Get Froze Cryotherapy
Get Froze Cryotherapy located at the USKO Riverside Studio – Accelerate your recovery in just 2.5 to 3 minutes in a state-of-the-art cryochamber that surrounds your body (up to your neck) with -240F hyper-cooled air. Far superior to ice baths, Whole Body Cryotherapy flushes toxins and enriches red blood cells with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. Recovery time is shortened while your energy level is dramatically increased. Pain, inflammation, and injury recovery time is reduced.
1. Is it cold? Painful?
Yes, it is cold but not painful. The temperatures reach downward to -240F.
2. Do I have to wear anything specifically?
No, while in the Criomed cryochamber you will only be wearing socks, slippers and gloves, and men also wear briefs. This allows for 90% of your skin to be exposed to the hyper cool air. It is fine to leave your hair down and have on face lotion or makeup. We just ask that you do not apply lotion or any moisture to your skin an hour before your session. No jewelry or metals can be worn below the neck.
3. How long will my first appointment take?
The first appointment can take anywhere between 15-20 minutes. We like to fully educate our clients and help with any questions they may have. After the first appointment, sessions typically take 5-7 minutes.
4. Will I feel anything after my first session?
Because the effects of cryotherapy are different for every client, it will depend entirely on how your body reacts to the session. Typically, most clients feel an increase of energy and flexibility and a decrease of inflammation within the first few minutes or hours. Some clients feel the first impact the next morning after a sleep cycle. Many report noticing a deeper sleep and feeling reduced pain and inflammation the following 48-72 hours.
5. Is there anything dangerous about cryotherapy?
No, unless conducted by an untrained technician or if you have a contraindication. The cooling agent, nitrogen, is in 78% of the air we breathe every day. Advanced Cryotherapy’s certified technicians running your sessions are fully trained on safety and operational protocols and are capable of stopping the session if you should want to get out before your session is done. Likewise, there is no lock on the door of the JUKA cryochamber so you can step out at any time. Lastly, our Criomed cryochamber has a 3-minute auto shut off timer.
6. Is it safe to go that cold?
Yes, it is. The length of the session maxes at 3 minutes, and our JUKA cryochamber has a 3-minute auto shut off timer. This short period of time does not allow your body to reach hypothermia.
7. How often should I do cryotherapy?
This is very dependent on what you are using cryotherapy for. Most clients who are using it for overall health and wellness receive a cryotherapy session 1-2 times a week. Clients who have an injury, inflammation, and aches and pains receive cryotherapy sessions 2-4 times a week.
8. Are there any limitations on using cryotherapy?
Yes, a client under the age of 14 cannot use cryotherapy. The client cannot have high blood pressure, have or have had seizures, have a severe case of Raynaud’s syndrome, be pregnant, have any existing heart issue, have any major vascular issues, have clots or have had a brain aneurism, have any severe reaction to cold or have had a stroke. Other contraindications exist for which each client should fully read the waiver.
