How does is work?
The Cryosauna uses gasiform nitrogen to lower the client’s skin surface temperature by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of two-three minutes. The Cryochamber is cooled using liquid nitrogen but clients are not in direct contact with the gas. The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that acts as a stimulant to the regulatory functions of the body. It produces the scanning of all areas that may not be working to their fullest potential. The skin exposure to the extreme temperatures also triggers the release of anti-inflammatory molecules and endorphins
Will I feel discomfort during the treatment?
Most individuals are surprised to feel how tolerable a cryotherapy session is given such extreme temperatures. The nitrogen in our cryosauna creates a “dry” cold, which is much more comfortable than an ice bath. We will talk you through it and make the 3 minutes pass quickly and comfortably..
Can I return to my daily activities following a treatment?
Yes, there are no restrictions to your activities following a cryotherapy treatment.
Is Nitrogen dangerous?
No, Nitrogen is a non-toxic gas that makes up about 78% of the air we breathe. However, breathing pure nitrogen could cause fainting, due to the lack of oxygen. To prevent this, the cryosauna is designed to keep the patient’s head above the chamber.
How often should I do Cryotherapy?
We recommend that our patients do their first 10 sessions within 30 days and then decide how often they would like to continue. Many benefits such a rush of endorphins and better sleep can be experienced as early as the first session. Maximum results are obtained with repeated treatments.
