Cold Therapy Pool NOW OPEN

We are excited to announce the newest addition to the Restoration Zone… Cold Therapy Pool!

Cold Therapy Pools or ‘Ice Baths’ are commonly used by many athletes around the world as a recovery protocol to aid in reducing soreness, inflammation and flush lactic acid – minimising fatigue and maximising performance.

In more recent times the treatment has been popularised by people such as world record holder Wim Hof, through his Wim Hof Method, professional athletes and celebrities like Tony Robbins who starts each day with cold water immersion.

Research has shown a cascade of health benefits including:

+ Hormone balance

+ Improved sleep

+ Endorphin production

+ Improved immune system

+ Reduced inflammation

Recommended Protocol: 

  1. Breathe

Breath and the cold are the best friends you never knew you had.

The power of specific breathing exercises can help you gain control over your body and mind, and ultimately help you to influence your nervous system and immune system.

There are hundreds of different breathing traditions from all over the world, find one that keeps it simple – it’s what the breath does for you that matters.

2. Cold 

The cold water causes blood vessels to tighten or constrict sending blood closer to your core & heart to maintain warmth. Circulation is then accelerated causing accelerated muscle recovery.

3. Heat 

The high, dry temperatures of the sauna trigger an exodus of impurities and toxins present within the body, clearing pores and easing muscle tensions. sweating alleviates symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness, and cause blood vessels to dilate, which allow better blood flow and nutrient delivery to stiff areas.

While our steam room still removes impurities from the body, its purpose differs from the sauna as it employs wet heat rather than dry heat. Detoxification occurs through its steam healing,  replenishing skin complexion and promoting circulation.

The Cold Therapy Pool is NOW OPEN to all Restoration Zone members and can be accessed during staffed hours.
