Cryotherapy?? Wut?
So this young woman was found frozen to death in a "Cryosuana". Quick frozen, I guess. What is this supposed to do for a person....well besides freeze the person to death if they aren't careful?

They also do "cryofacials" because it " because it helps seal everything in...." Stupidity sells, apparently.

Poor girl, she was so young and pretty but according to experts she didn't suffer which makes me think that it would be a good way to end your life if you were so inclined.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I'm so dumb. I didn't know these places even existed. They're supposed to be therapeutic. How? Why not just take a cold bath or splash some ice water on your face.

As far as I could discover with a quick google search, there's nothing about cryotherapy that's therapeutical but people believe it's good for their health. The "spas" print brochures claiming all kinds of great things will take place in a cryotherapy tank. Wow.

I'd never heard of it either until this happened.

Science Based Medicine Article on Whole Body Cryotherapy

tl;dr summary: Plausible, but unproven + quack Miranda warning + stereotypical, over-hyped, b.s. alternative medicine claims = not worth the risk.

"any medical use of cold or any basic science showing that cold temperatures have some physiological effect on the body are wildly extrapolated into claims that cooling the entire body with extreme temperatures has some overall health benefit."

Good find. I read the whole article and comment section. Haha. This one commentor said .....

"when I read the line about, "spending 1.5-3 minutes in a chamber of dry air cooled to -200 to -240 degrees F," my testicles snapped up into my abdomen and likely won't descend until April of May."


Yes, for a guy the penis has to be sort of shocked, like "what the hell's going on here?" Wonder what happens to the sperm.

I remember having wet hair and going out in a Nova Scotia winter. Cryotherapy... Think I'll pass.

A fool and his money are soon parted......

A fool who answers goofy internet advertising for pecker pills, get rich quick schemes, getting bigger muscles without exercise, or anything that claims to remove age spots or wrinkles - will be parted with their money so fast that there's a real danger of the air friction causing things to burst into flames......

.......................................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
