Ice Bath & Sauna Christchurch

Contrast therapy, using a sauna followed by an ice bath, is a health practice that has been used in Scandinavian countries for centuries. The heat from our infrared sauna penetrates deep into the muscle tissue, followed by a cool down in our ice bath, as part of resilience training. Your immune system will thank you for sessions in our ice bath and infrared sauna Christchurch.

How Contrast Therapy Can Help You

In a similar manner to how you might use heat packs and/or ice packs to treat injuries, contrast therapy using a sauna and ice bath, works in much the same way. Alternating between heat and cold forces the blood vessels in your body to open and close, creating a pumping action. This may help anyone experiencing aches and chronic pain, and those with repetitive strain injuries, who want to use it as part of their rehabilitation.

Using a sauna and ice bath is said to not only improve circulation, but it may also have positive effects on the nervous system, and can help with particular conditions and symptoms. Contrast therapy is said to reduce inflammation, swelling, and muscle soreness; it may also help to boost your immune system, and can help people who may be suffering from inflamed or itchy skin conditions (many clients find it leaves their skin glowing). Using our ice bath and infrared sauna Christchurch is a great way to increase your energy and alertness, while helping to burn calories. Many people who use contrast therapy at O-Studio, say they also experience an overall better sense of wellbeing, improving mood and enhancing sleep.

You may have heard that contrast therapy is often used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts looking for quick recovery from training or pain relief from sore muscles and injuries, however, we recommend our sauna and ice bath sessions for any busy people wanting to improve their health and wellbeing.
