Working out harder than usual for that beach-ready summer body?

Make time for recovery and add cold water therapy sessions to your summer well-being routine.

Cryotherapy, ice baths, or cold plunges are all forms of cold therapy where the body is exposed to frigid temperatures for several minutes. Taking you out of your comfort zone, this technique speeds up the recovery process by easing inflammations and muscle pains, including repairing damages due to intense training. Cold water immersion can boost the immune system and increase endorphins for that instant euphoric feeling. Continuous sessions allow the body to build up a tolerance for cold and stress, which can be applied to everyday life.

Here, Emirates Man rounds up the best wellness hubs to try out cold water therapies in Dubai.
