What is cold water therapy?
Cold water therapy is the practice of using water that’s around 59°F or less (15°C) to treat health conditions or stimulate health benefits. It’s also known as cold hydrotherapy. The practice has been around for a couple of millennia and now can be part of your daily routine from the comfort of your own home.

Benefits of COLD PLUNGE
Whether you’re looking to recover from a tough workout or you simply want to de-stress, here are some of the many benefits of cold water therapy:
1. Reduced Pain & Inflammation
Cold water therapy has long been a popular option for recovering from a long workout. However, cold therapy isn’t just for professional athletes. Other studies have found that cold exposure can sometimes help with pain caused by rheumatism, fibromyalgia, and other similar conditions.
2. Immune System Benefits
Your immune system prevents you from catching cold viruses and other infections. Many people try to boost their immune systems with vitamins and supplements, but they don’t realize they could get better results by taking a walk in the cold or taking a cold bath. That’s because white blood cells, which fight infection, circulate in your body more quickly when you are exposed to cold temperatures. Exposure to cold may also help your immune system produce other infection-fighting warriors, including t-cells and antibodies.
3. Enhanced Mindfulness
While cold water immersion often focuses a lot on the physical benefits of the practice, regular cold water therapy’s advantages extend well beyond your muscles and joints.
In fact, many folks use cold water therapy as a way to become more mindful and in tune with their bodies. Some people even use regular ice baths to help them sleep better or to lower their stress levels. Meanwhile, others use cold plunges to help them reconnect with themselves and find their inner peace.
Although everyone’s response to cold water immersion is slightly different, most people find that it helps them relax and recover from the bustle of day-to-day life.
Cold water therapy with COLD PLUNGE might sound like counterintuitive advice, but it turns out that taking a dip in cold water could have unexpected health benefits. If you’ve never tried cold water therapy you may want to consider it. The benefits are numerous, and the costs are low. So go ahead, get in the and see what happens. Always check with your healthcare provider first about new therapies.
