Chicago CryoSpa was conceptualized by Jim Karas. After traveling to Los Angeles, Jim visited Cryo Healthcare, which is owned by Dr. Jonas Kuehne who, with his brother Robin, have perfected the Cryotherapy technology. After experiencing the Whole Body Cryotherapy, the CryoFacial™ and spot treating two areas of injury, Jim did not hesitate to purchase the equipment, lease the space on Lincoln Avenue in between his two personal fitness training studios (www.jimkaras.com) and open for business.
What made Jim such a believer? After having suffered from a small achilles tear, he couldn’t get complete relief and found his movement to be limited and walked with a slight limp. After three consecutive local treatments directly on the injured area, the swelling diminished and the pain and limp was gone. In addition, the CryoFacial™ immediately changed the appearance of his skin. They promised an instantaneous reduction in inflammation and he could immediately see the difference. Additionally, Jim noticed that the size of the individual pores was reduced. Finally, the Whole Body Cryotherapy gave him an unbelievable boost of energy about twenty minutes after the treatment. It gave him the same endorphin “high” that most people receive through an intense workout. As Jim says, “You just have to experience it to understand as it’s mind-blowing”.
The immediate response to Chicago CryoSpa has been overwhelming. As Karas has successfully been in the weight loss and fitness business for over 27 years, many opportunities have come his way. Let’s face it, the man who keeps Hugh Jackman and Diane Sawyer in top form and has written five New York Times bestsellers has to be in high demand. Not one opportunity has compelled him to take such immediate action with the exception of Cryotherapy.
