During a 2-3 minute session at cryogenic temperatures, blood vessels in your skin’s surface and muscle tissue contract, forcing blood away from your peripheral tissues and towards your core. In the core, the body’s natural filtration system works to remove toxins and inflammatory properties in the blood.
After exiting the cryosauna, blood flows back to peripheral tissues. Now enriched with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes, your blood warms the skin, and muscle tissues, restoring the body to a better state.
Cryotherapy is most effective when a majority of the body’s skin is exposed to the cryogenic environment.
While in the cryosauna, we recommend wearing shorts (or underwear) and socks. We will provide slippers. Women may choose to wear a sports bra.
Like exercise and eating right, studies have shown cryotherapy to be most beneficial when done regularly over a period of time.
1 session before, and 1 session after intense activity.
3-5/ week – each session can burn up to 600 calories.
1-2 times per week.
Cryotherapy uses nitrogen gas to cool the skin. Because, each sessions maxes out at 3 minutes, there is no risk of hypothermia, or frost-bite. Nitrogen has no toxic or anesthetic properties. Our cryosauna lifts your head out of the chamber, ensuring the proper oxygen/nitrogen mix.
