Ice Bath FAQs
How long should I spend in the ice bath, my first time?
When it is the first time, you should limit your time to a maximum of 5 minutes in the ice bath.
What is the longest I should spend in the ice bath?
When receiving an ice bath therapy treatment, you do run the risk of hypothermia if you submerge in the bath for too long. It is your responsibility to listen to your body and not submerge for longer than 15 minutes.
What do I do after the ice bath?
Ensure that you rise out of the bath very gradually and slowly to avoid any light headedness or slipping. Then make your way to the hot shower to warm the body and feel the “tingly” sensation of the cold immersion therapy working.
How soon after exercise should I book in for cold immersion therapy?
Any time after 24 hours is recommended, however, if you can time it so that you are using the ice bath as soon after exercise as possible, that will have the greatest benefits.
