An employee of a Nevada cryotherapy business froze to death in one of their freezing chambers, according to the Huffington Post. Another employee of Rejuvenice discovered 24-year-old manager, Chelsea Ake, after being locked inside a freezing chamber for up to 10 hours. The company’s website claims that none of their machines lock, allowing users to shut it off instantly as needed. The cryotherapy chambers are used to treat a variety of conditions, including stress, muscle and joint pain, and for beauty treatments. Ake’s autopsy should be available in several weeks, but because the company was not licensed to perform cosmetic procedures, it has been ordered to shut down all of its locations. This obviously isn’t very good for business and such companies should not be allowed to operate. No company should perform these kinds of procedures if they’re not licensed, and although the initial costs when starting a cryotherapy franchise aren’t as much as one may think, no business owner should ever carry out such treatments/procedures if they don’t meet the standards or are not licensed to do so.
