Frequently Asked Questions

Cryotherapy

What should I wear?


As long as you're completely dry when you arrive for your session, it doesn't matter what you wear to walk into the facility. Clean socks, slippers and gloves will be provided to protect your hands and feet. Other than that, you are welcome to undress to your level of comfort. Our frosted door allows your head and shoulders to show for safety reasons during your session, but you will be able to change and remove your robe in privacy should you so choose. The more skin that is exposed to the cold, the more effective your results will be! We recommend women either wear or bring a comfortable, modest sports bra. Men are required to keep on shorts, boxers or briefs during their session (we also have some on-hand). Our window is frosted to 5 feet, so if you're tall, please keep that in mind when planning your attire! Ready to give it a go?




What is cryotherapy?


“Cryo” is Latin for “icy cold,” and cryotherapy can refer to any application of ice or cold to the body (yes, even frozen peas)! Whole body cryotherapy (WBC), more specifically, is the application of dry, hyper-cooled air to the whole body for the purposes of regeneration, performance improvement, recovery, energy, and relief from pain and inflammation. Whole body cryotherapy is colder than any cold on earth, but much more pleasant than comparable solutions like ice baths. The air is de-humidified and treatment time is short, so while you’ll reach record low temperatures, the experience causes little discomfort other than a refreshing chill. Cryotherapy aids your body's own healing processes by improving vagal tone, enhancing circulation, increasing Heart Rate Variability (HRV), removing waste and fluid buildup, decreasing inflammation and boosting energy naturally! You’ll be in and out before you know it. In fact, the most common reaction we get from first-time whole body cryotherapy users is, “was that all?”

What machine do you use?


We do not skimp on quality at GameDay Ready Recovery Zone, and we are proud to introduce Dallas’s very first all-electric whole body cryotherapy chamber- Everest Cryo! The LA Lakers, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills all trust the same cryo that we have for their recovery. It is the safest, most efficient machine on the market, eliminating the need for liquid nitrogen and optimizing the amazing benefits of cryo with a "wind chill" factor! The experience is completely customizable from color to intensity to treatment time and eliminates the nuisance of pre-cool times and empty tanks. Everest Cryo has our largest and most spacious interior ever, and we’ve recently renovated our space to add in two private changing areas.

Ready to give it a go?




Is it safe?


Because our electric unit is nitrogen-free, we are THE safest place to go for cryo in Dallas. The air used in whole body cryotherapy only runs over the surface of the skin and treatment times are no longer than 3 minutes 30 seconds, so there is no threat of frostbite or hypothermia. All of our Recovery Specialists are certified to administer cryotherapy and undergo rigorous training, education and multiple exams before being allowed to operate our machines. While whole body cryotherapy is safe for most people, we recommend consulting your physician before beginning any new wellness routine.

Ready to give it a go?




Can I do cryo if I have implants, screws, rods or disks?


Yes. The air used in Whole Body Cryotherapy only runs over the surface of the skin no more than 0.5mm deep. Any type of implants, screws, rods, disks and cosmetics are safe.

Ready to give it a go?




I have a unique condition. Is cryo safe for me?


We highly recommend consulting your physician before beginning any new wellness routine. Individuals who are sunburned, pregnant, feel ill, or have:

  • High blood pressure

  • History of heart attacks, heart disease or vascular issues

  • A cardiac pacemaker

  • History of strokes or seizures

  • Fever within 24 hours

  • Blood clots or bleeding disorders

  • Symptomatic lung disorders

  • Adverse reactions to the cold

  • Any other serious medical conditions

Should NOT use whole body cryotherapy.

If you have Raynaud's Syndrome, we suggest you consult your physician before using whole body cryotherapy and let a Recovery Specialist know so we can provide you extra socks and gloves.




How long does cryo take?


Cryotherapy sessions are brief, lasting no longer than 3 minutes 30 seconds. For your first session, we strongly recommend opting for a shorter beginner-level session to allow your body to acclimate to the extreme cold safely and gradually.

First time visitors should budget 15 total minutes of time to sign our waiver, change clothes and allow a Recovery Specialist to walk you through what to expect during your session. We are committed to your safety and comfort during your first “freeze,” so please help us help you by arriving early!

Ready to give it a go?




Does it hurt?


No! Whole body cryotherapy is quite cold, but you should feel no pain during your session. You may experience a tingling sensation when your body warms back up as fresh blood flows back into your extremities. You will not be in cryotherapy long enough for frostbite or hypothermia to take place but if you do feel any discomfort, let a Recovery Specialist know immediately so we can stop your session and take the appropriate measures. All of our Recovery Specialists are certified cryotherapy operaters and undergo rigorous training, education and multiple exams to ensure your safety.

Ready to give it a go?




How often should I do cryo?


We recommend cryotherapy 2-3 times per week for the best results and to prevent acclimation to the cold temperatures. There is no need to do cryotherapy every day, and doing so may actually diminish its effectiveness. Remember, the "shock factor" is what makes this therapy powerful! Stop by our Recovery Zone a few times a week to maximize the benefits of cryo.

For some extenuating circumstances, we may allow brief periods of “two-a-day” cryotherapy sessions, but this protocol should not be used for longer than two weeks at a time and only by individuals undergoing serious training or physical endeavors (such as training for a marathon or other strenuous activity).

Ready to give it a go?




When is the best time to do cryo?


There is no "right" or "wrong" time to come in for a whole body cryotherapy session! Some individuals prefer to stop by for a pre-workout boost of energy, others for a post-workout recovery. Some like to come in the mornings to wake up for the day, others in the afternoon to unwind and refresh their bodies after work. Talk to a Recovery Specialist about what your goals are, and they can help recommend a routine that's suited to you! Ready to give it a go?




Why do I need it?


Cryotherapy is an amazing solution for fatigue, sluggishness, pain and inflammation, overuse injuries, post-workout recovery, better sleep and a good old-fashioned mood boost. Cryotherapy can improve Heart Rate Variability (HRV), which helps your body adapt to stress and improve performance. Cryotherapy also works by stimulating the vagus nerve in your cervical spine, responsible for activating your parasympathetic nervous system. The "thrill of the chill" is balanced with improved vagal tone, which calms and relaxes the mind and body all day long. It is an exhilarating experience that rejuvenates, refreshes and recharges your body for whatever your game is today!

Ready to give it a go?




Am I old enough to do cryo?


You must be 13 years of age or older to do cryotherapy.

If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must consent via a signed digital or physical waiver before you are able to use any of our services.





Red Light Therapy

I have a unique condition, is red light therapy safe for me?


We highly recommend consulting your physician before beginning any new wellness routine. Individuals who are pregnant, sensitive to light, feel ill or have:

  • History of seizures
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Should NOT use red light therapy.

If you are diabetic, consult with your physician and check insulin levels before treatment.




What machine do you use, and why is it more effective than others?


We are proud to call ourselves home to the highest-quality, most technologically advanced red light therapy bed on the market, the newest Theralight 360. Completely customizable to address a wide variety of concerns and conditions, TheraLight features sessions for:

  • Immunity

How is red light therapy different from Halotherapy?


See our blog post here for more information on how these two therapies differ!




Am I old enough to do red light therapy?


You must be 13 years of age or older to do red light therapy.

If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must consent via a signed digital or physical waiver before you are able to use any of our services.




What is red light therapy?


Red light therapy is also known as PBMT (photobiomodulation therapy) and low-level laser therapy. Similar to a plant absorbing sunlight, our bodies also absorb and respond positively to specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light. Our TheraLight uses targeted dosages of this light to promote cellular recovery and the production of cellular energy (ATP). Red light therapy has been clinically proven to rid the body of oxidative stress, the foundation of virtually every disease known to man.

Ready to give it a go?




Why do I need it?


Want boosted immunity, enhanced performance, shorter recovery times, clearer skin, more energy, better sleep, or targeted help for injury and inflammation? Look no further than TheraLight, the most advanced recovery solution we offer at GameDay Ready Recovery Zone.

Extensive research during the last two decades has shown that too much oxidative stress in the body directly contributes to muscle damage, depression, neurodegenerative conditions, virus-induced inflammation, cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions. Red light therapy is a safe, effective and drug-free solution that has been proven to destroy the free radicals that cause oxidative stress, reducing pain and inflammation at the source: your cells. Red light therapy has NO side effects, is non-invasive and non-toxic.

Ready to give it a go?




How does it work?


Ready to nerd out? During a TheraLight session, optimized wavelengths of red and near-infrared light penetrate deep into the skin and tissues, where they are absorbed by chromophores into the mitochondria ("power house”) of the body’s cells. This very specific kind of light has been clinically proven to increase cell proliferation, promote circulation, boost cellular energy (ATP) production, destroy free radicals, reduce inflammation and heal damaged, overworked muscles. Ready to give it a go?




It looks like a tanning bed... is it dangerous?


No. Unlike tanning beds, red light therapy doesn't use UV light. TheraLight is non-toxic, non-invasive, and side-effect free, making it the safest recovery solution in the industry. There are few contraindications, and zero risk of over-exposure.

Ready to give it a go?




What should I expect my first time?


First time red light therapy sessions are typically 10 minutes in duration, but we suggest you budget 20 minutes total to allow yourself time to check-in, change and ask a Recovery Specialist any questions you may have. If you've never been to GameDay Ready Recovery Zone before, we will ask you to sign a waiver and give you a tour of our store! During red light therapy, you will lie back and relax in a sanitized, enclosed bed. It doesn’t feel warm, but the light gets quite bright! We will provide a clean eye mask for you to use and you can disrobe in your private room to your comfort level. The more surface area of the skin that is exposed to TheraLight, the more effective your results will be. After your session, you may feel more relaxed than usual! Most benefits tend to compound with continued use over the course of 3-10 sessions.

Ready to give it a go?




How long does it take to see results?


Your response to red light therapy is as unique as your fingerprint! Depending on your goals, you may start seeing results after 3-10 sessions. Acute injuries, muscle aches and pains, general inflammation and skin conditions typically show quicker improvement and may resolve after 2-4 sessions. Repetitive stress or chronic conditions can take longer to yield maximum results and may require ongoing sessions. Talk to a Recovery Specialist about your goals and they will be able to recommend a routine tailored to you!

Ready to give it a go?




How long is a session?


TheraLight sessions are completely customized and can last from 10-20 minutes. We suggest allowing yourself ample time for check-in and changing clothes when scheduling your appointment! Ready to give it a go?





Halotherapy Infrared Sauna

What is Halotherapy?


Halotherapy is an infrared salt sauna that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Microparticles of salt are dispensed into the room for 20 minutes and circulate in the air for the duration of your session. Combined with infrared heat, salt promotes respiratory health, detoxification and relaxation. Breathing salty air destroys bacteria, expands your airways and relieves symptoms of congestion, allergies and asthma. Salt's antibacterial properties also have benefits for your skin... oh, and did we mention it's ultra-relaxing? Enjoy the ambiance of chromotherapy and a bluetooth speaker during your session and sweat out a hard day's work! Ready to give it a go?




How long is a session?


Each Halotherapy session is 45 minutes long. Please plan to spend one hour in our Recovery Zone to allow for changing and check-in time. Ready to give it a go?




Can I do cryotherapy and Halotherapy during the same visit?


Yes, but please book your cryotherapy session FIRST to ensure your skin is dry and sweat-free for your "freeze"! Ready to give it a go?




I have a unique condition. Is Halotherapy safe for me?


We highly recommend consulting your physician before beginning any new wellness routine. Individuals who feel ill or have:

  • Active tuberculosis

  • Contagious conditions

  • Late-stage lung cancer

  • Fever within 24 hours

  • Open wounds/sores

  • History of heart attacks, heart disease or vascular issues

  • A cardiac pacemaker

Should NOT use Halotherapy.




How is Halotherapy different from red light therapy?


See our blog post here for more information on how these two therapies differ!




Why infrared?


Infrared saunas heat the body directly and stimulate your lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems better than traditional saunas that only heat the air. Infrared heat also allows for better respiratory absorption of the salty air in your Halotherapy session, helping you breathe easier. Get ready to leave your Halotherapy session sweaty!

Ready to give it a go?




Why do I need it?


Halotherapy is one of the most relaxing therapies we have at GameDay Ready Recovery Zone. It detoxifies, improves circulation and promotes proper respiratory, lymphatic and immune function. Infrared saunas work more effectively than traditional saunas by directly heating the body and our added salt feature will have you breathing better than ever! Ready to give it a go?




How often should I do Halotherapy?


Because Halotherapy is used for general relaxation and detoxification, you may use it as often as once a day, or whenever you need a pick-me-up! Most of our clients schedule weekly appointments to continue seeing the benefits. Ready to give it a go?




Am I old enough to do Halotherapy?


You must be 13 years of age or older to do Halotherapy.

If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must consent via a signed digital or physical waiver before you are able to use any of our services.

This means a long-term solution to pain, injury and inflammation so you can get back in the game! You can expect a bit more intensity than a normal stretching session, but we guarantee you’ll be feeling and moving better than ever.




What should I wear?


We recommend you wear casual athletic clothes that you feel comfortable moving in. Depending on the area of concern, your therapist may recommend removing top articles of clothing, so women should wear or bring a comfortable, modest sports bra. We are actively hiring new therapists and plan to re-introduce this service soon.





Compression Therapy

How long does a session take?


Session time is customizable and can run anywhere from 10-60 minutes. To receive the full benefits of NormaTec, we suggest at least 30 minutes of compression on the same area. Ready to give it a go?

Think of it like getting your blood pressure taken, but over a large area and with patented pulse patterns that mimic the pump of your muscles themselves.

  • Fractures or bone breaks

  • Open wounds

What's inside of the boots?


NormaTec attachments use only compressed air to massage your limbs. There is no water or fluid in the boots! Ready to give it a go?




What areas can I focus on?


We have NormaTec attachments for legs, hips and arms. Our classic leg boots come in long, short and regular lengths. Each attachment is designed to circulate blood and mobilize fluids toward the heart, so our leg attachments will start at the feet and pulse upward, hips will start at the mid-thigh and pulse up to the lower back, and arms will start at the fingertips and pulse in toward the torso. Ready to give it a go?




Am I old enough to do compression therapy?


You must be 13 years of age or older and the NormaTec attachments must fit appropriately on your limbs in order to safely use compression therapy.

Our nurses are experienced in the administration of IV in both hospital and retail settings and can address any concerns you may have the day of your appointment. During your appointment, they will monitor the progress of your “drip” frequently to ensure you are comfortable and that your body is responding how it should. We boast nothing but positive reviews of the IV therapy experience and to this date, we have not had anyone report a negative experience or reaction.

You’re not the only one! Many regular users of IV therapy have had the same concern and have been pleasantly surprised by how easy and uneventful their session was. Our registered nurses are extremely experienced and trained to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your IV. Any discomfort is no more than a brief prick, and a flexible plastic catheter is used to administer your cocktail. We promise the benefits you’ll see far outweigh any jitters you might get, but please let our nurses know in advance if you are nervous! They’ll be able to take measures to put you right at ease.

Why do I need it?


We have cocktails to help with everything from sports performance to beauty to immunity! Unlike oral supplements, IV guarantees 100% absorption and delivery of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants to the body’s cells. Digestive dysfunction and inflammatory diet may inhibit your body’s ability to fully absorb nutrients from your food into the blood (and lets be honest, who eats enough veggies?), so IV is the perfect pick-me-up to help you feel better, faster! Ready to give it a go?




What is IV therapy?


IV therapy intravenously delivers vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and electrolytes to the body. Through bypassing the digestive system, this treatment ensures 100% absorption and immediate delivery of key nutrients to the body's cells (unlike oral supplements, which may or may not be fully absorbed). IV therapy is safe and effective at filling the "gaps" in our diets while maximizing the body's ability to recover quickly and perform optimally! Ready to give it a go?




Am I old enough to get an IV?


You must be 16 years of age or older to receive an IV. Additionally, your parent or legal guardian must accompany you to your first appointment.

If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must consent via a signed digital or physical waiver before you are able to use any of our services.




What should I expect my first time?


Our registered nurses are experts at IV administration in both hospital and retail settings, so you'll be in good hands! When you come in for an IV, you'll need to sign a digital or physical waiver if it's your first time to GameDay Ready Recovery Zone. After that, you'll be handed some intake forms to fill out in our lounge area. A nurse will greet you and review any medical concerns, ask you what type of cocktail and boosters you'd like, and guide you through any questions you may have. They will use the same sanitary procedures hospitals use when administering IVs, and the experience will be virtually painless! During your IV, the nurse will monitor your progress and ensure your comfort. After the drip is finished, you'll be given some sterile gauze and self-adhesive tape to wear for 10 minutes, and you'll be GameDay Ready in no time! Ready to give it a go?




How long does getting an IV take?


The time it takes to get an IV depends greatly on your age, gender, hydration level, overall stature and size of your veins. Some of our cocktails include extra fluids, which will add to your total appointment time. The IV itself can take anywhere from 20-45 minutes, but we recommend budgeting an hour for your entire appointment to allow time for check-in and paperwork. Ready to give it a go?





Chiropractic

Who is your chiropractor?


Dr. Alyssa Obata DC is our resident chiropractor, bringing her sports background and diversified technique to help athletes of all kinds at GameDay Ready Recovery Zone perform, move and feel their best. She was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii where she grew up playing basketball and soccer. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology and Nutrition Science at Whittier College in Southern California, Dr. Alyssa went on to study at Parker University in Dallas where she graduated as a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic in 2019.




What should I wear?


We recommend you wear casual athletic clothes that you feel comfortable moving in. Depending on the area of concern, Dr. Alyssa may recommend removing layers or top articles of clothing, so women should wear or bring a comfortable, modest sports bra or form-fitting tank top.




Am I old enough to see your chiropractor?


Dr. Alyssa sees children as young as 3 years of age.

If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must consent via a signed digital or physical waiver and a chiropractic consent form before you are able to see Dr. Alyssa.




I have a unique condition. Is chiropractic care safe for me?


Chiropractic care is safe for most people. Individuals who have:

  • Untreated and uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Fractures or bone breaks
  • Open wounds

Should consult with their physician before undergoing chiropractic treatment.




Does it hurt?


Chiropractic care should not cause you pain. You may feel some discomfort during your appointment during muscle and/or deep tissue work, but it is typically mild and does not indicate a problem. Soreness after your appointment may also occur due to Dr. Alyssa adjusting and mobilizing parts of the body that may have not moved in a while; however, applying ice and drinking lots of water should help ease any aches and pains.




Why do I need chiropractic care?


Dr. Alyssa provides tailored solutions for your individual needs and goals. Chiropractic care improves mobility, increases range of motion, enhances sports performance, promotes proper musculoskeletal mechanics and function, reduces pain, prevents injury and strengthens the body through proper alignment. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, chiropractic care helps restore mobility to stuck joints and bones to prevent pain. If you're active, pre-activity is the best time to get adjusted to ensure your body is properly aligned and prepared for exercise, but there are also benefits to chiropractic care at any time.




Why focus on the spine?


Your spine houses and protects your spinal cord, the most crucial component of your nervous system. It controls everything from muscular movement to organ function to neural pathways and transmission of messages from the brain to the body. Simply put, when your spine is mis-aligned, your body will not function properly. Dr. Alyssa's chiropractic philosophy centers on the spine and works outward to ensure your body moves properly from the source.




What should I expect my first time?


A first-time visit with Dr. Alyssa will take about 30 minutes. However, you should plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment to allow ample time to fill out a waiver and a chiropractic consent form. Dr. Alyssa will review your medical history and concerns and ask about your individual goals for chiropractic treatment. She will perform a detailed consultation with you and explain any adjustment or muscle work that needs to be done in order to improve your alignment and mobility. An appointment generally consists of a combination of trigger point therapy, muscle work and adjustment. Dr. Alyssa will review at-home care with you after your appointment and schedule you for any needed follow-up! One thing is for sure - you will leave feeling better than ever.




How long does an appointment take?


First-time appointments include a consultation and take approximately 30 minutes. We suggest arriving at least 10 minutes early for your first appointment to allow for time to fill out paperwork before your appointment. Return appointments take approximately 15 minutes.




How often should I see a chiropractor?


Depending on your unique goals, your ongoing care will vary. Dr. Alyssa's approach is tailored to each individual and she will recommend a protocol that fits your goals, body and lifestyle!
