What do I bring/wear?
The more skin exposed during cryotherapy, the better. However, we recommend wearing your choice of the following:
Men: Underwear or underwear and sports shorts Women: Underwear/sports shorts/swimwear/crop top/singlet
We will provide you with a Cryo Kit to take care of your extremities during your session – mask, mittens, ear muffs, socks and shoes.
If you did not make payment online, you will also need to bring a debit or credit card, as we DO NOT ACCEPT CASH.
What will happen during my cryotherapy session?
Upon arrival we will provide you with a Cryo Kit (mask, mittens, ear muffs, socks and shoes) to wear during your session as well as a robe to wear while you’re waiting to enter the chamber. If required, you can change into your chosen minimal clothing in our change rooms and secure any belongings in one of the keypad lockers. You will then enter the chamber for a maximum of 3 minutes under our crew member’s supervision. Afterwards, you will have the option to do some light movement on our bikes to stimulate your blood flow.
You’ll then be able to get on with your day! As the air in the chamber is dry, there is no need to shower afterwards or re-apply make-up.

The cryotherapy chamber is 2150mm in length and 2100mm in width. It can fit a maximum of 4 people at one time, so you have the option to experience cryotherapy with others!
What if I feel uncomfortable during the session?
You may exit the chamber at any time if you start to feel uncomfortable or distressed. The chamber doors cannot be locked.
Is there an age limit?
Yes, you must be at least 16 years old. Please note if you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent or guardian sign a consent waiver in person prior to your session.
Should I exercise before or after cryotherapy treatment?
Cryotherapy is great for recovery however, we advise waiting an hour after exercise to ensure the exercise-induced inflammatory response is not interrupted. After your cryotherapy session, you have the option to do some light movement on our bikes to stimulate your blood flow.
Can I do multiple sessions in one day?
You can undertake a maximum of two cryotherapy sessions in one day, at least 15 minutes apart. Our team will assess when it is safe for you to have your second session.
Is cryotherapy safe?
Yes, our cryotherapy chamber is the safest in Australia as it electrically cooled as opposed to using liquid nitrogen.
It is important however to ensure the following: • You don’t have any conditions that preclude you from whole body cryotherapy (please review our Alchemy Cryo Conditions and consult your doctor if you have any concerns). • You are feeling well on the day. • You are completely dry before you come in for a cryotherapy session. Face towels can be provided to assist. • You follow our Alchemy Cryo Safety Instructions.
