The Big Chill
Cryotherapy is a relatively new health craze for the relief of muscle and joint pain. It’s similar to an ice bath except that participants are treated to a 2–3 minute blast of supercooled air inside a cylindrical chamber. (The head stays out.)
While the supposed health benefits are questionable, the practice came under new scrutiny after a freak accident which occurred around Halloween 2015. Chelsea Ake-Salvacion, 24, worked at the Las Vegas spa where the incident took place and decided to do a quick treatment after hours—and alone.
Although the details are unclear, it appears that she lost consciousness and was found dead—frozen completely solid—by her coworkers the next day. According to the county coroner, Chelsea died from asphyxia due to low levels of oxygen.
If it's all the same to you, I'd rather just take a couple of aspirin and lie down for a bit. Besides, I don't care for the cold!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Temps are supposed to reach the high 60s and Sun is shining!
