Let’s face it, diving into cold water is never fun. But cold water has so much to offer! That’s why hydrotherapy always includes a source of cold water to complete the experience.
Ideal to start the day, the cold water stimulates the body and acts as a “booster” to tone the body. Good blood circulation is vital for overall cardiovascular health.
What does it mean exactly for your body?
When you immerse yourself in cold water, the blood rushes to surround your vital organs. The heart is forced to pump more efficiently, pushing blood through all your vessels. If you start this on a routine basis (30 sec every day), you could notice a difference in your body for sure.
When we have heavy legs, the return of blood to the heart sometimes hurts and can be painful.
Plunge your legs into cold water for a few seconds, it will help!
How to do it right at home?
