It sounds more like torture than relaxation, but we reckon it’s worth freezing for.
It’s called Cryo and is a health treatment that helps with weight loss, muscle stress, is anti-aging and gives you a huge energy burst.
Cryo started in Japan, as a medical treatment tot help patients with rheumatoid arthritis. It has since been used as a drug-free treatment alternative. It can also help with your sleep.
Bondi Beauty founder, Renae, road tested Cryo over three sessions, and this is what she found.
“I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself in for the first time I went to a Cryo session, but the whole setting is super professional and leaps ahead of a traditional beauty salon.
You are ushered into a white, clean private cubicle where the doors zoom open much like a spacecraft and a small TV screen pops up with a full explanation of the treatment you are about to have.”
“You strip off and into a robe, and after a few minutes the other side of the cubicle has remote doors that open and you step out to meet your therapist.
The cryo unit itself is cylindrical with a door that pops open and cool nitrogen mist pouring out, again much like a space ship.
You wear gloves, warm socks and ugg boots, and any jewellery has to be taken off.
Once inside it is confronting as it is quite literally freezing ( for me it was -110 degrees), and you are recommended to stay in for 2 minutes the first time.
Like many things in life this is all about will power. You have to switch off your body’s reaction to scream and say ‘get me the heck out of here’ and just well, go with it.
You can move around in the limited space, which helped me, and made the time pass much quicker.
The results for me? My muscles felt more relaxed, my skin glowed and I had more energy.”
It costs $90 a session. Check it out here: www.cryo.com.au
