So, most people now know that it is beneficial to have an ice bath by submerging yourself into a tub of ice cubes, which is meant to be good for you!
Ice baths are typically used by athletes or by individuals looking to manage their mind-over-matter in their lives. An athlete often uses an ice bath after an event or as part of their training program and ice bath therapy is when the body is submerged completely in a bathtub full of ice.
Ice baths can reduce inflammation and boost the central nervous system, improving the ability to react to stress, creating a better mood in individuals, and improving sleep quality. In the three minutes you sit in the ice bath, the things that felt bad don’t feel so bad anymore.
This is all the rage right now, and you can find them available in many places across Dubai, so where are the best places to go and get one?
