Has cryotherapy been tested?

Researchers and providers in Europe have been developing and refining cryotherapy for many years.

How many times can I get cryotherapy in a day?

We recommend no more than 2 times a day and only if you are in heavy training.  A consistent regiment of two or three times a week for most people is adequate.

Do I need to take a shower before or after my treatment?

No, you do not.  This is an absolutely dry process and does not make your skin wet.

Can I catch a cold from my treatment?

Immediate cold impact of the cryo treatment will raise the internal body temperature for a short 

period of time (30-40 seconds).  This rise will have a positive effect on chills and may help to fight the cold.

I am claustrophobic, will I feel comfortable in the cryosauna?

Yes you will.  The door is never locked and you can step out at any moment.  Also, the inside of the cabin is adjusted to your height, your head and neck will be above the cabin at all times.

How does this compare to an ice bath?

No comparison.  It is not possible to achieve the same temperatures and effect with an ice bath.  An ice bath is generally an excruciating 12-15 minutes or longer wet process, where, cryotherapy is only 2 1/2-3 minutes dry session.

How can anyone endure the cold and how will I feel afterwards?

This process only involves hyper cooled air flowing over the skin's surface.  So the process never freezes any skin tissue or organs.  You will only have a feeling of being cold.  During your treatment, endorphin's (your body's natural feel good hormones) are released.  The effects from each treatment last for approximately 6-8 hours after.

Is nitrogen dangerous to humans?

The air we breath everyday is made up of 16% Oxygen, 1% Hydrogen, 78% Nitrogen and 5% of other components.  The client in the chamber does not breath in gasiform air or nitrogen gas.  The client is elevated above the chamber from the chin up and breathing clean oxygen.  This is ensured by proper ventilation and verified by an oxygen sensor at all times.
