Ice Baths

 

Submerging your body into cold water (10 degree ice bath), your body will naturally respond to this change in temperature by constricting the blood flow to our extremities and redirect blood to the ‘core’ of our body where the vital organs, promoting a higher turn over of blood in through our major organs which assists with removing waste products faster. After the cold exposure, blood flow resumes to the extremities, replenishing these tissues with the return of blood which has been filtered of toxins.
