Would Taking an Ice Bath be The Same as Cryotherapy?

It is simply not possible to achieve the same effect without a nitrogen based solution. For a cryo effect to take place, the skin’s surface needs to drop to 10°C in a span of 30-60 seconds, which is impossible to reach using ice based therapies. Any attempts at achieving similar results would be long and far from painless; while 2-3 minutes of concentrated nitrogen cooling will yield ideal results with minimal recovery time.
