Improve Sleep Quality

…like a baby!

Recovery Science offers services that are safe and natural and very effective in helping to improve sleep quality

Are you looking for safe, natural alternatives to improve sleep quality?
Sleep is a vital part of recovery for physical and mental health. Poor sleep quality has been linked with not only poor athletic performance but an increased risk in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, obesity, and other health factors. In fact, without sleep, mental capacities are reduced, and illness can ensue as the immune system becomes depleted. Unfortunately, contemporary living does not support deep, quality sleep, and there are many factors in the external environment that reduce our ability to achieve quality sleep.

While a good sleep holds some great benefits, a lack of sleep can decrease muscle, nervous system, and cognitive function. While many sleep-prohibitive influences are beyond the individual’s control, it is possible to enlist the aid of a few tools to reinforce a restful night’s sleep.
What services does Recovery Science offer that can improve sleep quality?
The services at Recovery Science can lend a helping hand at improving sleep quality. All the services on offer can help reduce pain through different mechanisms which alone can help improve sleep quality, but they can also help in other ways.

Improve your sleep quality with a session in our Infrared Sauna or Immersion in our Contrast Water Therapy (Ice/Hot Bath) It sounds like science fiction, but the extreme cold during a contrast water therapy session incites your body to release adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins all the “feel good stuff” your body releases during exercise, relaxation, or for pain relief. And because these endorphins make us feel good, they can have a positive impact on your mood. The cold water can have a positive effect on the central nervous system, “which helps you sleep and feel better. A recent study also found that slow-wave sleep (deepest sleep) was enhanced after performing cold water immersion.

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that prompts your body to feel tired and sleepy, making the onset of sleep faster and the depth or sleep greater. While warm bathing might cause a slight melatonin spike, ice bathing causes an even greater one.
Infrared Sauna therapy
Infrared Sauna therapy has long been used as a relaxation tool and can assist with sleeping. A review on studies that examined sauna therapy found that people who utilised sauna bathing (4-6 week period) had more sleep hours than those who did not. Neural network relaxation was also shown to occur after sauna bathing. Infrared sauna specifically has been shown to have a sleep enhancing effect by increasing slow wave sleep significantly. Infrared light also is closely related to red light which has been shown to increase melatonin production and thus aid in increasing sleep quality.

Sauna also releases norepinephrine in the brain. This results in enhanced mood, improved cerebral blood flow and the reduction of anxiety and depressive symptoms.
