An increasing trend in the health and wellness sector is the rise of cold water therapy. Cold tubs, also known as ice baths, have been utilized by athletes to recover from physical exertion and injuries. Now, the cold tub is gaining popularity as a wellness feature in homes, providing both physical and mental benefits.
We at Orange County Pools & Spas are proud to offer the King Kool Plunge to our customers in the Hudson Valley. With their sleek design and top-notch performance, these tubs have quickly become a leading choice in the cold tub market. Efficient and sophisticated, they are cutting-edge amenities aimed at elevating your overall well-being and enhancing your ownership experience.
The popularity of cold plunge tubs is increasing in post-pandemic homes as people search for new ways to enhance their health and wellness. Designed to fill with ice-cold water, these tubs offer various benefits through cold water immersion therapy.
The following are a few of the main reasons why cold tubs are loved by Orange County Pools & Spas:
When sore muscles slow you down, cold water therapy can speed up recovery from exercise by reducing inflammation and lactic acid in muscles.
Cold water immersion can increase blood flow, reducing inflammation and aiding recovery after physical activity, especially for athletes.
The improved blood flow and circulation experienced through cold water therapy contribute to a boost in your energy levels and improvement in your overall physical and mental performance.
Maintaining a healthy immune system has become a prevalent priority since the pandemic. Cold water immersion can help stimulate your immune system, helping you fight off illness and infection. With regular use of a cold plunge tub, you can look forward to a stronger immune system and, thus, fewer sick days.
When you soak in cold water, you help stimulate the production of endorphins in your brain, reducing stress levels and improving mental health.
The endorphins produced by your cold water immersion can reduce anxiety and elevate your overall mood.
Cold water can improve skin health by increasing blood flow and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cold water therapy can regulate sleep by stimulating melatonin production, leading to improved sleep, reduced fatigue, and better overall health and wellness.
The King Kool Plunge and cold water therapy already offer numerous benefits for your wellness, but it can be made even more advantageous by adding a sauna session. Combining a ClearlightⓇ Sauna, like the kind we carry at Orange County Pools & Spas, with cold water therapy provides the ultimate suite of health and wellness benefits through the transition from high infrared heat to ice-cold water.
The transition from high infrared heat to ice-cold water optimizes the health and wellness benefits you experience in the following ways:
Aside from the many health benefits, the King Kool Plunge also offers a number of convenient and enjoyable features, making the use and ownership of the tub a rewarding experience in itself.
