The Whole Body CryoChamber is a single-person device which envelopes a patient’s body while keeping the head and neck area exposed to room air above the device. The device can reach temperatures of about -300 degrees F. The Whole Body CryocChamber is equipped with numerous safety features and doors are never locked, which allows clients to stop treatment instantaneously at any time. The dress code during treatment is minimal, as maximum skin exposure to the cold air is desired:
- Robe (removed during treatment)
- Socks, Slippers
- Underwear (bottoms)
We supply you with a robe, socks, slippers and gloves when you arrive for your treatment. We have dressing rooms where you will change and keep your personal items. All jewelry must be removed before entering the CryoChamber.

Whole Body Cryotherapy
With Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures, triggering a systemic anti-inflammatory response. The client is placed in Cryotherapy Chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes which lowers the client’s skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors without damaging any tissue.
This modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted over the last two decades have established WBC as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders and injuries. The accelerated production of collagen improves skin elasticity and texture, reversing skin aging and the appearance of cellulite. WBC boosts the body’s metabolic rate, accelerating weight loss outcomes. Professional athletes have discovered WBC as a powerful treatment to decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance. Although Whole Body Cryotherapy originated in Japan, it was a group of Polish scientists who took the idea and made Whole Body Cryotherapy the physical therapy it is today. The Olympic rehabilitation center in Spala, Poland opened in May 2000 and has been used as a training and injury rehabilitation center for many sporting bodies.
The Cryochamber is cooled with liquid nitrogen, usually to a temperature of −110°C to −150°C (−166°F to −238°F).
In the Cryochamber, the patient is protected from acute frostbite with socks, gloves, and slippers. Clothing worn during the treatment is minimal: for women clothing is optional while for men genitals have to be covered with cotton underwear. During treatment the average skin temperature drops to 10°C (50°F), while the coldest skin temperature can be 5°C (41°F). The core body temperature remains unchanged during the treatment, however it may drop slightly afterwards. Therapy triggers the release of endorphins which induce analgesia (immediate pain relief).
Patients report that the experience is invigorating and improves a variety of conditions such as psychological stress, insomnia, rheumatism, muscle and joint pain, fibromyalgia, itching, and psoriasis. The immediate effect of skin cooling and analgesia lasts for 5 minutes, but the release of endorphins can have a lasting effect, where the pains and signs of inflammation as found in blood tests remain suppressed for weeks. The effects of extreme cold and endorphin release are scientifically studied. Additionally, there is a 500-800 calorie after-burn associated with the body warming itself up, thus jump-starting the metabolism helping reach weight-loss goals.
