Congratulations to Chill Cryotherapy Owner Julie Shanebrook

Congratulations to Chill Cryotherapy Owner Julie Shanebrook

Julie Shanebrook was featured in the January 30, 2017 issue of NJBIZ in an article entitled "The Big Chill". She wants to bring cryotherapy to the mainstream by franchising her Westfield-based business, Chill Cryotherapy, as ChillRX in order to bring cryotherapy to more people in need throughout the country. Founder and CEO Shanebrook, after finding personal relief from back pain, is convinced that the brief application of extremely cold air vapor, chilled by liquid nitrogen, is an anti-inflammatory and analgesic to the body. The success of her Westfield store has propelled her to want to expand the concept. Bravo to our local woman in business!
