Karlene’s Journey to find Cryotherapy

Karlene’s Journey Find Cryotherapy South Carolina

Hello everyone my name is Karlene M. Krista I’m talking to you about cryotherapy. I will give you a somewhat brief background of my physical and medical disabilities. About three years ago , I was diagnosed with a disease which causes your nerve endings to flare, ping sting, and burn with constant numbness and pain.

It is caused by compression of the nerves in my spinal cord along the right side of my body. I have been to the Mayo clinic, Cleveland clinic and there is no cure . Any operation would caused me to be a paraplegic or paralyzed from the neck down. The only thing out there for me is scheduled drugs that work on nerve endings to numb and quiet nerve endings. They do not take away the burning nor do they take away the tingling. The medicine helped considerably but they do not take away the pain that accompanies all of that. In two years time the doses of medicine morphed out of control …….so I thought.  I am allergic to all  scheduled II & III ,IV Narcotic drugs with the exception of pure morphine. There is so more to this story that I cannot interject because it is so involved.

I needed injections in my spine every 3 to 4 weeks and the drugs that I was on caused me to be a crazy person in a body that I did not recognize.  The weight gain was tremendous. I believed my mind to be almost gone. I couldn’t focus,I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t remember from one sentence to the next, and that was OK with my both of my doctors …..I even went so far to schedule an MRI of my brain to see if I had dementia or Alzheimer’s.

During the Christmas holidays of 2016, I made the  decision to come to Hilton Head for 4 months. Alone.  My reason for doing this, was to go off all my drugs cold turkey.  I did. I was deathly sick for weeks (my niece is an ER nurse and advised otherwise but she kept in touched and helped me mentally.) I did not leave my home for three weeks, not once except to walk the beach.

Fortunately for me the ocean was 50 yards from where I was staying and the comfort I received from smelling, seeing, and feeling the ocean gave me added strength.

Dealing With Pain Will Sometimes Take
More Than Having A Beautiful View

The fourth and fifth weeks I was  different l realized my brain worked and I could focus and the pain was bearable with lots of Aleve. 

One afternoon I was with a friend in her shop and a customer came in and she had mentioned that she had just come from a cryotherapy session and that it was her fourth session. She said she felt like a new person. When she was finished talking I ask her some questions,  she gave me Albert’s name and phone number and told me to call him and he would explain  how cryotherapy work .  I spoke to Albert that night for a short time, and got an appointment the next day.   

I told my entire story to Albert and had a few breakdowns in our conversation but I knew that he could tell that I was in a great amount of pain and he believed that the cryotherapy would help me. My first session I felt no change, nothing. I believed in Alberts knowledge and he convinced me that if I stuck with it, it would help me. I signed up for 10 sessions and I must tell you in all honesty by the seventh session I still was not convinced this was for me. 

I took a long walk on the beach and thought about what I was doing in each session and why I wasn’t getting the full benefits,,,,, and I got it, I figured it out. When I was in the chamber  I was tense, never once did I just relax and take my head somewhere else and just enjoy what it was doing for me and how it was supposed to heal me.

I went into my eighth session relaxed and my head somewhere beautiful and it worked.  I could feel a difference, a huge difference, Little by little the pain was subsiding, still there but it wasn’t anything like it used to be . I signed up for 10 more sessions and after those 10 sessions I no longer was in pain. I had discomfort but NO pain.  With everyone of those sessions I became stronger mentally and physically .I became ME.

Cryotherapy Did Not Help My Life
Cryotherapy Gave Me My Life Back 

When I left the island to go home I  had 27 sessions of cryotherapy I had no numbness a little tingling and still a small amount of discomfort but nothing like it used to be.

There needs to be a way to bring this healing modality to the forefront.

I am home now, on May 1 I started cryotherapy again. I found a cryotherapy center within 9 miles of my home. The business is only seven months old and the owner is  trying hard to make it work. Helping people is their main objective just as it was for Albert.

I have at least four sessions a week and I constantly improve I can walk down steps, I can ride a bike and soon I’m going to start swimming.  Find Cryotherapy South Carolina


I am so  grateful to Albert for being there for me, and encouraging me to stick with the cryotherapy program that he believes  in with all of his heart, yes Albert I am in deep gratitude to you my friend.

One last thing you should know.  I live in a condo and I have lived here for 26 year and as you might suspect it’s a small great community where everyone knows one another. When I came home at the end of April people came up to me and said

“Oh My God you look so good, what have you done ,your face is different, you look so happy.  Are you still in pain? What did you do.” 

In this short amount of time  being home I have two people that have signed up for cryotherapy where I go.

Thank you Albert.

I want to Thank Ms. Karlene for allowing me to share her story with others so that her journey may help others to embark upon their own towards health and wellbeing. My only goal is to help you reach yours. Albert W Knight
