Let the experts break it down for you...
You undress in a private dressing room (see the cryotherapy rules page for what to wear). While you are getting ready, your cryo-tech will pre-cool the cryosauna. After the pre-cool concludes, the operator will help you enter the machine.
Once inside the cryosauna, the operator will close the door and allow you to disrobe (if you are wearing a towel)! Please take a moment to review our RULES for a successful cryotherapy session!
Now that you’re in, this is where things really get interesting! Your cryo-tech will hit the “start” button and you will then start to feel the cold, dry, nitrogen vapor surrounding you. Don't worry... the ambient temperature of the tank slowly drops throughout your session. Your cryotech will talk to you to keep your mind off of the chill. They will also remind you to keep your chin up and to rotate now and then.
The cryosauna uses nitrogen gas and converts it to a vapor, which lowers your skin surface temperature from normal body temperature to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in 30 to 45 seconds and keeps it that way for 2-3 minutes. The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that stimulates the body to go into survival mode by shunting blood from the extremities to the core where the blood is enriched with oxygen, enzymes and nutrients. As the body re-warms, this nutrient rich blood is pushed back to the extremities. Enriched blood promotes internal organ regeneration, expels toxins from subcutaneous layers, initiates cell renewal process, triggers replacement of damaged cells and eliminates dead cells from peripheral tissues. Or simply put, it is rejuvenation of the body at the cellular level.
Pretty soon, the 3 minutes are up and tada!.. the session is over! Congrats, you experienced cryotherapy! You are then handed your towel back (if you wore one) and can exit the cryo-chamber with or without the help of the tech. That wasn’t so bad, was it?
While you're getting dressed, you may feel your arms/legs have a warm, tingling sensation! That is all of your super healthy blood rushing to your extremities - you're literally feeling the healing as it happens (so cool)!
Benefits peak 4-5 hours from the time of your session! Each session is compounding... meaning, the more you come, the better you feel, for longer!
There are no restricitons whatsoever! You can go about your day just as your normally would - but feeling amazing!
