WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY.

Yes, you can do both. If you choose to workout before your treatment, we ask that you allow enough time for your core body temperature to cool down before your session. In addition, you must be completely dry (no sweat). We strongly recommend working out after your cryotherapy session so you can reap the full benefits of feeling more energised and flexible.

A general session will be around -130 degrees Celsius. The temperature and duration are adjusted to suit your specific comfort levels and personal goals.

The Whole Body Cryotherapy cabin is cooled with liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen is introduced  to the atmosphere via a metering process within the mechanics of the cabin. The machine turns the liquid nitrogen into a fog like vapour.  A nearby storage vessel supplies the liquid nitrogen. The fog is then circulated in a vortex around you for up to 3-minutes.

A Whole Body Cryotherapy session is a maximum of 3 minutes. The time and temperature are adjusted to suit your specific comfort levels and goals.

While a single session will instantly change your mood, we recommend doing 2-3 treatments a week to fully reap the benefits of cryotherapy and maximise your potential.

The most common feeling is being energised. During your session, the cold acts on your hormone levels. Your body’s natural fight or flight response is activated and dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin levels are elevated. Most clients report a revitalised or energised feeling for 6-8 hours after a session. The next most common experience reported is analgesic or pain mitigating effect. This is primarily affected in 2 ways. The first way is removal of pain caused from inflammation. The second way pain is minimised is by disallowing white blood cells to enter damaged muscles thereby circumventing muscular inflammation. Other normal experiences are shortened recovery periods, minimisation of delayed onset muscle soreness, alleviation of joint pain and stiffness, increased flexibility, and increased muscular performance.

Absolutely. This technology was invented specifically for those afflicted with Arthritis. Whole Body Cryotherapy now maintains a secure foothold in the treatment and management of Arthritis. Inflammation of the synovial membrane, caused by degradation of the joint, can be extremely painful. Whole Body Cryotherapy acts by removing swelling and inflammation, and returning enriched, oxygenated blood to the joint.

Yes. The air you are breathing right now is 78% nitrogen.  To ensure your safety, we employ the most advanced cryotherapy technology available and a trained technician will accompany you in-room for the duration of your session. Additionally, your head remains above the top of the chamber at all times via an adjustable lift that allows for varying heights – this measure keeps you from breathing in the cooling nitrogen.

Clients are required to wear underwear or a bathing suit without metal during the session. The more skin you can have exposed the better. We will provide you with speciality socks, gloves and shoes to be worn. Additionally, all metal jewellery must be removed from the neck down before the session.

This treatment is completely dry which allows your body to withstand the extremely low temperatures. For some people, a slight pins & needles sensation may occur during the final 20-30 seconds but disappears immediately upon exiting the session.

The following conditions are contraindications to whole body cryotherapy:

LOCALISED CRYOTHERAPY.

There are two different timeframes we offer. Depending on the size of the area and requirements will determine the timeframe. We have Small area sessions that last from 5 to 6 minutes and Large area session that cool for 10 - 12 minutes. The longer you cool the area will obviously be more beneficial. Generally, a Large session is initially required. 

Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy there isn't an age restriction. So If your young ones have injured themselves or needing skin treatments,  we are able to perform the therapy on them

As long as the vapour can have direct contact with your skin, normal cloths are all that is required. Depending on the treatment area, you may be required to remove some clothing to enable the area to be treated.

CRYOSKIN.

Although not essential, its preferred if you dont workout half an hour before a session. It is encouraged however to exercise after a session.

It does feel cold but it isn't painful. Chin Slimming is the most sensitive to people. For most people its comfortable similar to rubbing an ice pack on the area.

By implementing a healthy lifestyle and a good diet. Anything you can do to help your lymphatic system is also recommended. Most of our other services are designed to improve circulation and help the lymphatic system.

CryoSlimming usually lasts 26-50 minutes depending on the treatment. CryoToning lasts 30 minutes and CryoFacial lasts 20 minutes.

Results will depend on the treatment, individual, and their lifestyle and diet. Fat loss is permanent, but clients may still gain fat back in the treated area if they do not maintain a balanced lifestyle.

Slimming treatments can be performed once every 14 days and Toning treatments can be performed every 3-7 days.

The first results are generally visible from the first session and often very encouraging. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 14 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.

You do not need to bring anything, we provide you with everything you need.

Anyone who is looking to lose weight or has stubborn areas of fat they are looking to remove. Best results happen if you do your part also. Clean eating and regular exercise help compound the results.

It takes an average of 2 weeks for your body to completely remove the fat cells from your system, therefore the treatment is most effective when there is 2 weeks in between each session. You also dont want to overload the lymphatic system by putting too much waist into your system,

CRYOFACIAL.

Not at all. Men can get the same, if not more out of a CryoFacial than women. Apart from all the anti-ageing benefits, the procedure also stimulates the hair follicles and promotes hair growth. This can slow or stop the balding process along with the possibility of growing that full luscious beard you have always wanted.

For best results it is recommended that your makeup is removed prior to the session but not essential. 

A typical session takes 10 - 12 minutes.

This is a case by case basis. For optimal anti-ageing benefits, we recommend a treatment schedule of 2 times a week for 8 weeks. After your initial 8 weeks has passed, a maintenance schedule of once every 2-3 weeks generally results in a continued fresh-faced and glowing appearance.

Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy there isn't an age restriction. So If your young ones are needing skin treatments,  we are able to perform the therapy on them

After a single visit, you should notice tighter skin, reduction in facial puffiness and minimised pore size. People might notice a glow (be prepared for compliments)! Single visits are perfect for date night or special event preparations.

COMPRESSION THERAPY.

Yes, compression therapy is safe to use before working out! In fact, it is great before working out or training because of the enhance circulation and mobility it offers.

FloCryo’s dynamic compression systems are safe to use multiple times a day, including before and after training sessions. For medical applications, consult your doctor on treatment protocols best suited for your medical needs.

Compression Therapy speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, and mobilising toxins such as lactic acid and excess fluids. What you’ll notice is less stiffness and soreness, as well as increased mobility and flexibility. It’s important to note that the speed at which you recover involves several factors, such as your age, level of fitness, sleep, and diet. No matter your situation, however, compression therapy can significantly cut down your recovery time. Our Compression devices are based on existing medical technology that employs dynamic compression. Years of medical research and application have proven the benefit of dynamic compression. As a result, intermittent compression devices are ideal for athletes who must constantly recover and heal as they push their bodies to new limits.

While Compression Therapy is safe to use for a variety of applications, please consult your doctor before using if you know or suspect you may have the following: deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism (blood clot) or edema, thrombophlebitis, inflammation of the skin (e.g., erysipelas, cellulitis), ischemic vascular disease, severe peripheral neuropathy, or related issues and complications.

Our dynamic compression therapy is ideal for post-workout recovery because it enhances blood circulation, removes lactic acid, and reduces swelling and inflammation. At the same time, Compression Therapy has a variety of medical indications, including lymphedema, venous insufficiency, and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. It can also be applied to other circulation-related issues that stem from varicose veins, diabetes, surgery, injury, etc. If you are interested in using compression therapy for a medical condition, please talk to your doctor first about the benefits of intermittent pneumatic compression for your specific needs.

Compression Therapy is ideal right after a workout, race, or event, especially after a long, arduous one. However, you can use the boots after a long day, anytime your legs are feeling sore, or whenever you feel you need to. Another important thing to remember is that while Compression Therapy can help with recovery after one use, helping your body recover is an investment of time and requires consistency. In other words, make a habit of using Compression Therapy! Also, remember to eat well and get enough sleep. Dynamic compression is an important part of recovery, but it’s not the only part. Cryotherapy can help in other areas.

While Compression Therapy is safe to use for a variety of applications, please consult your doctor before using if you know or suspect you may have the following: deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism (blood clot) or edema, thrombophlebitis, inflammation of the skin (e.g., erysipelas, cellulitis), ischemic vascular disease, severe peripheral neuropathy, or related issues and complications.

Due to its customisability of settings, our compression therapy can accommodate a wide range of people, from athletes who use it for a competitive edge to geriatric patients suffering from circulatory and lymphatic complications. Refer to the contraindications question to see who should not use it without first consulting his or her doctor.
