Last week, the Spa Week Social Media Team had the wonderful opportunity to visit CryoVigor.  If you’re unfamiliar with CryoVigor, it’s a Cryotherapy clinic in New York City.  My colleague and social media manager, Cynira, received her very first Cryotherapy treatment.  Keep in mind, this is a woman who despises the cold so much, she even has a mini heater below her desk (and turns it on in the middle of July).

A typical Cryotherapy chamber will get as cold as -263˚C (Now just picture Cynira’s face as she hears this).  However, Kathy Butters, owner of CryoVigor, tells us that Cynira will only have to withstand the ice chamber at a warm -163˚C…

To be honest, I didn’t know if she was going to make it for 3 minutes.  But we came here for one thing, and one thing only.  Cynira was going to prove to me (and to all of you) that she. Could. Do. It.

For 180 seconds, I watched Cynira’s hilarious facial expressions.  Although she didn’t say much (her way of dealing with the pain) I assumed this is what was going on during her head the whole time.  Oh, and guess what?

Surprise: Cynira came out of the chamber alive.

1. “You gotta be kidding me.” 


As previously mentioned, Cynira wasn’t the most chippy camper Friday morning.  Let’s just say it took a few days for her to finally agree to trying Cryotherapy.

2. “Okay, it’s cold, but I got this.” 


3. “Um no, I don’t got this.” 


4. “It’s been 90 seconds and I think my time has come to an end.”


At this point Cynira wasn’t really speaking and we were all genuinely concerned.

5. “Ok my butt is frozen and I can’t feel my thighs but do it for the fans, Cynira, do it for the fans!”

6. “Wait, I’m already done? I feel alive!”

After the 3 minutes are over, you’re instructed to use the stationary bike available to heat up. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cynira so happy before.

Do you think you want to try #Cryotherapy after seeing these GIFS?  We recommend you do, and if you’re in the NYC area, make note to book a session at CryoVigor!  We promise, you won’t regret it.
