In the world of health and wellness, immersing yourself in cold water is becoming enormously popular, with many benefits being reported. Cold water immersion, or Cryotherapy, involves immersing yourself in ice-cold water for up to a few minutes, which has positive effects both physically and mentally. Our own Sturdy Ice Water Bath was recently featured in the Irish publication Positive Life Magazine in an article discussing this phenomenon. Let’s dive in to explore the benefits and why you should consider making it a part of your routine.


Cold Water Immersion: A Game-Changer for Your Body


As endorsed by health influencers, celebrities, and sports professionals, the practice of cold water immersion is transforming the way we approach fitness. The article highlights commentary from Elizabeth Gardner, MD, a renowned sports medicine doctor, and Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Yale School of Medicine. According to Dr. Gardner, this ritual is more than a trend—it’s a game-changer.

“Plunging a single limb – or the entire body – into a tub of cold water for 1 – 3 minutes is becoming an increasingly popular ritual for athletes as well as hard-core exercisers,” says Dr. Gardner.

Enter the Sturdy Ice Water Bath—a durable and versatile solution ideal for athletes, sports club members, and fitness enthusiasts alike. The benefits extend beyond muscle recovery; they touch on mental health, happiness, and concentration. Developed and manufactured locally in Blessington Co. Wicklow, the Sturdy Ice Bath is made from tough MDPE plastic. The handles on the side of the container act as stability aids when entering and exiting the Ice Water Bath. The unique textured surface and moulded bumps on the floor of the unit helps prevent slipping. There is a brass connector at the base on the bath for filling and draining. An optional solid plastic lid can securely cover the Ice Bath to keep it clean and dry when stored, indoors or out.
