The science behind Hot+Cold
It all relies on our blood vessels naturally widening and narrowing to help keep the body at a healthy equilibrium.
The perfect equation to #GetYOUBackToNature
By combining the effects of vasoconstriction and vasodilation, our overall blood circulation is improved, giving us a boost in energy and strengthening our immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells.
A natural antidepressant. Cold stimulates the brain’s “blue spot”, the main source of noradrenaline, a neurotransmitter implicated in anxiety and depression.
The combination of hot and cold flushes our body of toxins and increases blood flow to the tissues naturally, helping rebuild broken down muscles from exercise.
Promotes weight loss and increases metabolism
Improves lymphatic movement
Helps skin and hair health
Increases hormone production
Reduced post-exercise muscle soreness
Increased energy and alertness
Blood Vessels Open
When exposed to heat, our blood vessels widen and dilate allowing for Vasodilation to occur. In this state of heat, blood flow increases toward body tissues in response to their need for more oxygen. Blood flows easier through your vessels, meaning one’s heart does not have to pump as hard which in turn, helps to lower blood pressure.
Blood Vessels at Work
Next, when the body is exposed to cold temperature, Vasoconstriction occurs. Here, the blood vessels narrow since the smooth muscles in the blood vessel walls tighten. As a result, blood flow toward vital organs is at a higher pressure to keep them warm. Vasoconstriction controls how blood is distributed through the body, stabilizes blood pressure, protects the body against blood and fluid loss, and reduces loss of body heat in cold temperatures.
Blood Vessels at Equilibrium
The optimal state to finish it off with. You will feel the effects of the HOT+COLD+Halotherapy cycle. Allow your body to restore itself to its original state, where body temperature and blood circulation return to a healthy balance. Breath in, Breath out, recover, and simply relax as you complete your Halotherapy journey…
