It’s recommended to wait at least 30 minutes before taking a cool shower to achieve the most benefits. But lets be honest, a cool or warm shower right after feels amazing, and we put a shower in the room for a reason.
Two to three minutes is enough to reap the extensive list of benefits of cryotherapy treatment. First time we start you at 2 minutes, and then we increase the time over the next 2 sessions so that your skin gets used to the treatment.
If it is for weight management, it’s recommended to begin with ten sessions in succession for the best results (within 2-3 weeks), and then our knowledgeable staff will assess the way forward. If it is for pain or other conditions we say to try to do it three times in two weeks, then reassess after that.
The cryo-chamber is in its own private room, and the chamber door is held shut with a magnet, so it’s never locked. Your head is raised above the chamber in room temperature air. You can exit at any time if you feel uncomfortable, which so far no one has.
Some people may feel as if they have fallen asleep, but the likelihood of drowning is exceptionally slim. The water is so buoyant that you won’t sink or turn onto your side, and the intensity of the salt that might enter your eyes or mouth would wake you up immediately.
Red Light Therapy
Because the treatment is non-invasive, you won’t experience any redness or swelling so you’ll leave looking the same way as when you entered. You can safely apply sunscreen and makeup immediately after treatment.
Skin Cancer is caused by exposure to UV rays, which aren’t present in red lights. Red light treatment can actually be used as a method of preventing skin cancer or rejuvenating skin after the removal of the skin cancer.
The great thing about red light therapy is that you can’t get too much of a good thing. If you can fit in one treatment session a week, that’s perfect, though more consistent use delivers the best results.
Because the only thing NormaTec sequential pulse technology releases is air, showering before or after a NormaTec compression session isn’t necessary – unless you’ve had an intense workout before.
You can benefit from NormaTec compression almost any time, before or after every training session, after a long day of being on your feet at work or whenever you feel like it. You can use it every day if you prefer, or only after intense sessions. Some people use it before a sporting event to prepare their muscles.
