MVEMENT’s mission is to create total wellness in mind, body and community with an emphasis on a variety of fitness disciplines and recovery components.
Recovery & Performance is just as vital in our health journey as fitness which is why MVEMENT is equipped with two medical grade, full spectrum infrared saunas with chromotherapy, three cold tubs for ice bath plunges and coming soon a Normatec Full Body Compression.
Medical Grade, Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas: Infrared light is a form of alternative and holistic health therapy with more and more research available every day. Infrared comes in 3 distinct types. Because it’s on a spectrum, infrared has a range of waves in its own category. The 3 types are based on wave size, frequency, and the amount of energy they carry: near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR). Though tiny pinpoint-size waves, each infrared ray does something beautifully unique for our bodies, and nature. Infrared’s healing rays are felt on our skin as warmth, and are absorbed by our bodies to help them detoxify, relax, improve circulation, recover faster, sleep better, age well and help us feel good. The proof of this activity in our body is evidenced in the increase in core body temperature that happens during a 30-minute infrared sauna session.
Ice Baths: Cold water immersion helps activate your body’s natural healing ability, which relieves the symptoms of various medical conditions, like inflammation, as it reduces muscle soreness—providing fast recovery. Ice baths are just as they sound – a bathtub full of ice and freezing water. They are a great way to heal injuries and muscles, making them popular amongst endurance trainers and athletes. If you have suffered an injury or feel as though areas of your body are sore or strained, an ice bath is recommended. Ice baths help muscle tissue repair itself and remove lactic acid from the body – the main culprit of muscle fatigue.
Normatec 3: Warm-up and recover like never before. Normatec’s compression therapy increases circulation and helps you maintain your full range of motion, leaving you fresh and limber. Normatec is like the best massage of your life. It’s proven to help with lymphatic drainage, and decrease pain and soreness so you never have to let DOMS cramp your style.
