Frequently asked questions
Why Choose CryoTherapy?
A session of cryotherapy immediately after exercise has been proven to enhance muscular recovery and regular use promotes anti-inflammatory properties. Cryotherapy can reduce recovery time by up to 50%, improves the ability to re-train, recover and perform.
The extreme cold conditions in WBC (Whole Body Chamber) triggers a release of among other substances, endorphins that induce a reaction from your muscular system, circulatory system and nervous system.
By inducing vasoconstriction to activate microcirculation, skin is revitalised and production of collagen is triggered. Both of which result in reduced wrinkles, tightened pores and orange peel cellulite reduction.
WBC also triggers the growth of nails and hair.
The super vasoconstriction produced by WBC progressively leads to a noticeable vasodilation and a healthy glow to infused skin.

How Does It Works?
The Cryosauna uses liquid nitrogen to rapidly lower the air within the chamber which reduces the client’s skin temperature to 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of 2-3 minutes.
The skin reacts to the cold by sending messages to the brain that stimulates parts of the body. Part of the reaction releases endorphins and anti-inflammatory molecules around the body to aid recovery.
Is It Safe?
Yes, single person walk in chambers have been used safely for the last +30 years without any severe reaction recorded. Problems can only arise if a client steps into the chamber in wet clothing as the water will freeze.
The nitrogen cooling the chamber that makes up air is actually 78% of it, when inside the chamber the client breathes room air. A platform inside raises up so the client’s head is above the level of the cold gas, socks and gloves are provided to protect more temperature sensitive area, along with a mask to prevent inhalation of cold gas.
How Do I Feel After a Treatment?
Amazing – during each session the body releases endorphins which are hormones that make you feel good and energised. The mood enhancing effects from each session can last for several days.
How often should I have a treatment?
Depending on the condition of treatment you should initially have 5-10 treatments in relatively close succession to maximise results. After that you can take fewer treatments to maintain and improve results (e.g. once every week or two weeks).
