Cryo FAQ

How does it work?

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.

Do I have to take a shower before and/or after the procedure?

No. This procedure is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet.

I am claustrophobic. Can I use the CryoCabin?

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.

Can I catch a cold because of this procedure?

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.

How do I feel after?

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.

Is it comfortable? What should I wear?

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.

Is nitrogen gas dangerous to human beings?

No. Nitrogen is completely natural gas. Air that we breathe is made up of 21% Oxygen, 1% Argon, and 78% Nitrogen.

Has cryotherapy been tested?

Researchers in North America and Europe have been developing and refining cryotherapy for more than two decades.

Is there any studies or anecdotal information regarding Cryosauna?

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.

Who developed this technology?

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.

What to expect and what to wear?

The entire process only lasts 2 to 3 minutes. During the session, everyone must wear socks and men must wear at least underwear.

Who uses Cryotherapy in North America?

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.
