What's cooler than bein' cool? (Ice cold!) - Cryo T-shock

As I sit in the in my room wearing my pj’s tucked into my socks and my fluffy wardrobe I’m reminiscing on the warmer weather I experienced in April.


Someone please take me back to the desert in Palm Springs for Coachella! My vacation seems so long ago. I don’t even mind that I was frantically running around like a mad woman the week before. So much prep went into it from getting the perfect festival outfit to getting my hair and nails did to experimenting with a secret weapon to give my body a boost.

While I love training I wanted to see if there was anything else I could do (and no starving wasn’t an option for me, I love food and would rather promote a healthy lifestyle too) so I looked into Cryo T-Shock treatments at the Wellness and Empowerment collective.

Measurements and pics are take so that we can see results
The notion of freezing fat wasn’t something that was on my radar until now. Ebony the owner of the Wellness and Empowerment collective is always on the hunt for a new technology. Cryo T-Shock isn’t widely available in Australia. The Wellness and Empowerment collective is one of four clinics in Australia to have it! It’s the closest thing you can get to spot targeting for fats.

After chatting with Ebony, we decide to pick my waist for a targeted treatment (forever chasing that hour glass figure).

How does it work?
Cryoslimming uses thermoelectric cooling to freeze fat, causing the cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the overlying skin. The treatment alternates heat at 40C, followed by cold at -8C divided evenly across the treated areas. The destroyed cells then pass naturally through your body’s lymphatic system. This sounds pretty cool hey.

What does it feel like?
This was a bizarre feeling! The apparatus rubs over your skin and goes from warm to super cold. I was giggling during the treatment because it was just odd. It was almost like there was ice blocks running over my skin. Yeah I’d say it’s like a weird ice block massage. Post treatment my skin was a bit red but that was purely from the cold.

Post treatment measurements
Prior to the treatment Ebony marked me up so that we could do measurements. I was pretty surprised to find out that I lost 2 cm from my waist from literally just lying down. If only sitting on the couch could do the same ;)

How to boost the treatment?
For the best results post treatment it’s recommended that you drink heaps of water, continue to eat well and exercise and if possible get a lymphatic drainage massage to help flush it from your system. I went to America straight after my treatment so my diet wasn't exactly optimal. But I maintained my exercise with walking, a few runs and a gym session or two.

I lost 2 cm from my waist. 
While you pretty much see instant results, they actually peak at the 2-3 week mark post treatment. As with anything too, ideally you would get more than one treatment to experience the full effect. I think this treatment is great if you need to help boost your already healthy regime. As I am a highly visual person seeing results kick in post treatment helps motivate me to continue persevering and sticking to my health kick. With a combination of a healthy lifestyle this can definitely help you achieve the best version of you (what ever that may be).

Given it can do this to your body I'm also super curious to check out the cyrofacelift as a non invasive way of toning my face and laugh lines. It's a great idea for those who are against botox.

*Shout out to Ebony as well for making me super comfortable while getting my treatment. I get a bit shy when I'm in swimmers.
