Good Day World!
The topic today is Cryotherapy.
Are you looking to reduce psychological stress, insomnia, rheumatism, muscle and joint pain, and various skin conditions?
Then chill out.
All you have to do is expose your body to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -240 F). You do this by getting in a cryogenic sauna/chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes. It’ll lower your skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors.
In other words, your supposed to feel great after freezing your ass (and other parts) off!
Clothing worn during the treatment is minimal: for women clothing is optional while for men genitals have to be covered with cotton underwear to avoid getting “blue balls!” (Just kidding – but men do have to cover up their family jewels.)
During the 1.5-3min session the average skin temperature drops to 10 °C (50 °F), while the coldest skin temperature can be 0 °C (32 °F). The core body temperature remains unchanged throughout the process, however, it may drop slightly afterwards.
Professional athletes have been doing cryogenic thing for years now. It was first used in Japan (1978), but has been redefined by a group of Polish scientists who took the idea and made Whole Body Cryotherapy the physical therapy it is today.
There’s little doubt in my mind that this therapy is expensive. If I didn’t have such an aversion to bitter coldness, I’d try it out. I’m also cheap, and would probably try the therapy at home first in our deep freezer in the garage!
Until I get that desperate, I think I’ll stick to what I’m doing now.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
