At Solea Wellness, we offer a unique immersion program to increase energy levels and creativity, boost metabolism, and improve the emotional and overall well-being. This treatment program is perfect for those who want to make changes in their life and improve their health.
This treatment program at Solea Wellness consists of two procedures:
This sequence of procedures proves to be extremely beneficial to the overall health and wellbeing of the body (accelerates metabolism, increases endurance, gives a burst of energy, and a good mood for the whole day). It is verified by experts developing advanced sport and recreational programs.
Recent studies prove that heat therapy can reduce the risk of a heart attack by 31% (tested on 65 patients). It also helps control blood sugar levels and increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin by 30%.
One 7.5-minute heat therapy session with a 15-minute immersion in a cold bath increases your growth hormone by 2.5 times. This figure can be doubled!
Plunging in a tub of cold water is an incredible boost to your health. Here are just five key benefits of the treatment (although there are many more).
A cold plunge is a great way to wake up, and get your body ready with an energetic start to the day. It promotes a positive attitude, and invigorates better than your usual strong coffee or a morning jog. In addition, studies have proven that the treatment combats noradrenaline deficiency, reducing the likelihood of depression, and improving your overall mood.
It restores muscles after increased strain and alleviates pain. It is common practice for athletes to rely on the benefits of a cold plunge, especially after a rigorous workout. Regular cold baths contribute to increased production of neurotransmitters (5 times the norm), reducing pain and relieving inflammation.
It strengthens the immune system and promotes detoxification of the body. The leukocyte and lymphatic system are activated during immersion. This increases the body’s resistance to the negative influences of the environment.
A cold plunge energizes your body and motivates you on a chemical level. The secret is in the increased production of dopamine – the molecule responsible for motivation, concentration, and achievement.
It improves the quality of sleep. Cold plunge therapy lowers cortisol (stress hormone) levels and triggers the autonomic nervous system, which helps to reduce stress levels, relax, and fall asleep faster.
We prepare an individual treatment program, adjusted to your schedule.
The patient puts on a special disposable suit (for safety and sanitation) and is placed in a “cocoon pod” (for up to 30 minutes).
The patient does 15–20 squats to increase their internal body temperature.
The patient lies in a bathtub with cold water (temperature between 39 and 55 °F), taking big breaths. The head remains on the surface during the start of treatment. The duration of one cold plunge is 2–3 minutes (about 30 deep breaths). At the end of the session, you can put your head under the water for a few seconds.
Once dry, the patient does a series of 30 repetitions (leisurely side-to-side lunge squats, inhaling and exhaling deeply, and a simultaneous imitation of a hand strike). Proper breathing and movement will help to warm up the body.
All stages of treatment are supervised by your personal specialist. The duration of the procedure is selected individually.
It depends on the patient. However, it is clinically proven that 3–5 sessions per week reduce the development of dementia by 66%
Yes, flexibility is increased by 205% if the treatment is performed regularly. The treatment also reduces joint pain and stiffness in rheumatoid arthritis.
It complements physical activity, but does not necessarily replace it. For example, heartbeat and blood flow increase during body heating, comparable to running on a treadmill (5–10 minutes) or taking a 30-minute walk.
For example, a 50 year old patient can reach the metabolic age of 37 in just 24 hours of treatment.
What is metabolic age? Metabolic age is an indicator that allows you to compare your metabolic level with the average (correct) metabolic level. This depends on the regularity of physical activity, as well as the quality of nutrition.
If used incorrectly, it can:
