Cryotherapy is a hyper-cooling process in which the body is exposed to very cold temperatures in order to aid athletic performance and recovery, inflammation and pain reduction, and other health and wellness goals by stimulating the body's natural healing process. We offer whole body cryotherapy (WBC), localized cryotherapy and a cryotherapy facial.
Safety Instructions for cryotherapy that must be followed at all times:
During WBC, You must wear DRY cotton or wool socks, DRY cotton or wool gloves, DRY underwear (men) and protective shoes. We provide this for you.
Sessions are limited to a maximum of 3 minutes. Overexposure to cold could cause chillblain.
During sessions, you must avoid inhaling the nitrogen fumes. While non-toxic, they are devoid of oxygen and may cause fainting.
Abnormal skin sensitivity to cold may be caused by certain foods, cosmetics, lotions, ointments, medications or chemicals, including but not limited to: tranquilizers, high blood pressure medication
All jewelry must be removed prior to your session. We recommend makeup be removed prior to a cryotherapy facial.
A person who is less than 18 years of age may not use cryotherapy without parental consent. We require you to be at least 13 years of age to participate in whole body cryotherapy. There is no age requirement for localized cryotherapy.
You may end the procedure at any time if you experience any problems or anxiety.
