Benefits

The benefits of a cold plunge hit you almost instantly. Known for an array of advantages in your health journey, cold plunging will support everything from your mind to your muscles. Make plunging a great addition to your overall health and wellness routine.

Many people turn to cold plunging for a unique way to boost their daily energy. Take a cold plunge to kick off your morning or gain momentum for the afternoon. Cold causes the levels of norepinephrine and adrenaline hormones to stay high for hours after exposure and will effectively elevate energy and focus.

Cold plunges stimulate leukocytes, the white blood cells that help fight off sicknesses. It also causes the lymphatic system to contract, forcing fluid through the lymph nodes. This process aids in detoxing the body and strengthening your immune system.

Cold plunge therapy can produce a feeling of calm, happiness, and well-being, which can alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety. Our bodies respond to cold water by increasing feel-good molecules like dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. But don’t just take our word for it. Try it yourself!

Cold water therapy is an effective supplemental treatment for stress relief by decreasing the stress hormone cortisol. A study found that regular cold plunges help reduce anxiety and improve the mood of participants.

One of the most common reasons people cold plunge is the way it speeds recovery from exercise by reducing temperature, blood flow and inflammation in tissues of the muscles. Cold plunges are a common practice among elite athletes because of their effectiveness in reducing muscle pain and soreness after training.

Cold plunging has shown the ability to increase your baseline dopamine. Dopamine is the molecule in your brain and body linked to your motivation. Dopamine enhances your depth of focus and lowers your threshold for taking action toward our specific goals.

Inflammation is a natural component of exercise, training, and recovery. But if you overdo it, excess inflammation can lead to an overuse injury. Cold plunges can help stop that process in its tracks. The end result: Less inflammation, reduced joint pain, and a lower risk of muscle soreness and injury.

When you dip into a cold plunge, your body triggers the autonomic nervous system. This system is a network of vessels and nerves split into two parts that control your stress response. When you begin to control your stress response, you’ll likely find that you start to control your relaxation and sleep.

What To Expect

A cold plunge is a unique mental and physical experience that some find challenging. Taking cold showers on the days leading up to your first plunge is a good idea. An optimal cold plunge time is between 1-5 minutes, but you can go longer if you’ve worked up to it. You’ll need to start slowly and build your extended time. When you’ve finished your plunge, rewarm your body in a relaxing, controlled environment.

What to Forget

Lofty Expectations

Cold plunging requires baby steps to reach your maximum level of cold tolerance. It’s okay to start at a warmer temperature and work your way down. It’s also common to start at 30 seconds to 1 minute and work your way up.

Stress & Pain

Cold plunges are a positive stress practice with great mental and physical health benefits. Your stress, muscles soreness, and joint pain will soon begin to disappear.
