What is Cold Plunge Therapy?

The Quick, Cool Way to Enhance Your Health

Cold plunge therapy is a cold-water immersion technique. The practice entails dunking in chilly temperatures for five minutes or less. Bathing in icy water boasts a wealth of physical and mental benefits. Exposure to short bursts of extreme cold is linked to improved sleep, heightened athletic performance, lower oxidative stress, tissue healing, and profound feelings of calm. It may also slow aging. Cold plunges awaken endorphins and other hormones that facilitate stress release and tissue repair — all without relying on drugs. Our indoor ice baths are safe and natural, allowing you to take charge of your health holistically.

As part of your cold plunge therapy treatment, we have luxury showers that provide a spa experience before and after the cold plunge. You can also combine cold plunge with an infrared sauna, massage therapy, compression therapy, and IV fluid treatments for a premium experience. At Hydrology Wellness, we provide nothing less than the best for your ultimate wellness and comfort.

Cold Plunge Therapy vs. Cryotherapy

Convenient & Holistic Wellness Enhancement

Cold Plunge Therapy and Cryotherapy are two distinct approaches to cold-water immersion, each offering unique benefits. Our cold plunge tubs are set to a brisk 39F, while our cryotherapy booths are minus-200 degrees Fahrenheit. As you soak, you'll sit or lie back rather than stand upright. Cold Plunge Therapy offers benefits such as improved sleep, athletic performance, and tissue healing, while Cryotherapy provides increased energy, reduced inflammation, and enhanced sleep quality. Each utilizes the power of cold temperatures to promote well-being, allowing you to choose the method that best aligns with your needs and preferences. Both options tout incredible benefits, so you can’t go wrong no matter which you choose!

The Science Behind Hydrology's Cold Plunge Therapy treatment:

Cold Plunge Therapy: Is it Right for You?


Cold plunge therapy is becoming increasingly recognized in healthcare, offering unique therapeutic benefits through exposure to cold water. Widely embraced across various medical disciplines, it provides targeted treatment and supports recovery for a range of conditions. The objectives of cold plunge therapy encompass prompt intervention, optimizing therapeutic outcomes, and addressing specific health concerns. This article delves into the diverse applications of cold plunge therapy, offering insights into its efficacy for different medical conditions and underscoring its growing importance in contemporary healthcare practices.


  1. Muscle Recovery & Pain Relief

Cold plunge therapy aids in muscle recovery post-exercise or injury by alleviating soreness. Cold water immersion constricts blood vessels, reducing inflammation and eliminating metabolic waste like lactic acid, easing muscle fatigue. It also diminishes nerve activity, providing relief from pain and enhancing muscle relaxation.


A study by Qu et al. (2020) indicates that whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) has positive effects on various indicators linked to exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD), assisting in muscle recovery and pain relief. Compared to cold-water immersion (CWI) and contrast-water therapy (CWT), WBC shows superior timing-sequence recovery effects. Specifically, WBC leads to improvements in perceived sensation (measured by a visual analog scale), plasma creatine kinase (CK) activity, plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) activity, and vertical-jump height (VJH). These results suggest that WBC effectively alleviates muscle soreness, inflammation, and muscle damage, facilitating faster recovery and improving overall muscle function.

  1. Improved Circulation & Immune Function

Cold plunge therapy prompts the body's response to cold, causing vasoconstriction followed by vasodilation, which enhances circulation. This boosts blood flow to vital organs and tissues, potentially strengthening immune function by boosting white blood cell production. Additionally, cold exposure may trigger endorphin release, fostering a sense of well-being and reducing stress.


The study by Rose et al. (2023) shows how cryotherapy boosts immune function and circulation by mobilizing lymphocytes like CD16+ NK cells and CD8+ T cells after exposure to cold treatments, especially whole-body cryotherapy (WBC). Compared to cold-water immersion (CWI), WBC triggers a stronger increase in these immune cell subsets, likely due to the higher catecholamine response from colder temperatures. This immune cell mobilization resembles responses seen with exercise or psychological stress. While conventional monocytes didn't change, B-cell counts rose in the control group, possibly due to differences between time points.

  1. Enhanced Recovery & Performance

Cold plunge therapy accelerates recovery between workouts for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. By minimizing inflammation and muscle damage, it enables quicker recuperation from strenuous exercise, allowing for more intense and frequent training sessions. Furthermore, regular use can improve overall athletic performance by enhancing muscle function, lowering injury risk, and expediting recovery.


This study by Haq et al. (2022) examines how repetitive whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) treatments influence outcomes in a 6-week concurrent training program blending strength and endurance exercises. Both the WBC and control groups saw enhancements in lower body strength, jump power, and body composition. Unlike previous findings on cold water immersion (CWI), which suggested negative effects on long-term training adaptations, this study found no such hindrance, especially in muscle strength. Although WBC didn't affect muscle strength gains compared to the control. Repetitive WBC treatments seem to have slightly positive effects on training adaptations.


In summary, cold plunge therapy, especially whole-body cryotherapy (WBC), emerges as a versatile intervention with promising therapeutic advantages across various medical contexts. Studies discussed herein demonstrate its effectiveness in muscle recovery, pain relief, immune system enhancement, and improved recovery and performance among athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

Cold Plunge Therapy

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of Cold Plunge Therapy?

Core benefits include deep relaxation, muscle recovery, increased circulation, better sleep, and renewed vitality.

Is Cold Plunge Therapy safe?

Our tech-driven cold plunge tubs are a safe, relaxing way to recharge. They feature built-in filtration and sanitizing technology for maximum safety and cleanliness.

How does Cold Plunge Therapy differ from Cryotherapy?

The primary difference is in the experience. During cryotherapy, clients stand upright in a cold chamber for a few minutes and are subject to temperatures of negative 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Our cold plunge baths dip as low as 39 F degrees. You can lie back, meditate, practice your breathing, or hop in and out as you please.

How often is Cold Plunge Therapy recommended?

Two to three times per week is optimal.

What do I wear during Cold Plunge Therapy?

You are welcome to dress to your comfort level, whether that is wearing a swimsuit or something more covered up. That said, we encourage minimal clothing so more of your skin surface gets exposed to the cold water.

Your body is 60 percent water. Your brain? 75 percent water. When your fluids are out of whack, it impacts how you feel, think, and act. That’s where we come in. You’ll love the feeling of you at your best. Stay updated with the grand opening of Hydrology so you can be the first to experience it for yourself.
