WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?

Cryotherapy, similarly, termed “cold therapy” is a biohacking technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes, exposing it to -85 degrees. Either delivered to just one area, the whole body or as a facial, Cryotherapy immerses the body in extremely cold air resulting in a wealth of mental and physical benefits.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRYOTHERAPY?

PAIN RELIEF & MUSCLE HEALING

Traditionally used to support athlete’s training and even injuries, Cryotherapy helps with muscle pain and promotes a faster healing for many injuries. By increasing blood circulation, the treatment targets the affected area, numbing any nerve pain and enhancing pain relief and promoting healing.

REDUCE INFLAMMATION

Benefiting in two ways, Cryotherapy boosts your body’s production of anti-inflammatory hormones which significantly reduces inflammation in the body. This reduction in inflammation helps the body to heal and recover faster as well as reduce future pain in problematic areas. In addition, the low physical stress on the body helps to keeps the cells active and brings about an increased response that then strengthens your immune system for improved health overall.

REDUCE ANXIETY & DEPRESSION

The freezing temperatures in whole-body cryotherapy can have an impact on the physiological hormone responses, increasing the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins. Cumulatively this will have a positive effect on the mind by boosting the mood, reducing levels of anxiety and depression.

BOOSTS ENERGY

By triggering your body’s production of endorphins, cryotherapy can help to boost your focus and energy levels as well as improving your sleep pattern. This is down to the role of anti-inflammatory hormones in neurogenesis.

BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION

Collagen isn’t just vital to our skin but our bodies too, it helps to heal our bodies as well as main our cartilage within our joints. After a full-body cryotherapy treatment, collagen will increase in its production as collagenase (the enzyme that breaks collagen down at a faster rate) slows down after the session.

WEIGHT LOSS

Although Cryotherapy alone doesn’t cause weight loss, incorporated into a healthy and balanced lifestyle will support the process. By exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures, it is forcing the body to boost its metabolism, forcing the body to work harder to stay warm. In another format as cryotherapy improves muscle pain, it will make it easier for those who suffer with any pain when working out to achieve an active fitness routine without resulting in injury as easily.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
