A Henderson, NV woman is dead tonight after apparently using a cryotherapy chamber at her place of employment, Rejuvenice. Since Chelsea Ake-Salvacion, dead at 24, was operating the machine on her own personal recognizance and was not using the cryotherapy device for work purposes, OSHA will not conduct an investigation. Cryotherapy is not FDA regulated. No clinical study has studied risks or benefits to cryotherapy, in which liquid nitrogen around -200 degrees Farenheit envelops the body or face of the customer and is purported to have positive health and beauty outcomes. Chelsea Ake-Salvacion is the first known death related to cryotherapy treatment.
Autopsy and toxicology reports are expected to provide the precise cause of death within six to eight weeks.
