How to Survive Stampede

Stampede is right around the corner and whether it’s your first Stampede or your 10th it’s still one of the most exciting times of the year here in Calgary. 10 days of events, drinks, dancing, concerts and late nights can have a serious toll on your body. So how do us Calgarians stay standing for all 10 days?

The Calgary Stampede is often referred to as the greatest show on earth. We have to agree that it is pretty darn great! So what is our secret to keeping our energy levels up during this 10 days of partying?

Step 1: IV Therapy
Getting IV Therapy is the best way to prevent hangovers – our liver detox was made for this – get it BEFORE you stampede to feel great, and last all day/night. To prevent a hangover we recommend coming in 2-5 days before you plan on going out for best results. Our liver detox rehydrates and replenishes you so you can wake up and do it all over again the next day! We offer a wide selection of IV treatments; our expert Calgary naturopathic doctors will help find the right one for you.

IV therapy is the most effective delivery system for essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. By bypassing the digestive system, we can give you higher doses of the good stuff and ensure 100% absorption – rather than the 40-60% absorption rates you’ll get from oral supplements.

The benefits of IV therapy include increased energy, enhanced mood, improved sleep, and decreased stress, to name a few. So book your session here before you hit the dance floor.

Our NEW IV hours! 
Monday 3-6pm
Tuesday 3-6pm
Wednesday 10-1pm
Friday 11-3pm
Saturday 11-2pm

Step 2: Hydration Station
If you do end up with a hangover this is a great way to sweat it out and recover quicker! Not to mention it’s like a mini spa session so you can relax for a little while and maybe even catch some much needed sleep. Come in for a hydration station! 30 minutes of Infrared for detox, moisture, and relaxation – an incredible way to curb/suffer through a hangover. This unique technology uses a combination of infrared light, radiant heat, steam therapy, liquid vitamins and vibrating massage to open your pores, rebalance your skin’s pH, rehydrate your body and detoxify your lymphatic system.

Step 3: Vitamin B12 Shots
B12 shots for energy – are you working Stampede this year? We know first hand that means long hours and no sleep. Spending 15 hours on your feet until 4am isn’t easy so don’t let yourself get run down! It’s easy to let yourself get depleted while working in the service industry, or even just hosting or attending a lot of events. Pop in for a B12 shot anytime during our IV hours.  At just $30 This is a very cost effective way to get a boost and keep your energy levels up!

Step 4: Get a Spray Tan!
SPRAY TANS to be bronze the entire stampede! It’s important to feel good for stampede but it’s just as important to look your best! We suggest coming in Tuesday or Wednesday night before Stampede so it looks perfect for Friday. Then scrubbing it off the following Wednesday with our tan reset for a fresh spray on Wednesday so you are ready again for the last weekend of Stampede! Our tan reset is available at all 5 of our locations!

Why you should Cryo with us!

When you first think of Cryotherapy you might think of professional athletes boasting about using it after practice and games or big name celebrities littering their Instagram with photos in the Cryosauna. But you don’t have to be rich and famous or endure day-long physical activity to see the value of Cryo. It is highly beneficial for regularly active people or if you have an injury to incorporate Cryo into your routine. Bronze Baxx offers Cryotherapy at our downtown location making it convenient to stop by for a quick treatment at lunch time or after work.

How It Works

We have a standing Cryosauna and we supply you with a robe (to get in the Cryosauna), slippers, socks and gloves (to wear during your session). Each session is three minutes long exposing your body to extremely cold temperatures of -150oC to -180oC using Nitrogen Gas.  It takes about thirty seconds for your body to start reacting when it realizes you might be in danger of freezing. It undergoes vasoconstriction and sends vast amounts of blood to key internal organs.

When you step out of the Cryosauna your body immediately re-circulates super-oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood which rids your body of toxins. We encourage our clients to use our Hydration Station or UV Tanning to warm up after.

Benefits

Say goodbye to ice baths. Cryo essentially replaces the need to sit in a freezing bath for twenty minutes while providing more benefits. There are many benefits to Cryo from injuries to overall health and wellness. Here are a few of them:

  • Boost your mood, relieve stress, reduce anxiety and depression.
  • Pain relief from joint disorders or injuries
  • Reduce inflammation, muscle soreness, and spasms
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Increases metabolism and can burn up to 800 calories after each session
  • Improves post-surgery recovery
  • Improved collagen production
Details

The benefits of Cryo exponentially outweigh the few minutes you have to stand in the cold. We offer cryotherapy at our downtown location on 4th Street. You can purchase a single session or a pack if you want to make it a routine. A single session is $65 and we offer packs of 5 sessions ($275), 10 sessions ($450) and 20 sessions ($800).

Come try Cryotherapy for yourself! Call us or book online.

We love Stampede because it’s a time where we come together as a community to line dance, eat pancakes and cheer on Champions. It’s a time to celebrate our local culture, and as a 100% locally owned and grown business, we are proud– proud to be apart of the culture and community that makes Calgary like no other city in Canada.
