CRYOLAB'S CRYO CHAMBER
THE CRYOLABS CRYOTHERAPY CHAMBER...
consists of two separate rooms the first, the pre-chamber, is for acclimatization with an average temperature of – 65 to – 75C which prepares the body for the next stage. The pre-chamber leads into the second and main treatment chamber cooled to an operating temperature of – 135C. This is the proven optimum temperature for beneficial therapeutic use..
A typical Cryotherapy treatment lasts approximately 3.5 minutes with 30 seconds being spent in the pre-chamber at – 65 to – 75C for acclimatization and the balance in the main chamber at -135C. A trained member of staff observes each and every session and the chambers are wired for sound and video.
Despite the extreme low temperatures due to the dry air the environment is not unpleasant and is much more comfortable
than, for example, physical immersion in an ice bath where the temperature range is only 2C to 5C!
