A revolutionary method of cold therapy exposing the body to subzero temperatures ranging between -130 to -150 degrees. During the 3 minute treatment, the body is cooled through the use of liquid nitrogen mist that stimulates the skin’s receptors to constrict the blood vessels and rush blood back to the body’s core where it is oxygenated and enriched. Post treatment, blood vessels dilate and rush supercharged blood full of anti-inflammatory proteins, endorphins and oxygen activating all of the body’s natural healing ability. Whole Body Cryo (WBC) is fast and super effective.

Upon entering you will be greeted by one of our friendly “Freeze Therapists” who will ask you to fill out a new client questionnaire and waiver form. You will be directed to a dressing room where you can place your clothes and belongings and change into your comfy NC robe. Guys need to keep some underwear bottoms on, while for the girls underwear is optional (the more skin exposure the better). Next its time to step into our Cryosauna! Once you are inside and the door is closed, you will take off your robe and hand it over the side to the therapist. The session will begin with a burst of hyper-cooled air which will circulate around your body. The temperature will begin to drop rapidly and your body and brain will respond in some amazing ways! If this is your first time doing cryotherapy with us, the session will only last a little over 2 minutes, and the cold intensity will be less than that of our typical session. After the session is complete you will be handed your robe and escorted back to the dressing room. Enjoy the rush! We want every experience at Coastal Cryo to be a positive one. Book an appointment by calling in, visiting our website, facebook page or just by walking in to our clinic.
Anyone with who is pregnant, severe heart conditions has very high blood pressure, or has a cold allergy should not do Cryotherapy.
Think of doing Cryo like doing some vigorous exercise…chances are you don’t find going on a jog or lifting weights very comfortable, but you love the way you feel after and you are able to endure the challenge because you are mentally prepared for it! The fact is some people have a higher tolerance to the extreme cold than others. We have multiple different settings on our Cryo Sauna that can be tailored to your particular tolerance level- this is why your first session with us will always be shorter and less intense just to figure out what will be best for you moving forward. Doing Cryotherapy is nothing like doing an ice bath or even jumping into the ocean in winter (ouch!) so if you have done that before, you can expect this to be much easier!
Its your call! The only thing to consider is that we need your body and underwear (if applicable) to be DRY. If you are just coming in from having finished an intense workout and are still sweaty then we suggest drying off and ensuring you are completely dry before commencing your treatment. If doing before a workout expect to train like you never have before based on the energy you’re about to receive.
The great thing about Cryo is that most people notice some of the benefits right away, namely an energy boost, an endorphin rush, and even a better nights sleep! To fully realize the benefits of Cryo we encourage you to do 3 sessions across a 7 day window. Post this phase it would depend on your reason for use that would determine the volume of treatment we suggest. After the first month of consistency, most people notice the more dramatic benefits of the Cryotherapy.
Just a few minutes is all the time the body needs to fully respond to the cold exposure. The physiological response includes Vaso-constriction, the release of endorphins, and a drop in skin temperature of around 40 degrees. Being exposed to this level of cold for long periods of time would be dangerous, but as long as you are wearing socks and gloves, 3 minutes is completely safe and all that is necessary to promote the systemic benefit.
