Infrared saunas produce the same type of infrared heat produced by the sun. This infrared heat is required for all living organisms for optimal health.
Unlike more traditional saunas, which heats the air around your body using steam which then has to heat your skin, then your underlying soft tissue and hopefully reach your body core, infrared saunas use infrared lamps to warm your body directly, penetrating about 1 -2 inches.
This then provides the same benefits to your body but at a more comfortable lower temperature allowing for you to enjoy the benefits for a longer more tolerable period of time. Infrared saunas create dry heat, whilst steam saunas create a moist heat.

Ice baths and hot/cold water immersion therapy has been around for many years and what was once regarded for only the most elite of athletes, is now easily accessible and popular for all.
The experience consists of alternating between ice baths and hot showers for roughly 10-12 minutes.
The evidence suggests that the rapid opening and closing of blood vessels known as vasodilation (through heat) and vasoconstriction (through cold) creates a pump effect and stimulates blood flow, removing metabolites, repairing the exercise muscle and slowing the metabolic process down.
benefits of ice baths
✅ Reduce odema
✅ Decrease muscle soreness
✅ Decrease the perception of fatigue
✅ Alter localised blood flow
✅ Alter localised tissue and core temp
✅ Alter heart rate
✅ Reduce muscle spasms
✅ Reduce muscle damage.
Normatec boots are also known as compression boots and have been used by elite athletes to recover from training and performing their sport.
Wrapping around your foot and traveling up your leg to your upper thigh, Normatec compression boots inflate and deflate in a segmental action.
This process of segmented compression mimics the natural muscle pump and blood flow from your feet back up to your more central areas of filtration in doing so removing lactic acid and other waste products.
benefits of compression boots
✅ Improve circulation
✅ Enhance lymphatic drainage
✅ Remove waste products like lactic acid
✅ Decrease recovery time
✅ Allow you to train harder quicker
✅ Help relax and unwind
✅ Increase flexibility
✅ Increase joint range of motion.
