Best Wellness Centers in Kentucky
A New Leaf Wellness Center2912 Tucker Rd, Louisville, KY 40299,
A New Leaf Wellness Center started out as a second-generation company. I, Amber Hutchison, am a second-generation Traditional Naturopath. Growing up in a household with my Mother as a Naturopathic Doctor, I learned the value of eating for health, valuing plants as nutritional support, & placing God as the Center of my Life & Health.
After graduating as a Licensed Massage Therapist, 2006, I followed my Mother and pursued an education as a Traditional Naturopath. During this time, I also met my amazing soon-to-be husband. In 2008 we were married.
Three years later, I received my Doctorate and opened my Wellness Center full time. Shortly after opening my office, my husband and I were blessed with our first daughter. We now have two beautiful girls and fur babies. My family and I enjoy hiking, camping, playing with our fur babies, and attending our home Church regularly.
My family and my career are both very important to me. This is why I have collaborated with the amazing ladies in my office. This allows me to balance both of my loves; helping others and my family. You can see their individual profiles on the Associates page.
I firmly believe Health & Wellness is a process. We all have our own journey with individual obstacles we must face. I feel my mission is to assist individuals with that journey in any way I am able. I look forward to meeting you soon & helping you with your journey!!

What is the difference between and Ice Bath and a Cold Plunge?
The difference between an ice bath and a cold plunge is that you typically don’t have to add ice to a cold plunge with a chiller unit.

With a cold plunge the chiller will circulate and filter the water so there will be less frequent draining and filling the tub.
What is the optimum temperature for an ice bath?
The optimum temperature really depends on the individual and the goals they may have. The standard temperature is 50-59 degrees F for at least 5-10 minutes. Although, high performance athletes may use colder temperatures between 42-50 degrees F with a duration of 3-6 minutes.

Is an ice bath better than a cold shower?
Although there is value to taking a cold shower every now and then. Ice baths and cold plunges will have an immediate effect on your entire body. The only way to truly reach consistent application of the cold is to fully submerge the body for a set duration of time.

How do you take an ice bath?
For beginners the best way is to submerge your body into the water while keeping your hands and head above the water. Focus on your breathing and remain calm as the first few minutes are always the hardest. Typically the bath would last about 5-10 minutes.
More experienced methods may include a quick head dunk into the water and keeping hands in the water for full recovery benefits. We also recommend using a colder temperature for a shorter amount of time.
