Ice Bath Benefits

When you immerse your body in icy cold water it activates a survival mechanism in the  base of your brain ( limbic area) programmed to respond to dramatic external events, such as freezing. This then activates the  'fight-or-flight' response which automatically starts the survival process of restoring your body's core temperature to safe levels by increasing blood flow and withdrawing most of the blood from your skin and outer soft tissue and muscles into the core of your body via your internal organs. 

 

This introduces fresh oxygenated blood and flushes the dangerous toxins and waste products out quickly & effectively, much faster than the natural process. This eliminates the soreness related to exercise and speeds up your muscle recovery process significanty

 

Another benefit of regular icebaths is response to ‘environmental stress’ conditions our brain to cope better with the stressors of everyday life and helps decrease the production of inflammatory cytokines which are linked to anxiety and depression. 

Ice Bath Experience

Lift your mood and mental state

Ice baths naturally create balance and increase the levels of neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and feel-good serotonin which elevates your mood.

Reduce Recovery time

During a training session, your muscles burn fuel and that creates a build-up of toxic waste products and lactic acids. Your body will naturally eliminate these waste products over a day or two however ice baths can reduce this recovery time to hours.

Burn Fat quicker 

By exposing your body to colder temperatures, you’re able to alter the behaviour of your  
fat cells and burn fat faster.

Better Immune System & Energy

Exposure to physiological stressors, challenges your body to function beyond its comfort zone, which has a direct effect on immune function. The body also sets off a response to the nervous system affecting oxygen intake, which helps deliver an increase in energy.

Reach beyond your limits

Challenging your body to function beyond its comfort zone helps teaches you how to cope and handle difficult situations more effectively. Learning to be comfortable in discomfort. 

Promotes better sleep

More than 80% of athletes taking post exercise ice baths report improved mental
state and far better sleep patterns
