As we’re coming to the end of our March Madness Workout & Studio Tour (don’t worry babes we will be back with more in April), we’re moving into recovery, an important and vital part of any wellness journey! Have you heard about the hottest (or should we say coolest :p) way to recover faster, reduce pain, inflammation and stress all while improving your energy & quality of sleep? Yes, babes, there is a way! We are talking about taking the deep freeze with US Cryotherapy, and are excited to fill you in!! ☃️
Located in the sizzlin’ valley, right in Studio City, we are getting ready to cool things down a bit!! US Cryotherapy breaks the mold from your standard body tank only Cryo, and provides a whole body (yes, babes, we said that correct- whole body- head, neck & face) experience !! We’ve both experienced the standard body tanks before, but we love this fully immersive Cryo chamber even more because it just feels better to include everything, not to mention the major skin benefits your face receives simultaneously (more on that later ;) ) If you’re new to Cryo, you may feel a bit nervous, and that’s totally understandable, but don’t be!! The team at US Cryotherapy is amazing, and they will walk you through every step of the process & fill you in on what you’re about to experience; they are so warm & helpful !!
US Cryotherapy provides everything you need socks, rubber shoes, a bathrobe, a face mask, ear warmers & gloves. They even have cute inspiring changing rooms! Each dressing room represents one letter of C-H-A-N-G-E. There are so many insta worthy spots here, deff take advantage!! Once you’ve changed it’s time to select your music, 🎶 the song that’s going to play and motivate you during your chamber experience, so it’s important to choose a good one!! You’ll also want to pick one that’s about 3 minutes in length so you aren’t left chilling (literally) without your jam!
Now it’s time to brave the subzero temperatures as you begin your Cryo experience. Once inside the Cryo chamber, you have a hook to hang your bathrobe. Everything else stays on. It’s up to you whether you want to keep on your bra/underwear; however, if your bra has underwire we do recommend going without it in the chamber. Any metal will become very, very cold. We went in with just our undies AND yes the chamber is big enough for two, if you need a friend for support!
We danced to Kanye, our new go-to music for powering through the three minute challenge🎵👯♀️💪🏼 It gets cold- like dry ice on your eyelashes cold- but don’t worry if you have eyelash extensions or hair extensions, they won’t be wet after. We loved that our icy chamber not only pumped out our favorite dance music loudly but also gave us a heads up with a countdown to the finish line.
As touched on previously, Cryo is great for sore muscles and recovery. If you happen to be dealing with an isolated area that needs more attention (for example Sarah get’s sciatica pain & inflammation) US Cryotherapy also offers local Cryo treatments which instantly hit those target spots, and Cryo Facials, yes babes Cryo Facials❣️
Cryo facials are all the rage right now and perfect before a big event, if you’re going in for new headshots, or have a big date that you want your skin to glow for. We were obsessed with how youthful and fresh our faces looked after the coolest facial in town 💓 Cryo benefits don’t stop there!! Cryo can help with acne, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Cryo also helps increase the production of collagen which means bye bye 👋 to those fine lines and wrinkles. We also loved how the puffiness around our eyes quickly diminished! Going deeper, Cryo can also help benefit and assist with many internal functions such as reducing migraines, increasing endorphin levels as well as your metabolic rate which is perfect to help give you energy & a natural high while simultaneously slimming down 🙌🏼. We love that Cryotherapy has zero downtime and does not involve any chemicals or creams. This is a safe, natural way to increase energy and help you stay looking your youthful best !!
After you finish your Cryo, the best way to finish up your muscle recovery is in the NormaTec Compression. We loved the compression sleeves for our legs & they also offer sleeves for your back, and hips depending on what area you need worked on the most. The deep compression massage starts with your feet and moves upwards using zone by zone patterns. The NormatTec uses pulsing, gradients and distal release to maximize your recovery. Your muscles and overall well being will thank you.
Stay tuned babes for our next blog post with US Cryotherapy as we HEAT 🔥 things up!! LoveLustTips: 1. Wear or bring comfortable underwear, wire free sports bra & or bathing suit 👙 (you can go in just your undies if you forget or want to) 2. Select a song that’s at least 3 minutes long so you’re not left chilling (literally) without music ! 3. While in the chamber it helps to think about warm beach vacations 😅 4. Bring warm relaxing clothes for after your treatments ❄️ 5. Have fun!
