Incorporating a SnowRoom into your spa or fitness studio is a tried and tested business decision which will not only provide a wealth of health benefits for guests but also leave them speechless after experiencing an unforgettable wellness experience.

Although cold treatments have been used since ancient times, they’ve always stood in the shadow of hot therapy treatments – until now.

In the modern wellness and fitness sector, cold therapy is becoming an increasingly popular component of physiotherapy, medical wellness and beauty treatments.

Italy-based snow room specialist TechnoAlpin's innovative SnowRoom is the market-leading cold therapy wellness solution which adds value to any environment where it’s installed.

A healthy body and mind

Whether to reduce inflammation, relieve muscle soreness or support mental wellbeing, exposing the body to cold temperatures has been proven to bring numerous health benefits.

In 2021, the Global Wellness Summit’s Global Wellness Trend Report confirmed that positive stress exposure, such as contrast therapy using a SnowRoom, can help support and rebalance the immune system.

Cold treatment has also been shown to help ease some symptoms of depression and anxiety by exposing the body to positive stress, which promotes deep relaxation.

Recovery and regeneration

For fitness enthusiasts, cold therapy treatment is a great way to boost the recovery process after a workout because cold temperatures temporarily reduce pain, providing relief for both muscles and joints. As a result, the body releases endorphins and serotonin which can help to improve joint movement and mobility.

Plus, a session of cold therapy after exercise is said to be the perfect finale thanks to its ability to help the body return to its natural state and temperature.

Contrast therapy

Spa owners and operators are sure to know that the effects of sauna bathing are only achievable when combined with cold temperatures. However, taking a dip into icy water or standing under the bucket shower isn’t a very comforting thought for most people!

Instead, a SnowRoom offers the perfect alternative, where guests can step into a room filled with real powder snow and be transported into a tranquil winter scene.

The gentle cool-down method gives every sauna guest and athlete the opportunity of a holistic cooldown, regardless of their physical condition.

For beginners, deep breaths at -10°C and dry air will cool the airways. And for those willing to go a step further, there is the option to grab some snow in their hands and massage it gently onto their skin.

“The wonderful thing about the SnowRoom is that it makes access to cold applications easier for everyone,” says Sara Brenninger, product manager at TechnoAlpin Indoor.

“Plus, the bonus points are that you don't really get wet, it’s a gentle cooldown option and it’s suitable for all guests, including those who are pain-sensitive. SnowRooms are the perfect addition for any setting, be it fitness, sauna or a private spa.”

Apart from the numerous health benefits, the SnowRoom’s dry cold gives the possibility of a more comfortable cool-down, transports sauna guests and athletes to a natural setting and leaves them with a unique memory.
