Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET)

Weight loss

If you suffer from any of the following, your body may benefit from LET

  • Do you have tender breasts or breast lumps?
  • Do you suffer from fluid retention or edema?
  • Do you suffer from lymphedema?
  • Do you have post-surgery swelling?
  • Do you feel tired, run down or stressed?
  • Do you get lactic acid build up in your muscles after exercise?
  • Do you get recurrent colds and infections?
  • Do you suffer from irritable bowel or constipation?
  • Do you suffer from poor circulation?
  • Do you gain weight easily or find it hard to lose?
  • Do you have strong body odor?
  • Do you have cellulite?

Benefits of using LET Therapy:

  1. A two-part system that removes waste from the tissues & accelerates lymphatic drainage. This combination causes a stronger detox response than MLD alone.
  2. Features modifiable frequency & intensity, so treatments are completely customized to the individual.
  3. Has a restorative effect on the LS & can improve lymph flow through scar tissue.
  4. Targets acupuncture meridian system, clears blockages, & restores balance.
  5. Brightens & improves the appearance of the skin.


LET is not a lymphatic drainage massage. It is an accelerated cleaning of the lymphatic system done using medical electronic instrumentation called the Aria LET Elite, which is trademarked by the company Arcturus Star Products. LET does not require hands-on techniques to be effective.  The Aria LET Elite is an FDA registered device. It uses a combination of electromagnetic energy fields to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, decongests soft tissue, and promote healing.

Stephanie Kos is Chicago’s ONLY licensed Clinical Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) who provides LET with the FDA registered Aria LET Elite.

STEPHANIE became interested in massage therapy and alternative healthcare in high school while working for an aromatherapy shop and spa. She attended the clinical massage program at the Soma Institute in Chicago and has been a licensed massage therapist since 2011. Through her own healing journey Stephanie discovered the healing benefits of Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET). Her experience receiving LET was so profound that she decided to offer it in her practice. She has been specializing in Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET) since 2018 and is the owner of an FDA registered Aria LET Elite. She has 5,000+ hours of experience applying LET.

What to Expect During an LET Session: The treatments are done in a massage setting, but this is not a massage. LET is applied directly to the skin through a medical grade glass bulb. A series of manual lymphatic strokes are applied before and after the LET application to evaluate specific lymphatic structures.

What to Expect After an LET Session: The LET treatment feels relaxing and gentle during application, however, it is encouraging the detoxification of tissue that potentially has years of waste build up and toxins.


How to Prepare for Your LET Session: Be well hydrated for a day or so before your visit and continue to hydrate following treatment. Adequate hydration will help to reduce possible side effects associated with detoxing. Avoid applying thick lotion, cream, or oils on the skin prior to treatment. No deodorant. It can be brought with and put on after. To receive LET on the face, arrive with a clean face, no make-up. Or bring make-up wipes to remove and clean face prior to treatment. No wet hair. Plan to remove all jewelry surrounding the neck, face, and on the hands or wrist. Eating a light meal is ok beforehand, but not a large one.

LET Sessions can be done bi-weekly.


Common Side Effects:  Post-nasal drainage, Feeling the need to swallow, Feeling tired or sleepy, Darker or more intense urine, More plentiful bowel movement, Increased visibility of boney prominences, Improved respiratory function, Brain fog reduction, Deep sleep the night of a session, Improved range of motion in joints


Contraindications: Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Known blood clots, DVT, AVM, carotid blockage, or high stroke potential/history, Pregnant [Note: use caution with any lymphatic therapy if trying to become pregnant]


Precautions: Breastfeeding moms need to dump their milk for 12 hours after a session, Cancer: more information is needed regarding stage of treatment, Breast Implants: indicate type of implant, Pacemaker: the area immediately around it will be left alone, but the session is 100% safe, PEMF is contraindicated for pacemakers, Please indicate the location of injectables: Botox, Juvéderm, collagen or fat fillers, Open Wounds: the wound will be left alone but the surrounding area can be treated

"Everyone at Chicago Cryospa are always so friendly and professional. I’m usually on my way home from the west loop and in need of recovery, and everyone does their absolute best to fit me in. This was especially true yesterday. The two ladies there are so incredibly friendly and helpful".

"Let me just start off by saying Racie is a true boss on the massage table! I had a knot so big in my shoulder she was calling it my little brother lol. Not only was she easy to communicate with she was very intuitive as to what it was I was experiencing and able to take the right approach to get things feeling better. I did deep tissue and boy oh boy does she have hands the Vikings would respect. Let me tell you it was a good hurt though if you know how that goes. Never felt as if she was doing more damage than good and when it came to certain areas of current or past injuries she kindly eased up upon request. The atmosphere itself was one I had never experienced either. Not only did they have a perfect temped bed/room, the music was relaxingly enjoyable, and they also had this cool lighting that made it look like you were lost in the universe. Truly great experience with Racie!!!! Highly recommend!! Now as far as the rest of the place goes it was nothing short of top notch customer service. Anne, Brittany, and Sampson were all very accommodating and definitely made me feel very comfortable. They have many services that I had never experienced before and at no point did I feel pressured or rushed during each one. Each of them took the time to answer any questions or concerns that I may have had, making feel like I was in good hands. My Chicago CryoSpa visit was definitely one I won’t forget and my little brother is basically gone now!! Thanks again Racie"

"I've been working in the health and wellness industry for 8 years, and I have finally found 2 treatments that have changed my life. The first is Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET) with Stephanie. During my session, I suddenly felt this huge state of relaxation come over me and it was such a pleasant feeling. I slept well, and the next day I had mental clarity and truly felt good. The next week I tried Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) with Stephanie. After my session, again, I felt a wonderful feeling that I have not felt in such a long time. It felt like whatever she did removed or flushed things out of my body that needed to be removed. Both of these sessions have had a tremendous effect on my mental health and I plan to continue my journey with both LET an MLD with Stephanie. I really hope this review can help someone else who may be struggling and need some additional wellness treatments in their lives".

"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"!
"From the treatments to the staff, everything is 10 out of 10".

"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".

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!
"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"!

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.
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
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.
