Bodyscape Health Club features a sauna, steam room and bubble spa, perfect to help you unwind after a hard workout, a stressful day or to start your day with a positive mental attitude. Post exercise muscles are in need of relaxation to promote quick and healthy recovery. The heat from the sauna or steam room causes the body to release endorphins that reduce the feeling of stress on the body
The application of cold triggers three basic reactions.
Firstly, at a cellular level, the metabolic response of the cells is reduced, so the cells need less oxygen to function and thereby suffer less hypoxic injury.
Secondly, the permeability of the blood vessel walls is decreased, thus reducing the amount of fluid that accumulates in the injured area.
And thirdly, the cold numbs the area to a certain degree, acting as a topical analgesic.
One of the best things about cold is that it does not override the beneficial effects of the body’s natural healing process.
