YOUR FIRST CRYO-SESSION STEP-BY-STEP
- Before your first session, you will complete a health history to ensure there are no contraindications to treatment.
- You are then escorted to the cryo-room where you will change out of your clothes. Men need to wear briefs or boxers. Women can wear underwear but it is not necessary. We will provide you with fresh socks, gloves, slippers and a robe. The robe is removed once you are in the chamber. Socks, gloves, and slippers are required to protect the extremities. Privacy is very important to us! We will only see your face, as the rest of your body will be in the cryosauna.
- Before commencing the session, the technician will raise the inside platform so that your head is above the rim of the chamber. Once in place, the session will begin and you will be surrounded by nitrogen gas. You will immediately feel the cold and your blood vessels near the skin will quickly constrict sending blood to the major organs in order to maintain core body temperature. The session normally lasts three minutes.
- Once you step out of the cryochamber and into a room temperature environment the blood vessels quickly dilate (vasodilation) and the blood rushes back to the skin. Within 1-2 minutes, you will begin to warm up and should feel invigorated. Now you can enjoy the rest of your day feeling Repaired, Recovered and Rejuvenated!
