The Lab is a cutting-edge wellness facility focused on delivering the best care from top-of-the-line healthcare professionals in Santa Barbara. By using cutting-edge research and techniques related to both athletic performance and individual wellness The Lab places an emphasis on building, restoring, and regenerating the human body. At The Lab, athletes of all levels and abilities have access to the tools they need to improve, recover, and perform to their full potential.

The Lab offers many unique services to its clients, including whole body cryotherapy, physical therapy, athletic training, massage therapy, force-plate run assessment, yoga, and pilates.

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) exposes the body to ultra-low temperatures for a short period of time, which has been shown to increase performance and decrease recovery time. Some other areas of research include treatment of depression, anxiety, enhancement of immune function, and improved cardiovascular function. Whether you are running for fun, an elite runner, or running ultras WBC has benefits that will uniquely help you accomplish your goals.

Inside the state of the art facility, The Lab uses the Simi Running Analysis and Kistler Force Plate Analysis to assess our athletes. This equipment uses detailed methods of examination through video recording to detect biomechanical parameters in every phase of movement. Well-respected physical therapist and running coach, Mike Swan, uses this information to better be able to identify improper movement patterns that have the potential to cause injury. Using this information we design a personalized program for each athlete to prevent injury, aid in the rehabilitation process, and enhance efficient run patterns.
