Frequently asked questions
What are the health benefits of an ice room?
Typical benefits derived from using an ice room include increased circulation, increasing willpower and motivation, stress relief, reduced inflammation and better sleep. They are also used by athletes to aid in the muscle recovery process.
What other treatment rooms go well with an ice room?
Often in spas through the ages you would have a sequence of rooms that went from cool to warm, hot then cool again. You can see this in the Turkish or Moroccan Hammam spa. In colder regions such as the Nordic countries people would use a hot sauna followed by jumping in the snow. The contrasting hot and cold would jump start the body and mind and the result would be increased vigour.
This contrast is popular today and can be seen in wellness spas across the globe. Hot rooms such as saunas and steam rooms coupled by a cold room such as an ice room or snow cave perfectly complement each other and can be installed in both home and commercial spa environments.
