Nicholas Fadden

As the calendar turns, Vancouver's wellness community is buzzing with the latest trend that's both invigorating and beneficial – alternating hot exposure and cold plunges. The Cove Sports Recovery invites you to immerse yourself in this transformative practice and maintain your New Year's commitment to health and vitality.


The Power of Temperature: Hot and Cold Plunges in Vancouver

Nestled in the heart of West Vancouver, The Cove Sports Recovery provides an oasis where the ancient tradition of thermal therapy meets cutting-edge wellness. The practice of alternating between hot and cold environments – known as contrast therapy – has been catapulted into the spotlight, becoming a must-try for anyone dedicated to maintaining their New Year's wellness resolutions. So what is stopping you?


Why Hot and Cold Plunges Are the Trend to Keep This Year

  1. Boosted Recovery: Hot and cold plunges are renowned for their ability to accelerate recovery post-workout. The hot water soothes and relaxes muscles, while the cold plunge invigorates and reduces inflammation, making it a perfect regimen for Vancouver's active community (Vaile et al., 2008).
  2. Enhanced Circulation: The Cove Sports Recovery's temperature-controlled plunges promote blood flow and improve circulation, which is essential for optimal health and the body's natural healing processes (Mawhinney et al., 2013).
  3. Stress Relief: In the midst of life's hustle, finding calmness is a treasure. Hot and cold plunges provide a mindful escape, offering a unique way to de-stress and keep those New Year's resolutions of self-care (Ihsan et al., 2016).
