When used properly, contrasting use of Hot and Cold Hydrotherapy is one of the most effective and beneficial recovery tools available.
COLD TUB THERAPY
Cold hydrotherapy has been proven to help with a number of ailments, chief among them is muscle soreness. When you submerge in cold water, the chilled water instantly numbs the nerves that surround your joints and muscles, causing the release of hormones and endorphins, which, acting as an analgesic, relieves inflammation and alleviates muscle strain and joint pain. Then, when you get out, your muscle tissue rewarms a flood of oxygenated blood, helping your muscles recover.

Next, hot tub therapy relaxes allows the vessels to relax, open up, and blood flow to return to the area. At the same time, buoyancy in water reduces body weight by 90%, which can reduce pressure on joints and inflammation while helping to put the mind at ease. The contrasting use of hot and cold hydrotherapy under the guidance of an expert like the ones at Kaizen can work wonders on your muscles.
