Icebox Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy sessions are  beneficial for athletic recovery, pain management and beauty and wellness, according to the company’s website. Whole body cryotherapy was originally designed as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory joint diseases.

What is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a modern take on the traditional ice bath and involves exposing the body for three minutes to ultra-low temperatures, ranging from -200F to -256F. Whole body cryotherapy reduces chronic inflammation, improves circulation, relieves pain, and promotes overall better health and wellness.

What else is new

Savory Spice is open in its new location, around the corner from where it was and now next to Icebox Cryotherapy.

Construction is underway at the new location for Brixx, which is moving to where Qdoba was.

Foxcroft Wine Co., The Good Wurst Co. and Warby Parker are still to come.

Worst kept secret

Construction is also gearing up at the old Gap location, where Cheesecake Factory has applied for a building permit.

Neither Cheesecake Factory nor the owner of Birkdale Village has confirmed a lease.

Meanwhile, you can get a taste of Cheesecake Factory delicacies at the cafe in Barnes & Noble.
