This document explains the risks and benefits of the Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) session you are planning to have. It does not constitute a waiver of liability by the team who will look after you.
Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) is a treatment which involves the exposure of the whole body to very low temperatures for a short period of time. The aim is to stimulate a therapeutic response which will engender a feeling of well-being whilst helping the body recuperate from physical exertion more rapidly and effectively. The thermal shock which results from this treatment, stimulates thermo-regulatory mechanisms with anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. The effects are used as a complementary therapy for rheumatic disorders, musculoskeletal disorders such as tendinitis and back pain, chronic inflammation, and pain as well as anxiety and sleep disorders.
Before being able to benefit from WBC you need to fill in and sign a health questionnaire where you will be informed of all the contraindications to WBC. If you have any of the conditions listed, you cannot use WBC without approval from your physician. Furthermore, you will need to advise us of changes in your health situation prior to any subsequent sessions.The consumption of drugs is an absolute contra-indication for Whole Body Cryotherapy. Children under the age of 16 require a parental consent form.
