For 3-minutes, our Cryo chamber will cool the surface of your skin by 30-50°F using cooled nitrogen. This activates the body’s powerfully healing “cold-shock response”. During the session, blood will rush to the core and once the sessions is over, it returns to the extremities carrying newly released neurotransmitters and hormones that can dramatically lower inflammation, increase collagen levels, boost mood, accelerate recovery, and increase focus among many other benefits. To battle the cold, the body also revs up the metabolism to create heat, which burns fat and provides a boost of energy. It has been widely shown that Cryotherapy produces the best results when 5 – 10 treatments are done in close succession (separated by 1-2 days). After, weekly treatments are ideal to maintain and improve on your results so check out our packages and memberships!
Inflammation has been identified as the key driver of the aging process, causes pain, and is associated with most age related diseases. Cryo will increase your norepinephrine levels, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
In order to recover its normal temperature, the body will ramp up the metabolism to produce heat and in the process will burn between 400 and 800 calories per session and will give you a noticeable boost in energy
HRV is the change in oscillation between heart-beats. A higher HRV will improve the ability for your heart to slow after a workout and a high HRV indicates dominance of the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes relaxation, recovery, sleep, and digestion.
After multiple sessions, the body starts to make more mitochondria in your fat cells, which helps with resistance to the cold.
When you’re exposed to cold temperatures, the body sends the blood flow to vital organs and the brain. As soon as you warm, the blood rushes back to the extremities, which increases your circulation and brings both oxygen and vital nutrients to all parts of the body.
Top athletes have been taking ice baths for decades to relieve pain. While ice baths helped reduce inflammation and swelling, it was a long process that was extremely uncomfortable. Thankfully, cryo only takes a few minutes to achieve the same results.
Cryo has been shown to enhance collagen levels, so if you’re having problems with joints and tendons or just want to stave off wrinkles and skin aging, it’s a perfect and natural alternative to collagen injections.
Part of the cold-shock response is an increase (up to 5x w/ continual sessions) of norepinephrine, which has been shown to increase focus, attention and mood.
We recommend you complete 5-10 treatments in close succession to maximize your results. After that, you can slow to once every week or two weeks to maintain and improve your results.
Yes. One of our trained employees will be with you the whole time and you’ll be breathing normal air with oxygen. In addition, there are oxygen sensors to make sure everything is working properly.
Don’t worry! We’ll play some music for you, so you can relax and have fun with it. The three minutes will go by very fast, so typically once you start getting cold the session is over. If you find yourself too cold, you can get out at any time. You are in control of your session.
No. The immediate cold impact of the Cryo session will raise the internal body temperature for a short period of time. The stimulation of the immune system can actually help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.
During each session your body will release endorphin’s which are hormones that make you feel great and energetic! The mood-enhancing effects from each Cryo session can last for days.
After being escorted into our private Cryotherapy room, you will remove all clothing (underwear optional for women, men must keep underwear on or use small towel to cover area). You will then put on 1 pair of dry socks, gloves, earmuffs, slippers and a robe all of which will be provided by us. We do require that you remove any metal or jewelry on the body. Don’t worry though, one of our team members will ensure you are wearing proper attire.
