Thank you to everyone who came out to our First Annual Polar Plunge Event at Vegas Stronger on January 18, 2024! We had an amazing time with the community, raising awareness, financial aid, and learning about cold therapy! We never settle for anything but the best for the people we help. That's why we're thrilled we hosted this year's plunge with Morozoko Ice Baths. The company creates personal cold immersion chambers that make their own ice and guarantee a rejuvenating experience. Here are some photos and videos from the event!
Cryotherapies, including ice water immersions, have been a long-standing form of treatment for various injuries over the years. Hippocrates and Plato even talked about the benefits of cold water on the body in Ancient Greece. Over the last 200 years, doctors have studied the effects of cold water on the mind and body. In 1842, the world's first "Water Cure" facility opened in Malvern, England, and Victorians used to flock from far and wide to plunge into the waters.
Now, cold water immersion is scientifically understood to raise mood-enhancing hormones and neurotransmitters that contribute to mental wellness. It may also improve circulation, lower inflammation, and help build resilience. Learn more about the benefits of cold water immerson to mental health.
