Weight Loss for Lazy People
I'm not going to lie, I would rather spent a day in bed watching a series on Netflix than going to the gym but it's not the dislike of going (I love the endorphins), but the fact that I don't get instant results. So when I was invited to try Cryotherapy, I was skeptical but wasn't about to say no to a non-invasive treatment that could potentially cause me to shed inches off my waist.
Cryotherapy is a treatment that causes you to burn through fat incredibly quickly by liquid nitrogen being sprayed over your target area. Because your body then goes into shock mode, it burns through fat trying to maintain it's optimum body temperature. Now this might not be the most technical explanation but I thought I'd break it down and try and give explain it in "laymans" terms, aka something I understand!
The therapist I had was called Jordanne and she was lovely, she explained the process and then measured me up before the treatment and took a couple of before shots (which will never make the internet), so we had something to compare with. The treatment lasts an hour and it's the weirdest sensation - it feels like when you open the freezer door, but onto bare skin.
The results were brilliant, I lost a couple of inches off my waist and four inches off my hips and a couple of stretch marks I had were visibly improved, as well as a reduced redness in some of my scars that I had from surgeries in the past.
I'm not sure if the results will be permanent and it's a bit odd to lose weight whilst lying on a bed and not moving a muscle so I'd say it's great for shifting that lil bit of weight that you just can't get rid of as it is quite expensive. But I really enjoyed it and am pleased with the results!
