You might think the fastest way to burn the amount of calories contained in the average dinner is to simply set it on fire before it leaves the stove. But actually the process involves much less heat than that.
Popular with celebrities including the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Cryotherapy is as easy as 1-2-3 minutes.
The process involves wearing nothing but socks and protective hand mitts while standing inside an octagon-shaped chamber. Your head stays outside of the open-top box while cold air is blasted onto the skin.
According to the people at CRYO, it can triple your metabolic rate and burn up to 800 calories with each three-minute session (from AED425). At extremely low temperatures (-120 to -160 degrees Celsius) it's a great option to help the body get over weight loss plateaus, and help with headaches, fatigue, muscle pain and recovery.
So how does it work? The freezing temperature causes vasoconstriction, allowing red blood cells to be enriched with oxygen, nutrients and enzymes, while toxins are flushed away. You can even get a 5-minute facial version.
