A -140 degrees Celsius Cryotherapy for The Busy Boss Ladies?
As the owner and founder of Women On Topp, I have a lot of work pressure, meetings to attend and a very little time to work out. …Uhmm.. I do have time to work out but let’s be honest, we all need that one thing in our lives that doesn’t take a lot of time, but will help us to feel incredibly regenerated and good.
We all know being under extreme amounts of stress can not only affect our health, it can also damage our performance and productivity. So in order to ensure that we’re at the top of our game, we need to actively alleviate this pressure. You can do this by visiting a cryotherapy. I’ve been visiting Cryofit, which is located in Amstelveen, in the Netherlands. It’s perfect for the Dutch Boss Ladies among us. I’m sure there’s one near your place too if you look up for it.
In this post, I’ll be discussing why cryotherapy can help you tackle workload stress. BUT not only that, it can help us boss ladies, become more healthy and look more gorgeous. Give Cryofit Cryotherapy a try, and leave a comment below if you’ve got more stress-busting tips to share.
When I was told by a friend about how Cryofit Cryotherapy was able to ease stress I jumped at the chance to try it.
But me being me, I did a small research about the therapy before I tried it out. I learned via cryofit.nl that people love cryotherapy because it also activates collagen production and tightens skin, reduces cellulite & makes your metabolism work 3x faster, decreases injury recovery time by up to 50%, reduces itching in serious skin diseases (score… I have psoriasis), and many more.
Why would anyone do this?
The first thing I noticed was how much the cryo looked like a giant freezer. This ‘GIANT FREEZER’ is set to -140 degrees, and you stay in there for about three minutes. When I first saw this, the only thing I could think of was: ‘’Why would anyone do this?’’. It looked sooo scary and cold. But I tried it anyway. They made sure I was totally ready and then they turned the chamber on, it started off slow and not too terrible. I watched as the temperature dropped from low, to lower, to lower, to lower until it had reached NEGATIVE 140 Celsius degrees. At one point Bob (the super awesome owner) said to me, You’ve made it 1 minute!’’ And I was thinking, ‘’1 minute? Howwww has it not been 3 minutes already!?’’
I felt my whole body was overtaken by the ice cold air. Seriously I didn’t know what I was doing. I kept jumping all around to try to warm up my body, but it didn’t seem to help. They told me to stand still and try to relax. But the only thing going through my mind was how to escape the cryo. Eventually, my time was up and I couldn’t wait to get out. I was freezing.
Alive from being frozen
The second I got out of the Cryo, I definitely had a boost of energy, but it was only because I felt alive from being frozen which felt like heaven!
After that, it felt like my skin looked a lot smoother, instantly, with a healthy glow. My body felt tight, and my blood was pumping. It wasn’t bad at all for a first time experience, the cold wasn’t unbearable. I felt totally relaxed drove right home and fell right asleep, which I have to admit wasn’t ideal in the middle of a busy afternoon.
All in all, the coolest thing about it is that it’s basically a wellness treatment for us busy ladies who are SUPER busy and on-the-go and only have 10 minutes to spare. You just get there, park your car, receive your treatment and only 10 minutes have passed. I think that’s pretty cool… Especially with the fast-moving world, we live in and the trouble we often have finding time to take care of ourselves.
I’ve also been back to Cryofit since my first experience. I think to truly see benefits, you have to do it often (at least weekly). I will definitely visit occasionally. You should give it a try, take your friends with you, it will be fun you will enjoy seeing your friends freeze for three minutes. lol.
