Cryotherapy Benefits & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We want you to be happy with your decision and if you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to call.
Cryotherapy Benefits at Cryocure
Exposure to an extreme cold temperature stimulates an anti-inflammatory response and results in constriction of the blood vessels. This response leads to regeneration and repair of the tissue and reduction of the pain, thus helping with many conditions, such as:
- rheumatoid arthritis
- muscles soreness
- stiffness, and spasms
- migraines and headache
- post-surgical recovery
Post-workout cryotherapy also accelerates muscles recovery and improves athletic performance by substantially reduces the time muscles need to recover.
IMMUNE SYSTEM, ENERGY AND MENTAL HEALTH
Cryotherapy also boosts the body’s Leptin levels - which has a proven connection to an improvement in immune function. The theory behind it is simple: rapid exposure to extreme temperatures triggers the Hypothalamus to switch on anti-inflammatory processes within the body in a safe and effective way. By tricking the body into thinking that it is in “survival mode” – the regular immune processes within the body are increased. By promoting circulation of oxygen enriched blood, full body cryotherapy helps support immune and endocrine system, and elevate testosterone levels in men.
Cryotherapy can also increase your energy levels, which is believed to be connected to the release of Catecholamines – adrenaline and noradrenaline – as well as various other neuropeptides in reaction to the below-freezing temperatures that the body is exposed to. These released chemicals induce a sense of euphoria and leaves you with a positive outlook and energy to burn for up to 8 hours.
These same “euphoric” endorphins have been known to improve concentration, improve sleep and aid in the treatment of depression and other mental health ailments.
YOUR ULTIMATE WEIGHT-LOSS PARTNER & WELLNESS GURU
A healthy diet and steady workouts are the most crucial factors in achieving successful weight-loss, but an increase in metabolism is essential for permanent results. Cryotherapy aids your metabolism. An ice water immersion has been shown to raise an individual’s metabolic rate by as much as 300%, while other forms of Cryotherapy can offer similar success rates and results.
With repeated full body cryotherapy treatments, you will overcome weight-loss plateaus and stimulate your metabolism – which influences your caloric burn. When the outer layer of your skin is shocked with extremely cold temperatures, your body responds by speeding up to literally “warm you up”.
That increased speed translates to a boost in your metabolism and “burns” calories as you return to your normal warmer body temperature.This accelerated metabolism lasts for approximately 5-8 hours after the treatment and can burn an additional 500-800 calories during that time, resulting in accelerated weight-loss.
BEAUTY AND ANTI-AGING,LEAVE REVITALIZED & WATCH YOUR BODY TRANSFORM
Thanks to innovations in cryotherapy youthful results can now be achieved with non-invasive procedures.
The effects cryotherapy can produce on the outside are as remarkable as those on the inside. The improvement of oxygen and nutrient-enriched blood flow around the body along with the removal of toxins near the surface of the skin can have a dramatic effect on your body’s exterior. Stimulation of collagen production boosts the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the body resulting in:
- improvement of many skin conditions including psoriasis, acne and blemishes
- minimization of pores and improvement in skin tone
- anti-aging effects
- cellulite reduction and tightening of the skin
- hair and nails health

Cryocure Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does the full body cryotherapy work?
As you enter the cryochamber, the sudden drop in heat stimulates the temperature receptors, promoting the brain to transmit massages throughout the body resulting in vasoconstriction and rushing of the blood from the extremities to the core of the body, where it oxygenates and enriches with nutrients. When you exit the chamber blood is now pumped vigorously around the body, which in turn enhances the oxygen supply and removal of the toxins. The cold also triggers the nervous system to release feel-good endorphyns plus the body natural anti-inflammatory reaction to extreme cold results in a pain reduction.
Q. Is it dangerous?
No. CryoCure offers world’s most advanced cryochamber. The liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin, and it is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (actually 78% of it). In either type of chamber, a person breathes room-air. For added safety, chambers are equipped with an oxygen monitor. A trained operator is always present during the treatment so to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.
Q. Is it comfortable?
The treatment is of short duration (1.5 to 3 minutes), and the cold air does not contain any moisture, nor there is any air current, so it is very tolerable. Towards the end of the treatment, you may get pins and needles sensation which disappears immediately after the treatment.
Q. How long does it take?
Treatments usually take between 1.5 and 3 minutes. After exiting the cryochamber, you warm up by doing short, light cardiovascular exercise, like riding a bike.
Q. I am claustrophobic. Can I still use the cryochamber?
Yes. Because the cryochamber is open at the top and adjusted to fit the height of the client, your head and neck are always above the opening so you are not totally enveloped. Also, the cryochamber has a door that is closed but not locked so you always have control over being in the chamber.
Q. What do I wear?
Because of the very low temperatures, all jewelry need to be removed before entering the cryochamber. Clients are required to wear cotton or wool foot and hand protection plus either cotton underwear (for men) or a bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing is removed.
Q. Do I take a shower before or after the treatment?
No. The treatment is completely dry.
Q. How soon can I expect results?
You’ll feel great right away because after completing your first treatment you will experience the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that will last for several hours. 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. 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.
Q. Is one treatment enough?
While every CryoCure session is beneficial and you’ll feel immediate results, research has shown that you will experience improved and cumulative benefits with a minimum of 10 sessions, within a two or three week period. (Professional athletes will often have up to two sessions a day to help achieve peak performance). After that you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (e.g. once or twice a week)
Q. Can I catch a cold because of full body cryotherapy?
No, you can’t. Quite opposite, the stimulation of the immune system can help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.
