Whole Body Cryotherapy Risks Risks of Whole Body Cryotherapy include, but not limited to: fluctuations in blood pressure (due to peripheral vasoconstriction, systolic blood pressure may briefly increase by up to 10 points during the session. This effect should reverse after the end of the session, as peripheral circulation returns to normal), allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), claustrophobia, anxiety, activation of some viral conditions (cold sores) etc. due to stimulation of the immune system. One primary inherent risk of Whole Body Cryotherapy is skin sensitivity and skin irritation. It is impossible to predict how client’s skin will react during or after Whole Body Cryotherapy.
