The Medical Benefits of Cold Plunge Therapy Explained

Improve Circulation
Frozen is an effective way to promote healthier circulation and overall well-being. When you take a dip in a cold plunge tub, your body is subjected to a rapid change in temperature that causes the blood vessels to constrict, pushing the blood towards the vital organs and increasing the heart rate.

This shock response floods the body with oxygen and nutrients, reviving and replenishing the organs with energy. The improved blood flow is then sustained throughout the day, contributing to a healthier circulatory system. With regular cold plunge sessions, you can expect to experience profound long-term benefits.

Reduce inflammation
Cold plunges reduce inflammation in the body causing constricting the blood vessels. This reduces the flow of blood to any area that is experiencing pain or discomfort, like a sports injury, which helps to decrease swelling and inflammation. Frozen is a great way to naturally help your body heal and stay healthy!

Boost immune Function
Taking a plunge into cold water can be an incredible boost to your health. It activates the white blood cells that are responsible for fighting off sickness, and it also causes the lymphatic system to contract—pushing fluids through the lymph nodes. This process helps detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system. Studies have shown that cold plunges can reduce upper respiratory tract infections significantly.

Specific Health Benefits of Cold Plunges

Reduce inflammation
Studies have shown that cold water immersion can be highly effective at reducing the effects of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) after intense physical activity. This is the sore and painful feeling in your muscles after you have done intense exercise.

This effect is likely due to its natural pain-relieving properties. Cold plunging is a great way for athletes and fitness fanatics alike to give their bodies the relief they need after an intense workout session.

Increase Alertness and Energy
A cold plunge bath can provide a quick pick-me-up and can help you be more energized, while regular use can deliver long-term effects. When you take a cold plunge bath, you’ll experience immediate increases in alertness and energy, improved mood, reduced inflammation and soreness.

In the long run, regular cold plunging can help you get focused, and decrease stress and anxiety.

Improve Skin and Hair Health
Taking a cold plunge in a cold tub can provide numerous benefits for skin and hair health. Cold water helps to close your pores, protecting against dirt and bacteria from entering the skin, reducing inflammation and redness, and boosting circulation which leaves your skin with a radiant glow.

Not only does the cold water help with the skin, but it can also leave your hair looking shinier and healthier too. If you’re searching for more reasons to turn down the heat in the shower, this is a great one – softer skin and vibrant looks await!

What are Cold Plunges Good For?

Post-Workout Recovery
By taking a cold plunge tub within two hours of finishing your workout, you can experience a number of important benefits. When done correctly, cold plunges can help flush away lactic acid build-up, reduce inflammation, and promote better circulation throughout the body.

These effects can lead to quicker recovery times. Additionally, because cold plunges are known to stimulate endorphin production in your brain, they can also help to improve your mood after a challenging workout.

Stress Relief
Cold plunging is a great way to reduce stress. By exposing yourself to the controlled shock of cold water on a regular basis, your body gradually gets used to it and develops a resilience towards it. This adaptation also extends to other sources of stress, as cold plunging helps reduce cortisol levels – the hormone that is released when you’re under stress. Repeated cold water plunging can help your body develop a stronger reaction to and better handle all kinds of stress.

Introducing Frozen - the world's first Medical Cold Plunge

We noticed a problem: most cold plunges were designed by people without medical degrees. We believed there was a better approach. With Medical Saunas' team of 48 doctors and engineers, we collaborated to develop the ultimate medical cold plunge – one that would optimize and unlock the true medical potential of cold water therapy.

When we started Frozen™, our engineers aimed to do more than just develop another plunge. We wanted to make the best plunge for our friends and family, ensuring it would be safe for them to use. We dove headfirst into researching every cold plunge in existence. We read every negative review, scrutinized every comment, and examined all the issues to ensure our friends, family, and customers wouldn't encounter the same problems.

With a substantial investment from Medical Sauna, we began by buying and testing over 53 different cold plunges in the US. And we didn't stop there. Our relentless pursuit of perfection and our goal to develop the world's best medical cold plunge motivated us to seek more investment to buy and import over 112 cold plunges from all over the world, filling our testing facility to the brim. Due to the varying electrical requirements across the globe, we had to construct different electrical stations to test each country's plunge.

After extensive studying, testing, and analyzing numerous forums, we compiled a list of features for the perfect cold plunge. We prioritized practical additions, such as a timer to track how long you've been in the plunge without relying on a phone, which could fall into the water. We also sought numerous comforts that we needed every time we used the plunge, including water and weather-resistant spaces for robes, towels, phones, and watches. We aimed to add as many features as possible while staying true to our mission of optimizing its medical benefits.

Frozen™ didn't achieve success overnight.

Although cold plunges have gained popularity in recent years, we refused to settle for just any design. It took 2.5 years of 14-hour days, six days a week, and more than 23 prototypes before we engineered a model that received the unanimous approval of all 48 medical professionals on our team.

We hope you love Frozen™ as much as we do.
