CRYO FACT vs CRYO FICTION
What is cryotherapy? Is it safe?
Yes, whole body cryotherapy is safe. Don’t be fooled by claims that state whole body cryotherapy is a liquid nitrogen bath… it is NOT. The fact is, you are cooled by nitrogen VAPOR that surrounds the body.
Is cryotherapy the same as cryogenics?
No, cryotherapy is not what Walt Disney and Michael Jackson wanted to do to preserve their bodies after death. Cryotherapy is a refreshing, reinvigorating experience enjoyed by people in all walks of life. It is NOT cryogenic therapy….
If I do a whole body cryotherapy session will I lose weight?
Some people claim that they have experienced weight loss after multiple sessions.

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY IS NOT A GLORIFIED ICE BATH
It is not a more expensive ice bath. It is not an ice bath at all. It doesn’t involve water submersion, it doesn’t involve cooling the soft tissue, it is not painful and miserable and hated by many. More broadly – an ice bath is pretty good at decreasing inflammation. But aside from decreasing inflammation temporarily and therefore relieving SOME pain in the muscles, the ice bath offers no other benefits. (It does offer TONS of issues though – not the least of which is staph infection, and hygienic issues).
The healing of cryotherapy does not occur in those few minutes of the treatment. The 2-3 minutes of whole body cryotherapy are simply a stimulus.
First of all Whole Body Cryotherapy does not hurt like an ice bath. Cryo is not even uncomfortable for most folks. It may be for some (everyone’s cold tolerance is different) – but so is soreness, pain, inflammation, overweight, metabolic syndrome, arthritis and the slew of other reasons people seek help here. Remember, it’s only 2-3 minutes. And if you need a marker to identify just how uncomfortable it is or isn’t: everyone we have treated who has also sat in a vat of ice water will tell you it’s nowhere near as uncomfortable as that.
Whole body Cryotherapy doesn’t penetrate the skin’s surface more than 1/2mm into the skin. It just gets the skin’s cold receptors cold – sending a stimulus to the brain and causing some pretty wonderful reactions. One of those is the constriction of the peripheral arteries which sends blood directly to the core (gotta protect the important organs, the body decides). So body core temperature can be elevated, not decreased. While there, the blood picks up more nutrients, faster, than it normally would. The session stops and your body is reintroduced into room temperature environment, causing those constricted little blood passageways to dilate tremendously (this is why we see, sometimes, a temporary increase in blood pressure systolically). What happens next is the body’s amazing ability to heal itself. Systems check in the brain: what hurts, what’s not working, where is their inflammation, what need repair? Check. Sending blood. This newly oxidized and nutrient packed blood is delivered where it’s needed most.
CRYO @ SNJ FITNESS
Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness that dates back to ancient civilizations. Whole body cryotherapy is the modern experience which stimulates the same rejuvenating and refreshing benefits at a whole new level of cold — in just three minutes.
Reaching temperatures as low as -120 Celsius (-184ºF), whole body cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. Cryotherapy participants say they experience a multitude of benefits and is the driving force behind a new lifestyle of wellness.
How It Works
The whole body cryosauna fills with nitrogen vapor to drop the ambient temperature to a range of -90 Celsius (-130ºF) to -120 Celsius (-184ºF). This temporary dry chill cues your evolutionary bio-responses to extreme cold. A single three-minute refreshing session promotes the natural healing process.
SKIN AND BEAUTY
The ultra-cooled environment of the Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment activates receptors deep within the skin telling the body to increase production of collagen. This increase in collagen production will leave your skin smoother, firmer and tighter and can also diminish the appearance of cellulite and varicose & spider veins. After a regimen of treatments, clients notice a more evened and balanced skin tone, renewed skin elasticity and overall increased skin health & appearance.

Due to the higher concentration of oxygen and bodily nutrients after a whole body cryotherapy treatment, the body’s muscles, ligaments and tendons will absorb and utilize the purified and ultra-concentrated environment to boost metabolic activity and recovery in the system. Not only will your muscles recover faster and more efficiently, but your body will also rid itself of the detrimental bi-products of intense muscle usage resulting in less pain, more range-of-motion, and recovery back to its most efficient state.
