​During a 2 to 3 minute session at cryogenic temperatures, blood vessels in your skin's surface & muscle tissue constrict, forcing blood away from your peripheral tissues & toward your core. In the core, the body's natural filtration system works to remove toxins & inflammatory properties of in the blood. After exiting the cryochamber, blood flows back to peripheral tissues. Now enriched with oxygen, nutrients & enzymes, your blood warms the skin and muscle tissue & increases range of motion. Over the next 48 hours the process of restoration occurs and the body returns to a former & better state & condition. Clients report benefits that include reduced pain & inflammation, increased energy levels, & shorter recovery times from energy or workouts.

Cryotherapy

All Cryotherapy sessions are conducted by a trained technician who remains with you for the duration of your session. Inside the cryochamber you will only be wearing socks, slippers and gloves; men also wear briefs. This allows for 90% of your skin to be exposed to the hyper cool air. It is fine to leave your hair down and have on face lotion or makeup. We ask that you do not apply lotion or any moisture to your skin an hour before your session. No jewelry or metals can be worn below the neck.


Your first Cryotherapy appointment can take anywhere between 15-20 minutes so that we can fully educate you on the process and answer any questions you may have. After the first appointment, sessions typically take 5-7 minutes.
