Marius also shared photos of their time at London's Quick Recovery Unit, revealing that he too had stripped down to just his underwear to step inside the chamber, that plummets to temperatures as low as -100°C. 

Cryotherapy is a therapeutic treatment which is used to manage pain, stimulate the immune system and encourage weight loss. 
The treatment also has numerous health benefits, including, but not limited to, preventing anxiety, depression, insomnia, skin problems, muscle strain, back pain and cardiovascular disease.
