The cryosauna—invented in Japan in 1978—exposes bare skin to temperatures below -100 degrees Celsius for periods of three minutes. The sudden shock of cold cools off the body up to a millimetre below the surface, causing it to go into survival mode. Blood leaves the extremities and the surface of the body to warm internal organs, picking up oxygen and nutrients along the journey. When the skin warms again after the three-minute period, the enriched blood returns to the body's surface, bringing its payload of health to muscles and skin.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Millennium Ice Canada
For years, athletes have used ice packs and baths to accentuate their works outs and aid in rapid injury recovery. Millennium Ice Canada's cryosaunas simply take the water out of that process. The standing-only, totally dry rooms use chilled nitrogen to bombard the body with temperatures below -100 degrees Celsius, stimulating the body's natural healing responses and altering blood flow to carry more nutrients. This technique, used by sports teams such as the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Cowboys, reportedly aids with injury prevention, increases flexibility, and improves age-related skin conditions.
