Service Description

Combining an infrared sauna session with a cold water plunge can offer a range of benefits due to the contrast in temperature and the unique effects of each therapy. Detoxification: Infrared saunas promote sweating, which helps the body eliminate toxins and impurities through the skin. Following up with a cold water plunge can further enhance detoxification by closing the pores and promoting circulation, which aids in flushing out toxins from the body. Improved Circulation: Infrared sauna sessions can increase blood flow and circulation throughout the body. The cold water plunge, on the other hand, causes vasoconstriction (the narrowing of blood vessels) followed by vasodilation (the widening of blood vessels) when you warm up again. This contrast can improve overall circulation and cardiovascular health. Muscle Recovery and Pain Relief: Infrared sauna heat can help relax muscles, reduce muscle tension, and alleviate joint pain. Pairing this with a cold water plunge can reduce inflammation and speed up muscle recovery after intense physical activity or exercise. The cold water immersion constricts blood vessels, which can reduce swelling and muscle soreness. Enhanced Mood and Mental Clarity: Both infrared sauna sessions and cold water plunges have been linked to improvements in mood and mental well-being. The release of endorphins during these therapies can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. The contrast between the heat and cold can also stimulate the release of neurotransmitters like serotonin, promoting feelings of relaxation and clarity. Boosted Immune System: Regular use of both infrared saunas and cold water plunges has been associated with a stronger immune system. The heat from the sauna can help stimulate the production of white blood cells, while the cold water plunge can enhance immune function by activating the body's natural defense mechanisms. Improved Skin Health: Infrared sauna sessions may promote clearer, healthier skin by increasing blood flow to the skin's surface and promoting collagen production. Following up with a cold water plunge can help tighten pores and reduce inflammation, leading to improved skin tone and texture. * 20 minute Infrared Sauna * Cold Water Plunge * Robe, slippers & towel provided * Includes a post dip hot drink (tea, coffee or hot chocolate)
