TLU Athletic Recovery & Wellness: Healing with Cryotherapy


With a big leap from operating out of his garage for several months, Zach Vries is excited to offer clients the benefits of his passion for cryotherapy, now located at TLU Athletic Recovery & Wellness in Mooresville.

“We are the only business doing localized cryotherapy in the area, and we focus specifically on athletic recovery,” explains Zach. That’s great news for local athletes, and all you weekend warriors who often need a little help come Monday!


“I wanted to get into the athletic recovery and wellness field because I wanted a job where I could help people,” he adds. “Eventually, I met someone who was able to show me how to get a cryotherapy machine, and I jumped on the opportunity.”

Even though his treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, Zach meets many people who are really skeptical if cryotherapy actually works. He encourages doubters to give it a try, and he offers discounted trial sessions for a potential client’s first visit. Clients find it amazing what wonders a four or five minute treatment can accomplish. Zach also shares firsthand experience that cryotherapy can heal burns that occur in the kitchen – just ask him!

“For cryotherapy we can do pain management, cryo-facials, aesthetics, and mood or energy boosts,” he explains. “If there is time, all clients also receive a free 10-minute session on our air compression suit.”

Sometimes happy clients say it best!
