Cryotherapy | Icebox Cryotherapy

Whole-body Cryotherapy was originally designed as a treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Inflammatory Joint Diseases. Proving extremely effective, Whole-body Cryotherapy quickly gained notoriety for that specific issue, but also to treat systemic inflammation processes throughout the body.

Inflammation is part of a complex biological response of tissues to harmful stimuli, such as damaged cells. The common signs of inflammation are pain, heat, redness, and swelling, being a protective attempt by the body to remove the injurious stimuli and initiate the healing process. Initially, this is an effective part of the body’s natural healing process. Problems occur when chronic inflammation goes unchecked throughout the body.

With Whole Body Cryotherapy, the chronic inflammation is reduced and in some instances, completely stopped. Thus improving circulation, reducing pain and promoting an overall better health.

How does it work?

Icebox Cryotherapy uses non-toxic gasiform nitrogen to lower the client’s skin surface temperature from normal body temperature to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in 30 seconds or less and keeps it that way for two-three minutes. The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that acts as a stimulant to the regulatory functions of the body. It produces the scanning of all areas that may not be working to their fullest potential.

What to expect?

During each session, the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The buoyant effects from each session last at least six – eight hours and increase with the number of treatment sessions. Many clients have expressed that they have the best night of sleep after a Cryo session.

What do I wear?

Before entering the Cryosauna, clients are required to dress in protective clothing composed of cotton socks & Gloves (which are provided) and underwear. You will also be provided with a robe, which you will remove once you are inside the Cryo-chamber and the door is closed. Only your hands and face are visible to the operator during the procedure, so modesty is preserved at all times.

Additionally, it is a dry, gaseous cold. Which means the treatment is tolerable even to those who may consider themselves cold-intolerant.

How many treatments?

Depending on the condition of treatment, you should initially take 5 – 10 treatments in close succession to maximize your results.

I am claustrophobic?

The door is never locked and you may step out at any moment. The chamber is open at the top and your head is raised above the level of the upper rim of the chamber. Additionally, you can see our provider at all times and we try to keep you distracted for your three-minute treatment

Working out after?

Yes, working out before or after treatment is fine.

What are the risks?

Whole body Cryotherapy is very well tolerated and has minimal risks: Fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure can be up to 10 points systolically (this effect reverses after the end of the procedure, as peripheral circulation returns to normal), allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), claustrophobia, and anxiety.
