The time in the chamber itself lasts a maximum of 4 minutes. Your visit with us will also include compression therapy, localized cryotherapy, and the infrared sauna*. We recommend giving yourself about 30-40 minutes to fully enjoy all services NWCI has to offer.
*New client Groupon purchases only include up to 4 minutes in the chamber and 5 minutes in the infrared sauna. Upgrades to your Groupon can be made upon check-in if you wish to experience the rest.
