HOW IT WORKS
We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest addition to om.life Wellness, the "Fire & Ice Room," a haven of rejuvenation that offers the perfect blend of relaxation and revitalization through the power of contrast therapy. This unique experience combines the healing benefits of an infrared sauna and a cold plunge, providing you with a holistic wellness journey like no other. Consider this as the start of a long term love relationship with cold, as once you start, you will quickly realize what you have been missing your whole life.
Contrast therapy, also known as hot-cold therapy, has been cherished for centuries for its profound effects on the body and mind. This therapeutic technique stimulates circulation, accelerates the body's natural detoxification process, stimulates the autonomic nervous system, and enhances overall well-being. Our Fire & Ice Room is meticulously designed to offer you incredible advantages and leave you feeling your absolute best!
"Cold exposure and contrast therapy can train the body to adapt to stress, boost the immune system, and improve overall well-being."
WIM HOF // THE ICEMAN
Contact with the cold water releases norepinephrine, which promotes the blood vessels to constrict.
Result: Blood vessels reopen as you exit the cold plunge, leading to improved circulation.
SHORT TERM VERSUS LONG TERM EFFECTS
Contact with the cold water releases norepinephrine, which leads to a fight-or-flight response.
Result: Continual exposure produces an oxidative stress reaction, resulting in a continual state of decreased cortisol.
Improved Circulation: The alternating hot and cold temperatures can promote blood vessel dilation (vasodilation) and constriction (vasoconstriction). This process is thought to enhance blood circulation, which can be beneficial for overall cardiovascular health.
Increased Calorie Burn: Contrast therapy can stimulate thermogenesis, which is the process of producing heat to maintain body temperature. This can lead to a temporary increase in calorie expenditure as your body works to warm itself.
Reduced Muscle Soreness: Contrast therapy is often used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts to help alleviate muscle soreness and aid in recovery. The hot-cold contrast can help flush out metabolic waste products and reduce muscle inflammation.
Pain Relief: Some individuals use contrast therapy to manage chronic pain conditions. The alternating temperatures can stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers, providing temporary pain relief.
Stress Reduction: The experience of moving between hot and cold temperatures can trigger a relaxation response in the body, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
Immune System Support: Contrast therapy is believed to stimulate the immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells and enhancing the body's ability to fight off infections.
Enhanced Recovery: Athletes and people recovering from injuries or surgeries may use contrast therapy to speed up the healing process and reduce swelling and inflammation.
Improved Skin Health: Alternating between hot and cold can help improve skin tone, promote healthy circulation to the skin, and even potentially reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Mental Alertness: The sudden changes in temperature can invigorate the nervous system, increasing mental alertness and cognitive function.
"Alternating between hot and cold temperatures in contrast therapy can stimulate circulation, improve blood flow to muscles, and aid in recovery after intense physical activity."
