When it comes to whole body cryotherapy the efficacy of the treatment is determined by temperature rather than time spent in the chamber. As temperature gets colder than -220F, we notice a dramatic increase in anti-inflammatory response. Watch this one minute clip to learn from our Medical Director Jonas Kuehne MD why temperature matters:


There are many whole body cryotherapy businesses popping up everywhere.

Most of them use walk-in chambers that perform anywhere from -110 to -166°F.

Our machines get significantly colder and can run up to -240°F. This makes a big difference!

When it comes to whole body cryotherapy, temperature, and not time is the determining factor for efficacy. You can get the same skin temperature from an ice bath, or a cold plunge after a certain amount of time, but the physiological response of your body is very different. 

The key is to rapidly ‘flash freeze’ the body with extremely cold temperatures. 

Real whole body therapy at -220 to -240°F is an extremely potent anti-inflammatory treatment. The studies may be very conflicting about the efficacy of the treatment, but keep in mind that many of them were done at subpar temperatures because electric machines can only reach -166°F which in our clinical experience is not sufficient.

We have several clients with severe autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Most of them have failed current immuno-suppressive medication treatment. Many have tried whole body cryotherapy in ‘electric’ chambers with no results. Using our equipment, they managed to be symptom-free with normal blood markers after a few months off all medications. While this will, of course, not work for everyone this is extremely encouraging.

Any walk-in chamber is a room air chamber. An ‘electric’ walk-in chamber uses freon that circulates through heat exchangers and is then recycled and re-compressed. Our walk-in chambers at Cryohealthcare use liquid nitrogen that circulates through heat exchangers and is then expelled. Since Liquid Nitrogen is significantly colder than freon, the temperature is much colder in our machines. 

How can you tell if a machine you are using is sufficiently cold? Room air always carries moisture with it. In extremely cold temperatures, the moisture in the air freezes to ice, which forms a fog. If you can clearly see the person inside the chamber, the temperature most likely is not sufficiently cold. The foggier the inside of the walk-in chamber the colder the temperature.

If you want to try real whole body cryotherapy, please visit us at one of our three Los Angeles locations at Cryohealthcare. 

There are two types of devices used for the treatment of Whole Body Cryotherapy: the Multi-Person Cryochamber and the Single Person Cryosauna.


The Cryosauna is a single-person device which envelopes a patient's body while keeping the head and neck area exposed to room air above the device. 

All devices are equipped with numerous safety features and doors are never locked, which allows clients to stop treatment instantaneously at any time.
