A Frigidarium is a cold bathing experience designed for up to six guests, which can be used after using the heat facilities, swimming or hydrotherapy pools. 

Cold plunging is a fairly new phenomenon which has been proven to have health benefits. According to an article from Bupa, cold water therapy can help with muscle stiffness, as well as boosting the immune system.

Spa director of Ramside Spa, Fay Pratt said: “This is a great addition to the spa. Using a plunge pool can lower stress levels, improve concentration and focus, aid the reduction in muscle soreness and boost energy levels.

“It’s great for post workout recovery by helping to regular the heartbeat and kickstarting the body’s recover process.

“We believe this is the perfect addition to our facilities and one which our spa users will really appreciate.”
