Hope you are having a great week and enjoyed the snow days we had in KC. This weather is just crazy! But I think the cold season is over and I am so excited for a REAL Summer! Aren’t you?
But anyway, today I want to share with you about my first section of Cryotherapy at Bare Med Spa last week. I had never heard about it before while living in Brazil, so when I saw that they offered it at Bare Med Spa I was really excited to freeze… haha!
I know some of you are probably thinking… But what is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a treatment that you basically go inside of a big freezer for 2 to 3 min. where they use liquid nitrogen sprayed into the air to bring the temperature down (the duration of each section depends on your body resistance). This treatment is very common among professional athletes and people who have high muscle impact because of the fast and effective results it offers.
Some benefits of the Cryotherapy Treatment:
- It reduces muscle pain and soreness
- Speeds up recovery
- Help to improve joints function
- Increase the collagen production
- Helps to reduce cellulite
- Can burn up to 800 depending of the time and body metabolism
How does it work?
First, Tracy asked me to take off my clothes and wear a robe. Then I wore gloves, socks up to my knees and a special shoe. After I was properly dressed, I went inside of the big tube leaving my head out of the icy area, took the robe off and literally FROZE for 3 minutes. So for you to have an idea, my skin temperature was around 32 F after I was done.
I need to say that the short freeze was SUPER WORTH IT. My muscles felt so relaxed afterwards and to be honest, it is NOT bad at all. It goes by really fast and when you start to feel the “ice burn”, it is time to step off the tube. So, don’t be scared… The Bare Med staff are super nice and they will always make sure you feel as more comfortable as possible.
I sure wish I had that years ago when I played college volleyball. Back then, we had to stay more than 10 minutes in the ice bath after EVERY practice during preseason, NOT FUN.. hahaha!
During the March Madness, each section is $25. They are normally $45, so hurry up!!
IMPORTANT: They only offer the Cryotherapy treatment at the Downtown Kansas City location at 1230 Walnut Street, Kansas City MO 64106.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend and let me know what you think if you ever do a Cryotherapy section!
Kisses and hugs
