Yes, anyone can take an ice bath in their own tub at home, but it will cost at least $10 in ice and most tubs aren’t large enough for you to stretch out and achieve full body immersion. Also, the water will not hold the temperature because your skin temperature is 94.4 degrees, and the small amount of non-circulating water will continue to rise and melt the ice very quickly.

Our system will maintain within 2 degrees of what we set it at. We keep our water temperature set at 49 degrees but can request as low as 39 degrees, just let us know your customization preference before your appointment.
