What is cold water immersion
Recovery is a critical part of training as it is used to minimise the risk of overtraining and injury, whilst promoting physical and psychological benefits, allowing you to continue building denser muscle groups. This becomes particularly important during intense training or competition periods to sustain an optimal state of performance, making sure you are constantly hitting new personal bests..
Understanding its importance has led to the use and development of many recovery techniques such as massage therapy, foam rolling, electrical stimulation and water immersion therapy which includes cold water immersion or typically known as an ice bath treatment
How does the cold water work?
Cold water immersion works in a variety of ways, many studies suggest that there are multiple effects it has on the body however the main one being inflammatory response time.
The decrease in the perception of pain from the cold water is related to reduced inflammatory pathways specifically reduced nociceptor sensitisation, reduced exercise-induced oedema and reduced white blood cell access.
Is it dangerous?
Due to the nature of the treatment when you enter the cold water immersion you may feel an increase in breathing and shock the body as your body temperature changes. However, this is completely normal and you will be prompted prior to entering the tub.
We promise you won’t regret it.
