Cryotherapy salon employee freezes herself to death
This is why women and science don't mix well.

HENDERSON, Nev. — Chelsea Ake-Salvacion felt she was on health care’s cutting edge, working at a cryotherapy center in this Las Vegas suburb that promised to help clients burn calories, reduce pain, strengthen immune systems and halt aging by embedding them in freezing tanks for a few minutes at a time.

In her off hours, she engaged in the practice, and dreamed of opening her own cryotherapy center once she had learned the ropes.

But last week, Ms. Ake-Salvacion, 24, was found dead in one of the tanks, discovered by her colleague and friend Elise Iverson. After working an evening shift on Oct. 19 at the Rejuvenice spa here, which offers two forms of deep-freeze therapy, in tanks that can reach temperatures of minus 240 degrees Fahrenheit, she had stayed to give herself a cryotherapy session. She was found the next day.

A local coroner’s office said the cause of death had not yet been determined. But Ms. Ake-Salvacion’s uncle said the coroner had told him his niece’s body was found “rock-hard solid.”

“Something went wrong,” said the uncle, Albert Ake, 48. “What she told me is that there is nothing dangerous about doing this. That the only thing that could happen is you’re there a little too long and you get frost nip on your fingers.”

Ms. Ake-Salvacion was a Hawaiian who had moved to Las Vegas in recent years with her boyfriend. When her boyfriend returned to Hawaii, Ms Ake-Salvacion stayed in Nevada, eager to excel at her new job as a manager at the spa, said Mr. Ake, her uncle. “She loved that work,” he said.

On Monday, Oct. 19, Ms. Ake-Salvacion was working a closing shift. About 7:30 p.m. she sent a text message to her boyfriend, telling him that her body was aching and that she was going to hop in one of the tanks for a bit. “That was the last she texted him,” said Mr. Ake. The coroner’s office told Mr. Ake that his niece died just minutes after getting into the chamber.

Ms. Ake-Salvacion used to work out at a gym across the street from Rejuvenice, Ms. Cap said. “She was working out a lot,” Ms. Cap said. “She would post her workouts on Instagram.”

Cryotherapy is billed as being excellent for muscle pain. “She must have been really sore,” Ms. Cap said. “I don’t know why she would go in there alone. We don’t do that.” One reason people do not try it solo, Ms. Cap said, is that the nitrogen gas used to chill the air can be debilitating

I bet they tell clients the same thing, there is nothing dangerous about getting into tanks which can go down to -240F Dodgy

Just like women used to say tanning beds were safe because it's not real sunlight, until they found out it caused skin cancer.

I wonder though, would it be possible to thaw her out in the future with future tech?
