The Cold Plunge
Bring along your swimwear to the Boston Run Show for a cold plunge!
Heat & cold exposure play a crucial role in injury recovery, tissue repair, and bolstering the immune system against seasonal illnesses. It helps reduce inflammation and speeds up the healing process. Regular heat & cold exposure have been linked to an improved immune response, making the body more resilient to common seasonal illnesses such as colds and flu, reducing their frequency and severity.
Cold plunging is a powerful tool for boosting energy levels and enhancing overall well-being. When exposed to cold, the body releases dopamine, the “feel-good” neurotransmitter, leading to increased alertness and a sense of vitality. Cold exposure encourages deep breathing, which can enhance blood oxygenation, improving cognitive function and energy levels.
