Is nitrogen gas dangerous?
The Juka is designed to avoid your exposure to the Nitrogen gas used to get the temperatures to -250 degrees F while providing the best Whole Body Cryotherapy experience.
How often should I use the Juka Cryosauna to achieve optimal results?
After an initial treatment plan, you will need to maintain your results, so sessions can be cut down to 1-2 times a week or less. If after a month or two, you are ready for another boost, you can start the process over again.
Does Cryotherapy compare to an ice bath?
No! Cryotherapy is much different from an ice bath. You are simply unable to achieve the same results with an ice bath. After 12-15 minutes of a shockingly cold ice bath the skin temperature only arrives at 41 degrees whereas with 2-3 minutes of Whole Body Cryotherapy the skin temperature can get as low as 30 degrees, this allows for a different physiological response from the body increasing speed of recovery and overall healing. During an ice bath, the cold actually penetrates into deeper skin tissue and can be damaging to the skin. In a cryosauna, the skin is never penetrated, yet the body responds on a deeper level, even improving the skin’s overall condition.
Can I catch a cold from whole body Cryotherapy?
Should I eat before my Cryotherapy session?
How do I feel after the Cryosauna?
During each session the body releases beta-endorphins which are hormones that make you feel good and energized. The effects from each session last at least 6-8 hours, but like any therapy, the more sessions, the better the results.
We recommend one month of consistent Whole Body Cryotherapy and then maintenance as needed. Consistent use of the Cryotherapy can extend the benefits for greater lengths of time. Over time, the decreased inflammation experience from Whole Body Cryotherapy is experienced. Clients suffering from chronic inflammation and pain in general will likely experience relief immediately.
Whole Body Cryotherapy will also increase your metabolic rate, burning 500-800 calories. In fact, Whole Body Cryotherapy used on a regular basis can help your body reset its metabolism.

How long is a Local Cryotherapy Treatment?
How often should I get Local Cryotherapy Treatments?
For pain management, muscle injury, post-injury or surgery, we recommend five consecutive Local Cryotherapy treatments spaced 1-2 days apart. For best results, we recommend doing Local Cryotherapy in conjunction with Whole Body Cryotherapy.
As a facial treatment, Local Cryotherapy can be applied pre-event (with or without make-up), or as a weekly routine to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while stimulating collagen prodeuction. Local cryotherapy is an excellent treatment as a maintenance between receiving Cryoskin Facials, Botox, or Fillers.
In any case, one of our highly qualified specialists can help guide you to the best treatment plan.

Infrared Heat & Sauna Usage
Are children allowed to use the sauna? What should I consider with this?
A general rule of thumb is 1 minute inside your sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.
Is it ok to use the sauna while breastfeeding?
Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but maybe no depending upon your specific circumstances.
What should I wear in the sauna? Can I go nude?
What time of day should I use the sauna (am or pm)?
How long is a typical session? And how often can I take a session?
Depending on your health goals, you can sign up for multiple sessions and come 3 – 4 times per week, but it is safe to use every day and at whatever heat suits you best.
What health benefits are associated with infrared heat, and which have been proven and documented?
Beyond Cryotherapy employs a Sunlighten Sauna. Sunlighten is the number one sauna in the USA, and the sauna company that has conducted the most research. The Sunlighten Sauna’s health benefits have been either clinically shown on our heaters or are based on studies of infrared wavelengths that precisely mimic in our heaters. Sunlighten saunas are proven up to 99% effective at emitting the highest quality and quantity of infrared heat required for delivering a full range of health benefits.
What is EMF? Is it harmful to the body?
EMF is everywhere in our homes and offices. The electrical appliances we use (an electric can opener at close range emits substantial EMFs), computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, wireless modems, cordless phones, clock radios, hair dryers, mobile phones, microwave ovens and more – all produce EMFs.
Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF. For that reason, we have limited the levels of EMF from our heaters as much as possible.
Sunlighten’s Saunas employ an exclusive manufacturing process to cancel out EMF’s to levels that are virtually undetectable.
What is the difference between ceramic and carbon infrared technology?
Both technologies are ways to deliver infrared heat, but ceramic rods have now been surpassed by carbon panel technology thanks to the latter’s ability to produce a more consistent infrared output at lower temperatures given its surface area. Ceramic rods must be brought to excessively high heats, resulting in hot and cold spots throughout your sauna. All Sunlighten saunas use carbon-based technology, and in fact, are the only carbon-based heaters with clinical backing.
