BLUFIT RECOVERY & NUTRITION Recently opened on Tuttle Avenue near Bee Ridge Road, forward-thinking specialists at BluFit Recovery are focused on fitness recovery, wellness, antiaging treatments and relief

from chronic pain. But perhaps the most notable treatment on BluFit’s list is cryotherapy. This overarching process is said to stimulate metabolism, flush toxins, increase collagen and improve circulation, effectively speeding up the body’s healing process and leaving clients feeling revitalized. According to BluFit, the procedure, which involves exposing the skin to ultra-sub-zero temperatures (-170˚F to -280˚F) for up to 3 minutes, triggers the body’s natural healing process as well as the production of collagen in the skin’s deep layers, leading to a more youthful appearance and alleviation of sports injuries and chronic pain, as well as improvement of skin conditions like dermatitis and psoriasis. BluFit also offers services involving infrared and compression therapies as well as pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, all of which are said to mitigate a host of conditions. 3529 S.
