Your introduction to Cryo Shield begins with a review and signing of our release-waiver form that details the few scenarios not permitted within the WBC Impact unit. Following the registration, we will provide a tour of our facility with an in-depth explanation of the procedure to help answer any questions or concerns. The last step is a mandatory blood pressure test that is performed prior to every WBC session. You are now ready to start enhancing your overall health and wellness.
Clients are guided to a selected room where the WBC Impact units are located. Inside each room, we will provide you with the mandatory items (gloves, socks and booties) worn during the procedure. Males are also required to wear cotton or wool undergarments for protecting the outer extremities (external parts). The more skin that is exposed during your treatment, the better overall results you will experience.
As your WBC session starts, you will immediately feel an even disbursement of LN2 (liquid nitrogen) throughout your entire body, except the head and upper neck area. The LN2 is applied in a dry vapor form. The starting temperature of procedure ranges from 14°F to -40°F depending on which of the 3 available levels you desire. Treatment temperatures reached during treatment range from -166°F to – 202°F also depending on desired level.
The skin surface is the only drop in temperature throughout the body, with the core remaining the same during and after the session. Sensors located within the skin’s surface control the central nervous system; by manipulating these sensors, whole body recovery is achieved. Cryotherapy sessions can last up to 3 minutes.
