Frequently asked questions
What's the first step I need to take?
Is there anything dangerous about cryotherapy?
How does the cryochamber get that cold?
Is it safe to go that cold?
Yes, it is. The length of the session maxes at 3 minutes. This short period of time does not allow your body to reach hypothermia.
Where do I get Nitorgen from?
How long is the process from start to finish?
Each cryotherapy session will end at the 3:00 mark no matter what. We suggest that beginners go for a maximum of 2:00/2:30 to have their first experience shorter and to get used to the cold.
Are there any limitations on using cryotherapy?
Since it is unregulated there are no age limitations or strict guidelines but we suggest limiting the age to 13 and above for Whole Body Cryotherapy. The client should not have high blood pressure, have or have had seizures, have a severe case of Raynaud’s syndrome, be pregnant, have any existing heart issue, have any major vascular issues, have clots or have had a brain aneurism, have any severe reaction to cold or have had a stroke. Other contraindications exist for which each client should fully read the waiver of their respective provider.
Should my machine have a lift?
Only if you are not able to enter and exit at ground level. All machines requiring the use of lift blocks or don’t allow you to enter and exit at ground level pose a risk to your clients entering and exiting the chamber and automatically increase your insurance rates. When a customer is told to step out of a chamber after the doors have opened, not only is this view blocked briefly due to the cold vapors leaving, but these vapor cause precipitation (wetness). When the cold air mixes with room temperature precipitation on steps causes a slick surface. As a result, your client is more prone to slipping and falling. All reputable insurance companies see this as a risk and raise your insurance. Having a lift and/or allowing your client to enter and exit at ground level gives you a credit on insurance ultimately lowering your rates.
Are there financing options for the equipment?
Absolutely! We work with the top broker in the industry and our clients have access to rates up to 2% lower than everyone else on the market due to the overwhelming success of CryoUSA clients when compared to the competition.

What modalities do you recommend starting with?
Typical recommendation is at least one of the large modalities, which we consider cryotherapy or red light therapy. From here we recommend 2-3 smaller modalities and one of these always being NormaTec compression therapy. However, as the only distributor who tests everything we sell in our retail center, we are happy to learn about your vision and make the proper recommendation from there.
