“Cryo Haus is the only walk-in, all-enclosed chamber in Orange County that’s cooled (to as low as -202 degrees at Cryo Haus) by nitrogen,” says Danielle Logan, owner of Cryo Haus. “It’s the safest machine out there because it’s 100% breathable air, and you get a lot more benefits with the all-enclosed.” Logan explains that this machine is unique in that it equally distributes the temperature, maximizing the benefits by including the neck, face and head.
Native Knowledge: Cryo Haus is a boutique cryo spa that offers luxe plush mittens, slippers and ear muffs.
According to Logan, “Spending just three minutes in the cryo chamber can burn up to 800 calories.” That’s about the equivalent of calories burned in a rigorous, one-hour boot camp-style fitness class. When exposed to extremely low temperatures for just three minutes, the skin’s temperature drops to about 50 degrees, while the temperature of the body’s core stays the same. “Your body is doing so much work to build heat. Even after, it’s still working and speeding up your metabolism,” she says.
