What Is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a hyper-cooling process that lowers a person’s skin temperature to approximately 30 degrees F for a period, (up to three minutes) by enveloping the body with nitrogen-chilled air.
Benefits Of Whole Body Cryotherapy
When cooled, thermoreceptors in the skin signal the brain to pump more blood to the bodies core to help maintain body temperature. This process is called vasoconstriction.
During this process toxins are flushed from the peripheral tissues and blood is enriched with oxygen, enzymes, and nutrients. Endorphins are also released for further benefit.
As the body warms up again, the enriched blood circulates through the body using a process called vasodilation. As a result, whole body cryotherapy is very effective for athletic recovery and muscle repair, reduction of chronic pain and inflammation, and an overall enhancement of health and wellness.
Our Cryosauna is a whole-body Cryotherapy treatment. Super-chilled nitrogen is pumped into the chamber for a period of 1-3 minutes (depending on your experience and comfort level).
During your session, a Cryo Tech will be there to explain the simple process from beginning to end.
What To Wear:
It’s recommended entering the cryosauna with underwear and socks. Robes are provided. After the cryosauna door is shut, you’ll hand your robe to the Cryo Tech. After your session, the cryo tech will hand the robe back to you before opening the cryosauna doors.
It’s recommended entering the cryosauna with underwear, bra (or sports bra) and socks. Robes are provided. After the cryosauna door is shut, you’ll hand your robe to the Cryo Tech. After your session, the cryo tech will hand the robe back to you before opening the cryosauna doors.
Unlike an Icebath, you can workout before and/or after your cryosauna session. There are no activity restrictions associated with cryotherapy – before or after.
