Rest and RECOVER

When we think about fitness and exercise, running hard, lifting heavy and burning more calories comes to mind.

HEART RATE VARIABILITY MONITORING

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive electrocardiographic method that can be used to measure your body’s adaption to stress. HRV measures the variation in length of time between each heartbeat (interbeat intervals), and these variations are controlled by your autonomic nervous system (ANS).

HRV can be an useful biomarker in managing training loads, injury prevention, and identifying physical and emotional stressors to your overall well-being.

Your HRV is measured daily for a week in the mornings until a baseline is achieved and using these values, our clinical and training team will develop training versus rest days in order to manage your training loads and prevent fatigue and injury. We have developed protocols and are continuing to research this exciting biomarker in our research lab.

Normatec Compression Pants

Normatic PULSE employs three key biomimcry techniques to increase circulation, accelerate soft tissue healing and maximize your recovery.

A. PULSING

NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing) to mimic the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.

B. DISTAL RELEASE

NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing) to mimic the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.

C. GRADIENTS

Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow.

Normatec Compression Pants

PRE WORKOUT

Using normatec for 15-20 minutes at medium intensity prior to workout increase circulation, reduces muscle stiffness and enhances muscle performance

PAST WORKOUT

20-60 minutes of medium to high intensity Normatec treatment after a workout increases circulation, reduces blood lactate levels and decreases muscle fatigue for a faster recovery

Intravenous Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy is a simple treatment that delivers fluids directly into your bloodstream through a small IV inserted into your arm.   The fluids may also include vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants and even medications in the mix that will depend on why you’re getting the treatment.  Hydration therapy can be used for a number of reasons such as migraines, jetlag, athletic recovery, and even for hangovers and at ECA Wellness, we offer a variety of infusions from lactated ringers and Myer’s cocktail to a Recover and Recharge formulation.  Hydration therapy only takes about 30 to 45 minutes and is overseen and administered by a licensed medical professional.  The only discomfort you may feel is a slight pinch when the IV needle is inserted.

1. Myer’s Cocktail:

Vitamin C, Magnesium Chloride, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B12, Glutathione

Myers Cocktail is the perfect IV infusion to alleviate chronic symptoms like inflammation, muscle pain, fatigue and stress. With a precise blend of multivitamins and hydration this infusion also helps increase immune support, alleviate anxiety, migraines and muscle cramps.

2. Athletic Performance and Recovery:

Arginine, B-Complex, Zinc, Glutathione

This concentrated dose of amino acids, electrolytes, and multi-vitamins supports the  rebuilding, maintenance, and hydration of your muscles, enhancing endurance and recovery.   Rehydrate, rebuild, and recoup energy! Quickly extinguish soreness and    fatigue from intense athletic events of any kind.

3. Health and Wellness

Vitamin C, Meyers Base (with Biotin), B-Complex, Glutathione

This formula is designed to detoxify your body and rejuvenate your body from the inside out.  Glutathione is a potent, naturally occurring intracellular antioxidant plays a role in  many chemical reactions in your body. It also helps detoxify chemicals, including some that your body creates naturally, as well as pollutants and drugs.

4. Vitamin C Boost:

Make your skin glow and balance your immune system to fight colds, flu, stress and low energy. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient essential for growth and repair of all the tissues in your body. Research has shown that vitamin C is essential for the function of neutrophils, a type of immune cell that aids in fighting infection.

ZERO GRAVITY CHAIRS

Zero gravity chairs position your body to make your feel weightless, stress-free and energized. This works by elevating your feet to be at the same level as your heart.

Zero gravity chairs position your body to make your feel weightless, stress-free and energized. This works by elevating your feet to be at the same level as your heart. When you achieve this position, you minimize the toll that gravity takes on your body everyday.

Gravity puts your body under a tremendous amount of stress every day and zero gravity chairs help you offset these effects and feel what its like to be stress-free. At ECA Wellness, we combine the Human Touch Zero Gravity Chair with Normatec Compression Pants to encourage increased blood flow and aid in recovery of post-workout routines.

Meditation with EEG Monitoring

Meditation has been theorized to have an effect on increasing heart rate variability (HRV) by increasing parasympathetic tone.

While this is all theory at the moment, we believe meditation is a key tool in how you rest and recover; hence our interest and research is focused in this area.

By monitoring HRV and your brain waves through electroencephalograhy (EEG), we can provide biofeedback to see how meditation is affecting your recovery. We place you in a zero gravity and connect you to an EEG headband and HRV monitor. Audio signals will guide you through your meditation session, enabling you to focus especially during moments when your mind wanders and give you direct biofeedback on your session.
