What is Contrast Therapy?

Boost Muscle Recovery and Detox with our Infrared Sauna and Cold Plunge

Hot-cold contrast therapy is a powerful combination of infrared sauna and cold plunge treatments. Many will be familiar with the detoxifying benefits of using a sauna, but fewer know about how combining it with cold plunge therapy can greatly amplify the benefits.

Contrast therapies involve cycling through hot and cold environments in order to promote vasoconstriction and vasodilation. The contrast creates a ‘pump’ effect which helps to flush out toxins while promoting the flow of fresh oxygen and nutrient-rich blood throughout your body.

It has been scientifically proven to be beneficial for pain relief, muscle recovery, stress reduction, and overall mental wellbeing.

How Does it Work

Improve Circulation

Healing and recovery are some of the main benefits you can achieve from the rapid widening and narrowing of blood vessels with Contrast Therapy.


Improved blood flow means toxins and waste products are moved out from your muscles so that they can be disposed of through the body’s natural filtration mechanisms.

Muscle Recovery

The heat from the infrared sauna penetrates deep into the muscle tissue, helping to relax them and alleviate any pain caused by tension or injury.

Endorphin Boost

‘Thermal shock’ is known to trigger anti-inflammatory responses in our bodies which increases white blood cells. These are responsible for fighting off infection and disease.

What to Expect

Before Your Session

Private Room:

Upon arrival, one of our staff members will escort you to your own private contrast therapy room, complete with a sauna and cold plunge.


We will guide you through the entire process and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Towels Provided:

Towels will be provided for your comfort and convenience.

During Your Session

Infrared Sauna:

You will start with about 15-20min in the IR Sauna to promote sweat and detoxification. While operating at temperatures lower than a traditional sauna – typically around 55°C – the infrared heat penetrates deep into the skin.

Cold Plunge:

After coming out of the sauna, you will move into a private cold plunge at around 8°C for 2-3 minutes. This rapid change in temperature helps to stimulate blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and invigorate your body.


You can then repeat the steps according to how you feel. Remember not to push yourself too hard, and listen to your body’s signals.

After Your Session

Concluding Your Session:

We recommend concluding your therapy session with a cold plunge, which allows your body to gradually return to its natural temperature.


It’s recommended to drink plenty of water both before, during, and after your session to make up for water loss in the sauna.


While individual experiences may vary, you may feel a sense of increased energy, reduced pain, and improved mood immediately following your session.

Application & Benefits

Sports Recovery

Detoxification from sweating in the sauna and reduced inflammation from cold plunging means you can recover quicker after training.

Improved Circulation

Changes in temperature cause blood vessels to dilate and contract rapidly. This means improved delivery of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to where its needed.

Pain Relief

Both hot and cold therapies can provide relief for common conditions like arthritis and muscle soreness. Helping you to stay on top of your game.

Mental Wellness

Many people report positive mental health effects from contrast therapies including reduced anxiety, lower stress, and an improvement in mood.
