In a world filled with new and unique beauty procedures, Glace Cryotherapy has emerged as a serious contender. This innovative spa is one of the first of its kind, owned and operated by siblings Skyler Scarlett and Brittney Scarlett-Torres. The spa now has locations from California to Oregon and specializes in giving clients a relaxing, private experience with superior customer service.
Cryotherapy sessions are one of many “hot new things” in the health and beauty industry, offered at exclusive spas across the country. However, the technology has been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians, and came into popularity in the modern world in the 1970’s. Still, the average person isn’t likely to be educated on the process or aware of the many benefits of this unique kind of therapy.
Cryotherapy is a process that uses cold, dry air to induce vasoconstriction (the constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (the dilation of blood vessels) to shock the body into high performance. As Glace’s informative website discusses, the benefits of this procedure range from pain relief to tightened skin, and only increase with more sessions.
Cryotherapy is great for helping the body recover from sports injuries, increasing blood flow and decreasing the sensation of pain, improving mood, increasing energy, and increasing collagen production in the skin. From athletes to students, the benefits of this innovative therapy are proven effective for anyone.
At Glace, clients can trust that they’ll be provided with a safe and pleasant cryotherapy experience. All sessions are coordinated by trained and certified technicians who ensure that each session is relaxing and comfortable for all involved. With their combined knowledge of physiology and marketing experience, Skyler and Brittney ensure their clients an innovative experience with this centuries-old therapy.
STEPS TO A CRYOTHERAPY SESSION AT GLACÉ
Step 1 Head to the private changing room where you will disrobe (minimal clothing recommended, men must wear underwear) and put on one pair of socks, gloves, shoes and robe all of which will be provided by GLACÉ.
Step 2 Step into the Cryosauna. Your trained and certified Cryosauna operator will be there to guide you through your Cryotherapy session. You will then hand your robe to the operator. Privacy is very important to us at GLACÉ, we will only see your face, as the rest of your body will be concealed in the Cryosauna.
Step 3 The operator will begin your Cryotherapy session- cool dry air will circulate your body for just 2-3 minutes in which during this time your skin surface temperature will drop significantly.
Step 4 During vasoconstriction, toxins continue to be flushed from muscle and skin surface tissue. Red blood cells are enriched with oxygen, nutrients and enzymes.
Step 5 Upon exiting the Cryosauna when the Cryotherapy session is over, the body vasodilates and the enriched blood is released back to the skin surface tissues, muscle tissues, and joint spaces that have been flushed of toxins.
Update: The deal with Barbara Corcoran fell through after the episode aired. Glace Cryotherapy is available inside select LA Fitness locations.
