Contrast therapy is for everyone. It is a healing technique that has been around for centuries. Also known as the Nordic cycle, which involves a user spending 10 - 20 minutes in a traditional Finnish sauna, then 30 seconds to 5 minutes in a very cold water plunge (aka ice-bath). The process is repeated at least twice or until the body is completely relaxed.
Going back and forth between the two is an amazing experience that benefits your body and mind in numerous ways. The therapeutic benefits will stay with you for a long time and are science backed. Some consider this therapy to be a natural anti-depressant because the effects on mood state are immediately noticeable.
Our 2x hot sauna + cold plunge (ice bath) rooms are available for private sessions of 1 to 3 people, for a 45 minute session (1 hour total room hire), with the ability to select extra time when booking in. The traditional hot rocks sauna & cold plunge are in the same private room with a shower.
Please bring your own towel, a bottle of water and swim wear (or your birthday suit).
You will need to sign the waiver and complete our client form before use. It is recommended you familiarise yourself with the practice & come prepared. Although we do our best to explain everything you need to know before hopping in, and we know you will leave feeling amazing. Altered States Float has the right to refuse service to anyone.
