Cryotherapy Treatment FAQ’s
What happens during a cryotherapy treatment?
At Cryoperformance, 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.
When was cryotherapy invented?
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.
What types of cryotherapy treatments do you provide?
We offer whole body cryotherapy in a cryo chamber and a more localised cryotherapy administered with a machine called a Penguin. This allows us to target areas suffering from specific injuries or ailments such as arthritis or cellulite. For specific session types, visit our online booking page.
I want to lose weight; will cryotherapy treatments help me?
Absolutely! A three-minute cryotherapy session will burn up to 800 calories, and it will boost your metabolism, so the effects are long lasting.
What if I don’t like it, can I get out?
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.
