FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In a cryo arctic chamber treatment, you will step into a purpose-built chamber which will surround your whole body. This chamber exposes your body to -140 degrees for up to three minutes. During this time, blood flow is removed from your skin and transported to your vital organs to provide a range of health benefits.
Cryotherapy has been around since 1978 when it was first used in Japan to treat a range of chronic illnesses. It’s use then became popular in Europe followed by America and now Australia within the last ten years.
We offer whole body cryotherapy in the Cryo Arctic™ chamber and a more localised cryotherapy administered with a machine called a Cryo Penguin™. We also have the Cryo T-Shock™, which we use for fat freezing.
Absolutely! A three-minute cryotherapy session will burn up to 800 calories, and it will boost your metabolism, so the effects are long lasting.
You can get out of the chamber at any time, although the closer you can stay to three minutes the more benefit. Doors don’t lock, the cryotherapy chamber automatically turns off after three minutes, and all treatments are fully supervised so you’re completely safe at all times.
You'll receive a customised treatment plan based on your goals.
We provide a garment for you to wear during the cryo arctic chamber session, so you don’t need to bring a thing. For Penguin and T-Shock treatments, wear something comfortable and appropriate for the area being treated.
Each whole body cryotherapy session lasts a maximum of three minutes. Penguin and TShock treatment times vary depending on the treatment and the area being treated.
No. Cryotherapy may cause some slight discomfort as parts of your body are very cold, but it isn’t painful.
