MELT AWAY MUSCLE PAIN,
BUILT-UP TOXINS & STRESS.
How it works
For your body
Unlike a traditional sauna, our infrared sauna uses an infrared wavelength of light to warm your body directly, rather than simply heating the air around you. Because the infrared light penetrates your skin to heat your body directly – you can experience a more intense sweat, in a much more comfortable temperature than a traditional sauna.
Raising your core body temperate mimics an artificial fever and switches on your body’s natural defence mechanisms, stimulating the circulation of white blood cells which assist in fighting infections and boosting immunity. The heat also causes your heart rate to increase and blood vessels to dilate – this causes an increase in blood circulation. This increased circulation helps to carry healthy oxygenated blood to depleted muscles for faster recovery.
Increased blood circulation paired with an intense sweat helps to remove heavy metals and toxins from your body. Sweating also helps achieve clearer, tighter skin for a more youthful appearance.
For your mind
The infrared sauna activates your parasympathetic nervous system which takes you out of a stressful state, encourages relaxation and sets you up for a better night’s sleep.
We recommend hitting the magnesium hydrotherapy pools after your sauna session to really amplify your recovery. Make sure to shower off before diving in!
REDUCES MUSCLE PAIN
Frequently Asked Questions
What is contrast water therapy good for?Benefits include the soothing of sore muscles and joints, decreased anxiety and stress, reduced swelling, improved mobility and reduced pain. Plus, the magnesium from the pools that is absorbed through the skin helps to further aid muscle recovery by reducing soreness and inflammation.
How long should you stay in the magnesium pool?We recommend alternating between our hot and cold magnesium pools in four-minute cycles for three rounds. This means you could stay in the cold pool for four minutes, switch to the hot pool for four minutes and repeat this at least three times. With roughly 24 minutes in the pools, you could easily complete a full contrast water therapy session in just half an hour if you’re short on time.
Is contrast water therapy the same as aqua therapy?Contrast water therapy refers to the action of alternating between hot and cold pools and is known to improve blood circulation throughout your body. Whereas, Aqua therapy is a type of physical therapy that takes place in a pool under the supervision of a trained healthcare professional.
What temperature are the pools?The temperature of our hot pools are set at a comforting 39 degrees celsius. Our cold pools are a cool 9 degrees celsius.
What is a magnesium pool?Our contrast water therapy magnesium pools differ from a regular swimming pool. They are designed specifically to treat a variety of conditions and elevate your recovery and wellbeing. The concept of hot and cold contrast therapy involves alternating between the hot and cold magnesium pools. It’s this contrast of temperature that causes your blood vessels to constrict and expand which increases blood circulation and reduces inflammation. The rapid blood flow carries extra oxygen and nutrients to your muscles to assist with repair, decrease pain and also increase your metabolism. Additionally, magnesium in the water is absorbed through your skin which helps to regulate optimal magnesium stores in your body – this further aids in muscle recovery; reducing soreness and inflammation.
