Frequently Asked Questions

How will I feel after the treatment?

Your external skin temperature warms up within five minutes of exiting the cryosauna.The immediate effects from each session typically last for six to eight hours. cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. Most clients report a better night of sleep after just one session. 

Is Cryotherapy Safe?

Yes, it is both safe and effective for a staggering variety of conditions and goals.Nitrogen is a non-toxic gas that makes up about 75% of the air we breathe. However, breathing pure nitrogen could cause fainting due to the lack of oxygen.To prevent this from happening, the cryosauna is designed to keep the patient’s head above the chamber and patients are instructed to breathe up room air. .

Is Cryotherapy Comfortable?

 Where an ice bath has direct contact with the skin and can be painful, cryotherapy is a dry, indirect contact. Due to the session only being a maximum of three minutes, the session is very tolerable.Towards the end of the session you may get a ‘pins and needles’ sensation but this disappears once the session ends. 

Is cryotherapy a proven recovery session?

 Yes. Cryotherapy has been around for decades and used in Europe and Asia for almost thirty years. In fact, over the past seven years more than two million sessions have been completed in Europe using our "Juka Cryosauna". CRYOMEDSPA offers the absolute best cryotherapy equipment available.
