Whole body cryotherapy is the use of extremely cold temperatures to foster the body’s natural healing process. Your body is completely immersed in what feels like a “cold sauna.” This exposure allows regular functions of the body like circulation and endorphin release that will protect the body from the cold. These functions then promote improved healing and wellness… improving your mood, boosting your metabolism, and leading to better overall well-being. While athletes have been using this type of therapy for years to improve recovery and performance, for many it is a relatively new concept. Here are some advantages of cryotherapy:
Increases performance levels
Reduces chronic pain and fatigue
Numbs nerve irritation
Reduces migraine symptoms
Treats atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions

Although the exposure to the cold is often a strange sensation, cryotherapy doesn’t hurt. Your body will be dry the entire time, and your head remains outside the cryotherapy chamber. The session only lasts a few minutes, and most people enjoy the overall sensation.
We provide you with thermal gloves, socks, slippers, and a robe. You can choose to wear undergarments or remove them. No metal is allowed in the chamber. If you have piercing you can’t remove, we will provide you with cotton gauze and a band-aid to cover the jewelry.
During your session, a team member will guide you through your experience and will be present throughout the entire treatment. You will be instructed to continuously rotate to maximize the benefits. If you feel uncomfortable at any time during your short session of whole body cryotherapy, just let us know. Many participants experience pain relief and improved mental well-being immediately following their session.
