How to do Contrast Therapy in our Sauna Suites

Are you looking for a rejuvenating and invigorating wellness hack? Try contrast therapy using our private infrared sauna suites, complete with vitamin-c infused showers. This easy-to-follow routine can be done right in our suites, allowing you to experience the benefits of contrast therapy even if all of our dedicated contrast therapy suites are booked. Here's how you can make the most of your session:


How to Do Contrast Therapy in our Sauna Suites

  1. Start in the Sauna: Begin your contrast therapy session in the infrared sauna. We recommend spending about 10 minutes in the sauna, but it's important to listen to your body and adjust the time as needed.

  2. Cold Shower: After your sauna session, step into the shower set to a cold setting. Stay in the cold shower for 1-3 minutes. The sudden change in temperature will boost circulation and invigorate your system.

  3. Repeat: Return to the sauna for another 10-minute session. After this, take another 1-3 minute cold shower. Repeat this cycle one more time for a total of three rounds.

  4. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!: It’s crucial to stay hydrated throughout your session. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your contrast therapy to keep your body well-hydrated and to aid in detoxification.


Benefits of Contrast Therapy

Contrast therapy, alternating between hot and cold environments, offers several health benefits:

  • Improved Circulation: The alternating temperatures help to improve blood flow and circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients more efficiently throughout your body.

  • Muscle Recovery: This therapy is great for reducing muscle soreness and accelerating recovery after exercise, making it a favorite among athletes.

  • Boosted Immune System: Regular contrast therapy sessions can enhance your immune system, helping you stay healthier by stimulating the production of white blood cells.

  • Stress Relief: The combination of heat and cold can reduce stress, promote relaxation, and improve overall mental well-being.

  • Skin Health: The sauna opens your pores and helps detoxify your skin, while the cold shower tightens pores and reduces inflammation, leaving your skin feeling refreshed.


Sauna and Cold Showers: Perfect for Summer

You might think sauna therapy is only for the colder months, but incorporating a cold shower into your sauna routine can make it incredibly refreshing and beneficial during the summer. Here’s why:

  • Beat the Heat: While the thought of a sauna session might seem counterintuitive in the heat of summer, the cold shower in between sessions provides a refreshing and cooling contrast, making the experience invigorating rather than overwhelming.

  • Maintain Consistency: It's important to continue your sauna therapy throughout the year. Regular use of the sauna helps maintain its benefits, such as improved circulation, detoxification, and stress relief. Skipping sessions during the summer can disrupt these ongoing health benefits.

  • Summer Wellness: The combination of heat and cold can be particularly effective in managing summer-specific issues like heat fatigue and muscle tension from increased outdoor activities.
