Chill Out with Cyrotherapy
Those who swear by the treatment — which involves entering a chamber full of air chilled to -160 to -300 degrees — credit it with burning calories, reducing inflammation and easing muscle pain, though there is limited research to support these claims. At the very least, it's invigorating!

We tried Skinade for 30 days, a drinkable collagen sourced from fresh-water fish.
Our tester, Bodies editor Sheila Baylis noticed a positive difference in skin texture and brightness. It's only 35 calories with 2g of sugar per bottle.
The only downside is the cost, with the 30 day kit costing around $150. However, it's not too far-out when you consider the cost of an anti-aging regimen of skin creams and treatments.

Rinse, Steam, Soak, Sauna, Repeat.
Licenced massage therapist Liz Tortolani, who owns the boutique bathhouse cityWell in Brooklyn, New York, recommends a regular steaming and soaking ritual for optimum health.
Soaking "decreases pain, helps with muscle ailments, is good for the joints, helps with headaches and detoxes the body," Tortolani tells PEOPLE.
She credits architect Deborah Mariotti with creating the serene feel of the bathhouse, pictured here, and says, "I wanted to bring back the ancient tradition of communal bathing and taking care of oneself."
Tortolani encourages the following circuit for maximum benefit:
Take a temperate shower, then steam five to seven minutes to open the pores, then take a cool shower for a few minutes, then hop into the whirlpool, then take another cool shower, then relax in the sauna and drink some water. Finish with the coolest shower you can handle.

Heal from the Inside Out with Intuitive Energy Healing
Maggie Carraher of Soul to Soul practices energy healing, which she says "is like going to the root of our problems and healing our lives from the inside out."
"I can see the way energy moves through the body," she says. Carraher then uses visualization and meditative techiques to work with energy blockages and undesirable patterns. She explains that "Everything is energy and all of our physical manifestations have an energetic foundation. Trying to change your life by influencing external circumstances can take a lot of effort and is often ineffective. The best way to change what is showing up is to change what the magnet inside is attracting."
The intuitive healer says she can perform her services remotely or in person, and "those who would benefit most from energy healing techniques are people who are feeling anxious, depressed, consistently drained, or who continue to attract the same problematic situations over and over."

Try a Visceral Manipulation Massage
Unlike traditional Swedish massage that focuses on relieving muscle tension, visceral manipulation massage works to correct structural and functional imbalances in the body.
Created by French osteopath and physical therapist Jean-Pierre Barral, the approach considers the relationship among different systems in the body, but tends to focus on the organs in the torso that may hold tension.
Sometimes called an "organ massage," the practitioner may work on the liver, kidneys or small intestine using light to medium pressure.
"It takes practice in learning how to listen to [the body]," massage therapist Ramesh Narine tells PEOPLE.
"Our goal is just to wake a little something up. And everything in the body is related, so you free one part of the body and the rest responds."

See Your Body Like Never Before with a 3-D Body Scan
If want to really see your body's problem areas, a 3-D body scan will do the trick. The scan gives you the insight you need to find out what those areas are so you can come up with a plan to improve them.
A machine called the Styku is used to take accurate measurements of your entire shape. To use it, you stand on a circular pedestal that spins you around slowly for 30 seconds while it’s scanning.
Body scans are one aspect of a Metabolic Activity Plan, which ensures your metabolism is running at its full potential. "M.A.P." also involves an InBody Composition Analysis, which measures your body’s fat, muscle and water, and a nutrition questionairre.
The combined info helps determine the diet and exercise plan that is most effective for your body. M.A.P. services — available at David Barton’s N.Y.C. gym, TMPL — can help with weight loss and other ailments, but can be costly. TMPL's program starts at $750.

Sweat It out with an Infrared Sauna Session
The electromagnetic light produced by an infrared sauna — available at spas and wellness centers nationwide — penetrates the body on a cellular level.
“Your heart rate goes up, you’re burning calories, and you start sweating, but it’s not your typical sweat that’s water — it’s mostly toxins that you’re sweating out,” Joesph Harounian, the founder of Firm Body Evolution in West Hollywood, told PEOPLE.
Infrared saunas provide more of the usual sauna perks — including glowing skin, weight loss and muscle relief — in way less time.
“If someone could stand being in a conventional sauna for hours, they would get the same benefits, but it’s impossible to tolerate that kind of a heat and not dehydrate and have problems,” Harounian said.
