What are the benefits of cold water exposure?

Reduced inflammation: Cold water immersion can help decrease inflammation in muscles and joints, aiding faster recovery from exercise or injury.

Improved circulation: Cold water causes blood vessels to constrict, which can improve circulation and promote overall cardiovascular health.

Enhanced recovery: Cold water therapy can accelerate muscle recovery by reducing muscle soreness and fatigue.

Increased mood and mental alertness: Norepinephrine, a hormone and neurotransmitter, is crucial in promoting wakefulness, alertness, and memory function. The shock of cold water can stimulate the nervous system, leading to increased alertness and mental clarity. With regular cold exposure, norepinephrine levels can increase by 200-300%, contributing to enhanced cognitive function and pain management. Furthermore, this exposure boosts dopamine by 250%, offering a natural surge of feel-good sensations.

Boosted immune system: Regular cold water therapy may strengthen the immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells.

Preparing for your ice bath.

1. Start at a sensible temperature.

Begin at about 15°C and gradually lower the temperature as you get used to the experience of the cold over time and repeated plunges.

2. Set an initial duration.

Start with 30 seconds to 2 minutes, then slowly increase your time to between 3 and 10 minutes, or even longer!

3. Familiarise yourself with breathing techniques.

Mastering effective breathing techniques can significantly enhance your cold plunge experience - they can help you stay calm, reduce the shock response, and make cold water immersion more manageable. These techniques are helpful not only for cold immersion but also for many other aspects of life.
