WHEN YOU TRAIN LIKE AN ATHLETE, YOU NEED TO RECOVER LIKE AN ATHLETE.
Recovery is an integral part of every athlete’s sports performance, and this is especially true at the elite training level at Tone House. Recovery is not just for injured athletes.
Designed specifically for the Tone House athlete, our goal through these programs is to establish recovery as an integral part of our athletes’ training regimens in order to reach peak performance on and off the Turf and optimal levels of health and activity.
Whether you’re looking to manage repetitive physical stress from training, prevent injury, or improve/enhance overall performance, our RECOVERY programs are designed to get you to those goals.

Graston technique is a form of soft tissue mobilization or myofascial release that utilizes specially-designed hand held instruments to go beyond what we can normally treat with our hands. The instruments allow a deeper, more focused treatment, intended to break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions that develop in muscle tissues over time. Graston is used to treat a variety of muscle strains, joint sprains and overuse injuries, with the goal of increasing flexibility and function in the treatment area. Graston technique and other forms of it are used by professional sports teams, endurance athletes and strength trainers across the globe to optimize muscle recovery and performance.

NORMATEC PULSE SYSTEMS
THE NORMATEC PULSE RECOVERY SYSTEM
Get fresh legs faster. NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery— the system gives a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Boots are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab, using NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between training sessions and after performance. For more information, visit www.normatecrecovery.com.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
The system uses compressed air to massage your legs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with the patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use the system, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your legs.
HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
30-minute sessions are offered to help you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation. Sessions can be done pre or post-workout.
*NORMATEC BOOTS are available at select Tone House locations.

COLD TUB THERAPY
WHAT IS COLD TUB THERAPY AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Soaking in a cold tub can make a big difference in the way your body recovers. After training, your body builds up lactic acid, and too much lactic acid build-up can decrease overall muscle function and can often lead to fatigue. A cold tub soak will immediately reduce swelling while flushing lactic acid out of your body. Once you get out of the tub, your muscle tissue warms back up and causes a return of oxygenated blood to help your muscles recover.
HOW LONG & HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SIT IN THE TUB?
We recommend 5-minute sessions to start. From there you can build up to 10 minutes. However, longer than 15 minutes is not recommended. You can soak in the tub as often as after every training session if you’d like – with the keyword being after.
WHAT DO I WEAR IN THE TUB?
Swimsuits, sports bras, shorts, swim trunks are all acceptable. We ask that you rinse in the shower before entering the tub and please do not wear the sweaty items of clothing from your workout into the tub.
