What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy is a cold treatment where you will stay in a cabin of -110 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes. In response to the cold, processes are initiated throughout your body that provide more energy, better skin, faster metabolism and muscle recovery, for example after sports.

How did Whole Body Cryotherapy originate?

Whole Body Cryotherapy originated in Japan in the 70’s, resulting from research into pain relief for rheumatoid arthritis. When cryotherapy turned out to be very effective, it was also increasingly used outside the medical world. Over the last few years Whole Body Cryotherapy has become more popular in sport, beauty and wellness.

Is Whole Body Cryotherapy safe?

If you do not have any of the contra-indications, Whole Body Cryotherapy is completely safe. It has been used for decades, thousands of times daily, worldwide.

In the N-icelab cabin you will only wear your underwear, shorts (including a top for women) or swimwear. You will also wear a headband or a cap, socks with slippers, gloves and a mouth cap, which we will all provide.
