Welcome back to TMMT Episode 17! You’ll find us live on our Facebook Page every Tuesday featuring the fitness, health and wellness products we love so much that we just want to say, TAKE MY MONEY. We’ll show off everything from healthy food products (and sometimes our favorite splurge items too) to the best fitness gear, self-care products and more—basically anything you could ever want to create the best and most balanced lifestyle. Be sure to tune in weekly to discover your soon-to-be new favorite things!
This month we’re focused on Self-Love. We believe self-love starts with self-reflection, knowing your needs, knowing your body and what makes you feel stronger, healthier and balanced. For us, we know that recovery is just as important as exercising itself. From cryotherapy and spa massages, to rolling out and stretching – we make time for it! Today, we’re taking you inside Cryo1one, one of our Perk Partner studios to learn more about cryotherapy.
While standing in the nitrogen-cooled CryoSauna for three minutes, we were exposed to temperatures that varied from -167 F to -202 F (alarming?! We think so too but believe us, it’s doable!). Kelly, the owner of Cryo1one, informed us that a three minute cryo sesh is equivalent to a 15 minute ice bath. No way could you catch us ice bathing for 15 MINUTES so we opted for the express route to help our sore muscles. Other information Kelly shared with us about the process: “During the session, the outside skin’s temperature lowers, stimulated receptors activate a central nervous system response (fight or flight) and vasoconstriction occurs. The blood rushes to the core to protect vital organs. Once the session ends, the body immediately starts the rewarming process, vasodilation begins, supplying the body and extremities with newly oxygenated blood.” She also mentioned cryotherapy most popularly treats symptoms such as tissue damage (it’s excellent for athletes), decrease inflammation, increase cell rejuvenation, improve skin tone and reduce signs of aging. If you’re a StudioHopper in Dallas, be sure to take advantage of the awesome perk you get at Cryo1one and other cryotherapy studios around the city. Stay tuned for next week’s #TakeMyMoneyTuesday. Thanks for watching!
