Yes, you may. The CryoUnit door is held by a magnet and never locked. You may step out at any time. The CryoUnit is open to the top, and your head is raised above the level of the upper rim of the cabin. Clients who suffer from claustrophobia report that they are comfortable in both devices.

No, you don’t. This procedure is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet. You can continue about your day and enjoy all of the benefits of cryotherapy immediately after your treatment.

Yes, as Our highest priority is its guests’ health. Cyrotherapy at Jernigan Chiropractic and Rehab has used over 30 years of research in Whole Body Cryotherapy in order to perfect the treatment process and provide the highest quality client experience. Before a session, We takes every guests’ blood pressure and asks several medical history questions. Additionally, We provides all of its guests with packages that contain cotton gloves and socks that protect the body’s more temperature-sensitive tissues such as hands and feet. Additionally, moisture-stripping wipes are provided to remove any sweat or lotion from our guests’ body before entering the CryoUnit. The nitrogen mist used to cool the CryoUnit is the same nitrogen that makes up 78% of the air we breathe. Cyrotherapy at Jernigan Chiropractic and Rehab Chill-Out Specialists adjust the height of the platform before every session to ensure all of our guests are able to breathe fresh air and speak during their session. For added safety, all treatment rooms are equipped with an oxygen monitor that will alert guests if oxygen levels ever fall below 15%.

A CryoUnit is a metal chamber that conceals your body from the neck down and is equipped with a door and a platform that adjusts to your height. The CryoUnit emits a nitrogen mist and creates cold air that quickly lowers your external skin’s temperature in less than 60 seconds. For two-and-half to three minutes, you slowly turn while in the cabin so that the subzero air evenly envelops your body. All CryoUnit that We uses are proudly made in the United States.

Developed in Japan in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Whole Body Cryotherapy has been used in Europe for more than three decades and in the United States for the last decade.

Medical journals detail the effects and subsequent benefits of whole body cryotherapy. In the United States, Whole Body Cryotherapy is considered a non-medical, holistic solution.

There are minimal risks associated with Whole Body Cryotherapy , given all of our Chill-Out Specialists have been certified to operate the CryoUnit. We provides all guests with packages that contain fresh cotton gloves and socks that protect the more temperature-sensitive extremities such as your hands and feet, which eliminates the risk of frost bite.

Additionally, moisture-stripping wipes are provided to remove any moisture or lotion from our guests’ body before entering the CryoUnit, which prevents rashes or freezer burn. Fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure by up to 10 points systolically can occur but reverses after the procedure is finished, as peripheral circulation returns to normal. Additionally, guests may experience some redness on their skin, but this will subside shortly after the treatment.

Yes, a distinct advantage of cryotherapy over an ice bath treatment is that the muscle tissues do not actually freeze and thus does not require time to rest. Ten minutes of light exercise post cryotherapy will actually induce more rapid vasodilation of the vessels and capillaries which increases blood flow to the tissues that need it most.

We recommends that you come seven consecutive days each month to experience the maximum recovery benefits. After those seven consecutive days have been completed, your treatments should be spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (once every week). The usage depends upon your reasons for utilizing Cryotherapy .

Your external skin temperature warms up within five minutes of exiting the CryoUnit. The immediate effects from each session typically last for six to eight hours. Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are the hormones that make you feel good and energetic. Most clients report a better night’s sleep after just one session!

Dry socks with a slipper/sandal for the feet, light cotton gloves for the hands and a dry undergarment. This is to protect your extremities from any potential damage from the extreme temperatures.

No, nitrogen is a friendly, non-toxic gas found in our own atmosphere; nitrogen is as common and safe as oxygen.

Yes, cold therapy has been proven to aid in recovery for over thirty years; the new benefits being found for cold therapy as an actual health treatment can be found in many medical journals. However, cold therapy is considered a holistic approach and is not covered by major insurance providers.*

No. Where an ice bath has direct contact with the skin and can be painful, cryotherapy is a dry, indirect contact. Due to the session only being three minutes max, the session is very tolerable. Towards the end of the session, you may get a ‘pins and needles’ sensation which disappears immediately after the treatment.

Cryotherapy is a dry, cold process, so upon checking into your appointment, you will enter a changing room and disrobe. We provides both gloves and socks for our clients to ensure no residual moisture is touching the skin. Gentlemen are required to wear undergarments, and everyone is required to wear the socks and gloves provided by us.

Cryotherapy is the science of using cold temperatures to safely lower your skin’s temperature to induce four main health benefits: Recovery, beauty, weight loss and overall health and wellness.

A °CRYO Chamber is where we conduct our whole body cryotherapy sessions. Once you step into a °CRYO Chamber, your body is briefly enveloped with cryogenically cooled air with temperatures reaching as low as -140°C for a maximum period of three minutes.

Cryotherapy treatments are not dangerous as the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin. A trained operator is always present during the treatment to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.

Most people can do a cryotherapy session. The people who cannot are anyone who has: (1) An unmanaged hypertension or a pacemaker, (2) has a history of or is being treated for cancer (3) has deep vein thrombosis, (4) a cold allergy or (5) is pregnant should not use cryotherapy. If you have questions about whether you have any risk, you should first ask your healthcare provider before using a °CRYO Chamber.

Yes! °CRYO treatments are comfortable. Describing the feeling of a °CRYO Chamber treatment is like standing naked in front of a freezer on a hot day.

Most of our treatments last for three minutes. However, some of our facial and other treatments can last up to 60 minutes depending on your requirements.

Absolutely. Our °CRYO Chamber’s have the option to have your head above the cold air and maintain contact with the outside. The °CRYO Chamber is also equipped with a door that is closed but not locked, so you are always in control while in the chamber.

You will be in your underwear and we will provide disposable ones (upon request) to put on as well. We will also provide mittens, socks and foot protection to protect your extremities from the cold.

There is no showering involved with cryotherapy. Our treatments are completely dry.

It depends on the results you are trying to achieve. We generally recommend 2-3 treatments per week to see results. °CRYO cannot guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results. However, we can tell you that you’ll likely feel great right away because after completing your first treatment, our clients usually experience a release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy and increased flexibility that can last for several hours or even days.
*Results may vary based on the individual.

While every °CRYO session can be beneficial, we recommend our clients consider one of our membership packages to receive maximum benefits. As a maintenance program, we suggest that the series be repeated every three months. Professional athletes will often have between 4-6 sessions per week to help achieve peak performance during intense traning periods.

°CRYO Glow Facials tighten the pores that appear on our face and in the process, can also tighten the skin. During a treatment, the surface temperature of your skin will drop to around 7-8 degrees Celsius, a process that in some cases increases the production of healthy collagen. The application of the °CRYO Glow Facial takes around 10 minutes. It is very comfortable and relaxing.
*Results may vary based on the individual.
