NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly felt nearly frozen for three minutes as they gave cryotherapy a try. Each entered separate chambers at KyroLife in Manhattan where the temperature was set to -256 Fahrenheit. The ice therapy is all the rage among celebrities and professional athletes.
Users claim it improves skin tone, fights the signs of aging and much more.
"It was designed as anti-inflammatory and pain relief modality by Dr.Toshima Yamauchi in Japan and then it moved to Europe. With time doctors discovered it helps with anxiety and depression," said KryoLife CEO Joanna Fryben.
Temperatures range from -184 F to -264F. The maximum time allowed in the chamber is three minutes, minimum 1.5 minutes.
"You don't have to do the whole thing to get the stimulation of the nervous, endocrine and the immune systems," said Fryben.
