What is Cryo?
Cryotherapy uses gasified nitrogen to cool your skin and activate healing processes in the body, speeding up the metabolism in an attempt to warm up your body. This happens by the blood rushing to your core and then back to the extremities; oxygenating your body, lowering inflammation, increasing collagen, speeding up recovery times for athletes, and boosting your mood and focus by releasing neurotransmitters.
Whole Body Cryotherapy Benefits Include
- Decrease Inflammation
- Athletic Performance and Recovery
- Decrease Joint Pain
- Slow the Aging Process
- Weight Loss
- Boost Mood, Focus and Energy
Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments should I do?Here at FLOAT, located in Marin County in the SF Bay Area, we recommend 5-10 Cryotherapy treatments over a couple of days to get the maximum benefits and results. After that, you can slow to once a week to maintain your results.
Can I float and Cryo in the same day?Yes, a Cryotherapy session before a Float will leave you more chill and ending with a Cryo session will leave you more energized, but you’ll need to be completely dry. After your Float and Cryotherapy sessions, you can step out into beautiful Sausalito, a short drive from San Francisco.
How cold does it get?At FLOAT, we start our beginners at -130 and advanced at -150 for two to three minutes of whole body Cryotherapy. You can always get out if it gets too cold for you.
How will I feel after?Cryotherapy releases endorphins which make you feel energized and incredible. Marin and SF Bay Area Cryotherapy users here at FLOAT find that the mood-boosting effects last for days.
What do I wear during the session?Our friendly staff here at FLOAT will provide you with a robe, long socks, gloves, and clogs. Men must wear shorts or underwear. (all jewelry must be removed, and women must avoid bras with metal wire).
