Polar bears might know a secret about managing the Arctic’s cold waters as did the ancient Greeks and Romans who also discovered that a super quick, cold water plunge can treat injuries, chronic pain, and fatigue and raise and improve circulation and energy levels. Cold plunge therapy or cold exposure therapy is a type of treatment in which a person immerses in icy water for about 2 – 3 minutes. At Boost Wellness, our plunge tub has a powerful cooling system with filtration and sanitation to perfectly chill a bath significantly lower than the body’s normal temperature with conditions ranging between 39°F – 59°F. To learn more about this type of hydrotherapy, contact our Highland Heights, OH or Avon Lake, OH practice to schedule a consultation with our expert team.
How Does Cold Plunge Therapy Work?
When the body is exposed to cold water, blood rushes to surrounding vital organs. This blood rush pushes the heart to pump more efficiently and enhances blood flow, supplying oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Plunging into these frosty conditions can temporarily place the body into a state of shock but with beneficial effects, such as stimulating leukocytes, which are white blood cells that help combat infections, and causing the lymphatic system to work better as it flushes fluid through the lymph nodes to aid in the detoxification of the body and strengthening of the immune system.
What Are the Benefits of Cold Plunge Therapy?
Cold plunge therapy is a scientifically backed method to promote the body's natural responses and physiological processes for better health and well-being. Researchers of this type of hydrotherapy point to these key advantages:
Enhances athletic recovery and performance
Releases more dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and alertness
Relieves pain and stress
Reduces muscle inflammation
Optimizes lymphatic system
