The body is surrounded by hyper-cooled air at an average temperature of -222 F for 2 to 3 minutes. Cold sensors in the skin send a signal to the brain which causes blood to rush to the body's core. As blood is circulated through the core, toxins are flushed out and blood becomes enriched with oxygen and all the necessary enzymes and nutrients.
When the session ends, the oxygenated nutrient and enzyme enriched blood rushes through the body accelerating the natural recovery process. The release of endorphins, metabolic rate, and production of collagen are accelerated.
Recovery time is shortened, energy level is dramatically increased, and the endorphin release aids the body in dealing with pain and inflammation. The increase in metabolic rate allows the body to burn more calories and the production of collagen improves whole body skin elasticity and smoothness. Just 3 minutes for whole body recovery.
Nitrogen is in the very air we breathe. It is a non-toxic gas, and only dangerous when it displaces oxygen. The user has their head out of the chamber and can breathe normally. Our adjustable foam foot pads make it so that the chamber fits users of any size. There is also an oxygen sensor near the location of the user’s head to ensure there is proper air quality in the headspace.
Since the chamber reaches such a low temperature, some may fear getting stuck or frozen. Yet, the nitrogen gas produces a dry cold. The user does not get wet in the process. There will not be frozen droplets on the body?
Owners of a cryotherapy chamber must rent liquid nitrogen dewars that sometimes get snowy, which is normal. The substance may even cover a valve. We advise against touching it as an added precaution.
Once in a while there is an outward flow of the gas, making a hissing sound. Though there is pressure inside liquid nitrogen dewars, these tanks will surely not blow up!
Frostbite will not occur as long as users wear the correct protective wear: gloves and boots to cover the hands and feet. For further explanation, visit the following brief blog post: Frostbite Prevention during Cryotherapy
Whole body cryotherapy is the process of immersing one’s body in sub-arctic temperatures for a few minutes at a time. It is mainly used for reduced inflammation, faster recovery, and increased collagen production. Some may be intimidated by the XR cryo chamber itself. We’re here to put those fears to rest. At Cryo Innovations, SAFETY is our top priority.
There are claims about cryotherapy that are not true. If you are uncertain about the process or want to learn more, read our blog post: Cryotherapy Fact vs Fiction.
