Take the Plunge! Sauna and Ice Bath Therapy, known as Contrast Therapy, has been practiced in Finland for over 1000 years. Versions of it have even existed all the way back to ancient Rome. In modern times, we now have the science to back up the practice. There is evidence to show that regular cold baths seem to relieve pain, protect against oxidative stress, increase antioxidants in the body and relieve anxiety and depressive symptoms. Studies also report positive effects on blood pressure, the immune system, and sleep. From a performance standpoint, contrast therapy has also been shown to increase fat burn, speed up recovery and increase muscle gains.
We’re not going to lie, it does take some serious mental fortitude to complete a session but we promise it will change your world! Grab your bathing suit and towel and join us for a Plunge!
