What are the hazards of whole body cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy centers themselves disclose all the contraindications pertaining to whole body cryotherapy, which include:
- High blood pressure or hypertension
- Skin infection
- Heart condition
- Raynaud’s Syndrome and other hypersensitivity to cold
If you have any doubt or concern, before going to your first appointment, consult your doctor and have him do a quick check-up.
The instructions for a perfect whole body cryotherapy experience
- Never go in alone
- Never wear anything wet
- Never exceed 3 minutes
- Never omit the protective clothing (socks, mittens, underwear, clogs)
- Never exceed the lowest temperature of -300 F (-200F, -240F, -260F are commonly used)
- Find a certified Cryotherapy Center. The certification according to physician’s standards (not just the assurance that the technicians know how to use the machine) is the guarantee of safety.
Before stepping into the cryochamber for your first whole body cryotherapy experience, make sure that all precautions have been taken by the team, follow all the instructions and relax.
Professionals disclose all the potential hazards and contraindications and are trained to identify risks. Avoid going if you feel too nervous. Ultimately, only undisclosed illness or health condition and ill-managed sessions present hazards. Go in when you feel certain it is safe and rigorously administered. Then, you will feel so good and energized that you will want to make it a health routine.
