Cryotherapy for Weight Control

I recently did a web search for “cryotherapy for weight control.” There were 1,670,000 hits. Some of them had titles like “freeze away fat.” It was probably just such websites that inspired the FDA to issue a consumer update warning people away from cryotherapy. That is unfortunate.

Cryotherapy for Fibromyalgia

Last week I wrote about infrared sauna for fibromyalgia. Sauna’s ability to relieve pain and fight chronic inflammation should make it helpful in managing the condition.

CryoFacelift and Celluma Package

Since then, I have touted cryotherapy to you for muscle soreness, back pain, arthritis, and even weight control, as well as a number of other conditions. This week, I want to take another look at cryotherapy as a Read more…


Freeze & Squeeze

For a Freeze & Squeeze, you spend three minutes in the cryotherapy cabinet at a temperature of around 200 degrees below zero. Then you return to room temperature and relax in a reclining chair wearing RecoveryPump pants for 15 to 30 minutes. You can usually complete an entire Freeze & Squeeze in about 40 minutes. Read more…
