We offer evidence-based services to improve the health of your mind and body.
It’s well known that exercise creates mild stress that makes us healthier and happier. In a similar way heat, cold, and red/NIR Light create mild stress that helps make us physically stronger and mentally calmer.
We offer a personal traditional Sauna for heat stress. Heat stress is an exercise mimicking activity with many health benefits.
Benefits of Sauna Bathing
- Improved endurance
- Faster injury recovery
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved weight loss
- Robust positive effects on the brain
- Stress relief
- Increased lifespan
“Sauna bathing is associated with many health benefits, from cardiovascular and mental health to fertility and athletic endurance. It is generally considered safe for healthy adults and may be safe for special populations with appropriate medical supervision. Heat stress via sauna use elicits hormetic responses driven by molecular mechanisms that protect the body from damage, similar to those elicited by moderate- to vigorous-intensity exercise, and may offer a means to forestall the effects of aging.” –Rhonda Patrick
About our Sauna
We chose a traditional sauna over an infrared for a simple reason. The traditional sauna gets much hotter ~185’-195’ vs infrared ~140’. The hotter temperatures mean more dose in less time.
Cold Water Immersion Therapy
We offer commercial-grade ice plunge capable of 32’ for cold stress. Cold stress is an exercise mimicking activity with many health benefits.
Benefits of Cold Water Immersion Therapy
- Boost immune strength
- Promote weight loss
- Enhance cellular energy
- Regulate autoimmune disorders
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved psychological resilience for stress management
- Faster injury recovery
“The more voluntary suffering you build into your life, the less involuntary suffering will affect your life.” – Tim Ferris
Beyond the amazing physical benefits of cold water immersion are the improvements in mental calmness and resilience. Humans are hard-wired to avoid discomfort. By actively pursuing discomfort we can reprogram our subconscious to be able to handle mental stress with more resilience and intention. By leaning into the cold we become present to our breath and that presence is the doorway to a happier and healthier life.
About our Cold Water Plunge
We chose the Morzko Forge Prism commercial ice plunge for a simple reason. The Prism is the only commercially available cold water immersion tub that can chill water to 32’ and create ice. The colder temperature means more dose in less time.
Cold Water immersion vs Cryotherapy
The effectiveness of cold stress is directly correlated to the ability to lower your body temperature. Ice and water conduct heat from your body faster than air. The dose available in cold water immersion is much higher than available from cryotherapy. Cryotherapy exposure times are limited to 3 minutes or so due to frostbite potential.
Red/NIR Light Therapy
We offer front and rear Red/NIR Light Therapy allowing full body coverage in a 10 minute treatment. Red/NIR Light Therapy works in two ways.
- Red/NIR light penetrates up to 2 inches in the body to stimulate improved cellular energy leading to numerous benefits.
- Red/NIR light acts as an exercise mimicking activity promoting a higher anti-inflammatory response.
Benefits of Red/NIR Light Therapy also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy and Photobiomodulation backed by over 2000 peer-reviewed studies
- Anti-aging effects on the skin
- Combat neurological disease
- Fight depression and anxiety
- Increased fat loss
- Speed recovery from exercise and endurance
- Fight hair loss
- Speed healing from injury
- Improved sleep
“The human body needs light to be healthy” – Ari Whitten
“Many modern humans are deficient in the benefits of Red/NIR light due to lack of exposure to the sun” – Ari Whitten
About our Red/NIR lights
We chose full body length, width, front and back Platinum LED BioMax 900 lights due to the highest comparable light output allowing for the full dose to the entire body within a 10-minute treatment. This means you get the highest dose in the least time.
We offer Therabody pneumatic compression therapy to improve recovery with improved circulation.
Reducing soreness and fatigue start with circulation-the more efficiently you flush out waste and return fresh, oxygenated blood to any area, the faster you’ll recover and get back to doing what you love. Like a sponge, RecoveryAir expedites this repetitive cycle of compression and release.
Benefits of Compression Therapy
- Boost circulation
- Reduces delayed onset muscle soreness
- Decreases swelling and stiffness
- Relieves muscle fatigue
About our Pneumatic Compression Therapy
We chose Therabody RecoveryAir pro due to its ability to fully inflate and deflate up to 3 times faster than other products. You get more recovery cycles in less time.
