Ice bath therapy is an immensely popular way to recover from exercise. Contrast water therapy involves firstly submerging your body in a hot bath which has a temperature of above 37 degrees Celsius then following up with submerging your body into a cold bath where the temperature is 10 degrees Celsius.This treatment aids the body to extract waste, stimulate circulation and reduce sore aches and pains.
