So apparently cryotherapy is a new thing: The whole story sounds like nothing but pure quackery, “The shocklike extreme cold stimulus, and the severe reduction in skin surface temperature over minutes, brings about a cryogenic influencing of the functions of neural structures as well as induction of neuroreflexive process that exert effects on various regulatory pathways,” explains the spa’s manual and high-tech therapy manager, Christophe Fautrier. Personally, I'd be curious to try just for the experience of being in a -166 degree chamber, irrespective of the supposed health benefits. I wonder how many people have actually tried it for that reason alone. Focus: Would you ever try this? Have you had any experiences with alternative medicine, and if so what were the results?
