The CryoCabin uses gasiform nitrogen to create an environment of ambient temperature of -120 degrees Celsius for two to three minutes. The skin reacts to the cold and sends a powerful message to the brain that acts as a stimulant to all regulatory functions of the body.
No. This procedure is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet.
Yes, you may. The door is never locked and you can step out at any moment. Also, the stage inside the cabin is adjusted to keep your head outside and over the edge of the cabin at all times.
Immediate cold impact of the cryo session will raise the internal body temperature to over 37 degrees Celsius for a short period of time (around 30-40 sec). This rise has a positive effect on chills and may help to fight the cold.
During each session endorphins, or the body’s natural “feel good” substance, are released. The buoyant effects from each session last at least six hours.
Before entering the CryoCabin, it is recommended that clients dress in protective, comfortable clothing such as cotton socks, a bathing suit, or underwear. This allows clients to remain comfortable during the session.
No. Nitrogen is completely natural gas. Air that we breathe is made up of 21% Oxygen, 1% Argon, and 78% Nitrogen.
Researchers in North America and Europe have been developing and refining cryotherapy for more than two decades.
Yes, indeed. Here you can find the story of the incredibly successful rehabilitation of Formula 1 RED BULL TEAM pilot Mark Webber from a broken leg. There are plenty of studies on WBC including RHEUMATIC DESEASES, DEPRESSIVE SYMPTOMS, FYBROMIALGIA and CRYOGENIC PHYSICAL THERAPY.
The process was originally developed in Japan in 1978, and the benefits have been studied and refined in Europe and North America since that time.
The entire process only lasts 2 to 3 minutes. During the session, everyone must wear socks and men must wear at least underwear.
Cryotherapy is used in many places across North America including Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon under the leadership of Alberto Salazar. Cryotherapy is used by tons of professional athletes and teams including the Toronto Maple Leafs and celebrities such as Katy Perry. One of Cryotherapy’s biggest advocates is the comedian, sports broadcaster and podcaster, Joe Rogan.
