Guilty. As a working mom of two small children, I am an expert at putting my needs last. Seriously, I can find every excuse in the book. So, when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder a couple years ago that zapped all of my remaining energy, there was literally no motivation to actively put my needs first. I was barely making it through the constant demands of my day.
By chance, I happened upon an article about the benefits of cryotherapy. I admit, I was skeptical. As someone with limited time, even more limited energy, and a strong dislike for bitter cold temperatures, I was pretty sure that this was NOT an option for me. However, my widespread inflammation was so debilitating that I was willing to try anything once. Just once, I told myself--certain that it wouldn't make me feel better. Well, I was wrong.
After the first session, I left feeling AMAZING. My mood was elevated, I slept much better, and, the next morning, I was able to easily slide on my wedding ring without the usual swelling and discomfort. What?!? Just one session radically changed my mind!! And, after committing to regular sessions, I found that these benefits not only persisted, but they became more profound. I haven't felt this good in over 2 years. My swelling, internal inflammation, and fatigue are all drastically improved and are even completely alleviated on most days.
There is absolutely no reason to not try this just once (hello, Happy Hour Wednesday deals!!!!). The staff is incredible, professional, and knowledgeable. And, I promise you, the icy cold temperatures are unbelievably worth it!!
