Simple Contrast Bathing Therapy Guide

Step 1:

Warm Soaking
Up to 100°F ( 5 – 10 min. )

Start with a brief soak in a warm (up to 100°F degrees) pool long enough to acclimate your body to the ambient temperature.

TIP: During a contrast bathing session, it’s vital to stay hydrated with quality water. Moreover, if you have heart or blood pressure-related health concerns, please exercise caution.

Step 2:

Hot Soaking
101°F – 104°F ( 5 – 10 min. )

Next, soak in a hot (101°F-104°F) to a very hot (105°F+) pool. Soaking in hot water increases your blood circulation, bringing oxygen-rich blood to your organs, tissues, and extremities. Relax as the hot water soothes your body and eases sore muscles.

Step 3:

 Cold Soaking
64°F and Below ( 1 min. )

After you soak in a hot pool, find a cold pool and immerse your body. The cold water will constrict your blood vessels and force blood to your core and internal organs such as the liver and kidneys, aiding in detoxifying your system. Constriction is a natural way to exercise your smooth muscles and blood vessels, thus helping to maintain their elasticity.
