A guide to coldplunges

What is a cold plunge?

Cold plunges are an excellent way of cooling down after a sauna. You should not stay in a cold plunge for longer than 10 or 20 seconds, or the cold water will draw too much heat from your body.

After cooling down, your body noticeably relaxes. As the blood vessels in your skin and subcutaneous tissue contract, your blood flow is diverted inwards, sending an increased supply of blood to inner organs such as your kidneys.

Note that this diversion of blood to the inner organs can be quite extreme. So it’s not advisable to cool down in this way if you suffer from high blood pressure or are pregnant, as you don’t want to raise your blood pressure higher in either case.

At Dröm UK, we can design and build all kinds of wellness areas to suit your property and use. Add a cold plunge to your wellness area.
