Recovery may not be one of the first thoughts in mind when you think of Planet Beach spray and spa, but let me just say that it certainly should be!
The Planet Beach CEO and creator of HOTWORX, recently wrote a great blog outlining the recovery benefits as it pertains to our HOTWORX infrared workout sessions. “It is safe to say that you probably have never seen or read about a workout that is described as a “recovery workout”. Rather, it is more likely that you have heard those words used individually such as “recovery” from a “workout”. The conventional wisdom would say that you need to recover from a tough workout by going to the sauna after training. But conventional wisdom never factors in quality of life advancements based on innovation.” Smith says. “Why not recover from your workout WHILE you are working out?! It is now possible. The recovery workout was inspired through unconventional wisdom, from the fitness road less travelled if you will, all in the effort to achieve stand out results rather than to blend in with less effective old school workout methods of the past.” He then goes on to explain the HOTWORX 3D Training Method which uses (1) heat, (2) infrared energy and (3) exercise to deliver more than just another workout. The combination of heat and infrared energy creates a major boost to your metabolism while you workout, and this acceleration of the circulatory system and cellular activity causes your body to respond quickly to repair the muscle damage from working out during the workout itself. “Conventional workout programs waste precious time. Why not workout in an infrared sauna and kill two birds with one stone? The workout and the recovery can happen simultaneously. We call this MORE WORKOUT, LESS TIME!” he states.
As if that’s not enough, HOTWORX isn’t our only service that can be utilized in the recovery process. When it comes to a speedy recovery, massage increases the blood flow and oxygen in your muscles and may decrease lactic acid build-up, which is widely considered the first sign of muscle soreness! Researchers also say that UV exposure leads to the release of chemicals in the brain called endorphins that are linked to both pain relief and euphoric feelings. Treatment with red light therapy has also been shown to reduce the inflammatory response from trauma to muscles, which helps reduce recovery time from sports injuries. Red light stimulates cellular repair and regeneration which leads to a more relaxed inflammatory response.
Needless to say you can save time and money with Planet Beach as your recovery center. Let Planet Beach be your one stop shop to relax, glow, renew, and recover! Click here to find a location near you!
