ColdRush Cryotherapy Facts Questions and Answers
ColdRush Cryotherapy FAQs
The first step to understanding cryotherapy treatment is to answer any questions you have regarding the process, how it works and how it can help you for better health.
Q: What is Cryotherapy?
- A: It is a full body cold treatment that can help with a variety of health issues. Refer to our about page for detailed information.
Q: Is Cryotherapy for me?
- A: With its wide range of benefits, we believe almost anyone could profit from use while not putting any chemicals into your body. We suggest that you come in and speak with one of our certified technicians about how ColdRush Cryotherapy can help you.
Q: How cold is it/does it hurt?
- A: Unlike an ice bath or walk in the Arctic, this is a “dry cold” treatment. Temperatures will reach 225 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit) or even colder based on your session. Some users say they feel “tingly” toward the end of their time in the chamber, but it is not painful.
Q: What am I supposed to wear?
- A: Dress comfortably and dry before your session. You’ll be changing into our robe, gloves, and socks, so no need to bring anything. Men are required to wear briefs, while women can be completely undressed or wear a sports bra and undergarments as long as there are no metal clasps. If you have jewelry or piercings below the neck, they must be removed or covered with tape before your session.
Q: How long does it take?
- A: The sessions only last for three minutes, but can be shorter if you request. The total appointment time can vary, but on average it will take under ten minutes.
Q: Do I need to do anything after my session?
- A: Nope! Usually you will get an energy burst, similar to what you’d have after a great workout, and will go right back to work/home! Most users do get the “munchies” as well from the big calorie burn, so we suggest having a healthy snack after your appointment.
Q: How often can I or should I do these sessions?
- A: As a member, you will have unlimited access and the chamber will be available to you every day! We’ve found that for the most effective treatment, two to four times per week are common. If your goal is to reduce chronic pain, you may need the cumulative effect you get with 3-5 treatments a week. If you want to accelerate your recovery from physical training, workouts, and races, you may want back to back sessions to prep for, and recover from, the exertion. Remember, the session will do wonders to reduce inflammation (including Lactic acid buildup) associated with physical performance.
