This FAQ guide will help you discover how a Chilly GOAT Cold Tub can energize your wellness and recovery routine.
Cold water immersion therapy is a technique that involves immersing the body in cold water for a short period of time. This therapy is often used by athletes to help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation after a strenuous workout or competition. The therapy works by reducing the temperature of the body's surface tissues, which in turn decreases blood flow to the area. This decrease in blood flow helps to reduce inflammation and swelling, and can also help to decrease pain and soreness.
Cold water immersion therapy can be beneficial for a variety of people, including athletes, people with certain medical conditions, and those looking to improve their overall health and wellness.
Athletes, in particular, often use cold water immersion therapy to help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation after intense workouts or competitions. This therapy can also help improve recovery time and decrease the risk of injury.
People with certain medical conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, may also benefit from cold water immersion therapy. Cold water can help reduce inflammation and pain in the affected areas, providing relief for these conditions.
In addition, cold water immersion therapy has been shown to have positive effects on overall health and wellness. It can help improve circulation, boost the immune system, and increase energy levels. It may also be effective in reducing stress and anxiety.
The duration of time that someone should stay in an ice bath can vary depending on the individual's tolerance and the purpose of the cold water immersion. Generally, it is recommended to stay in a cold water immersion for 5-15 minutes.
If the purpose of the cold water therapy is to reduce muscle soreness and inflammation after intense exercise, a shorter duration of 5-10 minutes may be sufficient. This can help to decrease inflammation and promote recovery without overexposing the body to cold temperatures.
If the purpose of the cold water therapy is to help with injury recovery or to enhance performance, a longer duration of up to 15 minutes may be appropriate. However, it is important to listen to your body and gradually increase the duration of the ice bath over time.
Please note: While cold water immersion can be beneficial for most individuals, but it is important to be aware that it can impact circulation, heart rate, and blood pressure. If you have an underlying health condition related to any of these areas, seek medical advice before exposing your body to cold water.
Prolonged exposure to cold water should be avoided. Always seek the advice of your physician or another qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
If you are new to cold water therapy, ease into the practice. Start with warmer water and shorter durations of exposure. As you adapt, be cautious when lowering the temperature or extending the duration of your cold soaks. Avoid deliberate hyperventilation before and during cold water immersion.
You can set the water temperature between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. You can easily use a smart app to set the water to your specific cold water protocol.
There are three things to consider when choosing a location for your cold tub: accessibility, structural support, and electricity.
When it comes to installing your Chilly GOAT Cold Tub, you have the flexibility to choose between outdoor or indoor installation. The best location will be one that invites you to incorporate the cold tub into your regular routine.
An outdoor installation can provide a unique and refreshing experience. On the other hand, you can place it in a garage, fitness room, or other space. Just be sure to make sure the space has proper ventilation.
The location for your tub should be a flat, level surface that can support that weight of the cold tub.
By considering factors such as location accessibility, structural support, and compliance with local regulations, you can make an informed decision on where to install your cold plunge tub to create a relaxing and enjoyable experience for you and your users. If you have any questions or concerns, it's always recommended to consult with a professional to ensure a smooth and safe installation process.
The Alpine models will require a 120V/15 Amp GFCI dedicated outlet.
The Valaris contrast therapy tub requires a 240V/50-amp GFCI connection. Master Spas recommends that you work with a licensed electrician to hook-up the electrical to your Valaris. Consider scheduling your electrician to arrive the day after delivery, as the chiller needs 24 hours to rest before set up.
