Are you looking to supercharge your morning routine and set a good tone for the day ahead? Simplify your mornings at Soak Bathhouse, and enjoy the invigorating ritual of contrast temperature therapy as your first morning act of self-care.

Contrast temperature therapy as the name suggests, involves alternating between hot and cold temperatures, a practice that has been cherished for centuries across various cultures for its myriad health benefits. 

Here are 5 benefits of incorporating contrast temperature exposure into your morning routine. 

1.) Enhanced Circulation: As you move between hot spas and cold plunges, your blood vessels undergo a workout, expanding and contracting. This process stimulates blood flow, delivering oxygen and nutrients to every corner of your body. Improved circulation not only boosts energy levels but also supports overall cardiovascular health.


2.) Revitalised Skin: Alternating between hot and cold water helps to flush out toxins from your pores while tightening and toning the skin. The hot water opens up your pores, allowing for deep cleansing, while the cold water constricts them, reducing the appearance of puffiness and promoting a youthful glow. Say hello to radiant, refreshed skin with every session. Furthermore at Soak Bathhouse our mineral pools are rich in magnesium, which is best absorbed through the skin. 


3.) Elevated Mood and Mental Clarity: The shock of cold water followed by the warmth of a sauna or hot bath triggers the release of endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin – the feel-good hormones. This natural mood boost can alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling more focused, energised, and ready to tackle the day’s challenges with a clear mind.


4.) Immune System Support: Regular exposure to contrast temperature therapy has been shown to enhance immune function by stimulating the production of white blood cells and increasing circulation of lymphatic fluid. By bolstering your body’s defences, you can better ward off illnesses and maintain optimal health throughout the year.


5.) Accelerated Muscle Recovery: Whether you’re an athlete pushing your limits or simply dealing with everyday aches and pains, contrast temperature therapy can help speed up the muscle recovery process. The alternating temperatures reduce inflammation, soothe soreness, and promote faster healing, allowing you to bounce back quicker and perform at your best.
