The brand’s mission is to “improve the health, fitness, and beauty of [its] clients—all with a drug-free, non-invasive and extremely safe treatment.” On top of cryotherapy, the company also offers services such as infrared sauna and light therapy, Slim Pod, NormaTech Compression Therapy,  LED light therapy and more. 

Since opening in Westfield, New Jersey in 2015, ChillRx has designed an aggressive franchise growth strategy awarding opportunities to qualified candidates.
