Do I need to shower before or after?
No, this is a dry cold and your skin remains dry. The treatment will take just 3 minutes.
What is the best frequency?
No sooner than four hours, not longer than 48 hours for athletes during training and competition. Many clients prefer one or two sessions per week for maintenance.
Why haven’t I heard more about cryotherapy?
Extreme cold has been used to treat inflammation for centuries – think of athletes icing sore muscles. Modern applications to treat rheumatoid arthritis began during the 1970s in Japan. Several clinical studies have been conducted in Europe, where the practice is more common.
Is the nitrogen vapor safe?
The vapor is composed of the same nitrogen that is in the air we breathe. The heavier nitrogen vapor remains inside the chamber, so you breathe the air in the room.
What if I have claustrophobia?
Your head remains outside the chamber, and you can exit at any time.
