Walnut Valley Outpost is home to the area's only NormaTec Recovery System. NormaTec is more than just an amazing leg massage, it's backed by science to increase circulation, reduce soreness and help athletes perform their best each and every day.
Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). This patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction.
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 back-flow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
We're not going to make any wild health proclamations about the sauna, but you're free to google them yourself. We will say that if the sauna contributes to your overall health and well-being by helping you relax, loosening up stiff or tight muscles, reducing joint pain, or just giving you some much needed times to yourself... we're here for it!
Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don't heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps to warm your body directly. This means that an infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature (usually between 120 - 140) than a traditional sauna, which is typically between 150 - 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Typically this lower temperature allows for a more enjoyable and longer sauna experience.
While we haven't seen any reports of negative effects so far, we don't want to take any chances with your health and safety. There are cautions about any sauna experience. This includes the possibility of overheating, dehydrating, interference with medication, as well as potential danger for those who are pregnant, have heart disease, or are under the influence of drugs/ alcohol, among others. If you have any health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or under medical care, get cleared by your doctor before your first session.
