Flow Cryotherapy Waiver

Explanation of Our Services

Whole Body Cryotherapy:

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the exposure of the body to sub-zero temperatures (up to -200 F) in a cryosauna. A person stands in the cryosauna for up to 3 minutes. The skin’s surface temperature is significantly lowered through the use of nitrogen vapor which stimulates receptors producing various medical benefits such as reduced inflammation, repair of muscles & joints, increased energy levels & metabolism, and to provide the ultimate athletic recovery.

 

Localized Cryotherapy/CryoFacial:

Uses nitrogen cooled air to target specific muscles and joints that are injured or inflamed. Cryotherapy heals by constricting the blood vessels and delivering oxygen-rich blood to the injured areas, thus decreasing inflammation and pain. Each session is approximately 8-10 minutes and targets 2-3 designated areas. The CryoFacial is a non-invasive facial that tightens your pores while reducing inflammation and “puffiness.”  Repeated facial treatments result in an increased production of collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Both Adults and minors may participate in our NormaTec Air Compression Therapy and Celluma LED Light Therapy with parental consent.
