Cryocure Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Who does Flotation Therapy work for?
Floating enthusiasts told The New York Times that anyone looking to “stretch their artistic, spiritual and even athletic boundaries” can benefit from floating. After reviewing participants’ reports regarding floating’s effects, researchers even concluded this:
“Many of the participants had been using a range of different methods to reduce pain, stress and other individual health issues prior to floating. Medicines, yoga, massage and physiotherapy were some of the treatments mentioned, and never had they so successfully been relieved from pain, tension, stress, etc.”
Those looking for more of a scientifically-supported reason to try floating will be happy to know it’s backed up by much ongoing reason. Although there’s still lots to learn regarding the physiological effects of sensory deprivation, floating is believed to potentially help alleviate all sorts of stress-related problems like:
- Mood related disorders and symptoms of depression or anxiety
- Addictions or symptoms of withdrawal
- Low immune function
- “Burnout” and frequent sick days among employees
- Chronic fatigue and low energy
- Jet lag
- Trouble focusing, restlessness, distractions or brain-fog
- Chronic pain and muscle tension, often tied to high stress levels
- Difficulty sleeping or insomnia
Q. Is it dangerous?
No. CryoCure offers a safe environment with a knowledgeable staff to help you along your journey. The tubs aren't deep enough for any potential drowning issues, and if there are any sources of discomfort, you will always be able to contact our CryoCure staff immediately.
Q. Is it comfortable?
At first it can be uncomfortable because of the new experience, but all it takes is just a bit of deep breathing and focus to begin floating into a deep sleep or relaxation.
Q. How long does it take?
You can choose your session time. We offer 60 minute or 90 mins floats - and you can add additional 30 minutes to your sessions as well.
Q. What do I wear?
Your flotation therapy session is completely private, so you may choose to wear your bathing suit, underwear, or nothing at all. The choice is yours and no one will interrupt you.
Q. Do I take a shower before or after the treatment?
You can shower before and after as you wish - your personal shower room is connected to your private session. Most people shower after since the magnesium sulfate has a tendency to corrode your clothing, so it is highly recommended to shower after your session.
