If you’re considering Cryotherapy or have already scheduled your session, proper preparation is key to ensuring a safe and effective experience. Let’s explore some essential tips on how to prepare for your Cryotherapy session.

Before Your Cryotherapy Session

Consultation and Medical Clearance

  • Consult with a Professional: Before undergoing Cryotherapy, it’s crucial to consult with a professional to discuss your health history, goals, and any contraindications. This will help determine if Cryotherapy is safe and suitable for you.
  • Medical Clearance: If you have any medical conditions or concerns, obtaining clearance from your healthcare provider is essential to ensure Cryotherapy is safe for you.


  • Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is important before Cryotherapy. Drink plenty of water in the hours leading up to your session to ensure your body is well-hydrated.

Clothing and Accessories

  • Dress Appropriately: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your appointment. You’ll typically be provided with a robe, socks, gloves, and slippers to wear during the session.
  • Remove Jewelry: Metal objects, including jewelry, should be removed before entering the Cryotherapy chamber to avoid any cold-related discomfort.

Skin Care

  • Dry Skin: Ensure that your skin is completely dry, as any moisture can increase the sensation of cold and potentially lead to frostbite.
  • Avoid Lotions and Oils: Do not apply lotions, oils, or any other substances to your skin before the session, as these can affect the treatment’s efficacy and your skin’s response to the cold.

During Your Cryotherapy Session

  • Follow Instructions: Pay close attention to the instructions provided by the Cryotherapy staff. They will guide you on how to enter and exit the chamber safely and how to position yourself during the treatment.
  • Communicate: If you feel uncomfortable at any time during the session, communicate with the staff immediately. They can adjust the treatment or end it if necessary.

After Your Cryotherapy Session

  • Monitor Your Body: Pay attention to how your body feels post-treatment and report any unusual symptoms to the staff.
