What’s cooler than being cool? Standing in a tank in your knickers because it’ll boost your metabolism.

Hi there! We're Jemima and Tahlia, and honestly all we want in life is to be Real Housewives.

Usually that just involves drinking wine and complaining about things. And that wine is often $5 swill, so honestly our bar is set pretty low.

But occasionally, we do enjoy some of the ~finer~ things in life. When we had the chance to try out cryotherapy, you best believe we took it.

But occasionally, we do enjoy some of the ~finer~ things in life. When we had the chance to try out cryotherapy, you best believe we took it.

Basically, cryotherapy uses extremely cold temperatures to help muscle recovery, boost metabolism, increase endorphins, and flush toxins out of the skin and muscles. It's generally used by athletes to treat and prevent injuries, though recently it's become popular in mainstream circles for weight loss and anti-ageing skin treatment. Also it's apparently a miracle-cure for jet lag and hangovers. That's probably what piqued our interest, tbh.

You step inside a tank-type thing, and are exposed to air that is about -150ºC for two to three minutes. This causes your body to increase blood flow to your organs, and flushes your red blood cells with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. Once your body warms up after the session, the enriched blood goes back to the muscles and skin, and basically cures you of everything.

The tank itself is very high-tech, and even has a platform that can be raised or lowered, in case you're a short-ass like Tahls.
