What do I wear for my session?

We provide our clients with the appropriate comfortable attire recommended for whole body cryotherapy. This will be dry socks, cryo slippers and gloves. A robe is provided to wear once you have changed and make your way to the CryoCabin. Men remain in their boxers/briefs. Women remain in their undergarments but bras should be removed especially if they have metal underwired.

What must I not wear for my session?

Please remove all jewellery/piercings. Your changing room will be locked whilst your session is running so your valuables are safe. You must be dry and not have wet hair or wet clothing.

When will I see/feel results?

After your session at Elite Cryo Studio you will instantly feel more alive, stronger and energetic. Whole Body Cryotherapy provides faster healing of athletic injuries and reduces levels of lactic acid in blood almost immediately to normal levels.

Will I feel claustrophobic in the CryoCabin?

A trained CryoCabin operator will stay with you throughout the entire session. The door on the CryoCabin does not lock so if at any point you feel uncomfortable you can open the door from inside the cabin and the session stops automatically. We will always ensure your head is fully above the cabin so you can see us and we can see you at all times. Your head & hands will be outside of the cabin. If you feel uncomfortable at any stage please let us know so we can stop the session immediately.
