About

The mission is not just to heal and transform lives but also to educate and empower!
  
Organically grown through a diligent personal search for health and healing, The Lift CryoSpa offers a synergistic combination of methods and modalities.
The driving force for the creation of The Lift by co-founder Dora Martindale came after decades of her own personal health and healing struggles. After living a lifetime of diets and health battles and seeing her own daughters repeat the same vicious cycle, she found a drive for searching and finding, learning and healing, awakening and empowering. Through intense study, training, and inspiring mentors and healers, she started reforming her life step-by-step working towards total well-being. This only deepened her desire to help others.
A Mother-Daughter Duo
At the cusp of her second pregnancy, co-founder Jessica Carnes knew the battle to lose the added weight would be even harder than it was eight years prior. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Jessica had many of the same battles with diets and overall health. The two often found themselves discussing the hardships they were facing. 
Through exploration, research and learning, the two found many options for improving health and well-being. The choices available to them in their region however were limited to none. They decided that was not good enough, and the seed for their holistic health spa was planted. 
The team knew they wanted methods and modalities that supported and reinforced the others. Dora and Jessica began their search for innovative services with real results to bring to western Oklahoma. Knowing their own struggles, the duo began their search with the most natural, non-invasive body contouring systems. Quality, safety and reliability led to the purchase of their first system, CryoSkin 3.0. With the ability to use the body’s natural processes to painlessly deliver results, the duo knew this was the machine for them. 
The overwhelming response from the community gave them the reassurance to continue along their journey turning The Lift CryoSpa into what it is today. With a multitude of systems working in conjunction to one another, the synergy holds incredible potential for a full life transformation and deep healing far beyond any of them practiced individually. 
The mission is not just to heal and transform lives but also to educate and empower. The Lift CryoSpa and team strive to help others achieve their goals around beauty and overall wellness, performance and recovery, and pain management. Giving people not just the experience, but the knowledge and tools for an integrated and sustainable life of health, beauty, peak performance, and purposeful living.
