KXAN VISITS CRYO BODY WORKS
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Welcome to the future, where instead of just an ice bath, you can choose a nitrogen-fueled cryo chamber.
“It’s essentially kind of like an advanced ice bath,” Caulen Lauria, owner of Cryo Body Works, said. “We’re dealing with cold exposure to stimulate nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory-rich blood flow for a variety of different benefits.”
At Cryo Body Works in North Austin, treatment lasts for a maximum of three minutes in a chamber set to -220 degrees Fahrenheit.
[It] has to be that cold to get proper effects,” Lauria said. “That’s all your skin can allowably tolerate.”
Speaking from experience, three minutes is plenty of time.
“There’s a systemic release of anti-inflammatory cytokines and proteins that takes place from your body’s exposure to this temperature change,” Lauria said.
Cryotherapy has become a go-to for high-level athletes wanting to recover, including at Texas, where Tom Herman is always emphasizing his team takes care of its bodies.
“It’s part of the ingrained culture of who we are,” Herman said. “We take that very seriously. It’s what we call being a pro. These guys, guys in the NFL, they spend a lot of time and money on their bodies because that’s their living.”
Raiders receiver Antonio Brown was trying to do just that, but reports say he entered a cryo chamber without proper footwear.
“We can understand that these athletes have a desire to heal quickly and they’re kind of willing to go to any extreme to make that possible,” Lauria said. “There’s a reason why we have these protocols set up. I can see why that happens, but it’s certainly outside the guidelines of what’s required.”
A sub-zero mistake that Brown won’t make twice.

Global Cryotherapy Market Growth READ HERE
"The cryotherapy market is projected to reach USD 318.8 million by 2024 from USD 206.3 million in 2019, at a CAGR 9.1%.
The rising incidence of sports injuries, cardiac conditions, and cancers are driving the growth of the market. Increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures, technological advancements in cryotherapy equipment, and the growing popularity in the beauty, wellness, and fitness industries are also supporting the growth of this market. However, the limited access to cryotherapy and lack of awareness about its benefits may restrain the market to a certain extent during the forecast period."

Ultrasonic Cavitation READ HERE
"Quite a popular thing nowadays is the Ultrasonic Cavitation machine – and for those of you who don’t know it is a device that uses ultrasound to invade the fatty cells and finally change the structure of the same. The explanation should be simple – the ultrasound creates bubbles around the fatty cell membrane that eventually explodes and release the free fatty acids that are then ejected out of the body by urinary or lymphatic system. And though it sounds too good to be true, there still might be some truth to it – so that is why we decided to go ahead and check it out..”

"Cryotherapy Might Be the Best Way to Recover from Joint Pain"
Check out the article on GQ about Cryotherapy here.
The other day while eavesdropping on a training session at the gym, I heard a statuesque trainer tell his client he recently started cryotherapy to help with his recovery. Since I was between sets—checking all of my social media pages and taking selfies—I took the time to Google this procedure. My knees had been bugging me recently, and I was desperate for any kind of relief.
The images that filled my screen showed people with their heads sticking out of machines resembling tanning beds except standing up and surrounded by fog. I came across testimonials from pro athletes like LeBron James and rave reviews from people with sculpted bodies who probably have never tasted Taco Bell’s nacho fries.
It turns out that one of the hottest fitness trends is making your body think you’re dying. That's how cold it gets in those chambers. Allegedly it's good for you.
In a nutshell, cryotherapy is a procedure that involves standing upright in a cryochamber with temperatures ranging from -184 F to -256 F. The extreme cold stimulates the skin’s temperate receptors to activate the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems. Basically, all the participating systems in your fight or flight response activate like Captain Planet characters. Any pain or inflammation is reduced. Your mood ring turns from a filthy brown to a sunny orange. And all of that happens in less than 3 minutes. Any longer and, well, you saw Titanic, right?
I needed to see if it was worth the hype Apparently one of the Real Housewives went there, and it’s a block from my apartment, so why not.
After being greeted by a friendly technician, hearing about their pro hockey player clients, and getting all of my safety questions answered—it’s very safe unless you’re pregnant, have unmanaged hypertension, deep vein thrombosis, acute or recent myocardial infarction, uncontrolled seizures, fever, Raynaud’s syndrome, cold allergy, acute kidney and urinary tract diseases, open wounds or ulcers, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or are being treated for cancer—I began my first of three treatments.
I stripped down to my boxer briefs, wiped away any moisture on my body to avoid frostbite, and put on the tube socks, mittens, earmuffs, face mask, and Ugg-like boots the center provided. Then I stepped into the cryochamber. It was kind of like walking into a very bright walk-in freezer…initially. For my first go-round, the technician took it easy on me and set the temperature to -215 F. And for three minutes he made small talk with me to take my mind of my body shaking uncontrollably. You know when Andre 3000 chants, “What’s cooler than being cool? Ice cold!” He should really update that last line to “Doing cryotherapy!”
I could feel my legs quaking, my stomach tightening, and my teeth chattering by the 2-minute mark. At the 3-minute mark, I was like “Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.”
As my body started to thaw, I felt alert, and alive, and aware. It was as if someone gave me an injection of sunshine, or maybe just a really good night's sleep. Apart from all these sensations, I was most interested in how my knees felt. I do a lot of spin classes and my knees have been sore and tight lately. I did a few squats as got dressed in the changing room to test them out, and my pins felt limber and pain-free. According to Kryo X’s website, after you exit the chamber, filtered blood flows back to the peripheral tissues. Now, cleaner and enriched with oxygen, nutrients and enzymes, the blood warms and enriches skin and muscles, and range of motion increases. As I walked home, there was so much pep in my step. I leaped over a puddle in the street and it was like bounding over all of the negative drama in the office where I work. That evening, I even held the elevator open for a stranger.
I didn’t recognize myself.
I went back two more times that week. Each time, the technician Peter made the temperature colder until we got down to -220 degrees Fahrenheit. Now a pro, I earned the privilege to benefit from the built-in speakers inside the chamber during my treatment. My trembling turned into twerking as Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé blared in the chamber while I was being blasted with cold air.
After each session, I found myself in a sunny mood (or with a “runner’s high”) and I felt my workouts improved—I cycled faster, lifted heavier, and focused on never checking Instagram even once during my workouts.

YAHOO LIFESTYLE ON CRYOTHERAPY
Think of cryotherapy as the more extreme version of an ice bath. It’s not a cure, but may help you manage and reduce pain. So, that begs the question: How often should someone go into a cryotherapy machine? McLaughlin made it clear that one-time usage wasn’t going to have a long-lasting effect:
Depending upon the condition being treated, it should initially take five to ten treatments in close succession, such as every other day, for the first two weeks. After this initial loading period, maintenance treatments should be at least once per week.
Initially, that sounds like a major commitment. It does make sense though. I use my ice pack multiple times a week and it’s the same theory. It would be nice if this could be a one-and-done thing, but managing pain is never straightforward.
