FAQS

Cryotherapy is the science of using cold temperatures to safely lower your skin’s temperature to induce four main health benefits: Recovery, beauty, weight loss and overall health and wellness.

A °CRYO Chamber is where we conduct our whole body cryotherapy sessions. Once you step into a °CRYO Chamber, your body is briefly enveloped with cryogenically cooled air with temperatures reaching as low as -140°C for a maximum period of three minutes.

Cryotherapy treatments are not dangerous as the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin. A trained operator is always present during the treatment to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.

Most people can do a cryotherapy session. The people who cannot are anyone who has: (1) An unmanaged hypertension or a pacemaker, (2) has a history of or is being treated for cancer (3) has deep vein thrombosis, (4) a cold allergy or (5) is pregnant should not use cryotherapy. If you have questions about whether you have any risk, you should first ask your healthcare provider before using a °CRYO Chamber.

Yes! °CRYO treatments are comfortable. Describing the feeling of a °CRYO Chamber treatment is like standing naked in front of a freezer on a hot day.

Most of our treatments last for three minutes. However, some of our facial and other treatments can last up to 60 minutes depending on your requirements.

Absolutely. Our °CRYO Chamber’s have the option to have your head above the cold air and maintain contact with the outside. The °CRYO Chamber is also equipped with a door that is closed but not locked, so you are always in control while in the chamber.

You will be in your underwear and we will provide disposable ones (upon request) to put on as well. We will also provide mittens, socks and foot protection to protect your extremities from the cold.

There is no showering involved with cryotherapy. Our treatments are completely dry.

It depends on the results you are trying to achieve. We generally recommend 2-3 treatments per week to see results. °CRYO cannot guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results. However, we can tell you that you’ll likely feel great right away because after completing your first treatment, our clients usually experience a release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy and increased flexibility that can last for several hours or even days.
*Results may vary based on the individual.

While every °CRYO session can be beneficial, we recommend our clients consider one of our membership packages to receive maximum benefits. As a maintenance program, we suggest that the series be repeated every three months. Professional athletes will often have between 4-6 sessions per week to help achieve peak performance during intense traning periods.

°CRYO Glow Facials tighten the pores that appear on our face and in the process, can also tighten the skin. During a treatment, the surface temperature of your skin will drop to around 7-8 degrees Celsius, a process that in some cases increases the production of healthy collagen. The application of the °CRYO Glow Facial takes around 10 minutes. It is very comfortable and relaxing.
