Cold Water Therapy

How much would we have to pay you to jump into a freezing cold lake or ice bath? Our guess is that for most of you, especially as now the weather has cooled off, the answer to that question is a hell of a lot. The topic of this week’s blog post is Cold Water Therapy, a topic very close to some members of the CPRESS team’s hearts, and as you know we like to write about things that drive us but that provide you, dear reader, with some really useful information.

Seasonal Change Sickness

Are you ill? Do you know someone that is? Chances are the answer is yes – there’s a lot of it going around and sometimes it seems impossible to escape even if you’re usually a healthy person that exercises regularly, eats well, and looks after themselves. Well, don’t beat yourself up, the change in season can be a tough time for even the fittest person out there. We’ve had a few cooler days and nights, and now we seem to be back to sunshine every other day; it’s a lot for the body to handle and the ups and downs...
