How does cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy exposes the skin to ultra-low temperatures in a controlled environment.
The extreme cold activates a central nervous system response.
Natural enzymes, adrenaline, and endorphins release as the body increases blood circulation.
Enriched blood reduces inflammation by clearing toxins, lactic acid, and metabolic waste.
Relieve and effects are felt instantly, lasting 24 to 48 hours afterward.

HISTORY OF CRYOTHERAPY
Cryotherapy dates back to ancient civilizations as early as 2500 BC.
Egyptians used it to treat injuries and inflammation.
In 1978, Whole Body Cryotherapy was developed in by Dr. Toshiba Yamaguchi as a treatment for severe rheumatoid arthritis.
Due to a high level of success and many clinical studies the treatment quickly spread to Europe being used by trainers, athletes, and physical therapists.
Today, it has become a health and wellness modality in the United States, being used by sports teams, chiropractors, physical therapists, and for those looking for new and improved health and wellness techniques.
How long is a cryotherapy session?
Full Body Cryotherapy: 1 to 3 minutes
What does full body cryotherapy feel like?
Full body cryotherapy is a very dry tolerable cold that ranges from -110*C to -130*C while inside the cryosauna. As soon as you step out many clients report a pins and needles feeling resembling that of when your leg "falls asleep".
What do I wear in the full body cryosauna?
Here at the lounge we provide all guests with the mandatory shoes, brand new pair of socks, gloves, and robe to go to and from the cryosauna. In addition:
Ladies: Have the option of wearing a sports bra (no underwire) and underwear or nothing at all. The more skin exposed the better the therapy session.
Men: Must wear boxers or shorts
Should I take a shower before or after?
You should NOT take a shower before hand . You must be completely dry for any cryotherapy. If you take a shower before hand you must wait an hour or two to ensure that your body is fully dry to do cryotherapy. After cryotherapy, you may go about your day normally or even shower.
What if I am claustrophobic?
Our Cryosauna has the ability to leave the lid open from the top for guests that are clausterphobic. You are never locked inside of the cryosauna and at the push of one finger you may exit at any time. In addition a certified cryotherapy specialist will be with you the entire therapy session. You may even try standing inside the cryosauna without it on to get a feel for the experience. We will only start your cryotherapy session when you feel comfortable to do so.
