What's the point?
I had the privilege of heading into NYC's Advanced Cryo, located in SoHo, and trying out the Cryotherapy and topical Cryo. I loved the whole experience but even more so, put to rest any doubts I had about this wellness service. The Whole Body Cryotherapy was a 3 minute freezing but oddly refreshing chamber in which you stand in, naked, allowing your body temperature to drop as well as core temperature. Since it is such an isolated freeze, without wind or humidity, it is similar to an ice bath.
The benefits include:
Reduces inflammation and soreness
Increases energy and reduces fatigue
Allows for more vigorous exercise
Boosts blood circulation
Improves muscle and joint function
Improves immune function
According to Advanced Cryo, "treating sore muscles with ice reduces inflammation and alleviates pain. In the same way, briefly chilling the entire top skin layer brings relief to everything beneath it. Whole body cryotherapy is a holistic, noninvasive way to care for soft tissue, internal organs and the nervous system. Studies have shown that it also improves dexterity in skin cells and promotes new growth."
They also offer localized Cryotherapy, which was done to my face.
A Cryofacial procedure uses a device that will direct vaporized liquid nitrogen around the face and neck. It started out refreshingly cold but then I could really feel the nitrogen sort of freezing my face. It was a great feeling though, immediately I felt refreshed and renewed.
They also offer other services, such as IV Micronutrients, which is next on my list to try. There are countless Micronutrient blends or cocktails as they call them, that offer hydration, nutrient boosters, stress relief and body repair.
As a fitness addict, wellness ambassador and beauty critic, I'm telling you that this place should be a must go on your life path. The ambience and staff are just as amazing as the treatments as well.
