Below are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers.
Hyper cooled air causes the brain to send a vasoconstriction message to the body. When the body receives the message to vasoconstrict, blood is forced out of the peripherals (fingers, arms, toes, and legs). As blood is circulated from the extremities it removes pain causing inflammation, metabolites, and lactic. Blood is then moved into the core. During the vasoconstriction heart rate is elevated and blood is short looped through the lungs and filtering organs where it is hyper filtered, enriched, and oxygenated.
When the session concludes the brain quickly realizes that the cold temperature threat has passed. Within minutes the body vasodialtes and increases circulation of hyper-filtered, enriched, oxygen flushed blood into joints, muscles, and tissues. When joints, muscles, and tissues are met with nutrified, filtered, oxygen enriched blood, pain is mitigated and recovery times are sped. This it the unfair advantage of WBC versus an ice bath.
