Out with the old and in with the new!  Well, this actually is not a new philosophy and runs parallel to the philosophies of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.  The general gist is that icing for your injury is a huge ‘no-no’.  This brief article and video explain the healing process after injury and how icing is NOT beneficial and is actually counter productive, because it disrupts the natural healing rhythm of the body.  I know many of you have discussed whether to ice or heat at some point with me.  Usually heat prevails, and now we have a deeper understanding of why….

So, enjoy, educate yourselves and we can discuss it when I see you next… Oh, and know that I will never recommend ice again.
