How It Works

Contrast Water Therapy capitalises on the body's natural response to temperature changes. The method typically involves submerging yourself alternately in hot and cold water, with each immersion lasting a few minutes. The heat causes blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow, while the cold causes vessels to constrict, helping to flush out waste products and reduce inflammation.
