Cryotherapy, Light Therapy, Local Cryo & Electrical Stimulation 

 
 
 
 

The Science 

Cryotherapy 

Reduces Inflammation 

 

Too much inflammation in the body is a common issue many people are dealing with today. That overload of inflammation in our body we get from food, lack of sleep and daily activity will cause pain symptoms. Our cold therapy – whole body cryotherapy – will dramatically reduce the amount of inflammation circulating around the body leading to less pain symptoms after each cryo session. 

Our program goal at Glace: limit the amount of pain you’re feeling daily by lessening the amount of inflammation that is circulating around your body and in your blood stream by using cryotherapy – cold therapy – to stop inflammation in its tracks. 

We can fight pain by producing an anti-inflammatory fight or flight mode response. The nitrogen vapor never penetrates past your skin but because of the ultra low temperatures were using, the brain senses the very cold temperatures through the thermo receptors of the skin cells and in response causes vasoconstriction all over the body which will in turn limit the outpour of inflammation everywhere. 

Light Therapy 

Repairs Damaged Cells 

 

Light therapy is a natural process the body can use to actually repair damaged and broken cells inside the body. A lot of pain people feel is from damaged cells inside the body and simply regenerating these cells can provide people with tremendous pain relief. 

Our program goal at Glace: repair broken, damaged and unresponsive cells inside th body by using led light therapy to simulate reactivation. We use a light therapy that has technology developed by NASA – Celluma LED Light Therapy – and is FDA cleared to fight and treat pain symptoms. 

We can do this by using one of life’s favorite energy sources – light. The light has different wavelengths to penetrate shallow or deep depending on area to wake up broken cells. The Celluma is bendable and can easily be placed on the back, shoulders, elbows, knees, neck, wrist or ankles.

Local Cryotherapy 

Targets Specific Inflamed Areas

With local cryotherapy we can target specific areas of the body similar to icing to decrease inflammation in a targeted area. Instead of 30 minutes, by using nitrogen we can effectively ice any area for just 7 to 10 minutes. Local cryotherapy is a great service for trying to heal a specific problem area such as the knee, elbow, ankle, neck, lower back or hand. 

Our program goal at Glace: Use local icing – localized cryotherapy – to heal specific injured areas on the body. 

Similar to our whole body cryotherapy the local cryotherapy aims to decrease inflammation in a more targeted fashion. Decreasing inflammation can lead to less pain symptoms. 

Electrical Stimulation 

Numbs Damaged Nerves

 

Electrical currents sent by our Marco Pro unit can numb the cell nerves causing pain which will in turn suppress pain symptoms for multiple hours.

Our program goal at Glace: Use the Marc Pro Electrical Stimulation unit to target and numb clients pain. 

Units sending electrical currents for pain symptoms are also known as – tens units – which are commonly seen and used by physical therapists after therapy sessions. We use the electric stimulation unit similarly to physical therapists in that when we are targeting pain symptoms we use high frequency channels for 10 to 30 minutes of time.
