Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can I expect results?
Most clients feel great right away because after completing the first treatment you will experience the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, decreased inflammation, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days. Many clients notice improved sleep and a decrease in pain. Improvements in skin texture and reduction in cellulite and weight loss will take longer to see results and may require a series of treatments for maximum results.
Is it safe?
Yes, whole body cryotherapy is safe. The fact is, you are cooled by nitrogen VAPOR that surrounds the body. Never use cryotherapy if operated by an untrained staff member or if you have a contraindication.
If I do a whole body cryotherapy session will I lose weight?
Some people claim that they have experienced weight loss after multiple sessions. Try it! Let us know what your experience is!
Is it comfortable?
The treatment is of short duration (2 to 3 minutes), and the cold air does not contain any moisture, nor there is any air current, so it is very tolerable. Towards the end of the treatment, you may get pins and needles sensation which disappears immediately after the treatment.
How long does it take?
Treatments take between 2 and 3 minutes.
I am claustrophobic. Can I still use the cryochamber?
Yes. Because the cryochamber is open at the top and adjusted to fit the height of the client, your head and neck are always above the opening so you are not totally enveloped. Also, the cryochamber has a door that is closed but not locked so you always have control over being in the chamber.
What do I wear?
Because of the very low temperatures, all jewelry needs to be removed before entering the cryochamber. Clients are required to wear cotton or wool foot and hand protection that we provide plus either cotton underwear (for men) or a bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing is removed.
Is one treatment enough?
While every Lux Cryo session is beneficial and you’ll feel immediate results, research has shown that you will experience improved and cumulative benefits with a minimum of 10 sessions, within a two or three week period. After that you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (once or twice a week).
Can I catch a cold because of full body cryotherapy?
No. Actually, stimulation of the immune system can help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.
