Getting into cold water has both pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory benefits:
Unsurprisingly, immersing yourself in cold water reduces body temperature (core, skin & muscle) which, depending on the protocol used, can continue to drop (slowly, with no harmful effects) for 30 min afterwards. This has the following benefits, including an overall reduction in muscle pain:
Reduces nerve activity, which decreases pain & soreness and therefore improves muscle function
Reduces swelling & inflammation caused by exercise
When immersing yourself in cold water, your body wants to protect its vital organs, so it moves blood to the core by closing blood vessels in the hands and feet, through a process known as vasoconstriction. This reduces blood flow to the muscles, which reduces swelling & inflammation caused by exercise, decreases pain & soreness and improves muscle function.

CAN THE BATH BE USED WITH HOT WATER?
Yes, we recommend 38-40°C water, which the bath can comfortably handle
HOW COLD SHOULD THE RECOVERY PROJECT ICE BATH BE?
For recovery purposes, the water should be between 10-15°C. It takes approximately 3-4 10 kg bags of ice to get the bath to this temperature when it is ¾ filled.
HOW DO I EMPTY THE WATER?
There is a plug and a tap option at the base of the bath. The bath also comes with a Drainage Adaptor that allows you to run water further away from the bath.
HOW DO YOU FILL THE ICE BATH?
You can fill the Ice Bath using either a garden hose or shower
HOW LONG CAN YOU LEAVE WATER IN THE ICE BATH FOR?
This is a bit of a difficult one to answer as it will depend on a number of factors such as frequency of use, number of people using it, where the ice bath is located etc. However, if it’s only 1 or 2 people using it, then as a rule of thumb, you would want to refresh your Ice Bath water every 48 h.
HOW LONG SHOULD I SPEND IN THE RECOVERY PROJECT ICE BATH?
Research has shown that to enhance recovery you should aim to accumulate 10 min in the Ice Bath. You can either do this all at once (i.e. 10 min straight) or if you’re not used to Cold Water Immersion, you can break it up into shorter durations (e.g. 2 x 5 min with 2 min out of bath inbetween).
IS THE RECOVERY PROJECT ICE BATH SAFE?
We recommend using the Recovery Project Ice Bath when you have someone nearby, especially if you are new to cold water immersion. It is important to consult with your doctor prior to using the Recovery Project Ice Bath, especially if you suffer high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease.
WHAT IS THE PUMP FOR?
The foot pump is used to inflate the ring around the top of the Ice Bath to add extra stability.
WHEN SHOULD I USE THE RECOVERY PROJECT ICE BATH?
For recovery from exercise, health benefits (e.g. increasing parasympathetic nervous system activation & improving immune function) or for coping with stress/improving your mood.
