- Will I feel claustrophobic in the CryoCabin?
You shouldn’t. We elevate your body by raising the floor to ensure your head is above the rim of the CryoCabin. Furthermore, the door is never locked. If needed, you can always push open the door and step out of the CryoCabin.
- Is the gasiform air (converted from liquid nitrogen) dangerous to breath?
It can be if too much is inhaled. Safety measures are built into our Cryosauna to keep the gasiform air from enveloping your head by dispersing it from the chamber. Another key piece of our technology that further enhances the safety of our clients and why our Cryosauna is the best in the world.
