CRYOTHERAPY @ LIVKRAFT
LIVKRAFT is revolutionizing cryotherapy in San Diego as the first wellness center in San Diego to offer the Cryo Science CRYO Arctic. The CRYO Arctic is designed to deliver the easiest, safest, and most effective cryotherapy treatments in San Diego and La Jolla. The CRYO Arctic is built using state of the art technology to ensure that you are never in direct contact with nitrogen vapors, the CRYO Arctic matches its futuristic design with the highest industry safety standards.
Unlike other San Diego cryotherapy chambers, while inside the CRYO Arctic, you are only exposed to breathable cold air, and not to potentially harmful Nitrogen gas. Nitrogen is used only as a cooling mechanism and does not come into contact with you while inside the chamber. This enables 100% of the body’s total surface area to be exposed to temperatures ranging from -130 °F to -220 °F making the treatment more effective and efficient.
The CRYO Arctic features a more spacious and less claustrophobic treatment environment than other San Diego and La Jolla cryotherapy chambers. This feature also reduces the potential for skin irritation due to contact with the interior wall of the chambers, a frequent occurrence in other San Diego and La Jolla cryotherapy chambers.
WHAT IS WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY?
Whole body Cryotherapy is the process of exposing the body to extreme cold to elicit an anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relief) response. Cryotherapy in general, which includes application of ice packs and cold water immersion (cold tubs), has been used throughout human history to achieve these results. In the past 30 years, whole body cryotherapy has emerged as a more efficient method to achieve reduced inflammation, pain relief and faster recovery. In the last few years most major professional sports teams & professional athletes have turned to whole body cryotherapy for their recovery needs, incorporating the treatment into their daily routines to keep their bodies performing at elite levels. Models and actors also frequently utilize the treatment to facilitate recovery during their rigours exercise regimes.
WHAT TO EXPECT
3 Minutes inside an environment cooled to -130 °F to -220 °F using breathable air technology.
The Cryo Science Cryo Arctic gives you the option of (1) having your entire body, including your face & head, in the chamber or; (2) lowering the front window allowing the cold air vapors to dissipate before reaching your face & head.
LIVKRAFT WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY PROCESS
Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes before your first appointment in order to fill out the required paperwork. When you have completed the intake form and waivers, a LIVKRAFT team member will check you in and guide you back to either our Whole Body or Local Cryotherapy suite once the room is available and prepared for your treatment. Once inside the room a LIVKRAFT team member will go over the required attire, safety procedures and answer any questions you may have. From there our team member will leave the room allowing you to change out of your clothes, remove all jewelry and other metals and change into the proper treatment attire. Dress down to whatever is comfortable for you. We recommend both men and women experience the treatment in their underwear, compression shorts or sports bra. We have extras of each in case you need them. You will be required to wear the following items during your treatment:
- LIVKRAFT provided gloves
- LIVKRAFT provided socks
- LIVKRAFT provided surgical mask
- LIVKRAFT provided ear warmers
You will then change into the LIVKRAFT provided robe or towel and alert our team member who will be waiting for you outside the room that you are ready for your treatment. Our team member will ask you what type of music or specific song you would like to listen to during the session and then you will step inside the Cryo Arctic. Once inside the Cryo Arctic an interior display will alert you to how much time is remaining during your 3 minute treatment session. Our team member will be in constant contact with you via intercom and you can communicate with them at any time.
Once you are done with the treatment change back into your clothing, place socks and robe or towel into our laundry hamper and we will take care of the rest.
HOW WILL YOU FEEL AFTER A WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY SESSION?
We are all different. So naturally we all react to the experience differently. Some clients will come out feeling energized and alert while others will come out feeling relaxed and centered. When your body is exposed to the cold air vapors, your natural fight or flight response is triggered. This means that blood is drawn from your skin and extremities to your vital organs, essentially the treatment is tricking your body into survival mode for 3 minutes. When you exit the Cryo Arctic your entire body is flooded with re-oxygenated and re-circulated blood.
In our experience, the benefits of Whole-Body cryotherapy are most noticeably felt 10-15 minutes post treatment. The typical immediate effects are a reduction in muscle and joint soreness, pain relief and increased energy levels. Throughout the day you may feel hungrier than normal as your body experiences a metabolic spike due to increased circulation. Some clients have also experienced a more restful and deep sleep as a result of whole body cryotherapy.
Like with any of our treatments, consistency is key. The more you experience La Jolla Cryotherapy, the more likely you are to experience lasting and consistent benefits. Whether you are a professional athlete or just trying to stay in shape to live an active and healthy lifestyle, recovery should be an integral part of your health, wellness and fitness routine. If you truly want to get the most out of your workouts and diet, recovery has to become a habit.
At LIVKRAFT, we do not make any medical or aesthetic claims or promises regarding whole body cryotherapy. We are not doctors and are not diagnosing or treating any disease or condition. We invite you to experience the treatment and utilize our resources, research and knowledge to form your own conclusions about the benefits of Cryotherapy. Everyone is different and therefore may react differently to Cryotherapy. It is our hope and mission to provide you with an unparalleled experience emphasizing safety above all things. We aim to deliver unrivaled customer service and amenities that you would expect from a world class spa.
