What is thermotherapy?

A three-step relaxation ritual

Thermotherapy is a treatment that involves alternating between hot and cold temperatures, followed by a rest period. This relaxation ritual is based on a 2000-year-old tradition founded in Nordic countries.

To draw the maximum benefit, we recommend completing the three steps listed below in order, and then repeating the entire cycle three times.

Step 1: Hot

Spend 5 to 15 minutes in a sauna

Your body is storing heat, dilating your pores, and eliminating toxins.

Step 2: Cold

Exposure to cold for 10 to 15 seconds

The transition from hot to cold produces a thermal shock, releasing adrenaline.

Step 3: Rest

At least 20 minutes in a relaxation area

Following the thermal shock, resting helps to slow the release of adrenaline and make way for endorphins.
