SelfKaire CEO Kathy Chou Is Combining Ancient Eastern Medical Knowledge With 21st Century Technology



Kathy Chou

SelfKaire CEO and Wharton Business School graduate Kathy Chou has made headlines recently after the launch of the new Kairetool™–a popular DIY skincare and body sculpting tool that’s making its way into purses, pockets, gym bags, and backpacks across the country, dubbed “magic” by Jejune Magazine and a “serious skin saver” by Marie Claire.

Chou founded SelfKaire after working 100+ hour weeks as an investment banker, stuck day after day in a sedentary routine. Lymphatic and circulatory issues led to lymphedema, lung infections, and other illnesses thought by her doctors to be genetic. But a visit to a traditional eastern health practitioner in Beijing changed her views on healthcare forever.

“Even though I was skeptical… [it] transformed my view on health and I spent the next 9 years researching ancient Eastern medicine with top practitioners to weed out convoluted, ineffective methods,” said Chou.

“I combined the most innovative theories that mitigate time commitment to bring you a truly disruptive, non-invasive beauty brand created to promote physical and mental health and body positivity.”

Enter the Kairetool™, an at-home solution to detoxification, body sculpting, and cellulite reduction, combining ancient eastern medical knowledge with 21st century technology to help smooth skin, promote circulation, improve lymphatic drainage, and draw out heavy metal toxins in the body by compressing and heating tissues to draw toxins to the skin’s surface.

Crafted with hypoallergenic, surgical grade stainless steel, Kairetool™ is quickly replacing common jade rollers and dry brushes due to its stainless steel construction. Unlike jade rollers and dry brushes, the Kairetool™ never rusts, squeaks, or breaks, is easily washable and can be used on all parts of the face and body.

Daily use of the Kairetool™ detoxifies deep tissues in the body, surpassing even the toughest juice cleanses, diets, and workout regimens without unnecessary retention of fluids in the soft tissues. This results in a more immediate contouring effect, producing a more pronounced bone structure around the treated area.


What Does Kairetool Replace?

Along with old fashioned jade rollers and dry brushes, Kairetool replaces the need for more expensive body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting, EmSculpting, TruSculpting, and Liposuction.



CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that targets and freezes fat cells underneath the skin. Over time, your body metabolizes the dead fat cells, leaving you looking slimmer and trimmer. What people don’t realize is that CoolSculpting can cause necrosis, or death of the body tissue, and can cost up to $1,500 per treated area.



EmSculpting uses electromagnetic energy to cause muscles to perform “supramaximal contractions, or contractions inside the body that force muscle tissue to remodel its inner structure (build muscle) and burn fat. While EmSculpting is an effective body sculpting method, one session costs over $1,000, and professional administrators of the method recommend at least four sessions to see results.



Trusculpting is a non-invasive procedure that uses Radio Frequency (RF) technology for body contouring, sculpting, fat reduction, and cellulite removal around the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and hips. The cheapest of all the current body sculpting options, it costs $750 per area treated.



Liposuction, often referred to as “Lipo,” slims and reshapes areas of the body by surgically removing excess fat and improving body contours. Liposuction is a popular, quick-fix choice for body sculpting, though it can be extremely risky.

Known complications involved with liposuction include anesthesia risks, bruising, persistent changes in skin sensation, damage to nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and lungs, deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications, fluid accumulation, infection, persistent swelling, and need for corrective surgery. This doesn’t take into consideration the cost of Liposuction treatment, which can soar up to $3,500 per treated area of the body.

Take Care, Take Kairetool™

CoolSculpting, EmSculpting, TruSculpting, and Liposuction typically take six months to produce visible results. Moreover, patients are forced to pay per treated area, with an average of 6 – 10 sessions per treated area to achieve desired results.

Daily use of the Kairetool™ detoxifies deep tissues in the body at a fraction of the cost, surpassing even the toughest juice cleanses, diets, and workout regimens without unnecessary retention of fluids in the soft tissues. This results in a more immediate contouring effect, producing pronounced bone structure, healthy flushing, and an instant skin “glow” noticeable within days.

Kairetool™ is your handheld masseuse, physical therapist, and esthetician rolled into one…roller!

Kairetool™ puts the power back into your palm, bringing you all the benefits of more expensive body sculpting methods for the price of one massage. Kairetool™ now comes in a variety of finishes and styles, including matte, jade, rose quartz, and mirror in octagonal and hexagonal shapes. Best of all, it’s easy to clean and use. Watch your skin glow, wherever you go and, wherever you go, take Kairetool™.
