A – Clients will check in at the front desk. If this is your 1st visit we will have a short Liability form for you to review and sign.
When it is your turn, you will be taken to a private room to remove all your clothing and jewelry and to put on gloves, socks and shoes. Men must wear underwear. Women may undress until comfortable. Please, no bras with underwire. The more skin exposed the better the treatment will work.
You will then step into the private enclosed chamber, close the door and ring the doorbell. The technician will then come in and start your session and supervise you during your 2 – 3 minute cryo session. Once the session is complete, the technician will leave the room so that you may step out of the chamber and redress.
A – We prefer to have you scheduled an appointment but walk-ins are more than welcome.
A – No, we will provide gloves, socks and shoes. Women may bring a swimsuit if they are uncomfortable going in nude. Men must wear underwear. We ask that clothing worn in the chamber is dry, this includes sweat from work out sessions.
A – Aside from variable wait times, most people are in and out in 15 minutes.
A – Everyone is different but In most cases You will start to feel the results right after you step out of the chamber. More serious conditions require an average of 3 treatments for desired results.
A – Yes it is cold but should not painful. The temperatures reach downward to -250F. Legs may “tingle” and the goal is to numb the mussels.
A -No, while in the cryochamber you will only be wearing socks, slippers, and gloves, and men also wear briefs. This allows for 90% of your skin to be exposed to the hyper cool air. It is fine to leave your hair down and have on a face lotion or makeup. We just ask that you do not apply lotion or any moisture to your skin an hour before your session. We suggest no jewelry or metals to be worn below the neck. If possible, take out piercings; otherwise, please cover them with band-aids.
A – The first appointment can take around 15 minutes. the session itself doesn’t take to long but with paperwork and dressing/undressing it can take longer. After the first appointment, sessions typically take 5-7 minutes.
A – Because the effects of cryotherapy are different for every client, it will depend entirely on how your body reacts to the session. Typically, most clients feel an increase of energy and flexibility and a decrease of inflammation within the first few minutes or hours. Some clients feel the first impact the next morning after a sleep cycle. Many reports noticing a deeper sleep and feeling reduced pain and inflammation the following 48 hours.
A – No, there is nothing you have to avoid and nothing you should do after your session. Although we suggest to stretch out or stay active.
A – No, unless conducted by an untrained technician or if you have a contraindication. The cooling agent, Nitrogen, is in 78% of the air we breathe every day. With our certified technicians running your sessions are fully trained on safety and operational protocols, and are capable of stopping the session if you should want to get out before your session is done. Likewise, there is no lock on the door of the cryochamber, so you can step out at any time. Lastly, our Criomed cryochamber has a 3-minute auto shut off timer.
A– We use Nitrogen to cool the cryochamber to -240F. It is transformed into hyper cool air which is what cools the chamber and allows it to get into “Cryo Temperatures.”
A – Yes, it is. The length of the session maxes at 3 minutes, and our Criomed cryochamber has a 3-minute auto shut off timer. This short period of time and our limit of fluids that enter the chamber does not allow your body to reach hypothermia.
A – This is very dependent on what you are using cryotherapy for. Most clients who are using it for overall health and wellness receive a cryotherapy session 1-2 times a week. Clients who have an injury, inflammation, aches and pains receive cryotherapy sessions 2-4 times a week.
A – No, We do not accept insurance policies. You can always ask your insurance provider if they can reimburse you, but we do not accept insurance for payment. Many of our clients use their health savings account cards just like a credit card.
A – Yes, you may share the bronze package among as many people as you would like but memberships can only be used by one person.
A – If you notice that you are not seeing the same results as when you first started to do cryotherapy sessions, we recommend taking 2 weeks off and then starting over with 1-3 sessions a week. Your body will never become completely used to the effects of extreme cold exposure but the results will seem less intense with prolonged overuse.
A – Yes, a client under the age of 14 cannot use cryotherapy and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian signature. The client cannot have high blood pressure during the process, have had seizures, have a severe case of Raynaud’s syndrome, be pregnant, have any existing heart issues, have any major vascular issues, have clots or have had a brain aneurysm, or have had a stroke. Medical conditions like seizures or stroke may be waived with a doctor’s permission.
