CRYOTHERAPY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1

How does this compare to an ice bath?

It doesn’t. It is simply not possible to achieve the same temperatures and effect with an ice bath. Furthermore, an ice bath is generally an excruciating 12-15 minutes or longer wet process, where, cryotherapy is only a 2½ to 3 minute completely dry session.

 

2

How often can I get cryotherapy in a day?

We recommend no more than 2 times a day and only then if you are in heavy training.. Otherwise a consistent regiment of two or three times a week for most people is adequate. We recommend at least 10 sessions in the first 30 days for optimal results. Some people will need more. If you aren’t sure how many sessions you need, an employee will be happy to help you customize a plan. Sessions can be cut down to 1-2 times a week or less.

 

3

Has cryotherapy been tested?

Researchers and providers in Europe have been developing and refining cryotherapy for more than thirty years. Its 100% safe and effective.

 

4

Is nitrogen gas dangerous to human beings?

No. The air we breath everyday is made up of 16% Oxygen, 1% Hydrogen, 78% Nitrogen and 5% of other components. The client in the cryotherapy chamber does not breath in gasiform air or nitrogen gas. The client is elevated above the chamber from the chin up and breathing clean oxygen. This is ensured by proper ventilation and verified by an oxygen sensor at all times.

 

5

Who should not use whole body cryotherapy?

The following conditions are contraindications to whole body cryotherapy: Pregnancy, severe Hypertension (BP> 180/100), acute or recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, arrhythmia, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, cardiac pacemaker, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, venous thrombosis, acute or recent cerebrovascular accident, uncontrolled seizures, Raynaud’s Syndrome, fever, tumor disease, symptomatic lung disorders, bleeding disorders, severe anemia, infection, cold allergy(being allergic to cold), acute kidney and urinary tract diseases.

 

6

I am claustrophobic. Will I feel comfortable in the cryosauna?

Yes. The door is never locked and you can step out at any moment. Also, the base inside the cabin is adjusted to your height, insure your head is above and outside the cabin at all times.

 

7

How can anybody endure the cold and how do I feel after?

The process only involves hyper cooled air flowing over the surface of the skin so the process never freezes any skin tissues or organs. The result is only a “feeling” of being cold. During each session endorphins, or the body’s natural “feel good” substance, are released. The buoyant effects from each session lasts approximately six hours. During each session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic.You will also burn 500 calories or more per session, due to the body’s increase in metabolic rate

 

8

Is there a weight or age limit?

We can accommodate clients up to 350 pounds. The cryosauna is an amazing jumpstart to weight-loss, due to the increase in metabolism.It cannot hurt children, yet they are simply too small for our cryosaunas. Usually children 14 yrs and older are tall enough for the cryosauna.
