Your Cryotherapy Questions Answered

What is cryotherapy?

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

How long does a cryotherapy session last?

Typically a session lasts 3 minutes for full body cryotherapy.

Does cryotherapy hurt?

A temperature of -180F down to -240F seems like an unbearable temperature. Remember, however, that the air in the chamber is extremely dry. Therefore, you do not really experience the cold as unpleasant. Clients say it’s actually more tolerable than an ice bath since the air is dry instead of wet—which makes it feel more like standing in front of a freezer on a hot day. The process only takes 3 minutes, which is perfectly bearable for most in practice.

How do I prepare for a cryotherapy session?

Preparing for your cryotherapy session is simple. Simply come in, change into the protective cryo gear and robe provided, and you are ready to begin your session. You will also remove all jewelry and piercings from the neck down, prior to your session.

Is a cryofacial painful?
