Hot/Cold/Relax & how it works

Before you enter the bathhouse, shower off & suit up

Showering off (with soap!) is required to cleanse the body of fragrances, sweat, yuck, etc. This improves the communal experience and maintains the cleanliness of our bathhouse. We have personal showers available in our locker room for you to hop into.

Bathing suits are required, so use this time to change if needed. We also love to set an intention and take a few deep breaths.

Sweat it out in the sauna for 15 minutes

Take your pick between our aspen wood sauna (our wet sauna, located upstairs) or our dry cedar sauna (located downstairs in our quiet area).

We recommend spending 15 minutes in the sauna but, as with all things, listen to your body.

Cool down in the cold shower & ice plunge

After the sauna, step into our cooling shower for a rinse before entering the 53˚F plunge. The shower helps rinse away sweat to keep the cold plunge clean.

The cold plunge can be a shock! We encourage you to reclaim your breath during this portion of the circuit with easy 6-in-6-out breath counting. We recommend spending 1-5 minutes in the cold plunge.

Relax, rehydrate, repeat

Recharge on our stone-cast heated furniture or lounging decks. Make sure to give your body some much-needed hydration - we have a water bottle filling station along with tea and coffee, sparkling beverages, and electrolyte mixes to enjoy in between circuits.

We recommend lounging for as long as you’d like. Repeat the Hot/Cold/Relax circuit for the remainder of your two-hour bathhouse visit.

Make time for peace & healing

It’s more than just a feeling - contrast therapy is proven to help heal your body & mind

Recovery & Pain

When you’re in the sauna, your body prevents your core from overheating by directing more blood to your limbs. Increased blood flow drives oxygen deeper into muscles and joint tissue which shortens the time it takes injuries to heal and increases the body's ability to recover from athletic performance. It also soothes aches and chronic pain.

Cognitive Function

Sauna sends richly oxygenated blood to the brain to improve cognitive functions. Regular sauna use reduces the risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of mental decay, potentially by reducing inflammation and the inflammation markers linked to these specific illnesses.

Anxiety & Depression

Cold water immersion sends huge electrical impulses from your peripheral nerve endings up into the brain. This alleviates symptoms of anxiety and depression and improves alertness, focus, and cognition. Regular cold water use has existed for centuries and is one of the best holistic ways to treat anxiety and depression.

Cardiovascular Health

As the body’s most vital organ, it’s important to keep our cardiovascular system strong and healthy. A study out of Finland found that frequent sauna sessions substantially reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Healthy Skin

The hot air and moisture of a sauna enhance collagen production to help rejuvenate your skin's elasticity and complexion. The heat increase also allows your skin to shed dead skin cells and sweating cleanses the skin, flushing out all the bad stuff in pores and increasing blood circulation for nourishment. You’ll find that your skin feels and looks healthier and is less prone to acne, blackheads, and other pesky blemishes.

Metabolism

Cold exposure reworks the fat cells in your body. White fat is storage, while brown fat is metabolic, and cold plunge encourages stem cells to form brown fat which will increase your resting metabolic rate, meaning you’ll burn more calories in a rested state.

Immune System

Cold water immersion lowers heart rate, constricts blood and lymphatic vessels, and shunts blood back to your core to maintain its temperature. This sends oxygenated blood to your internal organs and pumps lymph fluid through nodes, flushing out waste and triggering white blood cells to destroy foreign bodies.

Technology Detox

Disconnect from technology and reconnect with yourself. Constant use of screens and media has made a major impact on our collective mental health. Leave your phones behind and enjoy an intentional conversation with old friends, the opportunity to make new friends, or take time to connect with your breath and reflect inward.
