Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to take the cold temperatures?

Rest assured, your skin won’t freeze. You will feel cold as the cold air flows over the surface of your skin (which, in turn, creates the beneficial results). The air is completely dry and does not cool any muscular or dermal tissue like an ice bath would, making it surprisingly comfortable.

How will I feel after my session?

During your session, your body releases endorphins, hormones that make you feel good and energetic. Pain and inflammation will decrease. Additionally, you could burn as much as 500 calories or more per session due to the increase in metabolic rate, so you may feel a spike in your appetite shortly following your session. You are also your most flexible within the first hour after each session so you will see immediate improvement in your range of motion.

Is CryoRecovery safe?

Yes. Cryo chambers have been used for over three decades without any severe adverse reaction ever recorded. Problems have only arisen if a client steps into the machine with wet clothing, especially wet socks, as water will freeze immediately at these temperatures. In order to protect the more temperature sensitive tissues such as hands and feet, clients wear dry socks, slippers, and gloves.

Is CryoRecovery uncomfortable?

Even people who don’t like being cold are amazed at how much the enjoy CryoRecovery. The treatment has a very short duration of 2-3 minutes, and the cold is completely “dry,” so it is very tolerable. One of the enormous benefits of CryoRecovery is that it is natural, non-invasive, and fun! While it can feel very cold, only the outer layer of skin reaches 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit and it is never painful

How will I feel after a session?

During each CryoRecovery session, the body releases endorphins, which make you feel very good and energetic. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days. People often report a noticeable increase in metabolism throughout the day as well as sleeping better. One of the powerful benefits of CryoRecovery is that you can be both energetic and very relaxed, while at the same time experiencing less pain.

How many CryoRecovery sessions should I have?

This really depends on the reason for treatment. You should plan for five – 10 treatments in close succession (separated by 1-2 days) to maximize your results. After that, you can take fewer treatments (once every week or two) spaced further apart to maintain and improve upon your results.

Can CryoRecovery sessions cause me to catch a cold?

No. The immediate cold impact of the cryo session actually raises the internal body temperature for a short period of time. The stimulation of the immune system can help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.

Since I'm claustrophobic, will I be able to do whole body cryotherapy?

Yes, you will. The door is never locked and you may step out at any moment. Additionally, the chamber opens at the top and your head is raised above the level of the upper rim of the chamber.

Should I plan on taking a shower before or after?

No. CryoRecovery is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet. In fact, taking a shower beforehand is a definite no-no since your skin must be absolutely dry before you enter the chamber.

What are the risks of whole body cryotherapy?

Whole body cryotherapy is very well tolerated and has minimal risks. However, possible risks include fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure by up to 10 points systolic (this effect reverses after the end of the procedure, as peripheral circulation returns to normal), allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), claustrophobia, redness, and skin burns (only if exposed to low temperatures longer than recommended).
