Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do anything special before my cryotherapy session?

Not really. Make sure you have some dry undergarments with you. We understand things happen, and if you don't have any with you, we will provide a towel for you. You will also be required to sign a waiver before your first session.

What is the age requirement for cryotherapy?

Anyone 18 years old or older, and that meet certain height and health requirements to enjoy cryotherapy. Clients under the age of 18 must have parental consent and a guardian present at the time of the session. The minimum age allowed is 14.

Should I do cryotherapy before or after exercise?

Some people that use cryotherapy before exercise claim they experience increased energy, endurance, and flexibility. Also, using cryotherapy after exercise can help you experience faster recovery times.

What do I do during the cryotherapy session?

During your supervised session, a cryosauna operator instructs you to continuously rotate to maximize your cryotherapy experience.

Do I have to stay in the cryosauna the entire 3-minute session?

3 minutes is the maximum recommended session time for cryotherapy. Your safety and comfort is our first priority and you have complete control over when you exit the cryosauna. However, no session exceeds more than 3 minutes, and the operator is present through the entire session.

What do I wear during my cryotherapy session?

We will provide you with thermal gloves, socks, booties, and a comfy robe. Dry undergarments must be worn through the entire cryotherapy session. If you do not have dry undergarments with you, a towel will be provided for you.

How often should I do cryotherapy?

Most people experience the benefits of cryotherapy after 3-5 consecutive sessions. We recommend that if you want to maintain those benefits, you should do cryotherapy 2-3 times a week.

What if I’m claustrophobic?

Your head is always outside of the cryosauna during a session, and the door does not lock, for an easy exit. If you feel uncomfortable at anytime during your session, let the operator know, and they can pause or stop the session.
