What about sanitation? Are your devices safe?
The LIBBE is registered with the FDA as a Class II medical device. LIBBE’s are manufactured in compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability.
Features include temperature-controlled water mixing and backflow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, water purification, and disinfecting standards. Each client has a new single-use nozzle. Each device is thoroughly cleaned in accordance with standards from the FDA, I-ACT, and Tiller Mind Body (LIBBE manufacturer). We also maintain very high standards not only for each device but for each room, bathroom, and facility as a whole.
Is it safe to V-Steam while pregnant?
No, the steam helps open the cervix, which is not safe during pregnancy.
When should I steam if I’m trying to conceive?
When trying to conceive, it is NOT safe to steam after ovulation and before menstruation/ confirmation that you are not pregnant. Therefore, when trying to conceive, only steam during your follicular phase (in-between menstruation and ovulation) and do not steam after ovulation, insemination, or IUI/IVF transfer until menstruation or a doctor confirms that you are not pregnant.
Can I V-Steam during my menstruation/ period?
No, you can not steam while on your cycle or when you have fresh spotting.
Does Colon Hydrotherapy hurt?
No, the session is relatively painless. You will be instructed on how to insert your own rectal tube which is about the size of a number 2 pencil. The tube is very tiny and only goes about an inch into the rectum.
Colon Hydrotherapy: Are you I-ACT certified?
Yes, we are certified with the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy.
Colon Hydrotherapy: Is your equipment FDA cleared?
Yes, we do use FDA cleared colon hydrotherapy tables as well as disposable rectal tubes.
Colon Hydrotherapy: Is there an odor?
There is no mess and no odor during your treatment so you can lay back and relax.
Colon Hydrotherapy: How long is a session?
The basic session lasts approximately 35-45 minutes. However, we ask you to plan a 90 minute stay for your initial visit.
Colon Hydrotherapy: What do I need to do to prepare for a session?
The more hydrated you are, the better your session will be. You may want to drink 8-10 glasses of water on the day of your session, we encourage you to stop eating at least 2 hours before your appointment time and avoid any foods or drinks that cause you excess gas. Most importantly, come relaxed and maintain a cheerful, positive and stress-free attitude.
Colon Hydrotherapy: Will I be able to drive or do other activities when I finish the session?
Yes. You should not be impaired at all.
Colon Hydrotherapy: Are there any contraindications?
Yes, although colon hydrotherapy is fine for most people, there are a few exceptions. If you have any of the following conditions, you may not be able to do colon hydrotherapy.
If in doubt, please consult with your physician.
Colon cancer, uncontrolled high blood pressure, fissures, fistulas, recent surgery, pregnancy in the first or third trimester, severe anemia, rectal bleeding, abdominal hernia, severe heart problems, renal insufficiency, cirrhosis of the liver, vascular aneurysm, or dialysis.

What is Cryo Sculpting?
Cryo Sculpting is a new form of fat freezing (cryolipolysis) and body contouring. We use the newest & most innovative cryo-aesthetics equipment currently available.
Utilizing our specialized equipment, liquid CO2 is instantly transformed into a dry gas. This hyper-cooled gas is sprayed on the treatment area at a high velocity. This allows us to achieve deeper penetration and faster cooling, overcoming the resistance of hardened fat cells.
This technique is safe, effective, and comfortable.
What is Cryolipolysis?
In simple terms, it’s a method of freezing fat cells below the skin’s surface (subcutaneous fat) in order to destroy them. By reducing fat in this manner, we are able to reshape the contours of the body in a non-invasive way.
Prior to Cryo Sculpting, the most common types of cryolipolysis treatments have been CoolSculpting, Cryoskin & Cryo T-Shock.
For more information, please see Cryolipolysis on Wikipedia.
What is liquid CO2?
Liquid CO2 is carbon dioxide gas that is highly compressed and cooled to a liquid form.
For more information, please see Supercritical carbon dioxide on Wikipedia.
What should I wear to a Cryo Sculpting appointment?
Please wear loose clothing or underwear / bathing suit which allows complete access to treatment area.
This is especially important when the following areas are being treated:
- Lower tummy/stomach
- Back upper legs / thighs
- Outer thighs
For your convenience, we also have complimentary disposable panties and bras when/if needed.
What should I do to prepare for a Cryo Sculpting appointment?
- Be sure to wear or bring the appropriate clothing (see above for details)
- Increase water intake (preferably with lemon)
- If possible, avoid caffeine day of treatment
- Do not wear / apply any creams in the treatment area
- If possible, avoid doing anything to artificially increase body temp (no warm clothes)
- In cold climates avoid using car seat heaters
- No working out / exercise before
- Skin should be free of sweat
- Note any marks, scars, or sores in treatment area prior to treatment (We’ll also bring these to your attention)
How many cryo sculpting sessions will I need?
Each individual will respond differently to a Cryo Sculpting treatment. Generally speaking, more than one treatment will be needed to see longer-lasting results.
Please see our Booking page to see our full price list and Cryo package discounts.
How long does a Cryo sculpting session last?
It depends on the area(s) being treated. We usually reserve 30 minutes for each appointment, where multiple areas can be treated during that time. Spray time per section of the treatment area is generally 3-5 minutes.
How long will it take to see results after a Cryo sculpting treatment?
It really depends on the individual, and what type of treatment we’re doing.
For example, if we’re doing some Cryo Sculpting (fat freezing) in the stomach/tummy area, some may see a result within a week of the first session. Sometimes, due to the inflammation & fat cell reduction (constriction) that results from the cold therapy, some may see some difference after the first session.
Much of the results also depend on the individual, their body, and their overall health habits. The better the individual takes care of themselves, the more likely the better result.
General rule of thumb is to plan to have at least 6 sessions over 2-3 months. If we don’t see trackable results within about 5 weeks and 3 treatments, we should take time to reassess the treatment protocols.
What are the contraindications of Cryo sculpting?
We do not recommend Cryo Sculpting for those with the following conditions:
- Cancer (active or recent)
- Pregnancy (ok for pain management or edema – but an OBGYN must sign-off)
- Blood clotting disorders
- Installed pain pumps
What should I do after a Cryo sculpting session to maximize my results?
We recommend following these best practices & guidelines:
- Continue to increase your water intake and add lemon and/or apple cider vinegar if possible
- Avoid alcohol after treatment (1 day)
- Exercise daily for 15-30 minutes
- Massage the area. Optional: wear compression clothing if available
- Avoid sugars (especially fructose), refined grains (especially gluten), and chemically modified fats
- Limit high salt foods for 1-2 days post-treatment
- Take Magnesium or Herbs such as Goldensea, Calendula, Echinacea, and Astragalus
- Do deep breathing exercises
- Perform dry brushing in sweeping motions, always toward the heart
The above are all known to promote healthy lymphatic drainage.
How does Cryotherapy work for pain management?
Our localized cryotherapy helps by reducing inflammation and rapidly cooling sore areas. The thermal shock causes the body to trigger itself into recovery/healing mode too by increasing the production of “feel-good” hormones.
- The body will increase its respiratory rate, thereby increasing oxygen intake
- Blood vessels will subsequently dilate to 4x their resting size, which helps with muscle relaxation (making muscles up to 25% looser)
- Reduces pain levels by slowing synaptic communication between nerves (somewhat acts as an opioid)
If it’s a long-term injury, our cryotherapy treatments can help temporarily relieve the symptoms.
