Ice baths are becoming an increasingly popular part of the sports and wellness field and are being used for their many different benefits. Here are just a handful of the ways ice baths can benefit your health.

Can Help Speed Up Muscle Recovery

Ice baths can help improve muscle recovery by helping the body flush waste products and reducing swelling as well as tissue breakdown. With cold therapy, a large area of the musculature is treated as opposed to just as small area with the use of an ice bag.

Speed up Weight Loss

If you are looking to lose weight, ice baths may be able to help. The extreme cold makes our body’s work harder to heat themselves up and function normally. The body’s heating process helps give the metabolism a boost.

Improved the Look of Hair & Skin

Looking for a natural way to have more radiant and beautiful hair and skin? Ice baths may do the trick. Cold water helps to tighten pores in the skin as well as the scalp which helps to prevent them from getting clogged. This helps make skin look healthier and your hair look shinier!

Boost the Immune System & Improves Circulation

When cold water hits the body, it gets blood circulating which makes the arteries much more efficient at pumping blood which helps with overall heart health. It can also help lower blood pressure and give the immune system a boost.

Boost Mental Alertness

Although an ice bath may not seem like a very soothing option, it actually helps increase our oxygen intake and helps to give us a natural boost of energy for the day. We breath deeper in repose to the cold water shock to help keep our body’s warm, and it promotes a rush of blood throughout our entire body. This is where the energy boost comes from.

 

Cold Water Therapy Do’s & Don’ts

  • Be careful with the water temperature you use when you are just getting started.
  • Everyone will have his or her own cold threshold. Play within your personal comfort zone.
  • Don't overexpose! Spending too much time in water colder than 54 degrees Fahrenheit or 12 degrees Celsius could be dangerous. Do not spend more than 10 minutes in the cold water. Try starting with 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Don’t take a warm shower right after the ice bath. The cooling effects of slowly warming is ideal. You can consider using things like a bathrobe, blanket, or a cup of tea to help you warm up. If this still doesn’t help, you should then take a warm shower to warm yourself up.
