CryoAZ balances bodies and promotes overall wellbeing with cryotherapy. The three-minute Cryosauna session encapsulates bodies within a pod-like casing before blasting them with a breath of chilly, nontoxic nitrogen. The short contact to fridge-like conditions jolts the immune system, which then sends out messages to each organ, instructing them to begin the process of healing. The brief session can benefit those ailing from joint pain, sports injuries, certain skin conditions, and meatloaf ears, raise metabolism enough to burn an additional 800 calories posttreatment, and increase smile-inducing endorphins. This treatment is not recommended for children younger than 12 years old, horses before big races, or anyone suffering from heart disease, seizures, Reynaud's syndrome, uncontrolled blood pressure, or acute infection.
