Our health and wellness feature this month is all about cryotherapy. It’s described as a “non-invasive application of subzero air to help the body in the recovery process from pain, swelling, and inflammation.”
Our client concierge and operations manager Reggie Garcia signed up for the 10-day package at Cryo+Lounge on Shelbyville Road where he literally froze himself at negative 160 degrees for three minutes each day.
“It felt a little strange and uncomfortable in the beginning but I can see the benefits for muscle rehab and recovery,” explains Reggie. “I felt like my skin was tighter and I had no negative effects.”
The freezing takes place in a special dark room with music. While we have all seen athletes sit in ice baths following injuries, the temperature of negative 160 degrees in the room is markedly colder and the staff ensures a time limit of three minutes.
According to the Cryo+Therapy website: “Blood travels to the core and as it passes through the cardiovascular system, it’s cleansed of toxins and supplied with fresh oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. After exiting the machine, the body immediately begins vasodilation which returns enriched blood to the peripheral tissues that have been cleansed of toxins.”
Of course, if you are interested in trying cryotherapy, it’s smart to check with your doctor. Our time at Cryo+Lounge revealed patients looking for tighter skin or reduced inflammation, especially for joints. Localized cryotherapy is also a benefit for targeted problem areas.
