Terms & Policies
Are there any age restrictions?
Yes. No one under the age of 16 will be allowed a session. If your age is 16-18, we require parental consent.
What do I wear?
PLEASE BE SURE NOT TO WEAR ANY LOTIONS, OILS, OR SPRAYS ON YOUR BODY AS THE MOISTURE MAY CAUSE FROSTBITE. Clients are required to dress in protective clothing composed of cotton socks and underwear (men). You will be provided mittens and booties to protect your extremities. We suggest men wear athletic shorts, women wear non wired sports bra and athletic shorts. Modesty is preserved at all times as only your face and hands are visible to the technician.
Is nitrogen dangerous to humans?
No. Nitrogen is a non-toxic gas. The air that we breathe is made up of 78% nitrogen.
Can I have multiple treatments in one day?
Yes. You must wait four hours between sessions.
Should I work out before or after a treatment?
Both are completely safe. Receiving therapy before working out will enhance your energy and endurance, promoting muscle recovery and rejuvenation. We recommend light exercise after your cryo sessions. This will assist in stabilizing your bodys temperature, promote vasodilation and extend the period of analgesia.
Who should not use cryotherapy?
- Untreated hypertension (BP 180/100)
- Heart attack within previous 6 months
- Congestive heart failure
- Ischemic heart disease
- Tumor diseases
- Chronic liver disease
- Unstable angina pectoris
- Deep vein thrombosis or known circulatory dysfunctions
- Acute febrile respiratory conditions
- Acute kidney and urinary tract infections
- Severe anemia
- Seizure disorders
- Open sores
- Raynaud’s disease
- Hyperhidrosis or uncontrolled diabetes.
What are the risks?
Whole body cryotherapy is very well tolerated and has very small risks. A small increase in blood pressure up to 10 points systolically can be expected but does not happen to all clients. The rise in blood pressure quickly returns to normal after the treatment. Allergic reactions to extreme cold are very rare but may happen.
*The Whole body cryotherapy sauna is not considered a regulated medical device by the FDA.X
