Cryotherapy is one of the most effective methods of healing, rehabilitation and regeneration of the human body through cold applications.
Whole-body cryotherapy consists of a short stay (2-3 minutes) of the user at very low temperatures (-110 ° C to -150 ° C) and subsequent mild aerobic activity. The effect of low temperature on the cold receptors, followed by warming of the entire body surface, causes intense blood circulation of the skin, the subcutaneous tissue and the muscular apparatus. At the same time, a number of organisms beneficial to the body are effective, mainly against inflammation and pain.
The first cryotherapy already brings a strong experience. You do not need to be afraid of extremely cold temperatures. There is much lower moisture in cryosauna than in winter. We are sure that you have already been in a hot sauna with air temperatures around 90 - 100°C and you have probably managed to stay there for around 12 minutes. However, we are also sure that you usually do not put your fingers in a pot with boiling water.
There is an operator at the cryocab. In case of unpleasant feelings, you can leave it immediately (just as you can quickly leave the hot sauna). The cold in the procedure is only superficial and does not usually cause problems with the bladder, for example.
To get the best results, we recommend you to book 6 to 10 sessions of cryotherapy and visit us at least 2 or 3 times a week. You can watch the video instructions on www.kryosauna.cz or you can visit us personally to see how it works.

Instructions for children and teenagers under the age of 18 and for people of short stature
Cryosauna is a medical facility for adults over 18 years of age. If a person under the age of 18 has a medical need for which cold treatment can help, consult a physician beforehand. In the presence of one of the parents and at his own risk, the procedure may be completed. The person in cryosauna must always have a chin at the top edge level to avoid breathing nitrogen. This corresponds to a height of at least 145cm, a smaller increase is therefore an absolute contraindication.
