We’re excited to introduce the world to the Dreampod Ice Series. It seems like everyone is getting into cold plunges today. Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for ways to speed up recovery or a biohacker trying to push the limits of your mind and body, our Ice Series is for you.
Here at Dreampod we’re all about options. First up, are our two commercial products, the standard bath and the barrel. Each is crafted using the best quality fiberglass, plastics, and hand polished for the shiniest of finishes. Both have a double hull GRP base with foam insulation for better cold retention. As well as an anti-slip floor.
Our standard Bath is 1600 mm long (over 5 ft.) and allows for even the tallest of people to enjoy the benefits of cold therapy. Our Barrel has a much smaller footprint and accommodates our clients who may be limited on space, but still want the opportunity to freeze.
Next up is our at home option, the Ice Bath Flex. The Flex is an inflatable, reinforced tub design utilizing the same inflatable technology found in modern stand up paddle boards. Once inflated, the walls become rigid and the barrier of air within the walls acts as a natural insulator, helping to keep the water nice and cold.
It’s the perfect option for those looking for an affordable and reliable solution for daily cold immersion.
Regardless of which product you choose, the chiller unit is the same for all 3. It’s compact, quiet, easy to maintain, and is quick to set up.
Cold water immersion constricts the body’s blood vessels and aids in flushing toxins from the body. It also has immense benefits in the reduction of inflammation and swelling throughout the body. After exiting the Ice Bath your body naturally begins to heat itself back up and the blood vessels that were constricted now expand to allow blood flow. This constriction and expansion of the blood vessels can have a lasting effect on blood pressure, overall circulation, and health throughout the body.
Oftentimes people report having a better night’s sleep after an ice bath. This is due to the sympathetic nervous system getting a work out in the ice and your overall central nervous system de-regulating itself.
The physical benefits are incredible but pushing the limits of the body helps train and strengthen the mind. Combine the entire process with breathwork and you’re off to a new you in no time.
The Dreampod Ice Bath pairs perfectly with our Mineral Soaker. We like to think of them as brothers. One covering cold therapy, the other covering hot therapy. Purchase them both and have it all.
