?

The Cryosauna can be used up to twice a day, but this is typically only recommended for professional athletes on a very vigorous training schedule. Generally 2-3 treatments a week are sufficient for most patients, however treatment schedules vary depending on your level of athletic activity, severity of soft tissue ailments, and other factors.

What Do I Wear During a Session?
During the session, you will mostly undress. Gloves and socks will be provided to keep your extremities safe. Males are required to wear underwear for protection. You will also need to remove all metal jewelry and piercings prior to entering the chamber.
What If I’m Claustrophobic?
Most clients are very comfortable in the cryotherapy chamber. Because your head is not enclosed in the chamber, it does not feel constricting. The doors to the chamber do not lock, so if you are uncomfortable at any point during the session, you can easily exit the chamber.
