Customer Service

Once you arrive, we will be glad to have you tour the JUKA Cryo sauna and answer any questions that you may have regarding whole body cryotherapy treatment and our procedures.

After signing your waiver, you will be shown to the cryo sauna room, where we will go over instructions step by step on what you need to wear, how to access the sauna, and how to let us know when you are ready.

Once you are in your protective clothing, you will remove all clothing besides socks, slippers and gloves, which are provided. (Men: You need to bring cotton underwear or boxers. Women: must wear bra and underwear/spandex). You will put on the provided robe over your undergarments.

You will then flip the switch notifying staff it is ok to walk into the ICEHOUSE. 

ICEHOUSE Cryotherapy staff member will come into the room and go over the instructions with you. They will then turn on the cryo sauna and stay with you during the entire process. We will be asking for your feedback throughout the cryotherapy treatment to ensure your comfort.

We will only see your face, as the rest of your body will be in the cryo sauna. The cooled air begins, lights shine down and you instantly feel the effects of the cryo sauna healing your body, relieving your pain and rejuvenating your skin!

Then as quickly as it began, three minutes has passed, the machine is turned off, and your body instantly begins to warm back up to normal temperature. You will then spend 2 minutes on a recumbent bike allowing your body to warm up and blood to circulate through your body. 

Our staff member leaves the room, allowing you to exit the cryo sauna and get dressed in complete privacy.

The immediate effects of the cryo sauna will have already kicked in as you leave the room. Your body is re-warming. You will see slightly pink skin with goose bumps and have a warm tingling sensation as blood rushes back to your extremities. After 10-15 minutes you will notice increased energy that lasts for up to 6 hours.

IceHouse Cryotherapy was started by three elite tennis players. All three struggled with injuries, and started using cryotherapy in order to relieve daily inflammation from rugged training routines. After retiring from the sport, they opened IceHouse Cryotherapy in order to offer this cutting edge treatment to people in Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond and Seattle Area.
