Resilience and Energy: The Power of Coldwater Therapy

Something about the frigid, icy cold shocks the senses, jolts us awake, and sends adrenaline surging through our veins. As uncomfortable as it sounds, more and more people are willingly immersing themselves in icy waters as a form of therapy. Welcome to the paradigm-shifting world of cold water therapy!

Cold water therapy, also referred to as cold exposure, cold showers, or ice baths, involves incorporating cold temperature exposure into your routine for its numerous reported health benefits. But before we dive deeper into the chilling depths of this therapy, remember to consult with your healthcare provider first, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.

The Science behind Coldwater Therapy

Research indicates that regular exposure to cold water can lead to higher levels of white blood cells and an increased metabolic rate, meaning your body burns fat more effectively. Your body becomes a well-oiled machine, functioning at optimal capacity with more ease and grace1. This leads to an increased sense of energy, well-being, and an overall healthier lifestyle.

How to Incorporate Coldwater Therapy Into Your Routine

  1. Cold Showers: The simplest way to start cold water therapy is by gradually introducing it into your shower routine. Begin with a warm shower, then gradually turn the temperature down for the last few minutes.
  2. Cold Plunges: More adventurous souls can try plunge pools or natural bodies of water like a river or lake.
  3. Whole Body Cryotherapy: This form of therapy involves exposing yourself to extremely cold temperatures (-200 to -300 degrees Fahrenheit) for two to four minutes in a controlled setting.

Cold Water Therapy Precautions

While the benefits are compelling, remember, safety comes first. Never attempt cold immersion alone, especially in an isolated location. Always listen to your body and its responses. Start slowly and build up your cold exposure time gradually.2
