Whole Body Cryotherapy: A Step-by-Step Guide to a Session at The Well Lounge in Newtown, PA

Experience Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) at The Well Lounge, Newtown, PA. Attached to the Newtown Athletic Club, we offer cutting-edge Cryobuilt Everest Peak cryotherapy– providing pain relief, athletic recovery, enhanced well-being, and more. 

WBC is an innovative  holistic wellness treatment that exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures for short periods. While rooted in ancient historical practices, cryotherapy’s popularity is rapidly growing throughout the fitness, biohacking, wellness, and health industries due to the various physical and mental health benefits it offers. This article will guide you on what to expect during a cryotherapy session at The Well Lounge.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Cryotherapy Session


Upon arrival at our practice, you’ll be welcomed to The Well Lounge by our wellness team. They will guide you to complete check-in at an iPad kiosk stand. If you have any questions, our team is ready to help!


Once you are checked-in, one of our team members will ensure the Cryo Chamber is ready for use. You will then enter the Cryo Treatment Room and change into appropriate attire– we recommend minimal clothing such as basic workout attire. We provide optional gloves, ear muffs, face masks, and clogs to protect temperature sensitive areas. Please remove any jewelry and ensure your skin is dry before entering the cryotherapy chamber.


To personalize your experience, you will make selections for your session on the Cryo iPad. These include Cold Intensity Level, Lighting Colors, and Session Duration. 


Cryo Intensity Level:

      • Beginner: Feels like –140°F with light winds.
      • Intermediate: Feels like –150°F with moderate winds.
      • Cryo Pro: Feels like –166°F with high winds.
      • Cryo Extreme: Feels like –175°F+ with extreme winds.

Lighting Selection:

      • Approach Color: The initial light color in the chamber.
      • Ascent Color: The color the lights change to during the session, indicating time progression.

Timing Selection:

      • Minimum: 30 Seconds
      • Maximum: 3 Minutes and 30 Seconds. 
      • You can adjust the time using the arrow buttons on the Cryo Timer.

During the session, you’ll experience an initial cold sensation, which will stabilize as your body adapts. The lights in the chamber will change from your selected approach color to your chosen ascent color, helping you track the session’s progress.



When the session is complete, you will exit the chamber and tap the “CHAMBER SAFE” button on the Cryo iPad – this ensures you have exited the chamber safely. You can then get dressed and exit the Cryo room.
