Clinical Deep Tissue Massage

Clinical Massage is a method of massage therapy that combines and applies a range of techniques to achieve a specific outcome, whether that be a reduction in pain, increased range of movement, improved posture or relaxation. This type of massage is tailored to each client. Our Clinical Massage Therapist, Racie often incorporates other modalities such as myofascial release, trigger point work, and stretching to achieve maximum benefits.

Clinical Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle manual technique using four strokes created by Emil Vodder and further developed by Michael Földi. The goal of MLD is to move fluid caused by swelling into the lymphatic vessels. MLD stimulates the lymph vessels and causes increased lymph production, increased lymph angiomotoricity, and increased venous return. The treatment promotes relaxation and alleviates pain. The main job of the lymphatic system is to carry and dispose of waste. Without this technique, excessive waste contributes to excess body weight. MLD uses light pressure and rhythmic movements to stimulate the lymph flow. MLD works by releasing built-up toxins in your body and decreasing swelling and water retention. It also improves the appearance of cellulite and helps your body more naturally target fat deposits, which can be used for energy.

Cupping increases blood circulation by pulling the skin away from the tight or injured area to improve overall blood flow and accelerate repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. Cupping also encourages tissues to release toxins, may reduce stretch marks and scars, can clear congestion and colon blockages and aids digestion.

Trigger Point

Trigger point therapy is a type of massage designed to trigger point pain in specific areas of the body. These points, also called knots, are usually located in muscle tissue and can cause pain when they become irritated or inflamed. Often, this pain is felt in other parts of the body as well due to the way that the nervous system is connected.


RACIE begins each meeting with listening, healing, compassion and empathy. Coming from a long line of healers, she has been informally trained from the age of 5 and a licensed practicing clinical massage therapist since 2014. Her absolute love and forte are deep tissue clinical massage and sports therapy. However, she has many tools in her toolbox which include: prenatal, cupping, guasha, myofascial, lymphatic drainage, acupressure, Thai, shiatsu and reflexology. Her goal in treating clients is to offer the best possible care while offering insight and solutions based on a client’s needs.  

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. Recently, Stephanie also became one of Chicago’s few licensed Clinical Lymphedema Therapists (CLT).

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

"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"!
"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 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!

I had my first experience at Cryospa yesterday, directly following a 95 mile bike ride. As an avid cyclist and weight lifter, I'm always looking for new ways to apologize to my poor joints and muscles, so the concept of putting myself in a subzero tank for three minutes was both intriguing and exciting. I have to say, after being "frozen", and having some compression therapy, I woke up the next morning and my normally tired and achy legs felt amazing. One of the benefits of the cold therapy is rapid muscle recovery.

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!
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!!

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

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.
Andrew H
Just received the greatest 60 min massage at Chicago CryoSpa! This was my first time there and the whole experience was incredible.
