Contrast therapy works on the concept of vasodilatation (which occurs in the heat) and vasoconstriction (which occurs in the cold). Combine the ice bath and hot bath as a sequence protocol, can create circulation to increase blood flow for powerful recovery and other health benefits. Our contrast ice bath and hot bath temperatures are closely monitored for maximum benefits that have been scientifically proven for effectiveness.
With hot water immersion pretty much the opposite happens. Cardiac output and heart rate increases and blood vessels vasodilate (widen), blood also flows closer to the surface of the skin. As a result, cellular, lymphatic and capillary vessels widen and permeability is increased. Increased permeability increases nutrient delivery and waste removal from the cells which can increase healing. Other proposed benefits of thermotherapy include increased muscle elasticity, joint mobility and again a reduction in pain perception and muscle tension.
There are many and varied benefits of both ice bath and hot bath or contrast water therapy which include;
