Some aches and pains are just a part of life. But when they become debilitating, such as in the case of friends Michelle Yourek Grosse and Alli Chambers, something has to give.
In Chambers’ case, a nagging back injury forced her out of a career she loved. Then, in 2013, she discovered cryotherapy through Grosse. Originally intended for athletic recovery, chronic pain, and natural healing, it became her solace, working wonders where other treatments had done little to nothing. She was sold.
“Michelle and I combined our superpowers, and before we knew it, The Cryo Spa became the first whole body cryotherapy location to open in Fort Worth,” Chambers says.
Today, Chambers says the close friends and business partners’ passion for cryo and holistic health and wellness has grown exponentially. “We’re in a unique position to spend our days helping people reach goals and feel their best,” she says. “What a life. When your life is committed to assisting others, it’s virtually impossible to have a bad day. It’s a distinct honor.”
With locations in easily accessible areas on Lovers Lane in Dallas, convenient to the Park Cities, and in Fort Worth’s renowned cultural district, CryoSpa continues to gather rave reviews.
Gross and Chambers are the business’ staunchest ambassadors. Administered by trained staff with diverse backgrounds in nursing, diet and nutrition, physical therapy, and personal training, CryoSpa’s dedication to whole body cryotherapy encourages bodies to heal naturally—from the inside out—based on individual needs. The therapy uses liquid nitrogen, in a gas form, to create low temperatures that naturally stimulate the body’s functionary systems. Each three-minute session promotes natural healing from the inside out. Subzero temperatures send the blood from extremities rushing to the core (vasoconstriction) to protect organs and create heat. After a session, when the body is re-exposed to room temperatures, the process is reversed (vasodilation), instantly sending fresh, nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood back into the body providing instant detoxification.
“If the performance of any organ or muscle was low or impaired, these deficiencies are remedied as much as possible by the enriched blood,” Chambers says. “Muscles are rejuvenated while fatigue and soreness are significantly reduced or eliminated.”
Whole body cryotherapy application varies from helping reduce inflammation and pain and speeding muscle recovery after workouts, to assisting patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and numerous skin disorders, or those simply wanting to perform, look, and feel their best. And treatment is 100 percent natural.
There are two types of devices used for whole body cryotherapy: the cryochamber and the single person cryosauna. Each session lasts only a few short minutes. All devices are equipped with numerous safety features, and doors are never locked, which allows clients to stop at any time.
Chambers considers herself a “walking endorsement,” explaining that whole body cryotherapy changed her life, just as it has for many of her loyal clients.
