ABOUT OUR ICE BATH
The ideal temperature range for most recovery protocols is between 8 and 15 degrees therefore, ORA's ice bath sits at around 11-12 degrees the majority of the time.
On a Wednesday morning the tub is chilled down to 6 degrees for those who like the extra challenge of a Wim Hof style cold water session. We also have the flexibility to customise the temperature for your session - contact us to discuss.
Our ice bath is single occupancy but you are welcome to bring a friend and alternate during your session.
The ice bath is kept clean and hygienic via an inbuilt computer which continuously monitors the water sanitisation.
WHAT DOES A SESSION LOOK LIKE?
When you try an ice bath at ORA for the first time we will start with asking you about your cold water exposure experience (if any) followed by a number of questions to determine the best protocol for you.
The session is 20 minutes maximum however for clients with limited cold water experience we recommend aiming for five minutes initially.
If you are feeling nervous or apprehensive about your session we are more than happy to remain with you throughout your session to provide guidance.
