Raw, organic, cold-pressed juice certainly isn't new or revolutionary in the realm of health fads. The practice of raw juicing, which involves use of a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruits and vegetables, has proven merits but, seeing as it's been around for decades, the thrill's worn off. But at Renew Juicery Wellness Center, the mojo's been jump-started by a Whole Body Cryotherapy regimen courtesy of a state-of-the-art Cryosauna. The cylindrical sauna is entered standing up, with only the head free of the pod. The treatment lasts between two and three minutes, as the chamber fills with liquid nitrogen reaching temperatures nearing minus-250 Fahrenheit, causing blood to circulate to the center of the body. Originally conceived of in the 1970s as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, cryotherapy claims to offer results such as reduced inflammation, increased energy, decreased injury-recovery time, boosted metabolism, improvement of migraines, tightening of the skin and the burning of 500 to 800 calories in mere minutes. After just three months in the biz, Renew Juicery's devoted and steadily growing client base includes celebrities and professional athletes, from surfers to bodybuilders to UFC fighters. Why let them keep this futuristic manna from heaven all to themselves?
