This past Monday (July 27th), Cryotherapy officially became available in Memphis for the general public’s use. The Cryotherapy Chamber designed Flow Cryotherapy is said increase your stamina and metabolism. It accomplishes the feat by tricking your body to think its freezing. Burning up to 800 calories in the process. Clients are put into temperatures well below -200 degrees Fahrenheit for a couple of minutes for the desired effect.
Cryotherapy will no doubt eventually become a part of every professional athletes routine. It could extend players careers way beyond previous expiration dates. Just look at the Phoenix Suns’ success with it applying it to Grant Hill, Steve Nash and a host of other players just a few years ago. Their medical staff has long been deemed one of the best in the league. It is very likely Cryotherapy is the Ace card in Phoenix’s deck. One that has long term benefits in maintaining players’ health over the regular season.
Incredible applications of Cryotherapy include:
“-Improved post-surgery recovery- up to 40% reduction in recovery time.
– Reduced inflammation, swelling and pain.

Amazingly, the future of healthcare arrives at a relatively affordable price. First timer users only have to pay $20 dollars!
