Are Ice Baths good for health?

While we all have seen the buzz of IceBaths, there are a few facts that you should be aware of, before you plan to take a plunge!

 

 

These few things are the ones that make a major difference in a person feeling more relaxed with the Ice Baths or feeling more 🥶 in a ice bath. 

If you’re planning to take one in 2024, Let’s have a look at those in detail!

  1. Ice bath rehabilitation is not as simple as pouring ice and cold water into a bathtub and praying for the best. It is preferable to doing nothing, but it will largely leave you cold.

2. The effectiveness of an ice bath is due to the targeting of the body, If they target the right muscles , your recovery from strenuous activity will increase significantly. 

3. If you perform an extreme sport twice a week, you are up to SIX times more likely to incur an injury from tiredness. An ice bath recovery session will help combat fatigue, reduce the chance of injury, and improve performance. 🧠

4. The effective temperature of an ice bath is between 4 and 10 degrees.
When we enter the ice bath, our body temperature leaves an effect on the water temperature, resulting in the temperature to rise, so the lower the temperature the better.  🛀

5. Prior to a thorough ice bath, your skin temperature will be around 30 degrees, and a CryoSpa Ice Bath 🚿 will drop it by 20 or more degrees, whilst an ice bath will only reduce it by 10 to 12 degrees.

6. A cryo chamber, or air-cooled chamber, lacks heat convection, reducing the impact. 🧊
A CryoSpa Ice Bath directs water over the area you need to recover, resulting in a more penetrating cold that helps you recover faster.

7. People believe that heat and cold have the same effect on recuperation. They do not.
An ice bath will lower the heat of inflammation, whereas a hot bath would not. 
Perhaps you’re familiar with this one. Getting into an ice bath isn’t much pleasure.
Coming out of an ice bath is a lot of pleasure.

8. An ice bath will help you sleep since it soothes your senses and restores the nervous system’s natural equilibrium (homeostasis) after strenuous sports and exercise. 🧘‍♀️

9. THE PLACEBO EFFECT.
It will amaze you to know, Ice Baths are what  we refer to as ‘mental warfare’. This mental warfare subsides over time, reducing sensitivity to cold pain sensations. People frequently report feeling ‘alive’ and ‘awake’ after an ice bath. This could also assist lower our perception of DOMS and RPE. 💪

10. Last but not the least, ANALGESIA. This leads to physiological pain-relieving benefits.
The cold sensation can activate our thermal nerve cells. However, it can reduce nerve conduction rates and excitability.
This can actually inhibit communication between our heat nerve cells and the sympathetic nervous system, resulting in less reported pain. 🏃‍♂️
