  • Do you perform surgical procedures at your location?

    At Suria Cryo and Wellness we offer non-surgical procedures and consultations with our double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shashi Kusuma.

  • How long is a True Whole Body Cryotherapy session?

    A session can be between 1.5 minutes to 3 minutes. The maximum time allowed in the cryo cabin is 3 minutes and we aim for all our sessions to get to this mark in order to achieve maximum results.

  • What do I need to wear?

    During your cryotherapy session we will provide you with socks, shoes, gloves, and a robe (sports bra for the ladies if necessary). Undergarments are optional as long as there is no metal (unwire of bra not allowed). No jewelry, lotions or oils within the last 4 hours; Skin needs to be completely dry.

  • How soon can I expect results?

    After completing your first treatment, you will experience a release of endorphins. This ‘lift’ can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days. Regular usage within a short period of time will provide the quickest results.

  • Is one treatment enough?

    While every Whole Body Cryo session is beneficial, research has shown that you will experience improved and cumulative benefits with a minimum of 10 sessions, within a two or three week period. Each individuals' body is different and will respond differently.

  • Is there anyone who shouldn’t use cryotherapy?

    For those with medical conditions, please consult your physicians. Specifically though, we recommend that the following are reasons to not utilize cryotherapy: Pregnancy; severe, unmanaged hypertension; a cardiac pacemaker; currently undergoing cancer treatment; deep vein thrombosis; acute or recent myocardial infarction; uncontrolled seizures; fever; unstable angina pectoris; Raynaud’s syndrome; cold allergy; acute kidney and urinary tract diseases; open wounds or ulcers.

  • Is it comfortable?

    Yes. The treatment is short, between 1.5 and 3 minutes. The nitrogen-cooled air does not contain any moisture, nor is there any air current, so it is very tolerable. Near the end of the session, you may feel a ‘pins and needles’ sensation, which disappears after the treatment.

  • How does cryotherapy compare to an ice bath?

    It simply doesn’t! You will never achieve the same results with an ice bath. After 12-15 minutes of a shockingly cold ice bath the skin temperature only arrives at 41 degrees whereas with 2-3 minutes of whole body cryotherapy the skin temperature gets as low as 30 degrees, this allows for a different physiological response from the body increasing your speed of recovery and overall healing. During an ice bath, the cold actually penetrates into deeper skin tissue and can be damaging to the skin. In the cryocabin, the skin is never penetrated, yet the body responds on a deeper level, even improving the skin’s overall condition.

  • How will I feel afterward?

    During each session the body releases endorphins, which are your “feel good” hormones. The effects from each session last at least 6–8 hours. As with any new regimen, consistency is key and increased results will be noted with regular use. Many report a higher pain tolerance, and decreased inflammation. You will also burn 500 calories or more per exposure, due to the body’s increase in metabolic rate.

  • Can I work out immediately before or after my exposure?

    Yes. In fact, it is recommended. If you work out before your exposure, you can expect greater recovery due to the inflammation reduction. If you work-out after your exposure, you can expect a higher pain tolerance, more energy and greater flexibility.

  • Why do I need socks and gloves?

    The method of hyper-cooling the skin is so sudden that the body is triggered to pull blood from the extremities to protect the body’s core temperature. The vessels around the core then constrict, holding the blood in the core. We simply protect the areas that are most affected by this reaction to ensure your comfort and safety during your exposure.

  • I am claustrophobic. Can I use the CryoScience Arctic Chamber?

    Absolutely! The chamber is spacious with enough room to fit comfortably. You will remain in complete control as the door is never locked and you can step out if you ever experience discomfort.

  • Do I have to take a shower before and/or after the procedure?

    No, you do not. This procedure is completely dry and does not make your skin wet--its a vaporized nitrogen.

  • Is there a weight limit?

    We can accommodate clients up to 400 pounds in our cryocabins. *Please note: You will also have to be able to stand comfortably within the chamber without touching the sides in order to be allowed to purchase an exposure. We will assist you in accessing and measuring in the cabin for your safety.

  • Are there age restrictions?

    We require a minimum age of 10 years old for Whole Body Cryo. Any client under the age of 18 will require a parents signature for their consent form.
