How does whole-body Cryotherapy work?

In the extreme cold conditions of a Whole Body Cryotherapy chamber, the body has physiological responses to exposure that is triggered by the sudden decrease in skin temperature. The body’s core temperature is normally between 36-37°C and will always attempt to maintain this temperature. When the brain receives signals registering the extreme low temperature in a Whole Body Cryotherapy chamber, it recognises the impossibility of maintaining the core temperature if normal blood circulation is maintained in the outer layers of the skin. Receptors below the surface of the skin then direct the body’s nervous system to carry out a process called vasoconstriction – a narrowing of the arteries and blood vessels.

At the same time, blood is retained in the body’s core and is flushed through the normal cycle and becomes enriched with oxygen, enzyme and nutrients as well as receiving an influx of hormones via the body’s endocrine system.

Once the brain identifies that a “normal temperature’ is reached, having exited the Whole Body Cryotherapy chamber, the reverse process called vasodilation then returns the now enriched blood from the core to the extremities. This process coupled with the release of hormones provide for a rush of endorphins, promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity in the patient.

FAQ

Is it cold? Painful?
  • Yes, it is cold but not painful. The temperatures drop to -120 degrees Celsius

What should I wear?
  • Men recommended: (swimsuit or shorts, T-shirt, socks, and gym shoes)

  • Women recommended: (swimsuit or shorts and top, socks
    and gym shoes)

  • This allows for 90% of your skin to be exposed to the hyper cool air

  • Please do not apply lotion or any moisture to your skin an hour before your session

How long will it take?
  • The cryotherapy sessions last for a maximum of three minutes, followed by a Normatec Compression therapy massage of 10 minutes

Do I have to do anything specifically after my session? Is there anything should I avoid?
  • No, there is nothing you have to avoid and nothing you should do after your session. Exposure to extreme cold temperatures warms the muscle tissue. This allows our clients to continue their normal tasks throughout the day, typically with more energy

Is there anything dangerous about cryotherapy?
  • Cryotherapy is safe if the session is conducted by a trained technician, like the members of the Cryozone team who are fully trained on safety and operational protocols. Sessions last for a maximum of three minutes and you can step out at any time
