How does the Cryosauna work?
The Cryosauna is cooled using liquid nitrogen to expose the body to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -240 F). Clients are not in direct contact with the gas. The client’s skin surface temperature is lowered by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of 2-3 minutes. The core body temperature remains unchanged throughout the process, however, it may drop slightly afterwards.
Is Cryosauna safe and tested?
Yes, it’s been used in Asia and Europe for over 30 years and in the United States for almost 10. A trained operator is always present during your treatment to control the temperature and monitor your comfort and safety. Please visit our research and latest talk sections for more information.
Is one treatment enough?
Many clients experience noticeable differences after just one treatment, but optimal results typically occur when 10 sessions are completed within your first 1-3 weeks.
After the initial session, the frequency can vary depending on the individual and the reason for seeking treatment. Dr. Gray and her staff will work with you on a treatment plan to match your goals.
How soon can I expect results?
Many clients feel great after the first treatment because of the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator. This lift may last for several hours to several days. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days. Metabolism can be boosted for up to 48 hours. Changes in skin texture and reduction in cellulite and weight loss will take longer to see results and may require a series of treatments for maximum results.
How does Cryosauna help oxidative stress?
Treatments in the Cryosauna will help promote the production of anti-oxidants which fight the free radicals and the damage they cause.
What do I wear?
Women can be nude (bra optional, but no underwire); men wear their underwear. It’s an option to wear minimal clothing such as bathing suits or undergarments, but the effects are greater if more skin surface is exposed. We provide a robe, gloves, socks and slippers to protect the extremities.
