Zac Efron knows how to make cryotherapy fun! Rockin’ a great new look and headed into an ‘impromptu’ dance session in a cryotherapy chamber, Efron does it for his greater good- a better way to healing and recovery. Many Hollywood celebrities are climbing into the cold for rejuvenation, healing from work stress and sports injuries, and to always be looking runway ready.
Earlier this year, Zac sustained an ACL tear injury while he was tearing up the ski slopes, and opted for surgery to correct the major tear and get him on his feet quickly. With post-op recovery physical therapy, he also chose cryotherapy as a way to expedite his healing. Understanding the benefits of cryotherapy for inflammation and injury, Efron delved into the treatments to utilize a more natural way to get him back into shape.
With a group of friends, Efron decided to do his whole body cryotherapy recovery session while dancing with them in the cold, to ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by 90s rapper Vanilla Ice.  An appropriate way to endure the few minutes of -200 degree temperatures for sure! Efron understands the many benefits of using cryotherapy in his recovery. From muscle inflammation reduction, pain relief and the benefits of nutrients and oxygenated blood that rushes to the extremities after a session; cryotherapy offered a natural and healthy way for Efron to improve after his ACL surgery.
On his Instagram account he shows how he utilized the cryotherapy along with exercise and training to recover and get back his strength. Cryotherapy is a major bonus in wellness and for dealing with pain and inflammation as well as helping to remove post-op toxins from the body. It increases endorphins after a session and can help some people find more restful sleep. Efron says, “Better every day. Taking it literally, 1 step at a time…”
Recovery with whole body cryotherapy is becoming a popular choice for athletes, celebrities and the rest of the public seeking wellness and healing through natural body processes. Lifestyles are changing when it comes to looking and feeling good, and natural ways to treat healing and stay on top of one’s health and fitness are a trend that continues to grow the interests in technologically advanced treatments like cryotherapy.
