The idea is to expose as much of the skin as possible to the cold. Men usually wear sports shorts, underwear or swim suits. Ladies usually wear bikini or sports shorts and a top. Warm comfortable socks are required. Additionally, you are required to wear thermal gloves and thick boots to protect your hands and feet which we provide. We also provide a full length robe to allow you to stay covered up until you enter the chamber.
NO WET BODY PARTS. No sweat or perspiration on your skin. No wet hair. Your body must be completely dry. The cold temperatures will quickly freeze any moisture. Do not put deodorant nor moisturizing lotion on your skin right before you come.
NO METAL ITEMS. Do not wear any bikini or Bra tops which have metal wires or metal clasps. Earrings are ok since your head will not be exposed. However, NO body piercings , NO metal necklaces, NO metal bracelets and NO watches. You can leave your wedding ring on because it will be covered by the thermal gloves.
NO OPEN WOUNDS. No cuts or scratches that are bleeding,
