Cryotherapy Frequently Asked Questions
Whole body and local cryotherapy are very safe. The vapor inside the cryosauna is ambient air that has been chilled with liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen is non-toxic and is heavier than air so nitrogen vapors remain below the rim of the cryosauna. Clients never dip their heads below the rim of the cryosauna during treatment.
The cryosauna door is always open–it does not ever lock and can easily be pushed open with minimal effort at any time during treatment. Clients may exit the cryosauna at any time during treatment if they become anxious or uncomfortable.
