How will I feel during a Cryotherapy session?
During the Cryotherapy session, participants feel an extreme coldness on the surface of their skin. Some participants may even shiver.
Can the client catch a cold from Cryotherapy?
No. In fact, this short exposure to cold will make your immune system develop resistance against future common colds.
Is exercising after treatment recommended?
Yes. 5 to 10-minute exercise is recommended, but not necessary to feel all the potential benefits of cryotherapy.
Do I have to take a shower before or after Cryosauna?
No. This procedure is dry and does not make your skin wet, but it is imperative that your skin, hair and clothing are completely dry prior to entering the chamber.
How often should I use the cold therapy?
If you use this method for the first time, we recommend several treatments in a month, and after that, you can use it 1-3 times in one week. Also, it depends on the reason you need this treatment. If you are, for example, recovering from a surgery 3-5 times a week is advised.
If you want to experience all the benefits, the treatment should be used continuously. Going to the gym once a week will not dramatically improve your health and fitness levels. This rule can be applied to a cold treatment too.
After 3 months of intensive use, your body acquires a certain immunity to cryotherapy. It is therefore recommended that after this period, you decrease your visits to Cryosauna to once in a week for a month. After this, you can return to intensive treatments again. Cryotherapy also can be as frequent as daily and many find it gives the best results if enjoyed as often as possible.
Is Cryotherapy dangerous?
No. This is one of the most recommended and safest treatments for the whole body. During the session, there is also a technical person present, an assistant that constantly controls the temperature monitor.
Cold method has its limits. Cryotherapy is not recommended for people who:
- Respiratory diseases
- Chronic liver disease
- Venous diseases (DVT or known circulatory dysfunction)
- Bacterial and viral infections of the skin
- Hyperhidrosis – heavy perspiration
- Wound healing disorders (open sores or discharging wound/skin conditions)
If you have any health problems, it is advised to consult with your doctor first, before the therapy.
What should I wear in the Cryosauna?
We recommend you wear as less as possible. Women do not have to wear anything (bra is optional), but men should wear underwear. Also, bathing suits are ok, WBC works best when more skin is exposed. Customer must remove all metal jewelry, and not apply any oils, lotions, or cologne prior to the treatment. During a cryotherapy session a participant wears dry thermal socks, thermal gloves, Cryo boots and undergarments.
Who should use this treatment?
This treatment is for everyone who wants to improve their physical and mental health. The individuals under the age of eighteen, must have parental consent, and have a parent with them during each session. Before the treatment starts, we will listen to your needs, find the best option for your recovery and determine the number of required sessions.
How soon can I expect results?
You’ll feel great right after your first treatment. You will experience the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, that will last for several hours. The more treatments you do, the longer the endorphin lasts. Many clients also report improvements in their sleep quality. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief of muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days. Changes in skin texture, reduction in cellulite, and weight loss will take longer to see results, and may require a series of cryotherapy sessions for maximum results.
How will I feel after the session?
Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, the hormones that make us feel happy and energetic. These effects of each session usually last six to eight hours after treatment. The more treatments you do, the longer the endorphin lasts. Many clients also report improvements in their sleep quality. Muscle aches and stiff joints also feel a sense of relief. Cryotherapy participants say they experience a multitude of benefits and this is the driving force behind a new lifestyle of wellness.
How does Cryosauna work?
After entering the Cryosauna, while you are standing, nitrogen gas vaporizes around you creating temperatures of 90°C to 120°C. During a period of three to four minutes, your skin surface temperature is lowered to approximately 50°F to 30°F. Sudden fall in temperature triggers the skin’s cold receptors to activate the body’s most powerful survival mechanisms. The result is the release of endorphins and a rapid circulation of oxygen & nutrient-rich blood throughout the body that targets any inflammation and repairs the specific area. It is not just about cold bath, Cryosauna is a cabin that makes your body healthier.
For most people, this is not an unpleasant experience. Of course, everyone has a different tolerance to low temperatures, but people who experienced the treatment said that it is not nearly as uncomfortable as sitting in cold water. WBC is a safe way to recover your body after stressful experiences, such as extreme sports activities. Nitrogen is completely nontoxic gas. Nitrogen is as common and safe as Oxygen. If you are claustrophobic, you can use Cryosauna too, because your entire head remains exposed to the room, and you can always get out of the cabin. A technician is available at all times.
You will feel a strong sense of cold, but there is no actual freezing, and the risk to your health is minimal. The result is a potential decrease in chronic and acute inflammation, increased cell regeneration, improved athletic performance and elevated energy levels. People use whole body cryotherapy to complement health and wellness initiatives.
