Impact Cryotherapy Cryosauna Freezes Out Competition on ABC’s “Shark Tank”

Our retail partner GLACÉ CRYOTHERAPY, from Carmel, CA, pitched the sharks on Friday’s primetime episode. Shark Barbara Corcoran bites for $100,000 and receives a 30% share.

ATLANTA, GA and CARMEL, CA — Mar. 1 , 2016 — We’re proud to report that our retail partner, GLACÉ CRYOTHERAPY, received $100,000 and buy-in from “Shark Tank” investor Barbara Corcoran. Owners Skyler Scarlett and Brittney Scarlett-Torres put their whole-body cyrosauna, manufactured by Impact Cryotherapy, in the spotlight on Friday night’s episode. With support from Corcoran, the GLACÉ CRYOTHERAPY team plans to extend their franchising opportunity to operators nationwide.

After taking the bait Barbara Corcoran exclaimed, “These kids are golden!” We couldn’t agree more and Chad Finnegan, VP of Business Development, said it best, “Building the market with a professional and energetic team like GLACÉ CRYOTHERAPY makes what we do even more exciting. They have a great business model and those across the country could benefit from their knowledge.”

The same attention to detail and future-focused drive that is applied to our manufacturing process is also used as a benchmark to help choose retail partners. Every potential operator is evaluated for their ability to connect with customers, their dedication to whole-body wellness, and their fit within the Octagon Experience; as well as their retail location and business plan. The brother-sister team behind GLACÉ CRYOTHERAPY is one of our industry-leading retail partners and we are excited to help as their success continues to grow.

Impact Cryotherapy is the leading cryosauna manufacturer in the United States. We stand behind our iconic product with an elite support team and the quality guarantee that comes from being made in the USA. Richard E. Otto, Impact Cryotherapy CEO and Co-Founder, states, “By manufacturing Impact Cryotherapy equipment in the U.S., we have end-to-end control of the engineering, design, manufacturing process, quality assurance, safety and energy efficiency, installation, training and service.”

To date, hundreds of Impact Cryotherapy cryosaunas are used in 38 states and internationally by a wide range of wellness entrepreneurs. Professional and university sports teams, resorts and spas, and fitness and training centers also rely on Impact Cryotherapy equipment for its performance-enhancing, whole-body healing, and rejuvenation capabilities.

Whole-body cryotherapy was introduced in Japan during the 1970s to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and the practice quickly spread throughout Europe in the following years. Our modern, whole-body cryosauna features a height-adjustable platform that ensures the user’s head remains outside the unit. The cryosauna then fills with nitrogen vapor which drops the temperature to a range of (minus) -1 80°F to – 210°F, and temporarily lowers the temperature of the skin’s top layer. The treatment lasts a maximum of three minutes before the Impact Cryotherapy cryosauna automatically deactivates. This deep, dry chill hacks into your evolutionary bio-responses to drive blood into the body’s core and protect the major organs. Once outside the cryosauna, this nutrient-rich oxygenated blood is circulated throughout the body
