Chelsea Ake-Salvacion, a 24-year-old girl froze to death in a cryotherapy chamber at spa she worked at in Las Vegas.
Cryotherapy, a cutting edge health-care technology, in use of low temperatures in medical therapy, has garnered support from star athletes and celebrities.
According to Media in the US employees at Rejuvenice made the tragic discovery earlier this week. The dead girl was the manager of the business.
The police report informs that Ake used the machine without any assistance and may have suffocated. Investigators ruled “operator error” and authorities with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that they believe Ake was in the chamber for at least 10 hours.
The therapy promises clients numerous health benefits such as burn calories, strengthen the immune system and halt the ageing process by embedding clients in freezing tanks for a few minutes, while they are wearing little more than a swimsuit. Temperatures in the chamber can be as low as minus 150 degrees Celsius.
