"Loved the compression boots, loved the cryo - tried both for the first time and this may become a new addiction :) Very welcoming and accommodating staff made the whole experience so awesome. Thank you"!

"The staff and services are absolutely incredible! I noticed an improvement for mild Crohn’s symptoms from cryotherapy and LED bed but LET Therapy was a complete game changer for my digestion and overall health! I had never heard of LET therapy and was apprehensive when the staff recommended it because of the cost. I am so glad I trusted Ann’s recommendation after she listened to what was going on with me. These results are well worth the money! I’m obsessed. I’m so grateful to have found Stephanie who is extremely knowledgeable about the body and passionate about the lymphatic system (which I never thought about before). This is a very cool technology that is unbelievably relaxing. I never expected to find something like this and I look forward to these visits. After the first treatment, my digestion improved almost immediately and my stress was noticeably lower. I didn’t think it was possible but the second session results were even better. I’ve been going back regularly. In addition to improved digestion, I’ve noticed ease in meditation and less congestion everywhere (I didn’t realize I had congestion but I feel cleaner and lighter throughout). I feel confident that I’ll be able to control my disease better in the future. I would recommend trying LET therapy to anyone but especially those with IBD or other digestive struggles. This was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. 😊 Many thanks to the staff here who are all so friendly and caring"!
"PERFECT DAY .... Once at The Spa they welcomed you with smiles explained the process and answer your questions ..very clean and professional found street parking with no problem ..... I will return......THANKS CHICAGO CRYOSPA".
"Chicago CryoSpa is not only an exquisite space, but the staff are all incredibly welcoming and engaging. I’ve had 1 t-shock treatment and look forward to more and exploring more of what they have to offer"!
"From the treatments to the staff, everything is 10 out of 10".
"So nice and relaxing. Felt awesome to get a nice sweat, while not lifting a finger. The staff is super kind, and the place is nice, clean and parking is easy".

"Stephanie's LET massage is incredible! She is so beyond knowledgeable and I feel so much better after doing it"!
An LET treatment with Stephanie is a master class in health and wellness. Her knowledge of the body and anatomy and especially, how critical the lymphatic system is to optimum health is fascinating—and life changing. I felt the changes in my body right away and the next day, couldn’t believe the change in my face! Thank you, Jim Karas for your expertise and taste and vision in giving us Stephanie and her LET treatments. From the incomparable Ann and the best staff in town to greet you, Chicago CryoSpa is a Chicago treasure!
"I had an LET treatment with Stephanie after weeks of not feeling well. I feel this treatment along with Stephanie’s expertise and manual bodywork of the over all lymphatic system was very healing for my body and was part of the treatments that got my health back on track! Thank you Stephanie and Chicago CryoSpa"!
Eirene H
"I’m thrilled to say I’m experiencing great results from my LET treatments! I identified the areas to Stephanie and she is focusing on them as well as my entire system. I’m most excited that my c-section scar tissue is lessening after 3 babies and my girlfriend even noticed my jaw line is becoming more toned".
Susan S
Post surgery on my knee I was having continued swelling and pain sleeping and I was looking for anything that would help. You can only use those ice packs for so long and with minimal benefit. Then I got a promotional email from Chicago CryoSpa and pulled up their website. I read about LET for lymphatic drainage and I noticed they can spot treat you with Cryotherapy. Sign me up! After 1 treatment my swelling went down to almost zero. I'm now going weekly for LET and 2x a week for cryo treatment. It will be an 8 month recovery to full motion so any help with internal tissues is speeding up my recovery. Highly recommended!
Alex S
"Top notch services and staff. Super customer focused and I always feel like they are accommodating and flexible. Through promotions I've been able to try some of the other services outside of cryotherapy and have been a repeat customer. Special shoutout to Ann and Ashley for always being so fun to work with"!
"I really enjoyed the ease of scheduling - zero wait! Employee was very friendly and diminished my first timer fears. My skin feels tighter and and it’s only ten minutes which is nice".
"Great experience and Kendall was awesome at explaining everything and providing amazing customer service. I will be back".
Martha K
"I have been going to the Chicago Cryo Spa for many years, love the services and the people. Recently I started LET sessions with Stephanie, it was amazing! Not only is it one of the most relaxing experiences but also the health benefits are amazing. I highly recommend trying the services at Chicago Cryo spa, especially LET"!
Helen P
"Staff is super friendly and welcoming, which can feel like a rarity at many med spas or wellness centers! I love how cryo makes me feel, and the red light therapy beds are so soothing, I swear I can see a difference in my skin quality in 2 sessions"!

I've been seeing Stephanie for Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy treatments for over a year now. Her LET treatments have accelerated my health more than any other health or wellness treatment I've received (countless). LET was the missing puzzle piece in my overall wellness routine and both helped me heal after a traumatic health scare, in addition to now helping me to maintain a higher baseline of health than ever before. The treatments have not only helped with my general lymphedema, but have also noticeably boosted my immunity and lowered inflammation over time. Stephanie is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and extremely warm. She genuinely cares and it shows! I can't recommend her services enough.
Beau A
Such friendly, informed and helpful staff made my visit to the CryoSpa amazing! Whenever I'm in Chicago, a quick freeze helps me recharge.
Tim N
I had had a fantastic massage and my wife also had lymphatic drainage massage as well. We loved our experience and plan on coming back to visit the Chicago CryoSpa soon!
Heather K
It was my first time trying a fascial stretch. My muscles felt sore before the stretch and after I felt like a whole new person. I left feeling balanced, less stressed, more flexible, and my muscle pain (because of this service) was corrected and ready to take on future workouts!
John N
If you have redness and puffiness in your face this is a great treatment. It really tightens and smoothes your skin.
Ashley A
My mom and I were very impressed! We had such a great experience at Chicago CryoSpa! Great staff! Super clean and welcoming facility! Top notch equipment, and the first cryo center in Chicago! The founder is extremely knowledgeable around health and wellness and not only practices what he preaches, he writes books as well! My mom bought one and can’t put it down. We will 100% be back!!
Yvette C
They supply everything and the infrared helped me feel brand new. I usually just get a massage when I feel sore, but this was a great option when I couldn't get in to see my therapist. Clean, modern and helpful staff. They have a rainfall shower with shower gel and simple amenities, it was nice!
Mike K
I can say that I have A LOT More energy for 24 hours after treatments. I also think that I am less sore the following day after a workout
Denee' L
Very friendly staff, clean space, and warm. Informative for first-time users and keep you company while in the WBC machine. Definitely keeps your mind off of the cold. You have my recommendation!
Patrick J
I just had a 90-minute massage with Adam. Finally a trained and intuitive LMT. With a firm touch, he found every knot; instead of mindlessly punishing the muscles, he melted the knots and the pain with a building, purposeful-pressure, that was absolute perfection.
Heather W
The Cryo T-Shock is truly amazing! The T-Shock is the real deal! I did the full 5 treatments on my stomach and started to notice that my little pouch looked a bit tighter after my 3rd session... so I kept going.
Linda P
Great service! Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Had hip replacement and the localized treatment helped immensely with after surgery pain. Whole body cryo great for my arthritis!
Anthony M
This is by far the best cryotherapy spa I've been to. Because of their large capacity liquid nitrogen tanks, CryoSpa is able to achieve really cold temperatures that makes the whole difference! Very highly recommended
Rita T
Such amazing customer service! Ann was amazing….so informative and friendly! 😊
Andrew H
Just received the greatest 60 min massage at Chicago CryoSpa! This was my first time there and the whole experience was incredible.
