What to Expect

Initial Consultation:

● Identify your objective and discuss medical history to ensure suitability for undertaking treatment. 

● Address any concerns you may have.

● Discuss your optimal time and temperature in the cryochamber.

Before attending your whole body cryotherapy session we recommend you drink more water than usual to aid in the detoxification process.

What to wear.png
  • Once ready, you’ll wait outside the chamber room until a minute or so before your session starts 

  • Anna will welcome you into the chamber room to queue up your chamber music (if applicable) & ensure you’re wearing the correct attire 

  • Once the previous client has come out of the chamber, you’ll de-robe and enter ready for your treatment. 

  • Anna will check on your progress via a microphone linked to the chamber and will also remind you of the time remaining at 1 minute intervals and again at 30 seconds. 

  • You can leave the chamber room at any time just by pushing the door. 

  • Once your time is up, you’ll exit the chamber and immediately be handed your robe. 

  • You’ll be shown to the post-treatment room to change.

Post Treatment:

  • All clients are recommended to engage in 5 to 10 minutes of light exercise post-cryotherapy treatment. This will stabilize your body’s temperature as well as promote vasodilation (expansion of the body’s blood vessels). Movement will induce more rapid vasodilatation of the vessels and capillaries and can extend the period of analgesia as well as feelings of well being. 

  • Cryotherapy reduces inflammation + activates detoxification. Some clients may experience very mild flu-like symptoms 1 – 2 days after treatment. This is a good sign! Your body is shedding toxins & inflammation.

  • Drink more water than usual to aid the detoxification process.

  • Enjoy a rejuvenating deep sleep that night, reduced pain, improved mobility and all-round good mood!

​The benefits of whole-body cryotherapy are bountiful as part of a healthy lifestyle and complement traditional treatments such as physio, chiropractice and osteopathy.
