Simpson spent time in a -135C cryotherapy chamber as he recovered from his side's 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The right-back posted a picture on his Instagram page and could be seen taking protective measures from the icy temperatures.

He wore a face mask, gloves and sweat-bands on his arms and head.
Cryotherapy chambers are regularly used as a recovery tool in a range of professional sports and, with the games coming thick and fast, are a useful accessory for athletes.
The exposure to such a dramatic drop in body heat reduces pain and inflammation in muscles.
Simpson accompanied his picture with the caption: 'Happy Easter everyone, Ice cryo chamber for recovery this morning -135.'
The 30-year-old featured in Craig Shakespeare's starting line-up against Crystal Palace and picked up a yellow card as his team added another point to their tally.
Shakespeare has revived the fortunes of the Foxes who now lie in 12th place, nine points clear of the relegation zone.
Simpson will be hoping his commitment to recovery will pay off with Leicester's Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid taking place at the King Power on Tuesday.
