Cryo Therapy is a safe and effective, scientifically proven, way to rapidly recover, rejuvenate, and restore the body to optimal, and beyond optimal, working condition. In addition to the restorative benefits from regular Cryo Therapy use, there are many other health and performance benefits...
Reduce total body inflammation
Burn up to 800 calories per session
Improves sleep quality
Elevates your mood
Decreases stretch marks
Accelerates and enhances brain function
While in our cryotherapy chamber, nitrogen rapidly lowers the skin’s surface temperature. A3’s cryo chamber averages around -120 Celsius (-185 F), for the 2 to 3 minutes per treatment. The brain reacts to skin temperature sensors by rapidly putting regulatory body functions into OVERDRIVE. As a result, anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins flood the bloodstream generating these positive health outcomes.
We provide thermal booties and it is required for everyone to wear compression undergarments such as compression underwear, sports bra, spandex shorts- No leggings. The goal is to expose as much as the skin’s surface as possible for optimal results.
YES! A3’s cryotherapy chamber uses dry, hyper-cooled air flowing in a circular fashion around your body. The result is maximum exposure to temperature sensors in the skin. This process does NOT freeze the skin, muscles, or organs. In fact, you only experience the sensation of being cold. This process tricks the body into thinking that the cold exposure is life-threatening (which it’s not), thus facilitating health outcomes and performance gains.
Cryotherapy is a dry cold with NO moisture and even tolerable to those who consider themselves cold-intolerant.
Cryotherapy has been used effectively in Europe and Asia for over thirty years. There are numerous clinical studies touting cryotherapy’s benefits. Professional athletes in the NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL and Crossfit have made cryotherapy an important part of their recovery treatment programs.
Yes. Your entire head remains exposed to the room and above the cryotherapy chamber. The door cannot lock and our staff is right next you through the entire process until your session has ended.
Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, the hormones that make us feel alert and energetic. The elevating effects from each session typically last for six to eight hours. Many of our clients also report improvements in their sleep quality after cryotherapy.
Depending upon the condition being treated, it should initially take five to ten treatments in close succession- every day or every other day, with maintenance treatments. However, many of our clients enjoy the health, pain management, and performance of cryotherapy so much, they prefer a session every day.
Cryotherapy is ideal for athletes seeking muscle recovery, people with chronic pain and inflammatory conditions, and those seeking weight loss, and skin rejuvenation. Cryotherapy is used post-surgery to accelerate healing and reduce pain without the side effects of pain medications. Younger clients, ages 12 to 17, can also use cryotherapy with parent’s consent.
You may exercise before or after a cryotherapy session. An advantage of cryotherapy over ice therapy is that tissues and muscle are not frozen. Ten minutes of light exercise post cryotherapy will induce more rapid vasodilation of the blood vessels and capillaries, and extend the period of pain relief. Many of our clients also exercise first, then come in for a cryotherapy session to ensure a quick recovery and minimize next-day muscle soreness.
