You’ve probably seen pictures of whole body cryotherapy equipment showing temperatures as low as -179° Celsius/-290° Fahrenheit or you’ve read articles touting temperatures as low as -284°F, which would be -175°C. Unbelievable that someone could withstand these temperatures, much less benefit from them, right?
Well, yeah, that’s right: a person could not withstand, let alone benefit from exposure to temperatures THAT cold.
So, what’s the real deal? What are these -150°C (-238°F) and -175°C (-283°F) temperatures?
Let’s think about a cryosauna. The temperature of the air in the cabin (which is the air that actually touches your body) is what needs to be measured. The Alpha Cryo cryotherapy machine measures the temperature in two places.
First, it measures the nitrogen gas cooling the cryosauna and it is typically set around -185°C/-301°F. Second, it measures the temperature within the cryosauna. And this is the true temperature of your whole body cryotherapy experience!
So, when you come to Alpha Cryo, you will enjoy the true experience, not the myth.
