FAQ

A – When it is your turn, you will be taken to the dressing room to remove your clothing and jewelry. You will put on gloves, socks and shoes. Men must wear underwear. Women may choose to go nude or undress until comfortable. Please, no bras with any underwire. The more skin exposed the better the treatment will work. You will put on a robe and wait until the technician gets you.

The technician will start your session and supervise you during your 2 – 3 minute cryo session. Once the session is complete, the technician will take you back to the dressing room to redress.

–  Any service done by a therapist requires an appointment. For everything else we prefer to have you schedule an appointment to ensure time and space, but walk-ins are more than welcome. Walk-ins may have to wait depending on how busy the schedule is that day.

Note: the infrared sauna needs a 30 minute heads up to preheat.

– No, we will provide gloves, socks and shoes. You may bring a swimsuit if you are uncomfortable going in nude or underwear. Men must wear underwear. We ask that clothing worn in the chamber is dry (this includes sweat from work out sessions). You may want to take off all jewelry including body piercings.

A- No, you don’t have to wear anything in particular, we just ask that you do not get fully nude. You may want to wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting sweaty.

– No, you don’t need to wear anything specific. You may want to wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind laying in.

A – The first appointment can take an extra 15 minutes to fill out forms. For that reason please come in early. For more information please see “How long should I plan for a session?”

– Everyone is different but in most cases you will start to feel the results immediately after you step out of the chamber however these have been known to wear off during the day.  The general opinion is that the day after the day after your session feels best. More serious conditions require an average of 3 consecutive sessions for desired results.

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 report noticing a deeper sleep and feeling reduced pain and inflammation during 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. You can exercise immediately after if you want to.

A – No, unless you have a contraindication. The cooling agent, Nitrogen, is in 78% of the air we breathe every day. Our 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 cryosauna, so you can step out at any time. Lastly, our cryosauna has a 3-minute auto shut off timer.

A – Yes it is cold but should not be painful. The temperatures reach downward to -250ºF. Legs may “tingle” and the goal is to numb the muscles.

A– We use Nitrogen to cool the cryosauna to between -170°F and -250°F. The gas hyper cools the air in the chamber.

A – Yes, it is. The length of the session maxes at 3 minutes and our cryosauna has an auto shut off timer. This short period of time is well within tolerable ranges for the human body.

A – This is very dependent on what your goals are. 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, chronic inflammation, and pain come in for cryotherapy sessions 2-4 times a week.

A – Yes, we take health and savings & flex spending cards as long as they have a visa or mastercard logo. We also take workers comp and auto insurance. If you would like for your insurance to cover cryotherapy please ask them in advance.

A – No, you may not share the packages or groupons. However, you can share memberships among as many people as you would like.

A – If you notice that you are not seeing the same results as when you first started, 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.

Yes, a client under the age of 14 cannot use whole body cryotherapy and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian’s signature. Clients who currently have high/low blood pressure, have had seizures, have a severe case of Raynaud’s syndrome, are pregnant, have any existing heart issues, have any major vascular issues, have clots or have had a brain aneurysm, or have had a stroke cannot use cryotherapy. Medical conditions like seizures or stroke may be waived with a doctor’s permission.

Yes, we have cryo contouring that reduces fat and cellulite.

The WBC and Infrared also helps with weight management. Clients may loose between 500 – 800 calories per session. 500 calories are approximately 1/7th of 1 lb of fat. Theoretically, if someone had a session every day of the week, they could lose 1 lb  per week as long as they were maintaining their diet and exercise.

The cryosauna is one person at a time whereas the rooms can take multiple people. The single unit, therefore, is more private while rooms hold two or three people per session. Also, the cryosauna uses nitrogen whereas the room is refrigerated. Because we use gas, your head is outside the unit. This also means no uncomfortable masks and goggles.

They are like a 15 min massage for your legs, hip, or arm. They promote blood flow and help reduce lactic acid build up. For more information please see Body Compressions under services.

The whole body cryo uses a systemic reaction to take away inflammation and pain all over the body.

Localized Cryo only works on a 4″ x 4″ area to topically reduce inflammation. Because of that, we usually pair it with a medical massage to loosen muscles prior to the localization.

A membership is a month to month/annual agreement where you purchase a certain amount of points at the beginning of each month depending on the tier. We have three tiers: Bronze, silver and gold. See pricing for more information on them. You can spend points to use on our services. Points do roll-over unless the membership has been cancelled. Memberships can also be shared with as many people as you’d like.
