Brave! Thank you for sharing, anart.
Well, my blood pressure was really high when I got there because I was just plain scared! Having no idea what I was walking into and imagining that I'd walk out with fewer toes, can do that to a person. But - it's not as scary as it sounds.
Do you remember how cold it was?
They got the skin surface air temperature down to -110C within the first 45 seconds. I said, "whoa, it's cold!" and the operator just laughed - I suppose stating the obvious is kind of silly! It WAS cold!
Also, can you do the treatments every day, or do you need some processing period in between?
They actually recommend doing them every day for better results, but I can't arrange it - though I'm doing two a day next week. Doing two a day is okay if you space them out throughout the day. (as I say that, I'm thinking that you might want to ask me again next week whether it's a good idea!)
I am too fascinated with all the info about the Cryogenic Chamber treatments, but I used to have hypothyroidism, though my last years lab results came out showing no thyroid problem at all. I'll have more tests I guess, before I venture out in the cold... bbbrrrrrrr....
LOL - I read some articles where people said it didn't 'feel cold' - they lied - or I was in a different type of chamber than they were. It was cold - period.
We found this place in Vernon, British Columbia that does the treatments
As you see from the link, the temperature is -110 C and it's a big room, with an assistant with you throughout. It costs 300 Canadian dollars for 10 treatments. Although people might want to look for another hotel in the area if on a budget, this one (where the treatments take place) is expensive! (well, from my perspective... )
That is actually quite cheap. The going rate in the States is $90 per treatment, so that would be $900 for ten treatments (though, actually, I think you can buy a package that brings that down to around $500). That links says that you wear light clothing in the chamber - that is not the case at the center I'm attending - other than socks and gloves, your bare skin is fully exposed to the nitrogen. The place I went is having a grand opening special so I'm getting them for just under $60 a treatment, but I'm only planning on getting 5 at this point.
