A Quick Comparison of Cryoness Cryosauna vs Cryo Arctic

Whole body cryotherapy has become famous for its therapeutic benefits as well as aesthetic ones. Celebrities and athletes are embracing this treatment option, accelerating the growth of the cryotherapy industry. 

The cryoness is a cryosauna machine while the cryo arctic is a cryochamber. While the idea is still the same, they both have profound differences. Here is a quick comparison of Cryoness Cryosauna vs Cryo Arctic.

Cryoness cryosauna Overview

This cryotherapy machine is a whole body cryosauna machine and is a product of Cryoness Devices.1 It is a great option for business owners looking to get into the cryotherapy business without incurring high equipment costs.

Cryo arctic overview

This full body cryo chamber is a product of CRYO Science2 and uses state of the art technology to simplify cryotherapy. This makes it a great option for business owners looking for an easy-to-operate cryotherapy machine.  

Cryoness Cryosauna vs Cryo Arctic features comparison

Size

Both machines can only accommodate one user at a time but the Cryo arctic is more spacious. This extra room allows the client to move around the chamber freely without feeling like they are in an enclosed space. 

The cryoness sauna, on the other hand, is smaller in size making it easy to integrate onto an existing business with minimal space. It also has a weight limit of 500lbs and can accommodate people with a height of 6’7”.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

The cryo arctic and the cryoness cryosauna are both designed for full-body cryotherapy. However, the Cryo arctic comes with an adjustable window that makes it possible to offer either full or partial body cryotherapy. This makes it perfect for a business setting as it gives clients alternatives to pick from.

The cryoness cryosauna comes with a touch screen display that makes the whole cryotherapy experience more interactive.

Safety

Both machines have safety features in place. The cryoness cryosauna has an automatic circulation system that ensures the cryo cabin is cool before a session begins. It also comes with a nitrogen exhaust system that gets rid of leftover nitrogen from the capsule.

The Cryo arctic machine ensures that users only come into contact with breathable air and not the nitrogen. It also has a smart tech feature that’s Wi-Fi enabled and allows operators to provide technical assistance when needed.

Design

Both machines provide you with customizable options and are easy to assemble. The cryoness cryosauna has an efficient and innovative design with a modern touch to it while the cryo arctic is more luxurious. It comes with a premium sound system that allows a user to listen to their favorite jams while still in touch with the operator.

Cryoness Cryosauna vs Cryo Arctic; which one is the best option for your business?

The Cryo Arctic would be a great option for a business owner using a standalone business model while the cryoness cryosauna is easily Integretable into an existing business due to its ergonomic design. Both machines have a 2 year warranty.

What’s Your Cryotherapy Chamber Worth?

Is your Cryo a Porshe…or a Toyota?

Have you ever thought about what your cryotherapy chamber is actually worth? If your business simply did not work and you had to sell your chamber how much of your investment could you recover? While this is not a comfortable subject it is a necessary one. What if your cryotherapy business fails?

What's your cryotherapy chamber worth?  Logo with frost on it.
What’s your cryotherapy chamber worth?

Do you have an asset or liability?

Spending 40 to 100 thousand dollars on equipment is a big decision. When your business is doing great and you can sell a lot of cryotherapy sessions your chamber is an asset. But what if business stops? Will you be able to sell it, or end up with it in your garage at home? The financial education guru Robert Kiyosaki has taught for over 25 years that “an asset puts money in your pocket, and a liability takes money out of your pocket.” Once you stop making money in cryo your expensive chamber becomes an instant liability.

Best Resale Value – what is your backup plan?

As a consultant I often ask entrepreneurs what plans they have in place if they lose their business. The number one answer is always “I’ll just sell my chamber.” But is it that easy? A quick search on eBay reveals an average of 25 chambers for sale at any given time, and many have been there for months. My search today found (in alphabetical order):

  • Active Cryo (multiple units)
  • CryoMed (two)
  • CryoUSA
  • Impact (multiple units)
  • Juka (multiple units)
  • My Cryo (two)
  • Mobile Cryo units in trailers (three for sale)
  • Revo Mobile

The market for used chambers is already saturated, and none of the units are selling for even half of their original purchase price.

A used cryotherapy chamber is not worth much these days….

What’s Your Cryotherapy Chamber Really Worth?

Your chamber is only worth what someone will pay for it, and right now nobody is buying used chambers for more than 50% of the retail price. Chamber pricing models are similar to automobiles: it’s only new until you buy it, and it must be a quality or unique vehicle to hold its value. Once it becomes used the inherent value plummets. The question you need to ask yourself is if your chamber is a quality machine that holds value.

Did you buy a Porshe or a Toyota?

From my personal experience with vehicles I discovered the hard truth of inherent value. I have owned a brand new Porshe 911 and a brand new Toyota Camry in my adult life. When I traded in the Porshe I only lost $14,000 from the original purchase price. But when I traded in my Camry I didn’t even receive half of its original value. The Porshe it turns out is a superior vehicle with a constant market demand, although it was impractical after I had my first child. The Camry was a great family car but for resale it is just too common and simply not a special car.

Compare your cryotherapy chamber with the laundry list of chambers for sale on eBay. There are some models that are noticeably absent simply because they have kept their owners in business or they kept their resale value high and sold quickly.

Best Cryotherapy Machines of 2019

The best cryotherapy machines of 2019 is a tough call. I have done a cryo session everyday for over two years now. I have only missed my cryo on days when I was traveling. In total I think I have enjoyed a crotherapy session about 4 days per week for the entire year. How did I afford all of this? Ironically most companies offered me cryotherapy for free for a “positive review.” I always tell them that I will write a positive review only if my experience is positive, and it often is. But you may notice that I have never officially endorsed a cryotherapy machine for a reason: I want to remain as impartial as possible.

The Best of the Best Cryotherapy Machines of 2019

For the most part what makes a top performing cryotherapy machine? In my humble opinion it meets three criteria:

  • The session is not interrupted by a system failure
  • The temperature reaches below -200°F
  • I feel safe

Those are three easy goals for becoming one of the best cryotherapy machines of 2019. Nonetheless many machines and cryotherapy providers just cannot meet all three. Sometimes my session is started only to suddenly stop and I have to get out, wait, and start again. This wastes my time and gives me concerns that I am not safe. I also want the temperature to reach colder than -200°F. This often means I am drawn to use liquid nitrogen machines because electric cryotherapy machines cannot reach below -160°F. For the record I am not opposed to electric machines, I just feel they do not provide as effective therapy because electric cryotherapy machines cannot reach below -160°F.

The XR by Cryo Innovations

The XR is a pro-athlete favorite

First place for 2019 is the Tesla-looking XR by Cryo Innovations. This cryotherapy machine immediately looks impressive. Solid and sturdy with illuminated blue lights this cryotherapy machine is hands-down different from anything else. Comfortable inside I always felt VERY safe as it has 8 safety features running at the same time. It even has an earclip that measures my pulse and blood oxygen levels which was actually fun to watch. I also quickly realized that the machine was ready to go almost instantly. The “pre-cool” time was faster than I could get undressed, and before I knew it the temperature was -230°F.

The Impact by Impact Cryotherapy

An Oldie But Goodie

The Impact Cryosauna is popular for being such an old model. Made in the USA like the XR gives the Impact a feeling of reliability. Many foreign made cryosaunas concern me. If a part breaks it may take awhile to have it replaced. The Impact made my “best of” list simply because it is a popular machine and I see it all across the country. Like the XR it gets cold, often below -210°F. I am comfortable in it as a consumer; however, if I were to buy one I would have the following requests for the manufacturer:

  • Make the walls sturdier. They are thin walls and it seems that they could be thicker for longevity.
  • The head-hole makes me feel trapped. It somewhat feels like a cigar-cutter and that my head and neck stick out like I am in a guillotine. The lid-with-a-hole feels weird, so why have it? It also forces the nitrogen gas towards my face, making me constantly worried I am inhaling it.

Onward to 2020!

This year is bringing huge advances to the cryotherapy world. New technology will enhance safety and bring cryotherapy to nearly every city in the country. Look for:

Is “breathable air” better?

Breathable air cryotherapy machine with door open in blue, black, and white colors.

Is breathable air better for cyrotherapy? The controversy surrounds the difference between electric and nitrogen based cryotherapy machines. Liquid nitrogen machines chill the air with a cold gas. In contrast, electric machines chill the air in the same manner as a freezer or air conditioner. If you have ever been in either machine you know that breathing becomes noticeable as soon as the cold hits your skin.

What is “breathable” air?

Electric cryotherapy chamber designers use the phrase “breathable air” in their marketing. Sometimes people are afraid that they may inhale liquid nitrogen gas (or “gasiform nitrogen”) in an open-top cryotherapy chamber. But this rarely happens because the person’s head is far above the cold clouds of gas. Nitrogen chamber designers also point out the fact that the air we breathe is 78% nitrogen. Breathing pure nitrogen is not healthy; however, a small whiff of a cloud–such as at Creamistry–will not cause any problems.

Breathable air is harder than you…think?

You are breathing right now, and you have been since the day you were born. But breathing during cryotherapy becomes noticeable as the temperature begins to drop. In the current marketplace you have two options: a chamber powered by electricity alone or by liquid nitrogen alone. Electric cryotherapy chambers are walk-in type of chambers that chill your entire body from head to toe. When I first tried one I was excited as I thought it was a superior method. But I quickly noticed that my breathing was noticeable and that it was VERY COLD air. I did not panic, but the air felt thick and I had to mentally calm myself down.

What is the big difference anyway?

My cryotherapy journey began when my gym bought a nitrogen-based chamber a few years ago. My workout days are the same and I still use that machine every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I make my recovery a priority, but my evaluation of different chambers requires an open mind. I like trying EVERY cryotherapy method I find, and they are all pretty good. Whether the air is “breathable” doesn’t matter to me since I am not (and never have) had a problem in an open-top nitrogen machine. What I have noticed is these two major points:

  • Electric machines “feel” colder. When my head felt the cold it made my entire body feel cold. But overall the temp was not as low as what I am used to.
  • Nitrogen machines get the coldest of all but are more comfortable since my face and scalp do not feel cold.

These points seem a bit contradictory: one feels colder but is not as cold as the other. From my clinical understanding the head-in chamber feels colder because my head has all five senses getting cold at the same time. Head-out chambers keep my head warm while chilling me from the neck down so they don’t feel as cold.

Price Points

Blogging in this small field puts me out there. I am approached nearly once a week. Companies want advertising space on this site which we never sell. We don’t do that, so I won’t recommend either type of chamber over another. Instead I will leave you with these facts gleaned from the industry:

  • Nitrogen based machines cost anywhere from 45k to 65k. Most are made in Europe but two are made in the USA.
  • Electric machines cost anywhere of 80k to 150k.
  • Nitrogen machines are roll-in and go. They can operate as soon as they arrive. They do require a vent in small rooms.
  • Electric machines require professional installation and 220 volt power, along with some plumbing.
  • Hybrid machines that use liquid nitrogen gas to make a “breatheable air” environment are not as cold as a pure nitrogen chamber.

Cryo Innovations XR vs Impact Elite Cryosauna

The XR by Cryo Innovations

Cryotherapy leads the way in revolutionary and popular recovery modes. For a healthy lifestyle today how do you know which cryotherapy chamber is right for your clients? We compare two: a new technologically advanced chamber and an old standby. Both incorporate popular features. This blog will hopefully help you choose the best way to provide healthy recovery options in your spa, gym or medical office.

Let’s take a look at two popular cryotherapy options that are both made in the USA: the Cryo Innovations XR and the Impact Cryosauna.

Safety First:

Cryo Innovations XR offers state-of-the-art technology including multiple sensors and a “no-fail” security system in their cryotherapy chamber.

  • Two fingerprint authorizations for operation. Technicians must touch the screen every 30 seconds for it to continue in the ‘on’ mode.
  • Head Sensor – this ensures that if a user’s head falls below the line the cryo chamber will shut down.
  • Onboard O2 sensors
  • Pulse oxygen reader to monitor oxygen levels while standing in the chamber
  • Built- in skin temperature sensor
  • Thermal imaging camera to ensure temperatures are safe and even
  • Door safety that never locks. If it is leaned on, the door opens.
  • Emergency button and shut off are available to the technician and the user, allowing either to shut it off instantly.
  • Cordura® Military grade anti-microbial, tear-proof, waterproof fabric, hand crafted for all interior panels. (Used by Nike and Space-X.)

Impact Elite Cryosauna offers classic technology and American workmanship in their cryotherapy sauna.

Impact Elite Cryosauna with door closed
The Impact
  • “Smart Sauna” software that allows for direct monitoring for the cryotherapy specialist operating the machine.
  • Simplified user interface with built-in safety protocols and has earned an independent laboratory ETL Mark for safety.
  • Technician has all the safety features at their fingertips. An instructor teaches a course Impact calls “Whole Body Cryotherapy Operator Training: Safety is Essential,” at the installation of your cryosauna.
  • Onboard O2 sensors
  • Adjustable height riser system so users are always elevated correctly for their size within the chamber.
  • Acrylic interior panels – to ensure the cleanliness of the chamber and the health of users.

These both offer state of the art technology with safety as a top feature. Having the ability for the user to be in control within the Cryo Innovations XR is unique. We found comfort in being able to shut down the chamber or simply lean on the door to open it. It also felt good knowing that the interior shape of the XR will pop the door open if someone collapsed for any reason (it is a slight inverted cone shape). The Impact Elite Cryosauna has an adjustable floor that ensures the user’s head is in the exact position above the nitrogen, and this is a good safety feature.

Along with the safety features of both chambers the technology of each is critically important to safety and operational ease. Both companies offer training to their buyers, so technicians are well prepared for operation. Both are nitrogen cooled and are made in the USA. The Cryo Innovations XR has a smaller footprint at 44″ x 34.” The Impact Cryosauna is 72″ x 36.” Each offers a warranty: one year with Impact, and three years with Cryo Innovations. Impact has a vapor delivery system to regulate the flow. Cryo Innovations has a proprietary Cyclone Flow Technology of less than 3 liters of nitrogen per session.

The looks and structure of both chambers offer aesthetics that can suit any office or venue. Each has their own unique design. Impact offers a laser cut aluminum structure. The Cryo Innovations model has glowing blue LED lighting that adds to any aesthetic. The XR is also highly mobile with locking wheels.

Financing a cryotherapy sauna

financing a cryotherapy sauna and financing a cryotherapy chamber
Don’t let hesitation freeze your ambitions.

Cryosaunas are not cheap, so for many it comes down to financing a cryotherapy suana. This is common in the recovery industry. Small business owners may not have the cash on hand to buy a sauna outright. For most entrepreneurs the fastest way to a cryotherapy startup is financing a cryotherapy sauna.

What are the steps to financing a cryotherapy sauna?

Financing a cryotherapy sauna is easier than you think. While small business loans may not approve for a cryosauna there are other options. Cryotherapy has a small but dedicated group of lenders who will finance your cryosauna and who understand your needs. This niche market developed because of entrepreneurs such as yourself. Cryotherapy is an entirely new market that is expected to exceed 5 billion dollars by 2025. Many people are sprinting to become the first cryotherapy business in their area, and small banks are noticing.

Do I need really good credit?

The terms for financing a cryosauna are about the same as other small business loans. For most cryotherapy manufacturers you will need to show 1 year of being in business, a personal FICO score no lower than 650, and reserved funds in a company bank account. If you can meet those requirements you can get financed quickly.

Is financing a smart option?

Everyone wishes they had an unlimited source of funding, but the reality is that most entrepreneurs do not. In fact, one estimate of new startups measured that over 90% of entrepreneurs use other people’s money. The estimate also noted that most loans are paid off earlier than expected. This is because the entrepreneur is highly motivated to make the business work, and that inner drive is what makes it a success.

How many people are under a finance plan?

About 25% of new cryosauna owners receive financing, and surprisingly they are often those who are more successful in the long run. Part of that success is the fact that a cryosauna begins making a profit almost instantly. The other part of that is hard work. If you need financing it means that you are serious about your business, and if you have been in business for over a year then you are on your way to success.

CryoCab

The CRYOCAB is a self diagnostic machine that offers many safety and versatility options for the professional and for the client, with state of the art technology. The Cryomed Pro offers multiple color and size choices for businesses to customize and brand, as well as long lasting design. Let’s take a look at all of the features available.

CRYOCAB Features:

  • Equipped with innovative control and extraction devices guaranteeing total safety.
  • Sensors continually analyze the interior environment of the cabin and provide real-time information to the control system
  • Any abnormality (patient, oxygen, nitrogen) during the session is detected immediately, which stops the nitrogen flow and removes the nitrogen in the chamber immediately
  • Integrated LED light flashes in the event of an alarm.
  • A differential circuit breaker guarantees an additional level of safety. It is integrated into the electrical cabinet of the cabin located in the technical area.
  • Unlike other systems equipped with an electric lift to be adjusted for each person, the CRYOCAB® cabin is equipped with rising doors that allow to precisely adjust the cooling chamber to the size of the person. The doors are automatically placed at the shoulders before the diffusion of nitrogen. An innovation that offers extra comfort.
  • Extractors located at the top of the doors suck the rising nitrogen and stabilize the cloud below the face during the whole session- this protects that no nitrogen is accidentally inhaled.
  • An extractor located at the bottom allows the immediate evacuation of the nitrogen in case of opening of the doors or any other alert.
  • Customized color design: ability to customize the colors of the veneer, the type of upholstery, lighting and more
  • Remote control capabilities
  • Treatment data and information on clients is stored for comparisons at each visit
  • The CRYOCAB® cabin is equipped with sensors that constantly analyze the environment of the user and provide real-time security information to the control system

  • Low nitrogen use
  • For Business use: Multiple customizable color choices for inside and out, customizable sizes, branding & mobile design capabilities
  • High-quality of industrial components and controllers (Teco, Schneider) are the guarantee of long-term lifetime of Cryomed Pro

Concerns

Both cabins use electric lift platforms that adjust to account for the height of the client. These systems have one drawback: they break. Fixing a broken lift platform requires a dismantling of the cabin and a waiting period for parts. European systems require international shipping for any broken lifts. Advanced systems, such as Cryo Innovation’s XR Cryochamber use non-mechanical lifts that cannot break: sturdy pads that are stackable for the client to stand on (visible in the photograph here). Sometimes simple is better, especially when a spa has to cancel appointments due to a broken lift.

Cryo°Cabin and Titan Cryo Compared

Here we compare the features of two popular nitrogen cryotherapy chambers: the Cryo°Cabin™, made in Finland by Cryotech Nordic, and the TITAN™ Cryo cabin, from the United States. Both cryotherapy chambers offer thermal imaging options to ensure the safety of the client and high quality remote WiFi operating systems. The Cryo°Cabin offers its features in different size chambers to suit an individual’s stature. The TITAN™ Cryo Cabin offers several chamber options that allow for large and tall persons, such as professional football players to use the chamber in comfort. Below are some of the features that each provides to its users. Both are liquid nitrogen based, both have electric lifts, and both claim to be the safest.

First Up: Finland

The Cryo°Cabin™ offers a low usage of nitrogen paired with a steady ability to treat many clients in a day. It has a sturdy build and state of the art technology for safety. Perfect for the gym, spa or medical facility, the Cryo°Cabin is a cryotherapy chamber that is efficient and strong with smooth Scandinavian design.

  • Ultrasonic head sensor 

Electric Lifts In Common

Both cabins use electric lift platforms that adjust to account for the height of the client. These systems have one drawback: they break. Fixing a broken lift platform requires a dismantling of the cabin and a waiting period for parts. Finland’s system requires international shipping for any broken lifts. Advanced systems, such as Cryo Innovations XR Cryochamber use non-mechanical lifts that cannot break: sturdy pads that are stackable for the client to stand on. Sometimes simple is better, especially when a spa has to cancel appointments due to a broken lift.

Pricing Comparisons

Titan’s sales team quoted this writer with a price of $65,600. Cryo°Cabin quoted $39,000 for their Standard model, with $1,300 shipping.

Contacting the Manufacturer – Easy or Not?

Cryotech in Finland has one drawback: they are in Finland, which is 7 hours ahead of New York, and 10 hours ahead of California. Their website does not list a phone number of anyone to call, not even a service center. Upon filling out the webform to ask how to buy a chamber Cryotech took two days to respond with an email stating that their sales team would respond in a day. They do have suppliers and resellers of their products in the United States; however, those distributors also have to contact Finland in the event there is a problem. Geographically Finland’s closest neighbors are Russia and Estonia, and while Finland is politically distinct from both the shipping distances from Finland and Russia are similar.

Titan Cryo was easier to reach, although contacting them through the phone number listed on their website led to Google Voice. This resulted in a low-quality call and concerns for the stability of the business. In a spirit of fairness we called this number 3 different times from different numbers throughout the work week. All calls resulted in call-forwarding through Google Voice to personal cell phone or laptop. Most professional cryotherapy companies, spas, and gyms invest in normal phone services.

A Misleading Safety Claim

cryotechnordic.com
Screenshot: CryoTechNordic.com

Upon investigation both the Cryo°Cabin™ and Titan failed in our comparison for a significant reason: their websites both claim that the cabins are in some way certified by Underwriter Laboratories, the global safety certification organization. Titan’s website claims that their Cryo Cabin™ is the “only Cryo Cabin in the world tested and certified to UL standards,” and touts their cabin as having “The most experience and safety.” Cryotech Nordic Cryo°Cabin’s™ website claims that it is “100% CE/UL certified.” While both cabins appear safe these statements are concerning as they purport to assure the user of an additional layer of safety that is only available in their product.

UL has not certified either cabin, only the electronic components purchased by the companies to use in the cabin (e.g., electrical box). This is not special: all electronic components in all consumer machines must be certified by UL to be sold in the United States.

Breaking Down the Science of CRYO Science: What to Know About This Cryotherapy Product

Cryotherapy is on the rise, and with it, there is a growing market of products. With so many options out there, choosing the right one can feel like a challenge.

One company that is making waves is CRYO Science. Keep reading to learn more about their products and what makes them one of the best in the industry.

What is Cryotherapy?

While it may sound like a futuristic, sci-fi experiment, the idea behind cryotherapy is actually very simple. To put it shortly, cryotherapy is cold therapy

This cold therapy provides a thermal shock to the human body. When subjected to this cold, our bodies trigger reflexes designed to help us survive extreme temperatures.

These reflexes can include a number of reactions, including a faster metabolism, muscle and joint relaxation, and a boost of energy.

In the wild, these reflexes helped our ancestors survive and kept their bodies functioning when temperatures dropped or storms would strike. But today, cryotherapy helps us harness these reactions for a variety of health and beauty benefits.

What is Cryotherapy Used for?

Cryotherapy can be used to treat a wide number of medical conditions, as well as minor aches and pains. This also means that it can be used by patients from any background.

One group that may particularly benefit from cryotherapy are athletes. No matter the sport, athletes of any experience level often suffer from a variety of frequent aches and pains. 

While these pains are normal, they can keep athletes from performing at the highest level. Cryotherapy can be used to treat these pains, and get athletes back up and performing at an even higher level than before.

Besides athletes, anyone suffering from muscle or joint aches and pains can also use cryotherapy to find relief. 

Cryotherapy can also be used to treat other conditions. For instance, regular, targeted cryotherapy sessions can lead to weight loss. It can even give patients, younger-looking skin.

In the short-term, even a single cryotherapy session can lead to a better mood and a boost of energy.

The Science Behind CRYO Science

While there are plenty of companies offering products designed for harnessing the benefits of cryotherapy, not all are created equal.

One company that stands out from the crowd is CRYO Science. Trusted by the NFL, the U.S. Air Force, and more, this company specialized in cryotherapy pods designed to offer targeted results.

Their whole-body chamber, the CRYO ARTIC, is the most effective, the coldest option on the cryotherapy market today. It can lower the surface temperature of the body to as low as -140 degrees Celsius.

This gets the blood circulating rapidly, endorphin levels rising, and increase the oxygen and nutrient supply within the body.

Plus, the chamber’s unique design ensures that the patient never comes into contact with the cryogenic gases used to achieve those cold temps. This makes it one of the safest options on the market as well.

You can even create a personal ID for each patient to track their treatments and easily adjust each session for maximum results.

For those looking for a smaller scale cryotherapy option, they also offer the CRYO Penguin, a mobile device that allows you to target your treatment to a specific part of the body rather than subjecting patients to a total-body cool-down.

Getting Started with Cryotherapy

If you want to experience the benefits of cryotherapy, you can’t go wrong by investing in a CRYO Science chamber or mobile product.

Why Space Cabin for Your Cryotherapy Needs?

How seriously do you take cryotherapy? Are you finding treatment in a proper cryotherapy machine, or are you still dragging bags of ice to the bathtub?

Ice baths served a purpose in the early days of cryotherapy. They offered easy access to the benefits of cold therapy for healing. However, there are a number of innovations that have advanced what cryotherapy can do for you.

So ditch the ice bags and learn why Space Cabin is the best choice for your cryotherapy needs.

Benefits of Cryotherapy

Are you wondering why someone might be eager to immerse themselves in extreme cold? At first glance, it may seem absurd but cryotherapy can have an amazing therapeutic impact.

First of all, the effects of severe cold create a hormonal response. Studies suggest that this response can have positive effects on mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

Disorders caused by inflammation like arthritis and migraines appear to ease under cold therapy, too. So do skin conditions like dryness and atopic dermatitis.

Cryotherapy vs Ice Bath

The convenience of a Space Cabin is clear over an ice bath. But is it worth the cost?

Ice baths can have positive effects on the mind and body. But they’ll never be as effective as they will never reach the lower temperatures of a Space Cabin. 

Also, since cryotherapy machines use gaseous nitrogen instead of water, there’s no moisture. This keeps the cold surface level, whereas cold water can seep deeper. This could cause complications as the body’s core temperature lowers too much.

How Does Space Cabin Work?

The user enters the machine wearing socks and light clothing. They sit with shoulders level with the top of the machine, leaving their head free. An operator then starts the machine, which circulates air cooled by nitrogen around the user.

Sessions last from one to three minutes, at which point the user leaves the chamber and enjoys the benefits of the therapy.

Is it Safe?

At no point does the user come in direct contact with the nitrogen gas. Instead, the gas evaporates into the air inside the chamber, dramatically lowering the temperature.

The users head remains above the machine at all times, allowing for easy communication with the operator. The doors on the Space Cabin don’t lock, and there’s a large red emergency stop button if needed.

What are the Immediate Benefits?

During the therapy, the brain releases endorphins in response to the cold. This provides an immediate sense of well-being and happiness. Circulation will be improved, offering more energy and leading to better sleeps.

What are the Long-Term Benefits?

How long it takes to notice the benefits of cryotherapy on the injury will depend on the severity of the issue. 

Cold treatment two or three times a week is recommended to get the best results. It may take a few weeks for the body to fully respond, at which point the benefits will be more noticeable.
