What is an alternative to this ‘Targeted Icing’? The answer is ‘Total Body Icing’. If you decide to jump into a freezing lake, that shall accomplish ‘Total Systemic Icing’ (TSI).
What does this accomplish other than being able to brag about how tough you are?
‘Total Systemic Icing’ (TSI) super cools your entire physiology. This puts a significant amount of systemic stress and thermal demand on your circulatory system and ambient temperature … even to a dangerous level. It is not all that far removed from a ‘Physical Stress Test’. What is the benefit? There may be very little net value. Be cautiously cogniscent and aware!
