I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.
This means I get very painful migraines, brain fog, extreme tiredness etc. Needless to say, this also leaves me feeling quite depressed. There is no cure for Fibro and I am often told by doctors the only solution is to take anti-depressants.
That didn’t seem like a long-term solution to me.
With no cure available I have to use pain management techniques to get through the day. I did some research online and found that many people in America are using Cryotherapy to treat the symptoms of Fibro. I wasn’t sure this kind of treatment was going to be available in Wales but I was surprised to find there was a Cryotherapy centre in Bridgend!
The first time going into the chamber was unforgettable, it’s a full-body Cryotherapy so you enter a chamber and when that door closes behind you the cold hits straight away. After what felt like the longest four minutes of my life, I emerged feeling like I was born again! The best way I can describe a Cryotherapy session is like hitting reset on your whole body.
The rest of the day I was in a euphoric mood and my usual aches and pains were a shadow of their former selves. Was I cured? No. Did it help me? MASSIVELY!
I started off going once a week but now I go 2-3 times a week, CryoCube has become a permanent part of my self-care routine.
I feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life.
P.S. Shout out to Ben for his iconic 3.2.1! as you leave the chamber.
