My Adventures in Cryotherapy

My Adventures in Cryotherapy

It all started last Summer when one of my more fun loving and adventurous best friends came to visit me on Eastern Long Island ...

We wanted to do some things that were “different,“ and freezing ourselves in a cylindrical tube seemed like it fit right into that category. Being naked in an ice-cold chamber sounded appealing.

I heard so many good things about cryo – from anti-aging to mood boosts to pain relieve and improved athletic performance. Cryo is touted to heal injuries, speed metabolism and improve circulation.
