Chill Out

At Absolute Zero, – our Whole Body Cryotherapy centre in Singapore – we make use of a cryotherapy chamber (which we call the CryoChamber) which cools dry air down to  a chilling -150°C. The patient stays inside the cryotherapy chamber for up to three minutes per session. None of your skin comes in direct contact with the liquid nitrogen at any point, so you don’t have to worry about getting frostbite from that!

What Happens During a Cryogenic Therapy Session?

You will be asked to strip down and step into the air-cooled chamber, which is chilled below -100 degrees Celsius.  And not to worry, claustrophobes! Your head will constantly remain outside while the chamber brings your body temperature down gradually.

The cooling of the body tissues serves to activate all sorts of regulatory reactions to bring you benefits like reduced pain, less muscle soreness, and it can even kick start your metabolism!
