Immune Support: Cold underwater compression stimulates leukocytes, which are the white blood cells that help us fight off sicknesses. Cold water also causes the lymphatic system to contract, forcing fluid through the lymph nodes. This process aids in detoxing the body and strengthening your immune system.

Boosted Mood, momentum, enhanced recovery and performance: Coldtubs have shown the ability increase your baseline dopamine. Dopamine is the molecule in our brain and body that is linked to motivation. According to Dr. Andrew Huberman dopamine can enhance our depth of focus and lower our threshold for taking action towards our specific goals. Coldtub benefits extend beyond the mental and chemical aspects of your body too. Sports medicine has utilized cold water therapy for years, to help the active recovery of your muscles. Researchers have known for a while that it connects to our daily energy.
